Introducing Microsoft Viva
Keeping up with Microsoft news and product releases lately has been quite the feat. They just announced Microsoft Viva, the first EXP built for the digital era. EXP stands for employee experience platforms, which is a new category of technology solutions. This is just another step Microsoft has taken to unleash new tools for employees to use so they can succeed and thrive no matter their location.
Microsoft Viva brings together communications, knowledge, learning, resources, and insights into an integrated experience that empowers people and teams to be their best, from anywhere. Powered by the full breadth and depth of Microsoft 365, it is experienced through Microsoft Teams and other Microsoft 365 apps that people use every day.
The first release of Microsoft Viva has four modules including:
- Viva Connections: Accessed in Microsoft Teams, Viva Connections provides a single-entry point for employee engagement and internal communications. Consider it a gateway to your digital workplace.
- Viva Insights: Viva Insights gives individuals, managers, and leaders personalized and actionable privacy-protected insights that help everyone in an organization thrive. It is accessed in Microsoft Teams. This will help employees stay connected with their colleagues and protect time for regular breaks, focused work, and learning. Personal insights are visible only to the employee, while insights for managers and leaders are aggregated and de-identified by default to protect individual privacy.
- Viva Learning: With Viva Learning, employees can easily discover and share everything from training courses to microlearning content. Managers get the tools they need to assign learning and to track the completion of courses to help foster a learning culture. Viva Learning creates a central hub for learning in Teams, with AI that recommends the right content at the right time.
- Viva Topics: Think of Viva Topics as a Wikipedia with AI superpowers for your organization. It uses AI to automatically organize company-wide content and expertise into relevant categories like “projects,” “products,” “processes,” and “customers.”
Viva Topics is generally available already. Microsoft Viva is easy to integrate with the systems and tools you probably already have in place. 2W Tech is a Microsoft Gold Partner and has IT Consultants on staff that specialize in Microsoft solutions.
