New age of business communications: Slack, Yammer and Microsoft Teams

Microsoft Teams 

Team communications for Microsoft Dynamics (and other enterprise systems) used to be synonymous with group email. Or maybe, if your team leader was particularly tech savvy, an IM session on something like AIM or Skype.

Those simpler days, however, are gone. Team communication today is often best done using more expansive workspace messaging channels. Slack and Yammer, for instance, allow for open and closed groups, private sub-communities (Slack "channels" and Yammer "groups"), video and audio streams, and API integration with third-party products.
