From Skype for Business to Microsoft Teams

On the Right Track

After the Upgrade

Once you have completed part of the migration to Teams, it makes sense to take some time to evaluate whether you have achieved the goals defined in the planning phase. It may be necessary subsequently to draw up a plan to fulfil all the targets that have not yet been met. You will want to pay particular attention to the network team. It is essential to ensure that the planned requirements for the network match the actual effect after the upgrade.


Teams is a new product with various collaboration and communication functions, giving companies a wide range of options. You can ignore Teams. After all, just because it is a new tool on the market does not mean you have to use it. On the other hand, you can roll out Teams to provide new collaboration features and still keep Skype for Business for communication, which might require an upgrade to Skype for Business Server 2019.

A third option is for companies to set up teams for collaboration and arrange for some user groups to communicate in Teams, while leaving other user groups in Skype for Business. Alternatively, Teams can be made available for collaboration to facilitate the transition to Teams' meeting functionality while Skype for Business remains the primary voice call platform. The way forward that still remains is to complete the transition to collaboration and communication with Teams in multiple steps.
