The New Chat-Based Workspace in Office 365

Microsoft Teams

Available for preview in 181 countries and in 18 languages, Microsoft Teams elevates your collaboration experience.  Seamless integration with the existing Office applications and intuitive controls make Microsoft Teams easy for most people to understand.  The workspace is changing every day, more people are working remotely than ever before, and collaboration needs to keep pace.  Microsoft Teams aspires to create a digital environment that is more open, makes work more visible, and is integrated and accessible to keep everyone on the same page.

Chat

Like a modern conversation with threaded chats, Microsoft Teams enables everyone on the team to see what was said and when.  Missed a day?  You can stay current on what was discussed by looking back at the group conversation.  If you want to elevate the conversation you can personalize it with emojis, stickers GIFs and custom memes. So now everyone can have a little fun in the discussion and emphasize their points with pictures. 

Hub for teamwork

Word, Excel, PowerPoint, SharePoint, OneNote, Planner, Power BI and Delve are all built into Microsoft Teams for a complete toolbox at your fingertips. In addition, intelligent services are interwoven throughout the workspace to optimize information relevancy, discovery and sharing. 

Customizable

Each team is unique and each workspace is different.  Microsoft Teams is configurable through rich extensibility and an open API.  Because it also shares the same Connector model as Microsoft Exchange, it allows updates from third-party services such as Twitter.  Microsoft is also including full support for the Microsoft Bot Framework to bring intelligent first- and third-party services to your unique team environment.

Security

It’s Microsoft… do I need to say more?  Just in case you were wondering about specifics, Microsoft Teams will support key compliance standards including EU Model Clauses, ISO 27001, SOC 2 HIPAA and many more. The data is encrypted both in transit and at rest, and Microsoft Teams is hosted in their hyper-scale global network of data centers.
