Chat, meet, call, collaborate, and work from anywhere. With COVID19 the use of Teams has skyrocketed.
Microsoft Teams is a cloud-based teamwork and collaboration platform that can help your organization improve productivity. The service integrates with a company’s Office 365 subscription enabling office conductivity and features extensions with non-Microsoft products. Microsoft Teams is a competitor to services such as Slack and is the evolution and upgrade path from Microsoft Skype for Business. Microsoft Teams is the go-to hub for teamwork and collaboration within organizations where teams can bring everything together – voice, video, chatting, document collaboration, and meetings – into one shared workspace.
As with all Microsoft Products, privacy and security remain a critical part to any organization’s structure. This foundational building block is crucial – especially when connecting with 3rd Party Apps. Under Satya Nadella’s direction, Microsoft has transformed from a propriety platform to a connect platform. Connect with any of your existing applications including:
- Git Hub
- Google Analytics
- Azure DevOps Server
- Adobe Creative Suite
