January 15th, 2018

A solo-cast from me this episode as Marc is busy doing his day job. A bit lonely for the first episode of 2018 but I'll manage somehow. A quick epsiode to bring you up to date with what's happening in the Microsoft Cloud as well as to introduce Microsoft 365 and what that is all about.

Episode 164 - Focus on Me services

September 14th, 2017

Marc and I are back with the latest news and updates in the world of Office 365 and Azure. We are getting ready for the information overload we'll suffer as Microsoft Ignite rolls around at the end of this month. Stay tuned right here for all the updates and maybe some special stuff! 

In this episode I do a solo session around my belief that successful Office 365 adoption comes from focusing on the 'me' services - Yammer, OneDrive for Business, OneNote and Delve. I dive deep into my reasons and the actions you need to take away for success.
