Integration with Microsoft Teams


Microsoft Teams is a collaborative platform within the Microsoft 365 suite, designed to streamline workplace communication and collaboration. It provides a chat-based workspace for one-on-one or group conversations, organizes discussions into channels, and facilitates real-time file sharing and editing through integration with OneDrive and SharePoint. 

Teams offer a wide range of meeting capabilities, including video and audio conferencing, with features like screen sharing and recording. The platform supports a wide range of third-party apps and bots, enhancing its functionality, and prioritizes security and compliance with features like encryption and multi-factor authentication. 

OvalEdge Integration

Integrating OvalEdge with Microsoft Teams enhances the extensibility of client alerts by allowing OvalEdge users to directly transmit messages to their selected Teams Channels from within the OvalEdge platform. 

These messages can cover diverse topics, ranging from sharing detailed data catalog information (such as data definitions, data lineage, and data quality) to providing updates on workflows (involving data preparation and analysis). 

Additionally, users can share insights into data assets, including details about data sources, data quality, and usage statistics, as well as receive notifications related to Data Governance tasks, such as data privacy and compliance. 

Configuring the OvalEdge Integration with Microsoft Teams involves setting up specific parameters, both optional and mandatory, and configuring corresponding settings within the OvalEdge application.
