What is Microsoft Teams
Microsoft Teams is a reliable, secure, and cloud-based communication and collaboration workspace that brings together people, conversations, files, and tools one umbrella. It seamlessly integrates with the other Microsoft 365 applications, including Exchange, SharePoint, and OneDrive.
Microsoft Teams makes one-on-one communication and group calls easy. It allows users to enjoy seamless real-time collaboration, host audio conferences, schedule team meetings, link and thread posting in groups, sharing and collaborating over documents, and more.
What is Webex
Webex is a cloud-based communication, collaboration, and productivity tool created by Cisco. It allows users to host and participate in online meetings, screen sharing, and video conferencing. Webex is the final product achieved after merging the wen conferencing platform and Spark team collaboration tool from Cisco.
Irrelevant to where you are and what device you use, Webex makes it easy to join meetings. Cisco achieved the increased productivity of Webex by merging Webex Meeting, and Webex Teams.
Microsoft Teams Leads the Race
Even after the COVID-19 apocalypse is at the finish line and people started returning to the office, Microsoft Teams has not stopped making strides. Although Zoom and Webex have successfully made headway in adoption, compared to Microsoft Teams, their numbers are significantly lower.
Not only remote workers but students and educational institutions are increasingly interested in using Microsoft Teams for distance learning. According to data released by an enterprise software company Aternity, within four months from February 14 to July 17, 2020 usage of Microsoft Teams grew by 894% from its base usage. It indicates Microsoft Teams leads the race.
