Microsoft Planner hands-on demonstration

Earlier this month, we launched Microsoft Planner, which offers you a simple and visual way to organize teamwork. There are different ways we all get work done and until recently Microsoft has had solutions on two ends of the spectrum. Tools like Wunderlist or Outlook help manage your personal task lists, while Project or Project Online can be used to manage projects that require scheduling, prioritization, resource management, timesheets and integration with Line of Business systems. The middle ground is where Planner fits in, and it’s designed for structured team collaboration. For example, you can use Planner to manage events, office moves, user training or other team projects.

Today, we take a deeper look at Microsoft Planner—a new experience in Office 365 to organize work, manage and assign tasks and collaborate within your teams. Sajan Parihar and I go hands-on and... | Read more »

Business Lessons Learned From My Yoga Practice Art...

Had the idea for this one during a yoga class the other day. It starts out like this:
This may sound a little surprising, but yoga and business have a lot in common. Yoga teaches us about depth and focus. But as I’ve learned, yoga can also provide valuable lessons about how to successfully run a business. And not just in regards to emotional IQ. Here are some of the top lessons that I’ve brought to how I do business from my yoga practice.

Office 365 news roundup

Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn.” Benjamin Franklin, one of America’s most famous inventors, statesmen and self-made men, clearly understood that people learn best by doing. That’s one reason why at Microsoft we make Office 365 intuitive and easy to use. We know that the more you use Office 365 to actually do things, the more quickly you will learn and derive value from its many features and applications.
Several announcements over the past couple of weeks show how we consistently work to provide opportunities for you and your colleagues to get involved with Office 365 in ways that will benefit you and your business.

10 Things To Consider When Switching Between MDM S...

I’ve worked with a lot of organizations switching between Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions in my career. And I’ve seen the migration projects go both really, really well, and really, really poorly. In most cases, the migration is somewhat painful no matter what you do. But in this (my first) article on the JAMF blog, I try and organize my thoughts around a few things to look out for when migrating between MDMs/MAMs, and some context/experience around those.

Excel and big data

One of the great things about being on the Excel team is the opportunity to meet with a broad set of customers. In talking with Excel users, it’s obvious that significant confusion exists about what exactly is “big data.” Many customers are left on their own to make sense of a cacophony of acronyms, technologies, architectures, business models and vertical scenarios.
It is therefore unsurprising that some folks have come up with wildly different ways to define what “big data” means. We’ve heard from some folks who thought big data was working two thousand rows of data. And we’ve heard from vendors who claim to have been doing big data for decades and don’t see it as something new. The wide range of interpretations sometimes reminds us of the old parable of the blind men and an elephant, where a group of men touch an elephant to learn what it is. Each man feels a different part, but only one... | Read more »

Why secure email is essential for your business

Malware most commonly reaches your business through email. As attacks become more sophisticated, your business could be vulnerable. A malware attack means more than just a security risk. If attacked, your business runs the risk of lost intellectual property, productivity, business reputation, time and money. In fact, the average total organizational cost of a data breach in the U.S. is $6.5 million, and an average of 250,000 malware variants are detected every day.

What is malware? It’s any software created to cause damage, but there are different types and considerations when looking to protect your small business. What types of malware are threats to your small business?

Enterprise email—what a new business needs to know

A small investment in a business email account can be the difference between success and failure for your new business. Yet, for many businesses, finding the right enterprise email provider isn’t top of mind. Most people think email is just a given—it is free, after all, so why not just set up a simple email account, like “YourGreatNewBusiness@outlook.com?” While free email accounts are great for personal use, the lack of a proper business email solution could sneak up on you as your company starts to scale.
Be prepared for growth with an enterprise email account. Here are a few of the benefits from a business email account that you won’t get from a free email account:

3 ways Power BI can help your sales team succeed

With an ever-evolving market and a massive amount of data available, your sales team’s job of knowing their customer base isn’t easy. A multitude of information streams in every day. Sorting through data sets, spreadsheets and a dozen apps can slow them down—hindering the growth and success of your company. In fact, 90 percent of sales reps associate missed opportunities with the inability to leverage all available information.
Instead of solely focusing on dissecting the customer data in front of them, sales reps should be looking to data visualization to pull out insights not apparent at first glance. Microsoft Power BI in Office 365 can help by enabling your sales reps to collect, unify and visualize all their data in one place. It’s cloud-based and compatible with 59 different applications, which simplifies the process.

Minnesota school district starts the school year r...

Today’s post was written by Burke Egner, director of technology at Austin Public Schools.
Austin, Minnesota, is more than just a rest stop on Interstate 90 a couple hours south of Minneapolis. It is home to a major multinational company (the Hormel Foods Corporation) and its community is committed to progress and innovation. For the Austin Public School District, technology in education is a top priority. So when its teachers asked for more flexible tools, easier network access and better communication with their colleagues and students, the district decided on a move to Microsoft Office 365.
“We wanted to give teachers remote network access and create email accounts for students, but to do it on-premises would have required significant infrastructure upgrades,” says Burke Egner, director of technology at Austin Public Schools.
