Proliferation tends to be a consequence any time a new technology trend takes off, and enterprise social networks are a prime example. Jive, Yammer and Salesforce Chatter are all among the competitors in this arena, and more than a few organizations are struggling under the weight of several of them.
That’s where Dell is aiming to help. The company’s new Migration Manager for Enterprise Social, launched Monday, lets organizations consolidate Jive content into Microsoft Yammer. In so doing, Dell says it can help eliminate the cost and burden of supporting redundant social networks, including the challenge of keeping track of duplicated content.
As a Microsoft partner, Dell’s goal also includes helping organizations maximize their investment in Office 365 and Yammer. In a nutshell, the new Migration Manager for Enterprise Social helps companies discover the content they want to move and then migrate that content from Jive to Yammer while retaining permissions, metadata and rich text.
