Microsoft’s Skype for Business and Teams continues to be one of the most talked about topics in business communications. Organisations across the globe are facing a vast array of challenges including security, integration, user adoption and functionality when it comes to how best to communicate with colleagues, suppliers and customers alike.
At September’s Microsoft Ignite event in Orlando, Florida, the software giant officially confirmed its plans to replace Skype for Business with Microsoft Teams in the future as part of their push to create a more “intelligent communications” solution.
With news leaks suggesting that Microsoft Teams would indeed be evolving into much more than a collaboration workspace within Office 365, it was proposed that the service was set to become the core communications client that acts as a centralised hub for all of Office 365’s communication capabilities.
Having only been released at the start of 2017, Teams is already a huge success with many businesses using the content and instant messaging tools it provides to collaborate more effectively than ever before.
