Why not zoom? You get basic slack features

I don't find either to be user-friendly so I don't see it going far before they fix that

No, don't fight it. Embrace Teams & the Office365 Ecosystem

Teams makes me want to get out of the Office365 ecosystem.

At this point anything less than an all-in-one solution isn’t going to grab my attention. Teams and O365 is one location for messaging, collaborative doc management, phone/video, group work and discussion. I used to not be a fan of Microsoft at all - Teams has won me over. And seeing the escalated improvements just since the pandemic - tested with no downtime? Yes please. Good luck to others!

Without a doubt - Technical Debt! It's a ball and chain that creates an ever increasing drag on any organization, stifles innovation, and prevents transformation.

Yes - Maine did the right thing. There are too many security risks with free versions of these tools. Not enough copyright or privacy protections of data.30%

No, but.... - You must have good security and privacy policies in place for ChatGPT (and other GenAI apps). My organization has policies and meaningful ways to enforce those policies and procedures for staff.53%

No - Bans simply don't work. Even without policies, this action hurts innovation and sends the wrong message to staff and the world about our organization.12%

I'm not sure. This action by Maine makes me think. Let me get back to you in a few weeks (or months).3%
