Why This Matters

  • Viva is one of the most important suites for the next generation of cloud services. Viva Learning gaining major Learning Management System (LMS) integration helps bring more employee experiences into Teams.
  • Windows 365 Enterprise is gaining more capabilities for enterprise organizations that are shifting towards cloud-only environments. While this capability was in the non-Enterprise version, adding Azure AD Join to the Enterprise version indicates the ongoing cloud shift while also simplifying provisioning for complex organizations looking to test the solution.
