Skype for Business Online will be retired on July 31, 2021.

Teams is both a people change and a technology change

Shadow IT is something that needs to be handled. No one will go out to get their own operating system or their own email system, but for communications they will. This will create a disparate communications environment in the organization.

Start with creating a strategic plan

Key points to remember


How do we replace the Lync Attendant client?
Use a third-party solution.

Is there integration between Skype for business on-premises and Teams?

What technical issues did Tesco face in the transition?
Some issues with understanding the modes at first, changing back and forth testing. Many users started doing video quicker than expected, QoS was implemented and bandwidth increased.
