Automation and governance is a winning combination to scale collaboration in MS Teams. With the advent of this new paradigm, we can start tackling more complex tasks and transform the entire MS Teams experience – whether it is application design or usage. This fusion enables organizations to simplify and accelerate the administrative processes radically and achieve real breakthroughs in a short time. But which parts of the governance process should be automated?
Governance components to automate in MS Teams
Microsoft Teams is deeply integrated with other Microsoft 365 apps and effectively enables collaboration among a large number of teams, sites, and groups. As a result, governance in MS Teams demands constant monitoring of the ecosystem, enhancement of the architecture capabilities as per business needs, and management of the infrastructure in tandem. Consequently, establishing business workflows and processes is increasingly complex, repetitive, and time-consuming.
Hence, to reduce the excessive burden on IT and get the best results out of MS Teams, you must primarily focus on automating the five crucial components of governance which we have consolidated all in our single product called TeamsHUB by Cyclotron. Let’s go through them one by one –
1. Automate site provisioning

“TeamsHUB by Cyclotron provides the easiest way to automate team creation using a dynamic form that collects team’s metadata to be approved by the administrator.

This enables teams to work in a structured workspace without limiting their freedom.”
2. Automate insights and monitoring
