What is Microsoft Teams?

30/05/2020

Microsoft Teams is the central tool or service for teamwork in Microsoft 365. Teams is a chat-based workspace that brings together chat, meetings, calls, and Microsoft 365 (OneDrive, Word, Excel, PowerPoint …) in a single tool. And it’s built on Microsoft’s confidence in security and compliance that is vital for today’s business.

Teams work in four basic areas to create a digital workspace for high-performance teams: communicate, collaborate, personalize, and work with confidence.

Communication

Teams meet the communication needs of diverse resources by providing a complete meeting and calling solution, including chat, voice, and video. You can use Teams for informal group or individual chats using the Teams desktop or web client, or directly on the phone if you are on the go. In addition, you can have an open conversation on a channel so that users can share information in a transparent way to speed up decision making. Going from a chat to a face-to-face meeting is easy, helping you break geographic barriers.

Collaboration

When it comes to collaboration, Teams’ tight integration with Microsoft 365 enables today’s multigenerational resources to use the Office applications they are familiar with (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, SharePoint, Planner, and even Power BI) within the context of Teams. Teams incorporate all the services so that you can easily share files and co-author them.

Personalization

With Teams, you no longer have to jump between Microsoft 365 applications and services. Since Teams is the hub of all the services and tools your team uses on a daily basis, you can customize it with tabs, connectors, and bots to include applications. and the services you need, including the most common third-party applications. Teams is an extensible platform that allows you to create applications and integrate them with business processes.

Work with confidence

Microsoft Teams has the security, compliance, and enterprise-level manageability expected of Microsoft 365.
