A recent survey found that employees could potentially save four to six hours each week if they didn’t have to search for information—or spend time recreating it. This equates to an increase of 11-14 percent in daily productivity.
Microsoft Viva Topics together with Atlas solves the challenge of finding information and inefficiencies in knowledge searching which strongly impacts enterprise productivity.
Microsoft Viva Topics is one of the modules of Microsoft Viva, an employee experience platform that brings together communications, knowledge, learning, resources, and insights. Viva Topics uses AI to organize resources, information and expertise into topics delivered through apps like SharePoint, Microsoft Search and Office; and coming soon to Yammer, Teams, and Outlook.
Extracted descriptions, topical documents, and related sites and people are presented on topic cards that help people learn, develop new skills, and innovate faster while they work.
