There is some good news. With a 2021 end of life deadline, there’s still plenty of time for you to train your workers and modify your applications. In addition, there are ways in which you can begin gradually introducing Teams, feature-by-feature, without immediately desisting from its predecessor.
Now that Microsoft Teams is at parity with Skype for Business Online, Microsoft has begun the process of converting the Office 365 Skype for Business Online service and will continue the process throughout 2019. This process will disable all features of Skype and will display an announcement that your company has transitioned to Teams when users attempt to launch the Skype application and redirect them to the new Teams client application.
The move to the cloud has necessitated a thorough reexamination of how customers and vendors plan, deliver and operate Skype for Business. Microsoft and KiZAN have developed unique offerings that provide guidance and assist with successfully delivering Skype for Business online, on-premise or taking a hybrid approach.
KiZAN’s offerings complement the guidelines provided by Microsoft’s Skype Operations Framework (SOF).
How's that for a setup?
