Deploying Microsoft Teams? Do it Right the First Time.

Microsoft Teams has generated a lot excitement since it was launched two years ago. Planet offers responsible governance in the era of data sprawl.


Microsoft Teams has generated considerable excitement since it was launched just over two years ago. In fact, it has become the most rapidly adopted product in Microsoft’s history. 
The desirefor rapid adoption, particularly from top-level executives, has put pressure on IT Administrators to make Teams immediately available to end-users. This “ready, fire, aim” approach often results in Teams environments that are lacking in governance, difficult to navigate, and confusing to end-users. Dozens of Teams like: “Bill’s Test Team”, “Sara’s Test Team”, “Softball Team”, and “Holiday Party” crop off and offer little to no business value. If your organization is preparing to roll out Teams, Planet Technologies has several engagements that offer valuable guidance to ensure your implementation of Teams successful:        

  1. Teams Readiness Assessment: A multi-session Q&A-based assessment that is focused on identifying areas of focus when rolling out Teams. The analysis covers everything from: security and compliance best practices, to governance considerations, to structuring Teams to maximize user adoption and much more. Your organization will come away with a deployment roadmap and governance strategy. The engagement includes documentation and comprehensive knowledge transfer for your Teams Admins.
  2. O365 Governance Engagement: Teams is not a stand-alone product; it is reliant on O365 Groups which traverses SharePoint, Exchange, OneDrive, and beyond to deliver its social media inspired collaboration experience. Planet offers a comprehensive Office 365 Governance Engagement that covers productivity, collaboration, and security in Office 365. The outcome of this engagement is a robust, custom governance plan to help your organization adopt the latest Office 365 applications and features.
  3. Teams Trainings: Equip your organization to maximize their productivity and the return on investment with training. Planet offers the following Trainings:
    1. Help Desk / Administrator Training
    2. End-User Training
    3. Train the Trainer sessions.
The Trainings can be offered live (in person or remote), as reusable recorded sessions, or a combination of both.
