I loved to be in Helsinki this Saturday. Great audience and great organization from the Jussi's!
Here is my presentation:
Microsoft just released Microsoft Teams to all Office 365 tenants. Microsoft Teams is available in 181 countries and in 19 languages to customers with Office 365 Enterprise or Business plans.
Office 365 currently have around 85 million active customers that now can use Microsoft Teams to empower communication trough a new chat-based workspace.
What is Microsoft Teams?
Microsoft Teams is the new chat-based tool in Office 365. Microsoft Teams gives a brand new experience bringing people, conversations and content all together. Microsoft Teams is built on four core promises:
A chat infrastructure for today’s teams
Microsoft Teams bring a state of the art chat experience to modern teams. With Teams we get threaded and persistent chat to keep all team members updated regarding the team discussions. In GA Microsoft Teams is possible to do audio and video calling on the Android App. This feature is schedule to be available shortly in the IOS and Windows Mobile App. Now is more easy to add email conversations to the conversation under Teams, you can just email to a channel!!!
Hub for teamwork
Teams today not only use chat but need to share documents have a quick voice of video call and even share some documents and emails directly on the chat system. It's now possible to Share documents and emails in the teams chat. Documents are still manage by SharePoint. You can add Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, SharePoint and Power BI workloads into Teams.
Not all teams work in the same way and the chat system should be able to customize to the way teams work. You can customize the team workspace with tabs, connectors and bots. You can integrate today you Team workspace with other systems like Visual Studio Team Services, SAP, Trello, ... You can also use one of the many bots available now and you can also build your own bot using the Microsoft Bot Framework
in order to accomplish your needs.
Security and Compliance
Usually teams share Highly confidential information that should not be release to the public or competition. Microsoft Teams supports global standards like SOC 1, SOC 2, EU Model Clauses, ISO27001 and HIPAA. Microsoft also added for GA audit log search, eDiscovery and legal hold.
To learn more about Microsoft Teams and how it works, join the Ask Us Anything session on the Microsoft Tech Community
on March 22nd at 9:00 am (UTC-7).
You can find more information on the following Microsoft Teams team posts:
It has been a common request to be able to granular assign administrative permissions to different users/services in Office 365. Until now the only option was to give “Global Administrator” permissions to all admin users. Even if a specific user would only manage one of the Office 365 Services like SharePoint, Skype for Business, Exchange, he would have admin privileged in all services. This was until now! Back in May at Ignite 2015, Microsoft announced a major improvement – Workload-specific admin roles - and it’s going to be rolled out as part of the monthly update process. For those with the First release option enable, this should be already deployed (or will be very soon). Just edit the user roles of one of your users and you will get this options (Limited Admin Role):
