A light-hearted look at the ways Microsoft Teams has enabled business and transformed ways of working this year
At the start of 2020, you most likely had a carefully considered roadmap for your digital transformation. Fast forward less than three months and that future vision suddenly accelerated towards you at the speed light.
The Coronavirus forced the digital revolution to pick up pace more so than any other economical, technological, or cultural driver. Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella said back in April that “we’ve seen two years’ worth of digital transformation in two months”. That was eight months ago, and there’s been a lot of fast and furious evolution since then.
There’s no denying that it has been a challenging year for nearly all of us. But despite all the uncertainty, the hurdles and the defeats encountered throughout 2020, many organisations have fortunately adapted. We’ve seen a phenomenal display of resilience, agility and the willingness to embrace digital transformation as one of the key enabler’s to business continuity and success.
Absolutely pivotal to that rapid transformation is SaaS and specifically, Microsoft Teams. No other product has grown so quickly in Microsoft’s history, amassing a whopping 115m daily users. Teams stepped up to the mark. It enabled employees to use their own devices from home, connected colleagues and partners anywhere in the world, inspired creativity and seamless collaboration. And, most importantly, it evolved to meet our needs.
As avid Teams users and early adopters, we might be biased, but we believe Microsoft Teams enabled the remote working world in 2020.
So as somewhat of a tribute to Teams for Christmas time, we look at 12 light-hearted ways Microsoft Teams changed the modern workplace this year.
