Workplace Analytics is a cloud-based solution that uses the power of Microsoft 365 collaboration data to provide rich, actionable awareness into how your organization spends its time, the ways people network, and the effectiveness of team collaboration.

With Workplace Analytics features, you can:

  • Explore research-based behavioral insights into how things get done using the solution areas on the Home page.
