TIBCO tibbr
tibbr is the first social computing tool specifically built for the workplace that allows the right information to find you. Unlike social networking applications that focus on the concept of "following people," tibbr is the first to take an entirely new approach to social computing by allowing you to follow subjects, applications, and social event streams.

Yammer
Yammer is revolutionizing internal corporate communications by bringing together all of a company’s employees inside a private and secure enterprise social network. Although Yammer is as easy to use as alternative consumer products like Facebook or Twitter, it is enterprise-class software built from the ground up to drive business objectives.

2014 - Yammer adds conversations to OneDrive and SharePoint Online files - a new advantage over TIBCO tibbr



Microsoft has unveiled today the new social feature for Office 365 - document conversations – which embeds the social collaboration capabilities of Yammer into the Office apps. Here’s how document conversations work. When you open a file in your browser from your cloud store, you see the file on the left with a contextual Yammer conversation in a pane on the right. You can collapse and expand the Yammer pane as needed. You can do more than join in a conversation from the Yammer pane. You can also post a message, @mention your coworkers, and publish to a Yammer group—either public or private. Because it’s Yammer you can also view and participate in conversations outside your document, on your mobile device, in Microsoft Dynamics CRM or any app where a Yammer feed is embedded. Document conversations are progressively being rolled out to our customers during the course of this summer where it will then be available across all sites within a tenant.

2012 - tibbr GEO - Augmented reality in enterprise social network to win over Yammer



Tibbr - is one of the enterprise twitter-clones, created by Tibco. And it has to compete with such services as Yammer, Salesforce Chatter, IBM Connections, NewsGator and dozens of others. In these circumstances - it's not enough to make a quality product - you need to jump over your head. That's what Tibco is doing. The new feature - Tibbr GEO - is an enterprise geo-location service with augmented reality elements. How does it work? Imagine doctor coming to patient's room - he takes out his smartphone, opens Tibbr and sees the history of messages about this patient, posted by his colleagues. Or airport agent coming to a gate sees that it's closed - he opens Tibbr, and finds out that the flight was moved to another gate. Or engineer comes into the work shop, looks at the machines through his smartphone and sees that one machine has low oil, and another has broken part.

Its interesting, that objects checked-in by any employees in the geo-service - become the social network participants, and one can subscribe to their updates. For example, the engineer can subscribe for updates of the broken machine, and will receive a notification as soon as it's repaired.
