eBay makes a bid for flexibility in the workplace...

Today’s Office 365 post was written by Ron Markezich, corporate vice president at Microsoft.

eBay joined the Office 365 family of enterprise customers a few years ago, and I’m excited that the groundbreaking online retailer is now looking to take the next step toward advanced productivity by investing in Office 365 E5 for communication and analytics.

I recently heard from Rami Mazid, head of Global Infrastructure and End Users Services at eBay, about how Office 365 dovetails with the company’s internal goals. “At eBay, we were built on the belief that we can empower and connect people to create more opportunity, specifically through commerce. Within our own company, we’ve mirrored that same belief by leveraging technology and tools that enable our employees to easily connect and collaborate with one another. We’re using cloud-based technologies like Office 365 to give our employees the flexibility to work how they want, helping them forge bonds with...

Mapping New SQLite Databases

I’ve written about SQLite databases here and there over the years. A number of Apple tools and third party tools for the platform run on SQLite and it’s usually a pretty straight forward process to get into a database and inspect what’s there and how you might programmatically interact with tools that store data in SQLite. And I’ll frequently use a tool like Navicat to quickly and visually hop in and look at what happens when I edit data that then gets committed to the database.

But I don’t always have tools like that around. So when I want to inspect new databases, or at least those new to me, I need to use the sqlite3 command. First, I need to find the databases, which are .db files, usually stored somewhere that a user has rights to alter the file. For example,  /Library/Application Support/My Product. In that folder, you’ll usually find a db file, which for this process, we’ll...

The past year has come with significant updates to our SharePoint user experiences, such as modern team sites, document libraries and pages. These modern experiences feature simple and powerful web parts that are responsive, easy to use and mobile-ready. By customizing web parts on a page, team members can build tailored sites that feature the most relevant content and tools for their team. In addition to a rich set of web parts available within SharePoint, developers can also create completely new web parts. We’re modernizing our developer surface to keep pace with rapidly changing techniques and technologies used in the broader industry. SharePoint Framework lets developers take advantage of up-to-date practices, tools and libraries to help them build more engaging, mobile-ready web parts at a rapid pace.

Visualize work in powerful new ways

We’re constantly pursuing the latest innovations to help your team create powerful diagrams. That pursuit continues with several recently released updates for Microsoft Visio Pro for Office 365, including robust database reverse engineering capabilities and new third-party content that meets various industry standards. With these updates, you can visualize your work in exciting and meaningful ways, boosting efficiencies and helping your team make informed decisions with confidence.

Visualize database structures from source data

Visio’s database reverse engineering tool allows you to create a visual representation of a database from its source data. Visio can connect to a number of database solutions, including SQL Server, MySQL and Oracle, to create a real-time illustration of that database, which updates in Visio as the underlying information changes. This kind of reverse engineering helps you drill into specific database elements, like tables and views, to better...

Willis Towers Watson—increasing business agility...

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

When Willis Group and Towers Watson merged in January 2016, Willis Towers Watson (WTW) became a leading advisory, broking and solutions company operating in more than 140 countries. The merger created an opportunity for WTW to streamline its IT environment, consolidate vendors and commit to a business productivity platform that empowers every one of its 40,000 employees.

According to Eoghan Doyle, global head of Infrastructure and Operations at WTW, the overall utilization of Microsoft technologies is also driven by the business value of a common platform that enables digital transformation:

“Willis Towers Watson drives business performance for our clients by helping them unlock potential. We aim to do the same for our global workforce. The Microsoft Secure Productive Enterprise E5 solution provides the advanced enterprise security, collaboration and intelligence from...

Cookie Management With Curl

To tell curl that you can read and write cookies, first we’ll start the engine using an empty cookie jar, using the -b option, which always reads cookies into memory:

curl -b newcookiejar http://krypted.com

If your site can set cookies you can then read them with the -L option

curl -L -b newcookiejar http://krypted.com

The response should be similar to the following:

Reading cookies from file

Curl also supports reading cookies in from the Netscape cookie format, used by defining a cookies.txt file instead:

curl -L -b cookies.txt http://krypted.com

If the server updates the cookies in a response, curl would update that cookie in memory but unless you write something that looks for a new cookie, the next use will read the original cookie again.

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.

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.

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:

The OneNote API team is pleased to announce that we have enabled application-level permissions support for the OneNote API.

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-...

Outlook mobile turns 2 and now comes with your...

Two years ago, we launched Outlook mobile with the goal of helping you accomplish more while on the go. More means an inbox that helps you focus on the emails that matter most. More means a calendar that can manage your entire day, not just show you your schedule. And today, we are excited to continue that mission by bringing apps to your inbox with add-ins for Outlook on iOS.

We’re thrilled to collaborate with Evernote, GIPHY, Nimble, Trello and Smartsheet and bring their add-ins to Outlook on iOS. We’re also making a few of our own add-ins available today with Dynamics 365 and Microsoft Translator, with many more to follow.

With these add-ins, Outlook will help you accomplish awesome things you simply couldn’t do before from email. There has...

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:

defaults delete com.apple.Safari WebKitInitialTimedLayoutDelay

Enjoy.

Free your teams to innovate by improving...

When teams need to spend time looking for resources, wait for other people to get back to them or try to knit together information from different software or devices, projects end up running late. Team members rush to meet deadlines making it almost impossible to do their best creative work.

But isn’t working in a team supposed to make you more efficient—not less? That’s the idea, but you’ve probably noticed it doesn’t always work out that way. Have you ever found yourself saying, Who has the latest version of that market analysis? I know it’s been updated, so how come the only one I can find is months old?” or “It’s taking too long to get feedback on the budget from the team; we’re running out of time!” We heard you and created Microsoft Teams—the chat-based workspace in Office 365—so you can get all the creative benefits of teamwork and free your teams from these...
