Microsoft Teams

When Microsoft Teams were first announced in November 2016, the first thing that came to mind was here’s another application, another “tool” to make life easier;  why not just use Skype, SharePoint, and Yammer?   In a way, that’s true.  Why not use the tools already in place?  I think what Microsoft Teams accomplishes is what those other three applications does separately.  I like to think of Microsoft Teams as a real-time forum to chat, review content, and even participate in voice and video conferences with the integration of Skype.

For a full review and demo of the product check out the Office 365 blog   It will be interesting to see how this will play with Project Online and other management tools.

At this time, only business subscribers in plans such as “Business Essentials, Business Premium, and Enterprise E1, E3, and E5” have access to Microsoft Teams.  E4 subscribers who bought that plan before its retirement also will get access.

Thanks for reading,
