Better Together: How Mesh Complements Microsoft VIVA

Exploring Microsoft VIVA

  • VIVA Topics enables employees to harness the organization’s knowledge by leveraging AI to reason over the content and organize information into categories like products, projects, processes, and customers. It creates “topic cards” by compiling all the information about a particular subject from siloed company apps while employees work within Teams, SharePoint intranet, and Office.
  • VIVA Insights combines data from Microsoft Workplace Analytics and MyAnalytics to deliver actionable insights and recommendations that help employees and managers build conducive work habits and ensure better work-life balance.
  • VIVA Learning makes learning a part of an employee’s everyday work by bringing together all learning resources such as Microsoft Learn, LinkedIn Learning, SAP Success Factors, and the company’s own LMS, under a single platform, i.e., Teams.
  • VIVA Connections brings conversations, news feeds, tools, and content people need and makes all of it available inside Teams.
