Now more than ever, organizations need tools to foster a culture where people and teams are empowered to be their best from anywhere. As you work to address today’s challenges, Microsoft Viva and FastTrack can help.  Viva consists of four key scenarios:


  1. Harness knowledge and expertise: Viva Topics automatically organizes content and expertise across your organization, making it easy for people to find information and put knowledge to work.
  2. Amplify culture and communications: Viva Connections is your gateway to a modern engagement experience designed to keep everyone involved and informed.
  3. Accelerate skilling and growth: Microsoft Viva Learning empowers employees with formal and informal learning when and where it’s needed, making it easier for people to learn while working.
  4. Balance productivity and wellbeing: Microsoft Viva Insights helps people and business thrive with data-driven, privacy-protected insights and recommendations to improve productivity and wellbeing.


Scenario based deployment

FastTrack deployment assistance for Microsoft Viva is offered through the Employee Experience scenario. The scenario-based approach begins with the premise that the IT admin we assist is in the middle of a mindset shift in their organization. The blurring of the line between business and tech is reflected in our Employee Experience scenario approach. How so?


  • First, the guidance for IT Admins is organized by use cases that the Admin’s business partners would consider relevant.  The intention behind this packaging is to empower the IT Admin to move back and forth from a business, human resources, or communications discussion to a tech enablement project.
  • Second, the technical guidance is intended to simplify deployment by integrating workload guidance for Viva and its technical prerequisites rather than relying on the IT Admin to locate disparate guidance and do the synthesizing themselves.
  • Third, through our self-service automation (wizards) we offer a dashboard that allows the IT Admin to see where they are in the journey. Our hope is that this view helps the IT Admin manage internal stakeholder expectations and coordinate with their business partners.


FastTrack provides this guidance via a team of experts (engineers and architects), as well as self-service automation set-up guides that are available to customers in their admin portal.
