New ISV Benefits With Teams and Viva
Additionally at Inspire, Microsoft announced new benefits for ISV partners that build and market business-to-business apps for the company’s Teams collaboration app and Viva employee experience platform.
Qualified ISVs will gain access to Microsoft technology, training, consultations and marketing resources to reach more Teams users, Microsoft said.
In April, Parker told CRN that Teams presents a compelling business opportunity for ISVs.
“Teams can be integrated in applications for workflow, other than the voice, video, chat that we know and love,” Parker said. “You see this much more as a platform that ISVs can integrate with.”
That same month, Jeff Teper, corporate vice president of Microsoft 365 collaboration, told CRN that Viva presents a “huge set of partner opportunities, thinking through what content and training and applications should be targeted to what employees.” Viva was unveiled in February.
