SKILLS & TRICKS
Microsoft Teams is now available for O 365 Users and a lot is being talked about, from Slack comparison to its features and how / when to use it. I was under the dilemma like most users on how to get started with it and when to use it? If all of what is said, is available in Teams then why do we have Yammer, Outlook, Delve, SharePoint Intranet, OneDrive, etc.
I have broken down this post in to two and here is the first part which actually lets you do the planning. After doing a bit of research and playing around with it, i was able to come up with the following:
- O 365 Package
- Exchange & SharePoint Hybrid or Online
The two above will help you in starting the conversation on Teams in the right direction.
Questions you should ask your customers or internally in the organization to layout the path for using Microsoft Teams.
We often face the challenge of convincing customers that O 365 is the right choice for Digital Workplace and it addresses nearly every aspect with builtin functionality.
In the developed countries its much easier but if you are some where in the APAC region and particularly in South East Asia you will get a list of objections and if your Sales is not up to the game they might give up on the deal.
Below is a simple list which i am sharing and you can add more stuff in to it for Microsoft Teams, Planner, Delve, etc
I have been working with SharePoint for 8 years now and nearly every client I have come across wants an intranet on it. SharePoint is a monster in which one needs to tame before it purrs for you, for your team, and for your organization in order to achieve ROI, Goals, Collaboration, Productivity and User Adoption.
Strategy is the key to success in any SharePoint implementation. Just a few months ago, a client requested a SharePoint Intranet portal. At the pre kick-off call, we at Niteco were excited to align strategies in order for us to conquer this monster; only then could we call it a successful implementation.
