Microsoft 365 PnP Weekly - Episode 127 - 17th of May 2021

May 18, 2021

In this installment of the weekly discussion revolving around the latest news and topics on Microsoft 365, hosts – Vesa Juvonen (Microsoft) | @vesajuvonen, Waldek Mastykarz (Microsoft) | @waldekm are joined by Belgium-based, MVP, author, Microsoft Teams developer, and CTO with Advantive, Rick Van Rousselt | @RickVanRousselt.  

Topics discussed in this session can be summarized with one word.   Change!  The leap from Teams tab (iFrame) to Extension (Bot Framework) development, or transition from Skype to Teams, in the customer’s mind.   Many customers are now circling back to Microsoft partners for guidance on optimizing Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Teams, yet interestingly at differing rates Worldwide.  Clearly in part, adoption is cultural.   As well, the partner business has changed from having a development to a consultative focus, from selling and executing long term to short term projects, and the staff from specialists to generalists.    The pace of change is fast, challenging and rewarding.   Case in point on the pace of change - Microsoft and the Community delivered a box busting 29 articles in this last week!
