Matthew Bailey

Matthew J. Bailey, MVP MCT - Microsoft Teams for Administrators

Microsoft Teams is the most disruptive tool that Microsoft has recently released in Office 365. While end-users utilize the tool daily as part of their job, admins may need help to manage it all. As an administrator, you love seeing your users interacting with Office 365 daily, but at the same time, it won't be ideal to end up with countless Teams, SharePoint sites and Office 365 Groups in your tenant without any governance or compliance in place or plan to manage them.

In this session, you will learn how you can properly deploy and manage Microsoft Teams in your organization.

It’s the new kid on the block that will make you rethink how you collaborate and communicate with your team.

Liz Sundet, MVP, PMP, MBA - Better Together: Agile/Scrum and using Microsoft Teams

SharePoint has traditionally lended itself to a fair amount of success in management of documents created during a project and managing tasks and timelines. However, it didn't quite match the efforts of the agile/scrum team. With the new Team platform in O365, there are new advantages for these types of teams and makes for great collaboration when not co-located. Learn the key benefits of this new platform, from setting up channels for sprints, accessing and sharing documents and enhance your collaboration experiences.
