Microsoft Drops Yammer Prices, Sends Message To The Market That It Is All In On Social | TechCrunch

Probably not a happy leading indicator for Jive and other social business players
"Yammer has historically offered four different options. Microsoft has reduced them to two: a free version called Yammer Basic and a paid version called Yammer Enterprise. Yammer Enterprise, which will be offered with Office 365 Enterprise, will drop from $15 per person per month to $3 per month.
Like Salesforce.com and others, Microsoft is talking about unified identity. That’s a fancy way of saying Microsoft will make Yammer, Sharepoint and other tools accessible through a single identity. We heard a bit about this at Build. The idea is to make it possible to log in, use Yammer as an activity stream, Skype for calls, and Office365 to manage documents."
