It's safe to assume if you're reading this you're very aware of "the cloud." Unless you've been under a rock for the last five or six years, you know Microsoft has gone all in on their cloud services. You've heard a thousand reasons why you should move your organization’s IT services to the cloud. But that doesn't mean every organization should. Here are some reasons not to move to the cloud.
Moving your organization’s Exchange, Skype for Business and SharePoint services to Office 365 solves a lot of problems, but it can also create complications.

In this blog post, I’m going to break down what I know about Teams so far by addressing common questions and what the future holds for Teams and other collaboration tools in and out of Office 365.
What is “Microsoft Teams”?
Teams is a team-based collaboration tool that is part of Office 365. Teams puts pre-existing Office 365 services into one package that enables corporate teams to work together in a new way.
