Microsoft Teams | A Hub for Teamwork in Office 365

Microsoft Teams | A Hub for Teamwork in Office 365

Microsoft announced their ‘new vision for intelligent communications’ recently at the Microsoft Ignite 2017 conference, which is to move towards merging everyday communication tasks that users navigate daily into a single application or teamwork hub in Office 365. The typical knowledge worker switches between many different Microsoft applications throughout their work day when interacting with files, meetings, conversations, phone calls, etc. Microsoft is paving the way for their Teams application to be the core communications client for collaborating as a group within Office 365.

Microsoft Teams was launched worldwide in March 2017 and is available to subscribers with the following plans: Business Essentials, Business Premium and Enterprise E1, E3, and E5. At the core, Microsoft Teams is a persistent chat and teamwork hub for Office 365. Built on top of Office 365 Groups and SharePoint, Microsoft Teams can tie together other Office 365 applications into a single client including Exchange, OneDrive and Skype for Business.

SQL 2000: Out of Date But It's Not Too Late

SQL 2000: Out of Date But It's Not Too Late

If you’re still running SQL 2000 or SQL 2005 in your environment, you probably already know about the significant support costs. And, I would be willing to bet that your Security team is telling you that it’s a considerable risk that needs that must be addressed. The team that oversees applications is also probably telling you that these systems can’t be upgraded because they are 32-bit systems and won’t run on the newer 64-bit platforms. To top it off, the business tells you that the vendor won’t provide support on the new platforms or your host will charge a considerable fee to allow you to run the outdated versions of SQL on their servers.

When thinking about what you need to do, do you feel like you have only two options?

Microsoft Office 365 Groups – Making Your Job Easier

Microsoft Office 365 Groups – Making Your Job Easier

In our blog Introducing Groups in Office 365, we discussed how Office 365 Groups facilitates the storage of information so it’s accessible across different applications but remains secure and easily to manage. Office 365 Groups helps teams collaborate in their desired application, including: Outlook, SharePoint, Skype for Business, Planner, Yammer, OneNote, and Microsoft Teams.

But, it’s not just your administrative staff that will benefit from the use of Office 365 Groups. Your IT staff will also thank you for making end user access and management much easier to setup and administer. With a much less complex and time-consuming process, Office 365 Groups makes assigning permissions easy by automatically assigning users access to the tools they require. Groups can also make it easier to manage both security groups and distribution groups at the same time.
