So you've got Teams... now what?

The use of Microsoft Teams (Teams) skyrocketed in 2020, largely due to the need to get staff working from home quickly and collaborating seamlessly. Microsoft reported a greater than 50% increase in Teams usage in the latter half of 2020. Furthermore, IBRS clients report that the rapid uptake of Teams during lockdowns has not abated as people return to work. The value of collaborative working environments has been fully demonstrated, and there is no turning back. In short, Teams is one of the platforms spearheading the introduction of deep collaboration.

Deep collaboration is where new collaborative working environments fundamentally alter not only how people work together, but the processes of how work gets done, who does it, where it’s done, and most significantly for this guide, your organisation’s information lifecycle.

“Deep collaboration is disruptive.”
