Best Practices for Deploying MS Teams with Video

Author: Irwin Lazar, VP & Service Director

A growing number of organizations are implementing Microsoft Teams to improve group communications and collaboration. As Microsoft customers shift from Skype for Business to Teams, they must implement a strategy that supports integrating existing and planned video endpoints into their Teams implementations. This report provides a look at Microsoft Teams implementation trends, and shares best practices for successfully integrating Teams with video to ensure collaboration success.

Teams adopters must integrate their legacy videoconferencing environment to ensure that existing meeting spaces are able to support Teams-based meetings as easily as any other endpoint. To do so, IT leaders should:

  • Evaluate platforms that offer the ability to easily integrate existing room-based videoconferencing systems into Microsoft Teams supporting features like one-touch join, and the ability to schedule meeting rooms via Microsoft Teams
  • Consider cloud-based services to speed deployment, and to take advantage of operational expense billing models that provide flexibility and scale
  • Ensure visibility into end-to-end videoconferencing performance of all endpoints, including legacy, software, and Microsoft Teams-based room systems
  • Leverage analytics platforms that provide insight into room system utilization and ROI.
