It shouldn’t surprise you that Microsoft is putting a lot of emphasis on Microsoft Teams.  Microsoft announced that 90% of the Fortune 100 are using Microsoft Teams.  What have they figured out?  I know there are thousands of companies still using Skype for Business and the pending migrations are at a critical time.  Many of you are wondering what’s in teams for you… I’m hoping this webinar helps you understand the vision of Microsoft Teams, the vision of Microsoft 365 and the Modern Workplace.

Working with Roger Taylor and Dionne Taylor from SkyeNets we put together this infographic to help simplify what’s happening in the interface and behind the scenes.  Microsoft Teams is your doorway to the Modern Workplace: An overview of Microsoft Teams dependencies.

Evolution of ECM with Microsoft Modern Content Services

Evolution of Content Services – Microsoft Modern Content Services Infographic is shared with creative commons share alike. You can share this infographic with your company, use it in your slides or in your blogs or post it on LinkedIn or in a Facebook group. Have fun.

Gartner declared ECM dead in early 2017 with the post “The Death of ECM and Birth of Content Services” and born out of its ashes is born Modern Content Services. Microsoft has fully embraced and embodied it. Personally I saw it first hand while at Konica Minolta. The entire space has been a push to the cloud and business processes realigned to cloud based content services. The file, scan and print business has turned dial tone and subscriptions and much of what was growing moved to the cloud with the legacy monolithic ECM systems. That’s not to say you can’t find legacy file cabinets and legacy datacenters. It’s definitely time to wake up and recognize the business has moved on and they’ve embraced usability and user experience…

Description: Join Microsoft MVP Joel Oleson and Microsoft Gold Partner, HELUX, as we explore the evolution of traditional ECM into Content Services. Microsoft has been leading the charge in SharePoint and Office 365 with a rich ecosystem of applications, and components and rich integration into other content services platforms. In this webinar we’ll explore how ECM has truly evolved from being an unrealized dream of consolidation which never fully arrived, to modern Content Services as a focus of coordination where users see value in the creation, the storage and coordination flow. Additional value is realized in the harvesting and extraction, designed with intelligent security in mind. ECM is evolving. Content Services is core to Office 365, OneDrive and SharePoint.

• ECM evolution to content services needs to embrace a holistic approach to managing the entire lifecycle of document creation, sharing, consumption, reuse, knowledge, and records management, archiving and disposal.

• By building a great information architecture, content moves through an organization gracefully and gains value as it accelerates information discovery. • Content Services is people-centric – allowing for personal management (copy/move, hashtags) and organizational management (knowledge management, retention and records management, information lifecycle management).

• Policy and security: intelligent, simple, and automated – protect content at all phases of its life

For the second year in a row, Microsoft has been recognized as the leader in Content Services Platforms by the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Microsoft’s exceptional execution of its products and services. SharePoint’s role in content services for Office 365 is self dubbed “people-centric,” focusing on the use of documents, videos, designs, scans, pages, and other useful applications. This offers industries such as the medical field to efficiently share medical scans within their intranet system and properly collaborate with other medical professionals through the ease of sharing their documents from one doctor to another instantaneously, saving time, money, and energy as one example. These innovations have changed the way companies interact with one another as well as how they operate as a single system. This earns Microsoft their well-deserved recognition as a leader in both Content Collaboration Platforms and Content Services Platforms, the only company to do so in the Gartner Magic Quadrant.

According to Microsoft’s recently published White Paper “Modernizing Enterprise Content Management with Microsoft Content Services,” Microsoft is revitalizing and modernizing their approach to their content services. Microsoft is making changes to their services by reflecting how modern content is created and shared by giving more freedom to personal management organizational management through their tools like “copy, move, tag with metadata [and] knowledge management, record retention, information lifecycle management” providing a more user friendly experience. This provides creators and collaborators even more tools to improve their businesses and a more accessible reach their targeted markets.

In addition, Microsoft is focusing on “Content Velocity” where modern user content is more often created, edited, shared, and edited again in a cycle of unending development with constant revitalization and collaboration. Microsoft considers this as “an evergreen cycle of authoring, collaboration, control, and reuse” allowing creators, editors, and presenters the luxury of direct communication and distribution of thought in true practice. To simplify this experience, Microsoft presents this new focus into 4 pillars.

The first pillar is dubbed ‘Harvest’ as they state content is not meant to be created then stored in some archive filling up vital storage space never to be seen again. Instead content is meant to be continually updated and added on to provide constant relevant use as information and inspiration for future content. This makes every document into a vital document to a business.

