The Modern Workplace: Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams is the successor to Microsoft's Skype for Business platform. It is a real-time cloud communication and collaboration platform for video conferencing, real-time discussions, document sharing and editing, designed to enhance company productivity.

In addition to the traditional unified communications (UC) features of Skype for Business, Teams is designed around a persistent group chat space that integrates several functions constituting a workstream collaboration (WSC) application. Teams becomes a point of entry where members work with a range of Microsoft 365 tools in a group context.

This means that Teams moves beyond just being a WSC application and converges multiple technology categories into a single platform. This functional convergence results in Teams becoming a multi-purpose activity hub for the entire enterprise, regardless of physical or digital location.

Stay Organized and Connected


Share your opinion, and your personality. Send gifs, stickers, and emojis in a group chat or in one-to-one messages.


Easily find, share, and edit files in real time using familiar apps like Word, PowerPoint, and Excel in Teams.


Make and receive calls with internal and external groups using Microsoft Teams Phone, Operator Connect, or Direct Routing.


Instantly go from group chat to video conference with the touch of a button. Teams of 2 or 10,000 can meet in one place, no matter how many places they're in.

Say goodbye to Skype for Business

On July 31, Microsoft is officially retiring its Skype for Business platform. If you're still using Skype, it's time to start planning. Moving to Teams will allow you to maximize your current Microsoft investment, while also helping ensure continued productivity.
