During a virtual event on the 4th of February 2021, “Reimagining the Employee Experience”, Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella announced that Microsoft brings together collaboration, learning and wellbeing in order to create a new product category: Employee Experience Platform (“EXP”).
EXP is the platform for Microsoft Partners and customer organisations to deliver the future of work underpinned by the power of Microsoft 365.
Microsoft Viva, an EXP, brings key Microsoft 365 and partner capabilities together that an employee needs to be successful in a single integrated experience directly in the Teams platform. It includes the following set of modules (more on the way):
