A couple customer stories about Exchange on premises and Teams chat data retention round out our inaugural episode.
In today’s On the SPOT News Brief, Jay Leask and Craig Jahnke talk Microsoft collaboration systems, specifically: SharePoint and OneDrive. To oversimplify their thoughts, inspired by the recently released Document Circle of Life in Office 365, the two ultimately agree that SharePoint is for co-authoring and publishing, while OneDrive is for individuals working on individual content — but there’s always more to it than any simplification can properly document.

In technology they discuss news out of the SharePoint conference, GitHub, a sunken data center, Project Maven, WWDC, GDPR and those pesky privacy policies. They also put out a call for someone to help them understand what Apple has been doing for the past 5+ years – I mean, really, what’s iNew?
During this episode, recorded November 2017, Jay sat down with Liam Cleary, MVP and Associate Director at Protiviti, to discuss cognitive services, the speed of technology (no pun intended), and the rise of the machines. We also discuss Liam’s path to the IT Consultant known for [REDACTED] (I kid, ask him about personal security at conferences, it’s fun), and the importance of giving back to the community that helped you get where you are.
today’s On the SPOT News Brief, Jay Leask and Craig Jahnke continue the Cloud Series with a focus on a four phase migration process: Discovery, Assessment, Pilot, and Execution.
