From Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams - Why, how and when? (Users only X-change)

Location:Business Faculty, Brussels



Today, with our tools for collaborating and communicating between staff, teams, companies, the possibilities seem endless and the technology is taking giant leaps forward. Now we have popular collaboration tool Skype for Business upgrading to Microsoft Teams.


While Microsoft Teams offers a wider scope and array of possibilities, also it requires thorough preparation:  consequently, companies find it challenging to roll out.


During this session, we'll learn what lies ahead, gaining insights on the optimal road and potential pitfalls as we move towards Microsoft Teams.


While we don’t usually set up sessions on specific products, we are making an exception as so many of our members use Skype for Business and have questions.


Please note that in order to guarantee an interactive discussion, we are keeping the number of attendees limited, so be sure to book your spot in time.
