One of the exciting announcements from last month’s Microsoft SharePoint conference is that Microsoft will soon be releasing Homesites. Homesites will be a fully customizable homepage where the existence of your SharePoint contents will reside. To fully understand the impact that this addition will have, we need to understand the current view of a SharePoint page. To begin, SharePoint is essentially your company’s internal communication site, which is referred to as an intranet. This is where you find all of your saved documents and files. Up until this point, your SharePoint site was fairly generic and not exactly pretty or easily navigable. It essentially is a simple page with a list of files. Understandably, we are beyond excited about this announcement. Now, anyone who currently uses the Microsoft SharePoint Intranet will be able to customize their Intranet “Homepage,” creating an aesthetically pleasing homepage with your company’s voice and branding.
Microsoft SharePoint has been around since 2001 so many may ask, “Why attend the 2019 SharePoint conference? What could be so different?” The answer is, a great deal has changed. We were thrilled with the announcements from this year's conference! It left us feeling jazzed as we left Las Vegas and we are positive the feeling was not from the bright city lights. It is evident that Microsoft has listened to our requests and has definitely delivered some impressive results.
Pendello Solutions has the goal in May of highlighting the lesser known apps within the Microsoft 365 stack. This week we have placed our focus on a very cool tool which will hopefully help you streamline processes within your organization. Microsoft Stream is a video service in which your office can securely upload and share videos with those within your organization. To fully grasp the benefits this application can offer, let’s take a look at what this app can do!
Microsoft is on the brain this month at Pendello Solutions as the Microsoft SharePoint conference is coming up later this month. As we dig deeper into our Microsoft 365 stack to prepare for the upcoming conference, we quickly realized that many are unaware of some of the lesser known applications within the comprehensive 365 stack. This month, at Pendello, we are moving our focus to a few of these lesser known applications within the 365 stack in hopes that it might help you utilize a few more applications that may bring a bit more efficiency to your workday. To start off the month right, we are going to look at Microsoft Forms.
When dealing with cloud computing, one of the top questions we receive at Pendello Solutions is, “Is the cloud safe?” What most people mean by this question is, “How is the cloud a better option than having my data and applications on-premise?” As with anything in today’s business world, security needs to be verified. There are definitely perceptions of the cloud and this week our focus is to take a look at these perceptions and decide truth or myth.
The cloud is always a hot topic and with good reason as it is continuously evolving. There are many questions about the cloud. Is it safe? Is it for me? Will it save me money? But, before we can explore these critical questions, we have to cover the basics being, what is it? We have all heard of the cloud, but very few truly understand what the cloud is or where it resides.
On the road again, I can’t wait to get on the road again….or can we? Many jobs require a great deal of pavement time. Whether that is to and from the office or for many, the car is your office and your time on the road is where you literally work. This is why we at Pendello were so excited for Ford’s announcement at CES 2019 that by 2022 they will be equipping all cars with C-V2 5G technology. This new and exciting technology will allow for car-to-car communications and will hopefully save lives, money and the hassle that is associated with accidents.
