Microsoft Teams

and ITSM practices

Teams as baseline

Microsoft Teams need no special introduction. Perhaps pushed by COVID, but Teams has become the first app that we open each morning. But Teams has also moved into our mobile devices. So, in turn, a platform that we can’t avoid.

Five million people and 4 million downloads

As of September 27, 2021, Teams have passed 3,92 million downloads in Denmark, where we are headquartered. Impressive figures compared to our tiny population with only five million people.

As a matter of fact, this is why we need Teams in the ITSM context. Our users live here. We need to publish our services inside Teams. We need to communicate and use technics like adaptive cards inside Teams and much more.

We have a bold plan with Teams. It fills up our roadmap, and we enjoy working with the platform.

How ITSM360 supports TEAMS

When we talk about TEAMS, we differentiate between functions and features used in the IT function and those that your end-users in the company use.

For you, it is essential to understand that Teams and SharePoint use the SPFx framework. In conclusion, we can move our technology/code directly to Teams. The tight relationship in Microsoft Office comes alive here.

Another option is to run self-service within a Team/Channel inside Microsoft Teams. It enables you to serve experienced Teams users with new features such as:

  • Use of native Teams features like conversations and files (where files are connected to your SharePoint knowledge library and conversations with a bot)
  • Enabling Microsoft Stream in tab for video sharing of content
  • 3’rd party apps that make ITSM value

Collaboration and Teamwork inside IT

ITSM360 supports your IT staff in many ways. However, an exciting aspect of working inside the Teams client could be a real-time collaboration with externals.

Externals could be suppliers, or perhaps only an organizational unit like HR inside your company.

How?

You just create a Team for the external part, grant them access to a channel inside the Team, and then configure the ITSM360 web part to show only matching cases to the external collaborator.

Simple but natural Teams.
