This morning at the Enterprise Connect 2018 in Orlando, Microsoft Teams won the show’s top prize, Best of Enterprise Connect, based on the reimagined vision for Teams as the hub for teamwork in Office 365. Competing in a crowded field of nominations from 40 companies, finalists were judged on factors including technology advancement, scope and reach, relevancy for large and midmarket enterprises, pricing, and business impact—all areas in which Teams distinguishes itself.
The judging panel was comprised of recognized industry experts, including:
- Robin Gareiss, president and founder, Nemertes Research
- Zeus Kerravala, founder and principal analyst, ZK Research
- Marty Parker, principal consultant, UniComm Consulting; and co-founder, UCStrategies
- Dave Stein, principal, Stein Technology Group
