I like to keep an eye on Microsoft financial results for any insights into Office 365/Microsoft Teams.
In the April 2019 results, we learnt/confirmed the following:
- 91 of the Fortune 100 use Microsoft Teams
- More than 150 organizations have over 10,000 active Microsoft Teams users
- Office 365 commercial now has 180 million users
- EMS (Enterprise Mobility and Security) install base reached 100 million
And outside of Office 365/collab:
- Windows 10 is now active on more than 800 million devices
- LinkedIn has nearly 630 million members
- GitHub surpassed 36 million registered users
- Office 365 consumer subscribers grew to 34.2 million
We’ve learnt previously that over 500,000 organizations are now using Teams.
What we don’t know is which functionality is being actively used. Microsoft Teams offers “collab” (chat, channels, files, tabs, apps), Meetings and Phone System. The type of activity is not broken down. Also adding phone numbers to conferencing and Phone System are add-ons to E3 (the most common licence) or included in E5. The assumption would be the build of the usage is collaboration, but with 180 million Office 365 users, Microsoft have a quite an audience to target moving forward.
