There is a big push to get organizations to adopt Office 365 and many are encountering challenges with moving their existing processes “to the cloud.” I recently spoke with Vlad Catrinescu [Blog – Twitter], Microsoft MVP and author, about these challenges and his experience in overcoming them.

Microsoft’s Office 365 has built-in features that provide physical, logical, and data security for organizations large and small.

It was a great week in San Francisco! The #ITDEVConnections conference is a high-quality event that focuses on real-world technical sessions and the conference delivered. Both of my sessions had good participation from attendees – I enjoyed answering questions and getting to know everyone.
In my second session we looked at the business intelligence options in SharePoint, as well as Power BI. One of the great BI additions in SharePoint Online capabilities is column formatting that is currently rolling out. I demonstrated how you can easily use JSON code to style and enhance list views and how that can make a huge difference for your users.

When Adding a Power BI report to a modern SharePoint page, are filters and options taken into account when show on the page? Yes they are!
Is the Power BI report show on a modern SharePoint page a snapshot of the visuals or live data? If live, how is the data refreshed? The visuals shown are ‘live’ and will be refreshed when the report is changed or data is refreshed (scheduled within the Power BI service).
I am lucky enough to live in an area that was in the “path of totality” for the solar eclipse that took place August 21st, 2017. Being the largest city in the 100% coverage path, Nashville was expected to receive visitors from all over the world for the event and I had a front-row seat from my home!
The hour leading up to the event was plagued by clouds.
The Microsoft Ignite conference this year is being held in Orlando, Florida USA from September 25th – 29th. There will be tons of learning opportunities (1000+ hours) on topics ranging from IoT to Office 365 and SharePoint. The week is a great time of networking, learning, and finding new opportunities to get plugged into the community.
I will be part of the REgarding 365 team doing various activities, including broadcasting live interactions with attendees, speakers, and experts from around the world.
