Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is a chat-based workspace as well as a messaging and calling solution for  Office 365. It is helps businesses meet the increasing need for collaboration within teams in everyday work. By using Microsoft Teams, it is easier to bring together people, conversations and content. For this purpose, Microsoft Teams offers elements such as chat, group email and calendar, content co-creation, audio/video meetings and cross-company connections. Microsoft Teams stands out from other similar tools like Yammer and Outlook Teams because of the confidentiality and security as well as the speed of the data handling.

Teams is built for the cloud on a highly scalable microservices architecture that’s efficient in bandwidth consumption, provides more robust telemetry, and enables maintenance and upgrades with minimal disruption. As a result, there are faster meeting join times and a better browser experience without needing to download plug-ins. This modern infrastructure makes it easy to tap into Microsoft Cognitive Services—which include transcription, translation, speech recognition, and machine learning capabilities—and have the power to make communication and collaboration easier and more effective.

Microsoft Teams can now fully replace Skype for Business Online. The current Skype for Business to Teams Roadmap can be found here, showing currently available and planned features.

In addition, Direct Routing enables you to bring your own telephone service to Teams, which along with Calling Plans provides you additional choice for dial tone in Microsoft Teams.
