Microsoft has been promoting Viva for nearly 2 years now as ‘an employee experience platform that brings together communications, knowledge, learning, resources, and insights in the flow of work.’ Maybe it’s just me, but this description doesn’t really explain what Microsoft Viva is, and what to expect from it.

GoDaddy is quite a recognizable brand dealing with web services. The company titles itself the world’s #1 domain registrar but there is a lot more to GoDaddy than domain registration, e.g.: website hosting & design, online stores, SSL certificates and (the focus of this article) email hosting.
