Microsoft Teams continues its meteoric ascent, with Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella recently revealing that the highly in-demand unified communications (UC) platform now has an incredible 145 million daily active users.
Although this statistic sounds (and is!) nothing short of extraordinary, representing almost a two-fold increase in user numbers over the course of the last year, it will come as no surprise to anyone who is familiar with Teams’ awesome productivity-boosting powers.
After all, it’s by no means an exaggeration to say that its instant messaging, online meetings, calling and web conferencing abilities are completely transforming the world of work as we know it.
Putting the Pieces Together
But with enterprises of all sizes – in every vertical – rapidly accelerating their adoption of Teams to shift employee productivity into high gear, IT managers are gradually realizing that paying separately for each element of the corporate communications puzzle doesn’t really make much business sense.
Instead, they can clearly see the considerable advantages of accessing all the individual components that they need to get connected to Teams from one centralized, cloud-based location, such as Microsoft Azure.
On Your Marks, Get Set, GO!
This burst of activity to ensure the best possible UC experience for today’s enterprises has fired the starting gun on the race to cloud telephony underpinned by Teams – and AudioCodes has emerged right at the front of the pack with AudioCodes Live for Microsoft Teams.

Our experts drive your entire Teams migration project from start to finish, including planning the deployment, installing the hardware and overseeing every part of the solution on a day-to-day basis, with 24/7 support provided.
