2017 Blog Post Roundup
2017 is drawing to an end and what a year it’s been! We hope you have had a year of growth and productivity.
Over the last few months, AMT have been writing a series of blog posts ranging from brief descriptions of Microsoft apps, to in depth explanations of how to use certain tools to improve your business, or an element of your business.
As it is the last Tuesday post of the year, what better way to celebrate than to give you a final roundup of our top 5 blog posts!
In 5th place is the Office graph. This blog post summarises what Office Graph is and how it can be used within business. ‘The Office Graph is a huge Microsoft data store that records all of the interactions being made in Office 365 – from people opening files to booking meetings and so on. All of this information can then be made available within your organisation to build a picture of how people work and who they work with.’
In 4th place we have ‘How do you collaborate in Office 365’. This post was a real hit on LinkedIn and sparked many conversations between IT professionals. It talks about the many different ways in which you can communicate and collaborate using Office 365 and how it can improve business. Topics covered in this post are; organising documents, working together on documents, running a project and cross-company communication.
In 3rd place is a 60 second briefing, summarising the difference between OneDrive and SharePoint. These apps can often be compared as they essentially do the same thing – store documents and files. However, there are very strong differences between the two, and this post summarises these differences very clearly and simply. Read this post and you’ll have it sussed.
‘8 reasons why an intranet fails’ is at 2nd place. This post reflects on the jobs AMT have done in the past and what the main pain points are for the majority of our clients. ‘We have delivered many SharePoint Intranets to organisations, large and small, covering a multitude of disciplines. A common scenario is that the Intranet we build is not the first for that company, and more often than not, more than two previous Intranets have failed. Here are the most common reasons.’
And in 1st place is the Microsoft Ignite 2017 updates! This year, the much anticipated Microsoft Ignite event brought many updates and exciting new features that will enable businesses to work better. Previously, Microsoft’s vision was to put a computer on every desk. Now, Microsoft’s main goal is to empower every person and organisation on the planet to achieve more through ehanced communication and collaboration – Because of this, Ignite’s announcements saw a commitment to Office 365 and the re-branding of cloud services. Here are the main updates from Microsoft Ignite 2017.
We hope these blog posts have been informative and have shown the ways in which Office 365 works to improve communication and collaboration within businesses.
