How many of your organization's Teams are still relevant?
Few people in your organization are proactively reaching out to IT to let them know a project has been completed and the associated Team can be decommissioned, so chances are excellent your collaboration environment is littered with zombie Teams.
This makes your organization less productive and secure as content is harder to find and manage.
Even for organizations with good processes in place for identifying inactive Teams, the next challenge is effectively managing the end-of-life process.
A Team has data and a number of shared artifacts (Exchange mailboxes, OneNote Mailboxes, Planner boards, etc.) that need to be either deleted, archived, declared as a record or moved according to company policy and relevant industry or country data regulations. For many organizations, this process can both burden IT and pose a security/compliance risk.
Our experts will show you how to clean up your Microsoft Teams at scale using both native Microsoft 365 functionality and third-party solutions.
