The following is an excerpt from an article of Jay’s from the AvePoint Blog. Click here for the full article.

This article pairs with “SOL2 – Office 3655 and Microsoft Teams Adoption for the Real World (Government Edition)” that Jay Leask was scheduled to give at SharePoint Fest DC, April 13-17 2020. With the delay of the conference due to the COVID 19 pandemic, we’ve decided to turn these presentations into articles. When the new date is announced, Jay looks forward to sharing this information live at the conference with updates wherever possible.

Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) is the largest science and technology lab sponsored by the Department of Energy. ORNL’s mission is to conduct basic and applied research to deliver transformative solutions to compelling problems in energy and security that span a broad range of scientific and engineering disciplines. However, while the staff focused on mission objectives, the organization had their own problem to take care of: transforming their team collaboration.

ORNL previously integrated Skype into their environment when it was still Lync, and for years ORNL used workaround solutions and found their staff utilizing shadow IT to get their work done. But when they realized that they could get all the benefits of being in Skype with Microsoft Teams—as well as additional features such as file collaboration—they took the plunge into Office 365.

Click through to read how ORNL used Microsoft Teams to modernize their communications, collaboration, and meetings infrastructure, enabling end users to be successful in the face of the unexpected difficulties of COVID19.
