Microsoft offers Yammer Enterprise licensing for Office 365 Education, Midsize Business plans

Microsoft is taking a step this week to continue its push to integrate social capabilities into the enterprise.

The Office team will add Yammer Enterprise to all of its Office 365 Education and Office 365 Midsize Business plans, a move the team said would help “support its vision” for enterprises having Office 365 and social capabilities grow more closely together, the company said in a blog post.

Customers using these plans will now receive a license to use Yammer Enterprise, meaning they no longer have to purchase licenses for Yammer Enterprise for external users to take advantage of in their external networks. The licensing change could reduce the cost of collaboration across organizations, Microsoft said.

The move follows the company’s trend of creating a more social workplace, a concept that it first introduced during this year’s SharePoint and Microsoft Exchange conferences.
