⦁ Business drivers, requirements and options analysis,
⦁ Project management and control,
⦁ Design,
⦁ Build,
⦁ Migration,

A Group of Teams? Or is that a Team of Groups?

Sherman Woo

Are you confused by the what Outlook Groups are in Office 365? Are you curious about Microsoft Teams and how that compares to Slack? Where does Yammer fit in to all of this? Wait - what about SharePoint team sites!

This session will take a look at the ever-changing world of Microsoft's offerings within the collaboration space. We will explore possible usage scenarios for each. You will walk away form the session with more exposure to each offering, with the hope that it will give you a better sense of which you might want to explore more closely for your own situations.
