Since it is quite probable that employees will use the new Teams product to conduct business there are a few Security, Compliance and Goverenance holes that probably need to be filled.

I couldn't agree more. 

Dispite the what was communicated on the Office 365 Blog, NJ event and Office 365 message center, the option to enable it is not available for my Office 365 tenant yet.

I have enabled teams across my domain. What next? How the hell do you use it?

I have an Office 365 team account, so I was curious.

It will eventually show up in your app launcher as well.

Where is the data created held for teams in the Azure data center with the tenant or in the USA etc?

I'd imagine it's located in exactly the same location where your SharePoint Online, Exchange Online, SFB and ODFB data is located as those are the services used.

Same issue as Kevin and Daniel.  Getting an error when adding people to a team about user doesn't have permission.

Teams seems great except Planner integration. Is there a way to tag / mention a Planner task in the conversation? 

This is really important as there is no way to discuss about the Planner task.

I was looking for something similar. The report / dashboards in planner are great but their is no option for that on the teams page. Am I just doing something wrong?

It doesn´t integrate with Planner Hub either in a nice way.

The plan you create in Planner doesn´t show up in Teams and vice versa.

Simple question: Does (or will) Teams make the IM part of SfB redundant? Why have two 'chat' or real-time messaging apps? I can see that SfB will still be needed for video/voice calls, online meetings and screen sharing, but the IM bit? Not so much.