The second pillar is ‘Create’ where Microsoft products allow businesses and creators to use SharePoint and OneDrive tools like Office Lens and Office 365 to share their creations to their targeted audiences. These tools are supplemented by their unique and useful set of templates and policies that inform creators and aid them in their creative processes.

The third pillar is ‘Coordinate’ where Metadata is consolidated into organized systems that allow easy management and direction of content through tools such as Microsoft Flow and PowerApps, limiting the amount of clicks needed through their tagging and library search tools.

The fourth and final pillar is ‘Protect. Microsoft provides the ability to set up “information architecture, auditing, rights management, records and retention labels, and eDiscovery” to efficiently protect your business and its content so you can rest easy knowing your company’s content is securely faceted into your company’s files without the threat of 3rd party invaders.

Hope to see you on the webinar!

SharePoint Upgrade or Migrate?

Migrate to Office 365 or Upgrade to SharePoint 2019?

One of the biggest questions people have been asking with the release of SharePoint 2019 is what should I do now. There are still approximately 30-40% of SharePoint customers who are in either a partial cloud with hybrid scenario or are fully on premises running a variety of legacy SharePoint 2010, 2013, 2016 or earlier. Many customers have been toying with the idea of migrating to Office 365 and a significant portion who are on premises and plan to stay on premises have been asking… so tell me what the most compelling reasons are to upgrade or migrate? Can you give me a top 10 on each? Wouldn’t it be great if we had an infographic that had both in the same place so you could decide? Sure! Why not both and a webinar to discuss it!

This infographic is shared creative commons share alike. Feel free to include it in your presentations inside or outside your company or feel free to blog about it and share it in social media.

Why Migrate to Office 365 or Upgrade to SharePoint 2019 – There are a dozen great reasons to upgrade to SharePoint 2019 if you are running any older legacy versions of SharePoint. The number of reasons go up if you’re running SharePoint 2013 or 2010 or heaven forbid 2007 or 2003. As an example the browser compatibility gets a huge boost between 2010 and 2013 and even better with 2016, but 2019 is the most significant upgrade since 2010 to 2013. While SharePoint 2013 to 2016 wasn’t very significant the upgrade from SharePoint 2016 to SharePoint 2019 is much more significant due to a lot of investments in on premises OneDrive, hybrid integration with Flow, Forms, PowerBI, Power Apps. Those looking to reduce or remove their dependency on legacy InfoPath and SharePoint Designer will be much more happy with SharePoint 2019 due to this new integration. Those customers who are using some SharePoint Online and some on premises will find a significant upgrade to the UX in SharePoint 2019 with the modern UX updates.

4 Easy Steps to SharePoint Data Compliance

Compliance and Data protection has never been more important.  Microsoft has put a huge effort behind the “Data Loss Prevention” and “Labels” as well as site designs and levels to help users do the right thing.  Unfortunately, there has been a major disconnect between the business and IT (those tech teams providing the solutions) based on SharePoint Online and SharePoint 2019.  Business users often expect that IT has already setup the proper governance, compliance settings and all that’s necessary before the solution is released.  Very few company have setup the necessary, but new built in features of Site Classification, Data Loss prevention or the new SharePoint Labels.  Something I’ve repeated in the past that’s very applicable is defaults have faults.  SharePoint out of the box is not necessarily setup to ensure compliance in your industry without configuration.  These 4 prescriptive setups designed in a easy to consume Infographic provide the settings and configuration that’s required for compliance and due diligence for modern data protection.

Feel free to use or share this infographic it in your slides, in your blogs, with your business and review with Information security Legal or security teams.  This Infographic is designed to be shared.  It has a license of creative commons share alike.

As it relates to the importance of compliance in Office 365 SharePoint Online, many companies are missing the keys to success and may find a lot of value in seeing a sample built out based on prescriptive guidance.  SharePoint Online may seem plug and play, and releasing the service as is and letting users get on with their work and sites may seem like the right thing to do.  The reality is, with a little bit of configuration the environment can be setup in a much more purposeful way to protect data and the company from litigation due to lack of reasonable compliance actions taken to protect information privacy and records.  SharePoint Server in 2016 and 2019 have support for Data Loss Prevention.  The need for compliance and privacy applies to all types of environments.

There are really 4 key steps in setting up and configuring your SharePoint environment for base compliance.  I’ve worked with Colligo to put together this clever Infographic designed to simplify the process.  I hope you enjoy it.  Hope you like the Infographic, but even better I hope you join us for the upcoming free webinar where I’ll walk you through the 4 steps in more detail.
