Microsoft Ignite 2020 is quickly approaching. The world has changed a lot since the new Yammer was announced last November and this year’s event will be entirely digital, making it available to attendees instantly around the globe.

The new Yammer is now generally available, which means we’ve got a lot to share about what’s new and how you can use Yammer to drive community and employee experience.
