Is your IT Strategy Negatively Affecting Your Corporate Culture?

Posted by David S. Mulvey on 5/19/21 2:07 PM

Believe it or not, your employees and customers do care about the technology decisions that you make for your business. The old saying “if it’s not broken, don’t fix it” is not how you want to think about technology today.

Business agility is a sign of a mature and well-run business. Digital transformation is no longer a choice; it’s a necessity to remain competitive in today’s modern workplace.

Your ability to leave behind the old school approach to IT and embrace cloud-based technologies to run your operations is critical to your success and will make a lasting impact on your business.

Stay Productive at Home with Microsoft Teams

Posted by David S. Mulvey on 6/3/20 6:40 PM

If you’re new to Teams, or looking for work from home productivity tools, here’s a quick rundown of how it works and how to navigate your way through the platform.

Teams

In the Teams application, you can create as many Teams as you’d like under this tab. I’ve heard the analogy that you can think of each Team as a house. Many companies create teams for various departments or for specific projects. For example, you can create a marketing team, HR team, executive team, finance team and so forth. You can assign specific members to each Team and provide access rights to each member. If you’re not on Team you won’t see it in your Teams list. You can even invite external members to join your Team with proper permissions.
