Should end users be able to create Office 365 Groups?

Last week while attending the MVP Summit at Microsoft HQ in Redmond, a group of us were given the opportunity to film a debate in the Microsoft Production Studios – where they create all their official broadcast-grade content.

The topic was around whether end users should be able to create Office 365 Groups, or whether this should be controlled by IT. The creation of Groups extends to and impacts a whole number of Office 365 apps and services, and can be a crucial component in the success of Office 365 in any organisation.

The whole debate is 30 minutes long, with some fantastic points raised by some very smart people for both sides of the argument. Check it out!

My AvePoint blog post about Office 365 Groups vs Microsoft Teams

There’s still a lot of confusion around Office 365 Groups and how they work with Microsoft Teams, so I’ve partnered with the team at AvePoint to write a post about how they work together.

The post covers confusion around product names, integrations, and scenarios where users would find challenges around creating both of them.

The AvePoint team also created a great infographic covering the 4 considerations before rolling out Microsoft Teams.
