Buckman finds the right communications chemistry by...

Buckman is a specialty chemical company based in Memphis, TN, which produces chemistries for water treatment and for the paper and leather industries. With people, factories and customers all over the world, Buckman communicates across geographies, teams and time zones all the time. It recently swapped a complex multi-vendor communications and collaboration toolset for Microsoft Office 365. The result has been smoother, more effective collaboration among the company’s 1,700 associates, higher reliability, lower costs and tighter control over email and data. We recently sat down with Tim Meek, vice president of Global Information Technology at Buckman, and Paul Grassel, director of Global IT Computer Services, to learn more about why Buckman switched to Office 365.

Behind the scenes on Goodyear’s drive to the cloud

Today’s post about Microsoft Office 365 was written by Jim McKinnon, vice president and chief information officer at The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company.

Jim McKinnon joined Goodyear as an IT intern for the company’s England subsidiary and spent the next four decades working his way up to vice president and CIO. McKinnon, who retires this month, isn’t ending his 40-year career on cruise control—instead he’s been in a pedal-to-the-metal drive to change IT at Goodyear.

I grew up a working-class boy.

My father was a tire builder at Goodyear. There was no work after the war in Dundee, Scotland, so he went south to England. He married a local girl, raised a family, and instilled strong values and principles in his children. I started as an intern at Goodyear in the IT department, as an analyst/programmer. It was a great job. It’s still a great job. I’m really proud that I’ve gone from IT intern to chief information officer of the...

Today’s post was written by Kirk Koenigsbauer, corporate vice president for the Office 365 Client Apps and Services team.

Since the Office for iPad announcement last March, we’ve worked hard to bring the power of Office to every person, across every platform and device, so people can get things done on their terms.

This substantial increase in distribution has naturally brought some changes in the way people use Office, including how and when they need a subscription to Office 365.

In the same way we’ve tuned Office software to be great on different devices, we’ve also carefully thought through the use cases and business implications involved. We’ve analyzed how our products are used in the real world...

OneNote Class Notebook for blizzard bag management

Today’s post on OneNote for Education was written by Jerry Bradford, director of technology at Washington County Career Center, Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert.

When adverse weather affects Ohio’s schools, often closing is the only option. The Ohio Department of Education permits five calamity days per year before schools are required to make up additional missed days. On top of the five calamity days, schools can also implement up to three blizzard bag days. Blizzard bags are online assignments delivered by individual schools. Teachers post blizzard bag assignments to a school portal and students must submit their assignments no later than 10 days after returning to school. Blizzard bags must contain content relevant to each class on a student’s schedule and meet the same academic expectations and rigor as a normal school day.

Exploring Manhattan with Excel Power Map

Today’s post was written by Daniel Witriol, senior program manager on the Excel Power Map team.

New York is an iconic city with a rich history of innovation. I have a lot of family in New York and grew up visiting the city. Now that I’m living in Seattle, thousands of miles away, I don’t get to visit very often. However, I thought it might be fun to see if I could explore New York from the comfort of my desk using Excel. Through a little Internet searching, I discovered New York City’s “PLUTO” dataset. Created by the Department of City Planning, the PLUTO dataset includes information on every building in the city—more than 500,000 in total. I downloaded the dataset as CSV files and using Power Query for Excel, imported the data directly into Excel. I focused on the data file containing...

This means the program is easier to join and production support is included for participants. Modern authentication brings Active Directory Authentication Library (ADAL)-based sign in to Office 2013 Windows clients. Previously, this was only available as a private preview for testing. Now modern authentication is available to any customer running the March 2015 or later update for Office 2013. It will continue to be off by default in the client, but can be enabled on Windows machines by participants in the public preview.

Office 365 news roundup

Microsoft makes some of the world’s most popular productivity tools, but we know from experience that true productivity is sometimes an elusive goal.

Would it surprise you to learn that the average knowledge worker today spends “an estimated 28 percent of the workweek managing email and nearly 20 percent looking for internal information or tracking down colleagues who can help with specific tasks?” Those are the facts, according to the McKinsey Global Institute. That means many highly skilled professionals are devoting almost half their working hours to routine tasks rather than focusing on creative, innovative work. That’s one reason why we spend so much of our time improving Office 365 and our other productivity tools to make them even more useful and efficient.

During the past couple of weeks, we have highlighted a number of new features, updates and improvements...

Welcome to the first monthly Dev Digest designed to help you—the Office 365 developer—keep up-to-date with what’s new in Office 365 development. Our team discussed doing this based on feedback from the Yammer Network community. We understand people want various ways to keep up with what’s new in our dev world beyond engaging on the Yammer O365 dev groups on a daily basis; following along on the weekly podcast hosted by myself or attending our major conferences twice a year for a wrap-up of where we are. The monthly Dev Digest was conceived from this understanding and feedback.

Sway guest blog: musician, web sensation and...

Today’s post was written by guest blogger musician, web-sensation and millennial futurist Daria Musk.

I’m a singer whose voice accidentally launched a thousand lines of code. A girl who grew up in the woods, singing for the trees but one day, opened her laptop and found a forest of friends and fans waiting to be known. My music has always sown the seeds of my dreams, but new technologies have been the thing that’s made them bloom. With video chats hacked into live interactive global concerts, I’ve toured the world without leaving my bedroom. Then I’ve gotten on planes to touch stages in those cities I’d only seen through computer screens.

As a millennial I’m a digital native, but I’m only an honorary tech geek. My amazing community of fans hold my hands and together we’ve bushwhacked a new path into the music industry, through social networks and...

Skype for Business is here—and this is only the...

Today’s post was written by Zig Serafin, corporate vice president for the Skype for Business team.

Enabling people to connect with one another is central to Microsoft’s mission to reinvent productivity and help people make the most of every moment. For us, connecting people means delivering experiences capable of conveying all forms of human expression—verbal, written, visual and emotional. In today’s modern workplace, productivity will increasingly be centered on conversations, whether in writing, in person, via phone or video conference call. People need communications tools that allow them to express themselves in the most natural and approachable way possible, and that work the way they do—fluidly across locations and devices.

Together with our customers and partners, Microsoft has transformed enterprise communications. Over 100 million people now use Microsoft Lync to communicate for work, with 79 percent of U.S. enterprises currently using or planning...

Laundry innovator wrings insights and productivity...

Today’s post about Office 365 was written by John Buccola, chief information officer at WASH Multifamily Laundry Systems.

I had been on the job barely a week when WASH made its biggest acquisition ever: Coinamatic, Canada’s largest multifamily laundry service. Overnight, our company grew by a third, and I had to do my part to get email and other services to our 300 new team members as quickly as possible—connecting them to the culture and the business.

It hasn’t slowed down since.

WASH Multifamily Laundry Systems installs washers and dryers in apartment complexes, military bases, college dorms and other multifamily settings. We’ve grown like crazy since the company was founded in 1947, doubling in the past five years. Today we have more than half a million installed machines in 75,000 locations throughout the United States and Canada. Five million people do their...
