Episode 180 - Stephen Rose

May 3rd, 2018

We have been lucky enough to speak with Microsoft Senior Marketing Manager for OneDrive for Business Stephen Rose all about how OneDrive helps customers collaborate in this episode. I chat with Stephen about how to resist the urge to map drive letters to OneDrive and how it is superior to the competition amongst plenty of other things. Lots of really great information about OneDrive for Business and we thank Stephen for his time and information that he shared with us. Of course Brenton and I also wrap up the latest news and events in the Microsoft Cloud world and share with you our take on the current happenings. Don't for get to send us your feedback.

After some Microsoft Cloud news Brenton and I dive into an introduction to Microsoft 365 and why it is important for Microsoft, customers and partners. We look at what it comprises and what the major benefits are. We discuss how security and device management are the heart of the product and why that is so important in light of recent compliance legislation. This is only the start of what will no doubt be an ongoing examination of Microsoft 365 and its role in the market.

Episode 175 - Compliance

March 8th, 2018

Brenton and I talk about the importance of data compliance in light of recent legislation updates in both Australia and overseas. This means that it is very important to firstly understand what your obligations are when it comes to personal data but to also ensure you own systems are compliant. Technology is not the only solution required here, you'll need policy as well as training to help people better understand what their responsibility is. We cover off all the major highlights as well as give you some suggestions of how you should be approaching this with your Office 365 tenants.
