- Viva, as a suite, will continue to expand with new modules. 4 modules are available now, these 2 new modules have now been announced. Additional modules will come in the future.
- Viva builds on many existing investments around the Microsoft 365 cloud and organizations that have implemented those tools can more quickly leverage Viva in their own environment.
