In our recent IT Showcase webinar, Launching Microsoft Teams to the company: How we got ready, we talked about our overall strategy for delivering business impact by using collaboration and Teams’ capabilities, and addressed questions we considered as we planned for integrating Teams in our existing environment. The audience was great, and we received many questions throughout the presentation. During this webinar, we address some of the common themes we heard you ask about and provide resources where you can learn more about Microsoft Teams.
At Microsoft, continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) helps internal engineers release more than 1,000 builds per month through the Visual Studio Team Services platform. Software engineers who run the most critical line-of-business applications built on modern Azure technologies discuss our release management processes and principles. Learn how we organize our development teams and subscriptions—all while driving fast and maintaining control.
Microsoft security experts answer questions about how we protect information at Microsoft. We developed and implemented a data classification schema that consists of five labels to help protect data and documents. They describe how we use the labels, our efforts to educate people about classifying data and preventing data loss, and tools for automating information protection.
Rolling out Teams at Microsoft required that our IT pros work behind the scenes to make sure Teams would work well with existing telephony, messaging, and meeting room systems. Learn how we planned our deployment with both employees and existing services in mind, and follow along as our IT experts answer questions from the audience about adoption, Teams modes, interoperability with Skype for Business, meeting functionality, and more.
In modern networking, it’s important to securely bridge the gap between the cloud and on-premises network infrastructure. At Microsoft, we’re using Azure ExpressRoute and network segmentation to help control and secure our network traffic. With ExpressRoute, we can extend our datacenter into Azure with confidence and realize the benefits of public cloud networking.
At Microsoft, we’re transforming the way we manage our facilities with Dynamics 365. To manage 35 million square feet in more than 1,000 buildings worldwide, our real estate and facilities team wanted to consolidate the systems our numerous vendors use. With Dynamics 365, we’re consolidating all facility management processes and providing them to our vendors. Because our system is hosted in Azure, we gain scalability to meet high demand, flexibility to adjust to business needs, and visibility into all processes.
