  • Yammer never got the integration it deserved from Microsoft so it will be interesting to see how Teams works.

  • The growth of technology never ceases to amaze me. Wonder what we'll have in 10 years, heck the next 5 years.

    There will still be Microsoft Teams, but it won't be the Teams we have today. It will be a new application, but also have another client also called Teams or Teams for Business that was once an independent product* that Microsoft bought and rebranded. There will be little resemblance to the Teams service that launched in 2017.

    *May even be Slack.

  • If Teams works as good as Onedrive, I will use it equally as much (not at all).

  • We've tried Teams and I don't like the layout and how it organised things.  They looked at Slack, and said we can do a Slack Skype hybrid and did, sort of.  Meh, time will tell.  We have Slack now and wanted to see how Teams stacked up, it didn't.

  • We've been trying to integrate teams into our workflow. The fact that it has a lot of UI rednering problems, crashes, and doesn't integrate properly with the o365 portal means we won't be depending on it any time soon. As of the moment, we use Slack.

  • Been using Teams since mid-November and it has proven to be useful; we had no past investment in a competing tool, and we have a heavy investment in O365, so it made sense to try it.

    Definitely needs some more work on the service tie-ins (better Planner integration, presence tie-ins, among others) but it has been stable as anything on our thick clients (all Win10Pro). The iOS app bogs quickly with too much multimedia embedding, to the point of being unusable in channel chat.

    Not at all disappointed with it yet. Curious to see where it winds up.

  • Microsoft has launched Teams, a chat-based collaboration app that is free to all Office 365 users. 

    Just wanted to point out that it's only included with 365 Business Essentials/Business Premium and Enterprise E1, E3, and E5. It is not available to all 365 users.

    Yes, this. First thing I did was go to the site to check it out and it's not available for any of my users which are on Business and Pro Plus. None of them had the option with my specific plans.

  • We tried to use Teams, hoping it would be better than Skype... Turns out having 3 chat programs is detrimental to the use of chat apps.

    Oh well, I wasn't that impressed with it. Just another thing I had to type my password into.

  • I think they will eventually phase Yammer out - is it even used frequently by the masses?

  • Is it bad that none of these new products are favorites of mine? VIPRE Advanced Security seems interesting but at $12 per month per user l would hate to get the bill for a year with 1,000 users.

  • Vipre didn't get the memo that there's no such thing as a single solution for enterprise security?

  • Teams leads to an unorganized mess of data--especially since its a power to the users kind of app. I don't understand what problem it was trying to solve.

  • I saw your post at https://community.spiceworks.com/topic/post/6716975

    The security firm VIPRE has launched VIPRE Advanced Security for Business, which it describes as a "single solution that provides the industry's top-rated endpoint protection, anti-phishing and email security to defend against ransomware, zero-day malware and other threats evading traditional antivirus." It is currently offering Advanced Security for Business for $12 per month per user. "SMBs are concerned about ransomware, zero-day attacks and other advanced threats, but they can be easily overwhelmed by too many security products available to them," says VIPRE's chief product officer Usman Choudhary in a press release. "So we are making it simple for SMBs. We are offering them a single solution that provides top-rated anti-malware so they always have the highest level of protection they need when they need it." Features include malicious URL blocking, mobile device control and encryption, ransomware protection, and browser exploit protection, among other things.


    Hi Everyone,

    Julie here, I work for VIPRE. While VIPRE Advanced Security for Business is a single single solution that provides top-rated endpoint protection, anti-phishing and email security to defend against ransomware, zero-day malware and other threats, the pricing is wrong here.

    It's actually $12 a seat per YEAR. So that's only $1 a month per seat. 

    If anyone is interested in learning more about VIPRE Advanced security shoot me an email or check out our website: http://www.vipreantivirus.com/business

    Thanks!

    Hey Jesse,

    I might be biased, but VIPRE Advanced Security is very interesting :)

    I replied to the thread already, but just wanted to let you know, the pricing is wrong here.

    It's actually $12 a seat per YEAR. So that's only $1 a month per seat.

    If you're interested in learning more about it, shoot me an email and I'll put you in touch with someone who can help. Or just check out our website: http://www.vipreantivirus.com/business

    THANK YOU for that! This is what we're having such a big issue with. We have quite a few users that only have kiosk licenses and regular licenses. Not everyone in our company has enterprise.

    I agree, Teams is definitely a move in the right direction. From what I know, it's basically built on top of Groups so it's nicely integrated across the other tools in O365 (SharePoint, OneDrive, OneNote, etc.) It feels like more of a "part" of the experience, than something bolted on to it.
