Episode 204 - The prodigal host returns

April 15th, 2019 · Comments

I'm back from MVP Summit and we have a huge amount of news to cover off in this episode. You'll hear about the latest in Office 365 ATP, Windows Virtual Desktop, the new Microsoft Edge Browser and so much more. So much in fact that we had to hold a lot of material off until our next episode. However, don't fear, you'll get the most important stuff right here, so tune in and let us know what you think.

Episode 202 - Kaizala

February 19th, 2019 · Comments

The Microsoft Ignite tour has been to town so Brenton and I share our thoughts on attending the event. We wrap up what we believed to be the best sessions and overall take aways from the premier Microsoft IT Professional conference in Australia for 2019. We also cover off a few of the important updates from the Microsoft Cloud to make sure that you don’t miss anything in the meantime. I also share my thoughts on using the Kaizala app during the conference with the CIAOPS Patron community which is great lead in for our interview this episode – Parveen Maloo who is the Senior Product Marketing Manager for Kaizala. Sit back and enjoy something about a product you probably never knew Microsoft had.

Well we made it! 200 episodes are now done and dusted. We thanks our special guests for attending this episode live, Mark O'Shea and Marc Kean.  Of we can't forget the co-host Brenton Johnson, who helped make this episode special. We'd also like to thank everyone who shared best wishes and congratulations. It is fantastic to know that people are out there and enjoying what we put together.

This of course is only the beginning of the march towards our next 200 episodes and we hope you'll all join us for the journey. We've come a long way in around 10 years of podcasting and so too has the Microsoft Cloud. What's it going to be like in another 10 years? Join us on the journey.
