This time, Microsoft is trying to bring Cloud, enterprise social, Big Data, machine learning and mobile capabilities together through its Office 365 platform. Jeff Teper, the vice-president of Microsoft, displayed the latest innovations in a keynote speech regarding ten thousand customers and partners at its SharePoint conference.
Furthermore, Teper also sketched the platform that designed at the end users, IT professionals and the developer community. A new “personalised” experience integrating social capabilities is launched by the company for the end-users throughout Office 365. Such integrating social capabilities are helpful for those users, who are seeking for finding fast information or searching other working on same projects so that, they can have more time to get their other work done.
Users can achieve such things through Office Graph, which is a new Office 365 intelligence fabric that invisible for users, however, constantly examining content, interactions, and activity streams to intelligently interact with the most relevant users. It also has Oslo, which is an application that used for personal interactions and machine learning for providing examples of some the most relevant, timely information for each individual that uses Office 365 across Exchange, Lync, SharePoint, Yammer and Office.
Groups is another feature available that tries to unify people, calendars, conversations, emails and files across the Office 365 suite and enable a collaboration experience across applications. In addition, if you want to experience social conversations inside documents stored in SharePoint Online and OneDrive then you have Inline Social.
Other than this, Office 365 Video Portal also delivers a portal that supports the upload, storage and discovery of videos in the safest manner. With this, businesses can easily categorize videos into channels for specific business requirements and streams it on their smart devices with the video compression, optimization and rendering that done by Office 365.
Having over 3.4 million Office and SharePoint developers, Microsoft also announced investments that aimed at enabling customers and partners to create contextual output solutions across PCs, mobile devices and browsers. This includes Office 365 SDKs release for Windows 8 and Android that helps developers to create solutions that powered by Office 365, New APIs for files, people, email, calendar and tasks, enhancements to Office 365 APIs for PowerPoint and Outlook, and the ability to seamless activate app information.
Users can also find the tools that deliver the latest capabilities that improve Office 365 security and privacy help protect organizations. Data-loss prevention, OneDrive for Business, easy SharePoint social transition, etc. is also added to Yammer.
