Citrix: The Big News About Microsoft Teams

Over the past six weeks, Microsoft has revealed their plans for Teams and Skype for Business. Let’s review the big news about Teams, and what it will mean for Citrix customers.

Unified Communications is evolving into what Microsoft calls “Intelligent Communications.” The goal is to make it possible for workers to communicate more efficiently, with less context switching, and to be more productive.

At the recent Ignite conference in Orlando, Microsoft announced that Teams will be the primary client for intelligent communications in Office 365 (see Lori Wright’s blog post). Skype for Business Online customers will see the functionality that they’ve enjoyed converge into the Teams client. Microsoft Teams will offer comprehensive calling and meetings capabilities, built on a next-generation Skype infrastructure for enterprise-grade voice and video communications.

Already, Teams has introduced features, like scheduled meetings, Outlook calendar integration, meetings on mobile, and guest access. In the coming months, Microsoft will roll out audio conferencing (currently in preview) and calling features, such as inbound and outbound calls to PSTN numbers, call transfer, call hold, and voicemail.

Simultaneous with the Teams announcements for Office 365 customers, Microsoft announced plans for Skype for Business Server 2019 for customers with an on-premises communications infrastructure. The new Skype for Business Server release, part of Office 2019, was reviewed in Daniel Strader’s session at Ignite. Along with it, there will be an updated desktop client for Windows 10. It will interoperate with both Skype for Business Server 2019 and Skype for Business Server 2015.
