PoC Move into Viva Engage

CloudWay AS

Let's help you prepare a business case for Viva Engage implementation project

Microsoft Viva Engage is an employee experience that connects people across the company. It provides an experience where people can crowdsource answers and ideas, share their work and experience, and find belonging at work.

Some organizations are using “only” Microsoft Teams (Teams) for their internal communication purposes, other organizations might use a combination of Teams and other solutions for internal communication, sharing information, publish news and more.

Deciding to move or move parts of the internal communications into Viva Engage communities is a great idea. However, careful planning and looking at the full communication lifecycle, is important before taking the shift. The communities or forums, are part of an internal communications ecosystem. Changes to a part of the ecosystem affects the rest of the ecosystem. This Proof of Concept will help give the full picture of what is needed to do, plan and reorganize the internal communication ecosystem.
