Get more done faster with Microsoft Teams

Around the world teamwork is on the rise. Research suggests employees now work on nearly double the number of teams than they did just five years ago. This means more than ever people are reliant on their peers to help get things done. But a “one size fits all” approach does not work when it comes to group collaboration—different tools appeal to different groups and address unique needs.

This is not your typical online event

Each 90-minute session starts with an online business roundtable discussing your biggest business challenges with a trained facilitator and then transitions into a live environment in the cloud. You will receive a link to connect your own device to a remote desktop loaded with our latest and greatest technology so you can experience first-hand how Microsoft tools can solve your biggest challenges.

Advice to help prevent data breaches at your company

A data breach can be your worst nightmare. Not only could it be disastrous for your company’s brand, it could lead to significant revenue losses and regulatory fines.

Watch the latest Modern Workplace episode, “Cyber Intelligence: Help Prevent a Breach,” to get advice on how to best approach cyber security at your company from two chief information security officers (CISO)—Vanessa Pegueros, CISO at DocuSign, and Mike Convertino, CISO at F5 Networks. Learn how these seasoned security executives make decisions on security spending and how they justify security investments to skeptical executives who may not have ever experienced a security breach.

Every company has cyber security risks and needs to be aware of them—but understanding your company’s risk profile is just the beginning. You also need to know what you are trying to protect. As Convertino explains, “The value proposition of the company needs to be the thing that you base your protections and recommendations...

Basic Bash Inputs

Recently someone asked me about accepting bash inputs. So I decided to take a stab at writing a little about it up. For the initial one we’ll look at accepting text input. Here, we’ll just sandwich a read statement between two echo commands. In the first echo we’ll ask for a name of a variable. Then we’ll read it in with the read command. And in the second echo we’ll write it out. Using the variable involves using the string of the variable (myvariable in this case) with a dollar sign in front of it, as in $myvariable below:

echo "Please choose a number: "
read myvariable
echo "You picked $myvariable"

Read also has a number of flags available to it:

  • -a assigns sequential indexes of the array variable
  • -d sets a delimiter to terminate the input
  • -e accepts the line.
  • -n returns after reading a specified number of characters
  • -p prompts without a trailing newline, before attempting to read any input
  • -r...

TD banks on the security of the cloud with Office 365

Today’s post was written by Ron Markezich, corporate vice president for Microsoft.

When customers in highly regulated industries choose the Microsoft Cloud, it’s because they feel confident that our security capabilities will meet their needs. Microsoft has made great strides in securing approvals from global financial regulatory bodies to help them meet their compliance requirements. That’s one reason why TD Bank Group (TD)—a prominent North American financial institution with more than 90,000 employees worldwide—took a leadership role in the financial services industry with their move to Microsoft Office 365.

TD thoroughly tested the built-in security capabilities of Office 365. It also researched and confirmed that the Microsoft Cloud complies with Canadian financial regulatory requirements. And to maintain explicit control over access to their data during Microsoft service operations, they acquired Customer Lockbox for Office 365.

Missing a key security signal could mean not catching a breach, but the number of security signals is increasing exponentially. It’s becoming impossible to manually prioritize them. That’s why Office 365 applies intelligence to help you proactively manage risk and ward off threats. Today, we’re pleased to introduce several new capabilities in Office 365 that help you manage risk and stay ahead of threats:

  • Office 365 Secure Score—A new security analytics tool that applies a score to Office 365 customers’ current Office 365 security configuration.

Dealing with Disappointment at Work

My latest article for Inc Magazine is now available, called “8 Ways to Deal with Disappointment in Business”

It starts off a bit like this:

Disappointment is inevitable in business. Everything can’t go your way all the time.

Maybe you didn’t close that one sale you wanted. Maybe your budget didn’t get the increase you wanted. Maybe you got passed over for that promotion.

So how you deal with disappointment is as important a business skill as understanding finance or being a good leader. It keeps you steady when times get tough, it strengthens you to stay in the game for great opportunities in the future.

APNs Logs on macOS

I originally wrote this back in 2015 as an article for troubleshooting APNs traffic on a Profile Manager server. But it turns out that troubleshooting push notification communications between macOS Server and Apple’s Push Notification is basically the same as troubleshooting the apsd client on macOS. Basically, we’re gonna’ put the APNs daemon, apsd, into debug mode. To enable APNS debug logging, run these commands:

defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.apsd APSLogLevel -int 7
defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.apsd APSWriteLogs -bool TRUE
killall apsd

Then use tail -f to watch the apsd.log file at /Library/Logs/apsd.log. Be wary, as this can fill up your system. So to disable, use these commands:

defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.apsd APSWriteLogs -bool FALSE

The OneNote API team is pleased to announce that we have enabled application-level permissions support for the OneNote API. Until now, OneNote API calls could only be made with user-delegated permissions. This meant that your application would be restricted to scenarios that required a user to be signed in. With application-level permissions support, your application now supports scenarios that do not require a user to be signed in! Read the MSDN article for details of the OneNote API application-level permissions support.

