MAV Technology Yammer Community

MAV Technology has established a Yammer community to share information and ideas about the effective delivery of ICT solutions for councils. The network has more than 600 active members across the Victorian Local Government sector.

Yammer works in a similar way to Facebook and Twitter, except that it has been designed specifically for business use. It allows businesses, councils and other special interest groups to generate private and secure enterprise social networks to discuss issues, ideas and experiences; share resources; and self-organise. Unlike email, Yammer creates a searchable database of conversations from which anyone in the network can benefit, not just those who were a part of the original discussion.

Access to the MAV Technology network is strictly controlled. Only authorised council representatives (with an active council email address) are granted access, which means users can confidently share information with their peers in relative privacy.

Yammer discussions have resulted in initiation and reinvigoration of important ICT related projects, including the Child Development Information System, Cloud Services Research and Guidelines, Open Council Data Toolkit and the development of various collaborative procurement contracts.

If you wish to join the Yammer community, please go to Yammer and request to join here – private Yammer network. Once we receive your request, and if you are an employee of a Victorian Council (, we will approve your request, which will trigger a notification for you.
