​Topic: Workplace Collaboration, the benefits, challenges, and opportunities

In just the last few months, Microsoft has made various significant changes to Office 365 collaboration capabilities affecting Office Groups, Office Graph and Teams, as well as repositioning the role of exiting collaboration solutions including Yammer, Skype and SharePoint. 

With all these changes, it’s no wonder many organizations and end-users alike find themselves confused as to what application should be used for what purpose. Users should not assume a one-size all approach when choosing a collaboration tool, but understand that the right collaboration tool depends on the purpose of the collaboration and at the minimalist level be broken down into persistent open collaboration and single-entity collaboration. 

During this session, we’ll explore the recent changes Microsoft has made to its suite of collaboration tools and help users understand how to choose the right collaboration tool breaking down team-based collaboration vs. project-based collaboration. ​
