Viva, Teams or SharePoint

23 January 2023 by Alison Newman

DWG’s research report ‘Viva, Teams or SharePoint: Understanding how they fit together’ (updated for 2023) covers what digital workplace teams need to consider in deploying Teams, SharePoint and Viva, and working out how they integrate together.

It unpacks the factors teams need to consider to deliver a fit-for-purpose digital workplace that both meets organizational objectives and supports a strong employee experience.

The report does not provide a simple answer on how to set up or improve your 365-powered digital workplace, or offer recommended guidance on the best interplay and integration between the different channels. Instead, it provides a framework for teams to think about when planning their 365 digital workplace as well as setting out the factors that should be considered when making these decisions.

The report focuses in detail on the attributes of Microsoft Viva, in particular Viva Connections. It also covers how three organizations – Avanade, BCD Travel and Play’n GO – are organizing their 365-powered digital workplaces.

About DWG research

The Digital Workplace Group (DWG) carries out research into best practice in intranet and portal deployment. Covering the hottest topics in the intranet world, the studies we undertake are rooted in practical examples from among DWG member organizations as well as leading non-member companies. The results of this in-depth research act as a basis for decision-making, a source of ideas, and the basis for rich interactions between participants at DWG meetings. Generally, members are given exclusive access to our findings, although we do from time to time make a report available to non-members.