With the availability of OneNote API application-level permissions support, many new scenarios that weren’t possible earlier are now enabled. Some example scenarios include:

Today’s post was written by Fabio Catassi, chief technology officer at the Mediterranean Shipping Company.

The Mediterranean Shipping Company has been under the same family leadership since its inception 43 years ago, and while the company now manages its fleet of 480 vessels from offices in 150 countries, it’s fair to say that its caring, corporate culture is as strong today as it ever was. But while we all feel connected to a large corporate family, unfortunately, our IT systems did not support that connectivity, or the global communications that we needed to compete in today’s digital economy.

Container shipping has evolved over the years to become a commodity-based business. Today, we are facing an era of shrinking profit margins and a growing pressure on the revenue side. Yet we were able to ensure that IT played its part in minimizing operational expenses, while improving our business services to employees. That’s because Office 365 delivers a cost-...

Decrease Time Delays When Scripting Safari

When you’re regression testing, you frequently just don’t want any delays for scripts unless you intentionally sleep your scripts. By default Safari has an internal delay that I’d totally forgotten about. So if your GUI scripts (yes, I know, yuck) are taking too long to run, check this out and see if it helps:

defaults write com.apple.Safari WebKitInitialTimedLayoutDelay 0

With a script I was recently working on, this made the thing take about an hour less. Might help for your stuffs, might not.

If not, to undo:

Have you ever found yourself saying, Who has the latest version of that market analysis?

Allow Connections From Other Hosts With IIS Express

IIS Express is a simple web server that can run on Windows with a couple of easy features for developers of Windows applications. This includes things like, webhooks, a modern way of accepting POST requests and responding to them. Each IIS Express site is managed on a user basis, as it’s written as a tool to assist with development.

Many web applications will attempt to communicate with one another via a specific port. And when you’re using IIS Express, you’ll need to create a socket binding to that port and allow external users to connect (again, by default, IIS Express is configured for developers to test code on their own machines). To do so, open the IIS Express config file at %userprofile%\documents\iisexpress\config\applicationhost.config (note that the userprofile is here as it’s again, per user). By default, bindings will restrict to localhost as you can see below:

Improving quality and performance are common business goals, but at Sanofi Pasteur, these goals have exceptional implications. As the vaccines division of a multinational pharmaceuticals company, we are responsible for creating rare, specialized products that prevent disease and save lives. When we improve any aspect of our business, we are also improving the lives of the people who receive our products. It’s an enormous responsibility, and one that is getting a surprising boost from the Microsoft social networking tool Yammer.

Too often, corporate social networks are seen as not having real business value. At Sanofi Pasteur, we know that these networks can have tangible benefits that support our corporate mission.

App Translocation Services In OS X 10.12

The “What’s New in macOS” page for Sierra (10.12) lays out a little known change that a colleague at Jamf was working on the other day (hat tip to Brock):

Starting in macOS 10.12, you can no longer provide external code or data alongside your code-signed app in a zip archive or unsigned disk image. An app distributed outside the Mac App Store runs from a randomized path when it is launched and so cannot access such external resources. To provide secure execution, code sign your disk image itself using the codesign tool, or distribute your app through the Mac App Store. For more information, see the updated revision to macOS Code Signing In Depth.

This is further explained in the equally misnamed “OS X Code...

OneDrive brings new file collaboration and...

In today’s digital workplace, the amount of content produced is growing exponentially, and working relationships change by the day. To maintain productivity in this environment, it’s essential that people can easily access and collaborate on team files in and outside their organizations from anywhere, on any device.

Today, we are excited to announce availability of several new capabilities in OneDrive for Business that make it easier than ever to sync, share and collaborate on all your files in Office 365.

Here’s a look at what’s new:

Sync all your files anywhere, anytime across PC and Mac

Organizations have been using the latest OneDrive client to reliably sync their OneDrive files to their PCs and Macs since its debut over a year ago. However, much of the team content they are collaborating on exists in SharePoint Online team sites and OneDrive folders shared by others.

Today, we are enhancing OneDrive with the ability to sync SharePoint Online...

The latest Huffington Post article starts out a little like this:

A great idea, hard work, good counsel, research, and inspiration from others are great ways to find success in business. But sometimes, try as we might, we just seem… blocked… Energy flows through a business, much as it flows through a body. And things like momentum need that energy to ignite into tornadoes of business.

Announcing School Data Sync general availability

Today’s post was written by Tim Richardson, lead program manager for School Data Sync.

We are excited to announce that School Data Sync (SDS), our online classroom automation solution, is moving from preview to general availability! Please fill out this request form to sign up, and we’ll help you to deploy it—for free.

SDS helps schools automatically create online classrooms in Office 365 from their Student Information System (SIS or MIS). SDS supports virtually every SIS on the market, and hundreds of customers in over 20 countries have already used it to sync over 100,000 teachers and 2 million students.

SDS imports user profiles and rosters from a SIS into Office 365 and automatically keeps them up to date. Schools often find it can be costly and time-consuming to maintain the online classrooms because rosters naturally change...
