ITEXPO Presentation – “What Microsoft Replacing Skype for Business with Teams Means”
February 14, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 11:25 am
Speaker: Vishal Brown, SVP, Professional Services, Yorktel
Initial reaction to Microsoft’s announcement that it would replace its Skype for Business platform with the newer and more modern Teams was a lot of “Ugh!” But, the company also announced a new version of its on-premises platform, indicating it was not about to force its Skype users to have to undergo an immediate and significant change. So, what does the Teams announcement – and integration with Skype for Business – mean to users? What does it mean for the ongoing on-premises vs. cloud debate? Is this a change for the better, or just another headline grab? This session will look under the covers of Microsoft’s latest collaboration technology to help businesses understand how it impacts them and, whether you’re a current Skype for Business user or not, what’s your best MSFT strategy going forward.
