I really like what I'm seeing with Kaizala. With it coming out of India and going mainstream, will it be incorporated into Teams? It's already a first class citizen O365 and Azure. How will it work with Staffhub?

Hi Ashraf,

Staff hub is being retired next year in October 2019

https://www.computerworld.com/article/3308680/collaboration/microsoft-aims-teams-at-more-frontline-w...

It will be integrated into Teams as Home and Shifts as introduced at Ignite.

With Kaizala, there is no official word as to whether this will be integrated into Teams or left as a stand-alone app. It will be discussed in detail at upcoming Microsoft Ignite The Tour

Best, Chris

Chris,

 

Thanks for the reply. 

 

I love Teams - it's actually my favorite app in all of O365 - and I was excited about the fact that StaffHub will be integrated into it when I saw the announcement during Ignite.

 

As I started looking into Kaizala, and seeing that it was:

  • built from the ground up to work on mobile devices,
  • work in 2G environments with intermittent connectivity,
  • is integrated into O365 and Azure AD / Azure,
  • can support teams with millions of users,
  • can connect stakeholders at all levels and in different companies,
  • has chat in an easy to use and familiar format,
  • and has actions like jobs, announcements, polls, checklists, and more,

it was also hard for me not to think that there will be some integration into Teams.  Teams is the fastest growing app in Microsoft's history and has a free version to capture an even larger slice of the market, so we know how important it is to Microsoft.  To roll out Kaizala and include it as part of the E licenses, and have an app that can compete with Teams, StaffHub, Planner, and even Yammer, it just doesn't fit.  

 

I'll be interested to see where Microsoft goes with it.  Hopefully, there will be more information during the Ignite Tour soon.

 

Thanks,

Ashraf

Absolutely, here is the link to the blog on Kaizala and Ignite the Tour

Hopefully I have answered your question Ashraf. If so, if you could set a like on the response and set it as a solution that would be fantastic. Also, keep asking more questions as I’d love to work with you more on Kaizala!

Best, Chris
