How Microsoft Teams is Altering Collaboration Strategies

Having worked with different collaboration technologies since the late 1990’s, I’ve been able to work with many of the leading solutions available on the market — from traditional intranets and social collaboration tools, into the more complex (and expensive) product life-cycle management (PLM), product data management (PDM), and supply chain collaboration platforms. What attracted me to the SharePoint space back in 2004 was its potential for extensibility, which led me to working for Microsoft and then some of the leading ISVs within the SharePoint community. Throughout all of this, one of the major issues has remained end user adoption of the technology. Even the most advanced, feature-rich solution that seem to check off all of your corporate requirements can still have adoption issues.
