Lots of announcements and other news flowed at the Microsoft Ignite 2019 Conference. Here’s a YouTube playlist for four short videos about interesting topics from the conference. We cover Office 365, Exchange Online, OneDrive for Business, and the famous “Office 365 substrate.”
In a session recorded at Microsoft Ignite 2019, Tony Redmond discusses the question of will Microsoft Teams take over from email. The session covers the strengths and weaknesses of both technologies and makes recommendations for how organizations can take full advantage of Teams and email.
Like any technology, Microsoft Teams has some lesser-known parts. At the Ignite 2019 conference, we had the chance to talk about topics from backups to DLP to background blur. You can listen to the recording of the session online and download a copy of the deck here.
Tony and Paul taped episode 17 of the Office 365 Exposed podcast at the Microsoft Ignite 2019 conference with guests Mark Kashman and Ross Smith IV of Microsoft. Topics discussed included SharePoint’s success at reaching 100 million monthly active users, Project Cortex, and Intune.
Nine new REST-based PowerShell cmdlets are available for Exchange Online. They offer the prospect of better performance and reliability. Here are the code samples we used to test the new cmdlets for a theater session delivered at the Microsoft Ignite 2019 conference. Anyone wanting to explore the new cmdlets can use these examples to get going.
In May 2015 we launched the first edition of Office 365 for IT Pros at the new Microsoft Ignite conference. At that event, we had printed copies of the book. Since then we have learned our lesson and haven’t gone near hard copies, mostly because of the cost and complexity of coordinating content for a book that changes so often. If you’re considering writing a technical book about cloud services, our advice is to go along the ePublishing route.
Paul Robichaux and Tony Redmond recorded episode 17 of their Office 365 Exposed podcast on October 23. It covers recent Office 365 news and an interview with Anna Chu of Microsoft. Anna is deeply involved in the organization of the Microsoft Ignite conference and we chatted about how sessions are selected and other topics.
The Office 365 for IT Pros author team is busy packing for the Microsoft Ignite 2019 conference in November. We’ll deliver sessions, tape podcasts, and staff booths, and come back with a ton of new information that we will incorporate into the December update for the Office 365 for IT Pros eBook.
