Microsoft Workplace Analytics rebranded as Microsoft Viva Insights

Effective October 1, 2021, Microsoft Viva Insights replaces Microsoft Workplace Analytics (WPA).

Microsoft Viva Insights is part of Microsoft’s newly launched Employee Experience Platform (EXP) branded as Microsoft Viva, designed to help people connect, focus, learn, and thrive at work. Viva Insights is available via Volume License (VL) and Cloud Solution Provider (CSP).

Accessed in Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Viva Insights gives personalized and actionable insights that help everyone in an organization thrive. These insights are derived from data that is already available to you in your Exchange Online mailbox. For example, if you want to determine what commitments you made to others, you could manually review each email in your mailbox. The Insights app takes care of that instead.
