Is It Time for a Microsoft Teams Health Check?

The past two years pushed many companies to adopt new ways to collaborate. That’s why many organizations adopted Microsoft Teams quickly. Of course, a quick deployment is not always a smooth one. Lots of organizations face this problem—no one could blame you for rushing if you didn’t get a handle on your Microsoft Teams deployment. With a lack of governance policies, you could be dealing with data sprawl, security risks, and several other issues holding you back from a smooth Teams experience. 

No unified communication platform is perfect or instantly capable of adapting to your business or organization. Maybe the pandemic left you no choice but to deploy Microsoft Teams quickly, without a proof of concept and with no time to train anyone in your organization. But it’s never too late to conduct a health check. An experienced provider can share common user experiences. Here are some common scenarios and approaches to right the ship and enjoy all the amazing functionalities that Microsoft Teams has to offer. 

Don’t Be Afraid to Do a Microsoft Teams Health Check

If you already have Teams but need to optimize your deployment to get everything that Teams promises and more, there are specific professional services that can conduct an MS Teams health check to ensure your deployment is the best that it can be. Even if you think your Teams deployment is secure, there might be vulnerabilities that your network team needs to address. From remote work scenarios with Microsoft Teams to growing companies that had to rapidly accelerate their UC adoption, it’s okay to ask if everything is running as it should be. Whether you were already planning a deployment for Teams or had your hand forced by COVID-19, good governance is crucial to properly understand what’s going on with your Microsoft Teams environment.
