Microsoft Teams is a shared workspace that brings many of the collaboration and communication solutions within Microsoft 365 into a focused workspace. It integrates with other solutions from Microsoft, third party vendors, and in-house development to facilitate faster and smarter working — both within and outside of the organization. This is all delivered in a secure manner, which improves compliance, manageability, and system performance.
INCREASING ADOPTION AND USAGE OF TEAMS HELPS COMPANIES IMPROVE ACCESS TO INFORMATION AND FREE UP WORKERS – BOTH INFORMATION AND FIRSTLINE – TO FOCUS ON HIGHER-VALUE ACTIVITIES, THUS REDUCING OPERATING COSTS, ACCELERATING TIME-TO-MARKET, AND FOSTERING GREATER INNOVATION.
The following infographic was adopted from the Forrester Total Economic Impact™ Study Commissioned By Microsoft April 2019 . The purpose of the study is to provide readers with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of Teams, as part of Microsoft 365, on their organization.
Forrester interviewed four existing Microsoft Teams customers, a survey of 260 other companies, integrated data points from more than 50 interviews from other TEI studies. The subsequent financial analysis found that these organizations experienced Present Value (PV) benefits of $30.3 million over three years versus Present Value costs of $3.2 million, adding up to a net present value (NPV) of $27.1 million and an ROI of 832%.
The following risk-adjusted present value (PV) quantified benefits are spread across four broad categories — communicate through chat, meeting, and calls; collaborate with deeply integrated Office 365 apps; customize and extend with third-party apps, processes, and, devices; and work with confidence with enterprise-level security, compliance, and manageability.
