Does the launch of Microsoft Teams mean that Skype, SharePoint and Yammer

will become redundant? Find out with what Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella has to

say and if Microsoft Team will really replace the existing communication stack of


Microsoft has announced the launch of Microsoft Teams, which is a complete hub

for teamwork for Office 365 users. It allows group chats, gives access to content,

tools, people and everything that a person needs to work in Office 365.

But wait a minute?

Does it mean Yammer, Skype and SharePoint or what is known as Microsoft

communication stack are redundant now?

As per Satya Nadella, it won’t go away. It all is here to stay as per the requirement

of every team. He himself check Yammer every morning to find out what’s going

on in his organization. He added, "Yammer is a bulletin board for the entire

organization, Skype is where instant, real-time communications happen." While

talking about Microsoft Teams chat, he said, it works well asynchronously, for

more informal and casual conversations.

Nadella also said, "What underpins all of these tools is a very powerful platform,"

said Nadella. "A common identity, a common profile, across all of these tools

powered by Azure Active Directory."

The fact that Yammer is not going away was emphasized at Microsoft’s Ignite

Conference. Microsoft showed that Yammer and Office 365 will undergo a deeper

integration and also the fact that there were several plans in the pipeline to do

that. There is Skype for Business in Office 365

Instant communication exists via Office 365’s Skype for Business, but once you've

left the chat space, the conversation disappears. There is also Slack, which allows

teams to create their own public or private "chatrooms" and be able to work from

multiple devices. Slack became popular with organizations since it is a more

informal way of communication.

In a video that introduces Microsoft Teams, the benefits of Microsoft Teams are

covered in the most comprehensive way.

Kirk Koenigsbauer, corporate vice president for the Office team adds, “We built

Microsoft Teams because we see both tremendous opportunity and tremendous

change in how people and teams get work done. Teams are now more agile and

organizational structures more flat to keep communications and information


Microsoft Teams is a new and contemporary way for teams to have

conversations. It helps to keep a record of threaded chats and ensures that

everyone involved is engaged. The team conversations are visible to all team

members and also the feature to have private chats. There is also the ability to

have voice and video conferences using Skype.

And guess what?

There is option to add emojis, GIFs, custom memes and stickers.

There’s Word, Excel, PowerPoint, SharePoint, OneNote, Planner, Power BI and

Delve…all built into Microsoft Teams and which can be used by Office 365

users. Basically everything users need for their day-to-day working packed into

one and with the ability to have contemporary way to communicate.

Office 365 users expect enhanced security in Microsoft Teams, and that is what

exactly Microsoft provides- enhanced security. It meets security standards like ISO

27001, ISO 27018, EUMC, SOC 1 Type I & II, SOC 2 Type I and II, HIPAA and FERPA.
