Presentation: Microsoft Teams lifecycle Management to stop Teams sprawl

Microsoft Teams empowers users to collaborate. However without governance it is easy for organizations to create thousands of Teams sites with no clear ownership and no lifecycle. This uncontrolled growth can quickly turn into sprawl resulting in an IT admin headache to manage and lead to user confusion and dissatisfaction as they struggle to identify which is the correct team to use.
This session will discuss best practices on how to implement Teams lifecycle management to manage your teams through the following stages:
1. Teams creation
2. Ongoing management
3. End of life
