Microsoft will combine its Yammer sales team of about 100 representatives into its Office 365 sales team, according to Talkin’ Cloud
This decision comes after the company announced in early March that it was going to offer Office 365 and Yammer together as part of enterprise agreements. Yammer is a web-based collaboration tool.
The company had been talking about moving the Yammer sales team into its Office 365 team since the Yammer acquisition last year, but hasn’t officially announced that it will do so until recently, likely to avoid alienating existing Yammer customers, Talkin’ Cloud reported.
