Buzzkill E6 – Information Management & Architecture with Erin Glenn and Matt Barns

This week Hunter and Jay enter the world of Information Management and Information Architecture. Information Management and Information Architecture are key components to the usability of an information system – IM helps you know the processes for managing tacit knowledge, documenting it as elicit knowledge, and finally recording it as authoritative, or records. IA is all about how your people FIND that information, how it’s organized. To aid in the conversation, Jay and Hunter are very thankful to have solution architects Erin Glenn and Matt Barns to join us and tell their stories.

This Week in Teams #OTSTWIT E12 – July 17, 2020

Who are these people, and what happened to Craig? This week we invited Sven and Matt to talk about their newly released eBook, Rockstar Meetings with Microsoft Teams. Unfortunately, Craig’s internet service provider decided it was a good time for an outage, so he couldn’t join us. Hopefully, Jay sufficiently kept the conversation going without… Continue Reading →

This Week in Teams #OTSTWIT E11 – July 10, 2020

This week Craig and Jay dig into the recent meeting enhancement updates. We’ve been talking about 7×7 video mode since Microsoft announced 3×3, and we’ve started to see the new 49-person mode in the wild. And then, seemingly out of nowhere, they released “together” mode. Other things we discussed included Cortana in the mobile app, a little more information on the Tasks app (joining Outlook Tasks, Planner, and more), and some updates on the Power Platform.

Buzzkill E5 – Governance with Amanda Musselwhite

This week we invite Federal consultant Amanda Musselwhite. of Booz Allen Hamilton, to talk Governance. Last Week, Hunter and Jay introduced a number of key Governance theories and suggestions on how to get started with your governance plan, but sometimes it helps to hear it from someone else. Amanda, a Governance consultant for over 15… Continue Reading →

This Week in Teams E9 – June 20, 2020

This Week (in Teams, I couldn’t resist) we talk about Teams Live and how to get the most out of producing video content for broadcast. Teams Live, in contrast to Teams Meetings, gives producers a one-way broadcast capability for education events, town halls, and other events where sending out audio, video, and screen sharing is of value, but it makes more sense to have few content creators and many listeners. Up to 20,000 per meeting in fact. Check out these post-event details to see how they did this MASSIVE event.

To start, our examples focus on the Microsoft community itself. Well known for our Microsoft/Azure/Office365/SharePoint User Groups and (SPS) Saturday events, like much of the world, the community has found itself canceling events and moving online. The big sample is a 36-hour event with nearly 400 presentations and over 20,000 attendees — the Microsoft 365 Virtual Marathon was an impressive feat and a spotlight of our Teams Live use case.

Lest we not forget to announce the third panel in our video, we are joined by the Cloud Talk Show (cloudtalkshow.com) co-host, Software Architect, and self-proclaimed Microsoft Aficionado, Ralph Rivas.

This Week in Teams E8 – June 15, 2020

This Week in Teams was … fairly quiet … unless you’re a Teams Free user. Teams Free is designed to compete with the Zooms and Go to Meeting free accounts but brings a mixture of collaboration and limitless free meetings. New features including scheduling, live captions, and custom backgrounds flooded the news this week (and watch out for that “Add new” button in your custom background selection pane!). Also, Microsoft’s Teams Meeting Capture app and offline availability for pinned chats and channels hit the market this week. Actually, it’s pretty busy for an “off” week.

This Week in Teams – June 5, 2020

After Microsoft Build, last week, there wasn’t much news for Microsoft Teams, but we found enough to have a short conversation: 7UP (49 people in a 7×7 video grid) is official, but no release date was mentioned; Free Teams now get Meetings; Slack and AWS are going to partner to compete with Microsoft’s enterprise voice… Continue Reading →
