Team Collaboration tools are taking over, but in many enterprises, users are still relying on older-generation tools like Microsoft Yammer, and don’t have a path yet determined for their migration to the Teams/Slack generation of applications. In this session, a leading industry analyst will provide an overview of the current collaboration market and tools, and discuss the steps you should be taking to migrate users from these older systems to the new generation. She’ll then carry on a conversation with experts who will offer their perspectives. You’ll come away with a clear idea of how to get from where your users are today to where they’re going, with as little disruption to processes and as many quick wins as possible.

KEY QUESTIONS:
* What does the world of legacy collaboration tools look like? How quickly was that market growing before the Teams/Slack generation emerged to challenge it, and what does it look like going forward?
* What are the biggest challenges for migrating away from tools like Yammer to newer platforms?
* What benefits is the migration likely to produce, and how can you capture these in the near-term, so as to keep users and business leaders on board with the migration?
* Is there an argument for keeping some users on legacy tools? What are the vendors telling customers about planning their migration?
