Teams, the new hub for collaboration in the modern workplace, also works with AskCody
This year, Microsoft launched Microsoft Teams. A platform that's truly redefining teamwork and collaboration in the modern workplace, integrating all business critical tools into one shared platform, that all employees can access and use, with the same ease of use as Facebook Messenger, Slack or other conversational interfaces.
But, Teams is not just yet another Chat App. It's "Collaboration 2.0", and with the new announcement for this year's Ignite, Teams is going to have a significant impact on teamwork in the modern workplace going forward.
As Microsoft put it: "Microsoft Teams is now the hub for teamwork in Office 365. Going forward, Microsoft Teams becomes the core communication and collaboration client for Office 365".
