What’s more, using the Yammer network helps build a body of knowledge that’s instantly accessible by any coworker at any time and from any device. With Yammer's integration with Office 365 Groups, Yammer is the perfect place for sharing ideas with your outer circle. Check out the Microsoft Yammer Interactive Demo!
