Yes I work for ViewDo Labs, but these thoughts are my own.
Here are some additional writeups on the announcement:
ViewDo Labs Launches ViewPoint Enterprise, Provides Insight and Analytics for Enterprise Social Networks – “Industry’s First Cross-Platform Analytics Application Increases Engagement, Validates Investments and Measures Influence Across Leading Collaboration Platforms”
Additional thoughts and a few screenshots:
The folks at ViewDo Labs (My new employer) are all very excited about the big launch today. Anyone who has been using the freemium version of ViewPoint can now upgrade to the enterprise version.
Real world Social Graph of my Team analytics in Yammer usage. They’re all cool with it. Shows the most influential followers. The number next to the name is their rank in our network and shows first 15 followers (then you page).
I was excited to see how many people today on the Yammer roadmap call were anxious about analytics. The answer was to export your data and go to town… build something or use partners… like ViewDo Labs ViewPoint.
Some may know that prior to the acquisition Axceler was working on a product called ViewPoint. In the acquisition Axceler spun off ViewDo Labs which has finished a federated dashboard to display Yammer and SharePoint Analytics, Listening/Monitoring, and Influencer metrics in a single dashboard. You can compare your top users, top sites and groups, and see top influencers and top users plus a lot more.
To install the ViewPoint simply go to https://app.viewdolabs.com/Account/Create to get started. You’ll create an account connect the applicable platform such as yammer or SharePoint and authorize access for the app.
After some processing you’ll see a rich set of dashboards.
In the image above you can see the Top Yammer and SharePoint Users as well as Yammer groups and SharePoint groups sites.
The way it works if you sign up for a trial or simply install the app it starts as fully featured as enterprise is, then drops into freemium mode after 14 days… so there really is no risk, only reward. The Dashboard including activity reporting and adoption continues to come in. Free enhanced analytics at a minimum, but rich data on influencers and compliance monitoring and listening for a buck a user with more features coming with no additional cost.
