Microsoft Teams Video Conferencing Solutions- A Step Towards Better Visual Collaboration
November 26, 2018
In 2017, Microsoft announced a major news that Microsoft Teams would become a primary client for intelligent communications in Office 365, replacing Skype for Business. The existing users of Skype for Business can upgrade to Microsoft Teams, to avail the benefits of complete communication and collaboration capabilities and create a "single hub for teamwork."
The goal of this migration to Microsoft Teams is giving the users a single place for their conversations, contacts, and content; and revolutionizing calling & meeting experiences.
Why Microsoft Teams ?
Primarily, Microsoft Teams is a new chat based collaboration tool, that enables the teams, dispersed in geographically dispersed locations to work together and exchange data and information (chat, video, voice calls, file sharing), through a common platform.
Further, within the Microsoft realm, there is :
i) Outlook and Exchange for Persistent Messaging;
ii) Lync/ Skype4Biz Client for Real-Time Communications,
iii) SharePoint for Sharing Documents.
All these tools, which were previously dispersed, get aligned under one roof - Microsoft Teams - to avoid chaos and for users to remain focused.
New Set of Collaboration Tools and Benefits They Bring
i) Messages, meetings, notes, documents along with real-time access to teammates who are online, all are at one place.
ii) Microsoft Teams is a modern cloud based infrastructure that helps the users to avail the benefits of Artificial Intelligence, LinkedIn, Microsoft Graph and can even add Third party applications.
iii) Your work gets more streamlined and there is no need to send extra emails to the employees to make any sort of announcement.
For instance, if there is a need to send a certain document to all the employees, the user just has to upload it to Teams, enabling everybody to get attention to it, through a notification.
iv) A blurred background in videos eliminate all sorts of distractions in a meeting.
v) People who are unable to attend any meeting, can have a playback of the recorded content in Microsoft Teams.
vi) Integration with legacy video conferencing devices.
vii) Secure Image Annotation, where images can be shared only under security constraints.
viii) Clutter-free and high-quality audio and video experience, while maintaining simplicity
