During Microsoft Ignite | The Tour, Microsoft employees collected feedback and questions around Microsoft Teams from end users all over the world. As an outcome, they published on Microsoft Teams Blog an interesting post that group together the Top 10 Microsoft Teams questions from customers around the world.
Among the 10 frequently asked qiestions, one in particular got my attention: “Why should I move from Skype for Business to Teams? How do I make this transition? “
Not that this question comes as unexpected. I was curious to read the content of the blog around this question. The reason is simple: Silverside has an entire eBook dedicated to this topic. And the importance of the topic is confirmed by Microsoft. A topic that needs to be urgently addressed, in order to help customers with the reasons behind the need of a migration (and the migration itself).
Microsoft’s answer to this question recites:
“As people are collaborating more, we see the opportunity to more seamlessly integrate our communication capabilities into Teams so users can have a single place for their conversations, contacts, and content. With Teams, we can also leverage the modern cloud infrastructure, and create new experiences for meetings and calling, including preparation, delivery, and follow-up.”
From this quote is pretty clear that Microsoft is strongly encouraging Skype for Business customers to migrate to Teams. And in order to incetivate this behaviour, Microsoft is triyng to help with the migration and user adoption of Teams. Indeed, there are many official resources available to support customers in this journey. The following references and resources were listed under the quote in the blog previosuly cited:
- A success framework to help optimize your transition to Teams
- A tutorial to guide you to the recommended upgrade paths and resources available to support you in your journey
- Why Microsoft think you should move to Teams
These are only some of the resources that Microsoft offers to help you (and guide you) through the migration from Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams. But if you still feel confused or you need a more structured guide, Silverside created a full eBook that you can downlaod for free: “Your Journey from Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams“.
