Which method to use when provisioning Microsoft Teams

Yes, the title is a play on words; namely the overused “which tool to use when” that circulates around Office 365.

When it comes to provisioning Microsoft Teams teams, there are a few different approaches available to managing (more so, restricting) the potential sprawl of teams that get created.

In my latest post for AvePoint (which is actually a sampler from my Teams in Education eBook, but is applicable to most organisations), I talk through the approaches available for provisioning teams, and what’s good and bad about each.

My 2c on why there will not be a lightweight version of Microsoft Teams

Since the preview of Microsoft Teams, a number of people (myself included) have wanted a ‘lite’ version of the Microsoft Teams desktop client. Something that was effectively similar to the current Skype for Business experience, without all the other actual¬†team bits.

The logic behind the ask is so that ultimately, organisations can switch to using the Microsoft Teams client faster – without having to prepare for or use the rest of what Microsoft Teams offers.

In a blog I wrote for AvePoint, I look at why this ‘lite’ client will probably never see the light of day.
