Solving the enterprise knowledge problem

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, the employee experience platform

Microsoft Viva Topics is one of the modules of Microsoft Viva, an employee experience platform that brings together communications, knowledge, learning, resources, and insights.
