Office 365, Skype / Comments Off on Goodbye Skype, And … Hello….Teams

Something unexpected today .. it seems Microsoft appears to be re branding its business communications platform … again. What was formerly called Lync and currently known as Skype for Business is set to be re-branded one more time.

As users were trying to login today to Office 365, some were being prompted with the image you see in this post. Considering that this is coming directly from Microsoft, it would seem that Skype for Business is going to be re-branded under the Teams umbrella which is perhaps a smart move. Teams is a new feature and reminds me’a lot of the  old “Team” Site. More collaboration is always a good thing if your using O365 for ECM.




This will be an interesting next step for Skype. Stay tune!
