I just got back from Microsoft Ignite, where I stayed locked in a restaurant with customers for almost the entire time. Thankfully, I was able to escape long enough to sit down with Tony Redmond and Microsoft’s Christophe Fiessinger to talk about Office 365, Groups, Ignite, and a bunch of other stuff… in front of a live studio audience. That means that, when you hear people laughing, it’s not scripted for once. Enjoy!

Back by popular demand: Office 365 Exposed! In this episode, Tony and I recap the (excellent) Office 365 Engage conference, discuss some various change management “issues” (I use the term politely; “problems” would be more accurate) with Office 365, touch on the recent horrifying data breach in the reporting portal, and opine on what to expect at Microsoft Ignite coming up next month.
Listener note: Tony and I will be recording an episode at the Ignite Podcast Center– if you have questions or topics you’d like to see us address, let us know!
In this episode, Tony and I welcome special guest and Office 365 MVP Alan Byrne, who comes off the top rope on Microsoft and their Office 365 reporting APIs. We discuss something Citibank has that you don’t, wonder where some promised Office 365 features have gone, and tell bad jokes. Actually, I don’t think there are any jokes in this episode at all– probably worth listening to it just for that.
Fresh on the episode we did at Microsoft Ignite this year, Tony and I thought it would be fun to do another short episode while we’re both in Vegas for IT/DevConnections… so we did. Topics include a spiffy new profanity filter (for Office 365 Groups, not Tony and me), the triumphant debut of Focused Inbox on desktop Outlook, and a touching closing segment where Tony mourns the loss of a favored gadget.
I hear you now: “Wait! You and Tony record new episodes quarterly! In California! Why are you posting a new episode already?”
Because Microsoft Ignite, that’s why! We were able to steal away to the very nicely equipped Podcast Center at Ignite to talk about some of the big announcements, rumors, and news around Office 365. (Thanks to Julian for the audio production btw.) Hear about changes to Office 365 groups, a new name for a controversial features, and what Atlanta has given the world.
Another trip to California for Tony and me means another episode of Office 365 Exposed! This time, we talked about Microsoft Ignite, Office 365 Groups, why the Saints are my favorite football team, and a host of other topics. (OK, I admit it. We did not actually talk about the Saints. Maybe next episode. I did sneak in a plug for the College Football Hall of Fame though.)
I recently had the opportunity to sit down with Tony at ENow World Headquarters (OK, it’s just a regular office, but that sounds better) to talk about the state of the Office 365 world. In this episode, we talked about the latest bit of ill behavior from Microsoft Learning, the best paths to take to gain practical Office 365 knowledge, and what to expect from the upcoming Microsoft Ignite and IT/DevConnections shows. Enjoy!
