Tom Talks Microsoft Teams and Microsoft 365 news and opinions

More than 150 organizations have over 10,000 active Microsoft Teams users and it is used by over 500,000 organisations

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.

We know there are some organisations with user bases, Microsoft themselves have 180,000 users on Microsoft Teams. Accenture have over 170,000 users.

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.
