quotes and quotations “There are four reasons that have been ballyhooed around for this acquisition to happen: Microsoft wants to show it is social, Microsoft bought the talent and experience (which is the main reason cited by Steve Ballmer, CEO of Microsoft), Microsoft wanted to buy clients that would not have chosen SharePoint and convert them, and Microsoft is building a convoluted “something” using Skype, SharePoint, Office, and Yammer.” – Esteban Kolsky

Today’s WhatIs.com Word of the Day is Yammer, the enterprise social service  just snapped up by Microsoft for $1.2 billion.  And that’s not a typo.
