Microsoft Teams: The Ultimate Collaboration Hub
Now, more so than ever, having a reliable communication tool to keep our employees connected and productive is critical to how we work. As many may or may not know the Skype for Business platform will be retired on July 31st 2021, and so, for those who have relied on Skype — or for those who are looking to upgrade their current platform — choosing another business communication option will need to become a priority over the next several months.
Have you considered migrating to Teams?
Teams is the ultimate hub for communication and collaboration in Microsoft 365 that integrates the talent, materials, and tools your team needs to be more engaged in a truly effective workforce collaboration.

How Managed Solution Can Help Make the Switch
As with any migration, it’s important to understand your existing infrastructure and how that will translate into your new modern workspace. While you will experience the same feature sets between Skype and Teams, the underlying implementation methodologies can differ greatly.
Here’s a basic overview of how we support the transition:
Phase 1 | Our Managed Solutions Teams migration experts start the process with a discovery of your current infrastructure. In this phase, we’ll help you develop a customized strategy for moving your organization from your existing platform into Teams.
Phase 2 | Then, we can help ease the transition to a full Teams environment by setting up Skype to run in Coexistence Mode, allowing Teams and Skype to run side-by-side as you gradually move your entire workforce to Teams.
Here are a few questions you may want to consider as we move along the migration journey:
- Which specific upgrade scenarios are applicable to your organization?
- Have you identified your current deployment model, use case scenarios, and key considerations that’s best suited to your organization?
- What is the best timeline for your organization’s upgrade journey based on messaging, meetings, and the specific call requirements for your business?
- Will any additional work be required to complete the journey?
Phase 3 | After the migration process is complete, our experts will work with your team to lead administrator and end-user training and support to drastically improve your remote working conditions in no time.
