Microsoft Teams as a collaboration platform


How ELCA can help you to quickly get started with remote work and collaboration at a distance.

Microsoft Teams is the hub for team collaboration and digital workplace in Microsoft 365 that integrates the people, content, and tools your team needs to be more engaged and effective. Integrated in Microsoft 365, Microsoft Teams combines chats, video meetings, file storage and application integration in 1 single point-of-entry.

Microsoft 365 is a very powerful Software as a Service (SaaS) solution. Microsoft Teams works as a unified collaboration tool for digital workplace that uses Microsoft 365 services to allow users to communicate and collaborate on common content.


Part of the Microsoft 365 suite, MS Teams is an easy-to-use web-based tool that empowers collaborative work but it’s also available as an application for Android, iOS, Windows and macOs (Linux version previewed for 2020).

As a digital workplace solution, the user can add:

  • Additional communication applications such as Zoom or Cisco Webex
  • Whiteboard applications such as Freehand
  • Planning tools like Microsoft Planner, Hive, MeisterTask or Lucidchart
  • Customer service solutions such as Dynamics CRM, Woobot and Zoho
  • For marketing teams, collaborative applications such as Mindmeister and Soapbox

Since it’s very easy and intuitive tool to use, there are some misconceptions that the tool can be made available to users and “things will sort itself out”. Proper governance is needed to avoid that MS Teams gets out of control.
