Microsoft Viva: Connections

Microsoft Viva which was introduces earlier this year is a system, which Microsoft describes as “the new ERP”. It consists of four modules that provide Teams users with access to on-the-job training, knowledge, analytics and corporate information.

Introducing Microsoft Viva

Microsoft research shows that the move to telecommuting has impacted employees’ sense of community and belonging in their organization. This is especially true for new hires. And 60% of employees have felt disconnected from the team since switching to remote mode.

Viva Connections is a personalized digital workplace built on SharePoint. Here, employees can access a wide range of information, including internal company news, policies and benefits, while interacting with diverse groups and communities through integration with Microsoft applications, including Yammer, SharePoint and Stream.

Each employee is provided with a personal news feed that internal groups can use to focus on important information. It is displayed on a dashboard that acts as the Viva home page.

With corporate branding and curated content, the Connections app can be customized to meet the needs of a target group of employees focusing on specific information and tools.

Microsoft Viva Connections functionality is scheduled to appear in the Teams desktop app in the first half of 2021, and in the mobile app this summer.
