communication and collaboration technology architecture

Teams is an impressiv communication and collaboration platform enabling your workforce to cope with different kind of workloads within a single pane of glass. P2P chat, team chat, presence, audio calling, video calling, app sharing, meetings, (third-party) app integration, (soon) PSTN telephony, bot integration … just to name a few features.
