What is Microsoft Teams?
Microsoft Teams is an entirely new experience in bringing people together with conversation, content, and tools. This chat-based workspace allows people to collaborate and do more.
A recent study reveals that 77% of remote works report greater productivity while working off-site. This is one of the advantages of working with the cloud. We don’t necessarily need to be on-site to be productive anymore. Office 365 with business cloud software enables the remote worker to have all the tools necessary to get the job done anywhere.
Skype for Business formerly known as (Microsoft Lync), was introduced to bring together features such as Instant Messaging, Group Chats, Phone Integration and Conference Meetings. However, applications such as Slack brought collaboration with groups something Skype for Business is lacking. It was clear Microsoft had to bring their customers to the Office 365 ecosystem and use Microsoft Teams. With Microsoft Teams you can think of as a digital transformation of an open office one that helps build a more fun and accessible team environment. Microsoft Teams make it easy to share information with others. With Teams, members can create their own channels and you can also create private conversations.
