  • Business needs/problem

    As more organizations standardize on Microsoft Teams as their primary method of communication and collaboration, challenges have begun to surface around:
    1. Setting up a new project, knowing what to use when, do I set up a Teams team, SharePoint site, Yammer Community – the list goes on.
    2. Creating a team is either too tightly controlled, creating bottlenecks in productivity, OR far too enabled, which creates duplication and sprawl
    3. Customizing a workspace is too time consuming and challenging for a user – what permissions need to be set, what apps are enabled, etc.
    Orchestry is a balanced platform, which simplifies the process of creating a collaboration workspace in Microsoft Teams, empowering users to ‘self-serve’ (driving usage and adoption of Microsoft 365) and enabling admins to provide valuable insights into how their user base is leveraging Microsoft 365 to transform the way their organization works.
