    Teams and Meetings

    At the heart of great teams is great communication. Teams that communicate often and openly are more efficient, respond faster, plan better and help one another more effectively. They listen to customers and market trends. They share insights amongst themselves. They challenge one another openly. They are great communicators and that makes them a great team. That is the core belief that guides our communication investments in Office 365.

    Our promise is that with new capabilities in this area, customers can significantly simplify their infrastructure with one platform in Office 365 for meetings and voice.

    If there’s one takeaway from this presentation, it’s this: It’s not voice. It’s not cloud voice. It’s one platform for meetings and voice.

    We’ve listened to our customers and the capabilities we are introducing today are helping address key business problems and initiatives that we’ve heard from other organizations.
