Microsoft Viva Overview

- The video is about Microsoft Viva and maximizing its return on investment.

- Viva is a collection of apps designed for employee experience, including Viva Connections, Viva Learning, Viva Topics, and Viva Insights.

- I emphasize the need to focus on practical benefits rather than getting lost in marketing jargon.

- Viva Connections integrates SharePoint content into Microsoft Teams but should be used carefully to avoid excessive card displays.

- Viva Learning, despite integrating with learning management systems, might not have a clear use case compared to existing LMS solutions.

- Viva Topics provides topic summaries and content recommendations, but its value might improve with integration of AI tools.

- Viva Insights analyzes employee behavior and offers insights to improve productivity and well-being.

- Among the apps, Viva Insights is highlighted as the most likely to produce a tangible return on investment by leveraging data-driven decisions.

- I also briefly touches on Microsoft Copilot, suggesting it might offer a significant return on investment due to its capabilities in improving efficiency and productivity.

- Licensing considerations are mentioned, with the speaker suggesting that smaller businesses might not necessarily need Viva.

"Viva" is a Microsoft marketeer's dream but that doesn't mean you have to get lost in the Bermuda triangle of marketing speak when trying to figure out how you are going to use these, seemingly disparate, apps to save time and increase employee engagement in your (or your client's) organisation.
