The Yammer enterprise “social suite”, with Ticker, Pages, and Files

This is a long anticipated play by Yammer to expand the foot print of its platform. I haven’t had a chance to play with these new features just yet, so can’t comment on the user experience or maturity of the new tools. However, I am wondering how this will affect Yammer’s business model in respect to the enterprise and government sectors – the more it adds, the more chance that a purely viral deployment approach will bump into other enterprise applications and systems, which may result in the need for a more formal adoption and procurement approach.

UPDATE: Alan Lepofsky provides a more detailed review and point of view.
