This week, from May 6-8, Microsoft BUILD conference is happening near Microsoft´s home in Seattle, WA. With about 6000 people from around the world, BUILD is Microsoft´s largest yearly developer conference. This year, we learned tons of news, and the best part is, you get the content for free and you can find a complete guide of all news announced at Build here.
The next version of Delegate365 v8.3 is here. This major version brings some new features as "Sync with security group", bulk assignments and many further improvements and fixes. See the details here.
At Microsoft Ignite conference last September, we demoed an approach for a self-built Office 365 Groups Governance Toolkit. Since Microsoft 365 is an evergreen service and continues to evolve, today we have more group settings available and we extend our provisioning function to work with group naming policies as well. See here how this can be accomplished by including new Graph requests.
With Delegate365 v8.3 there comes a new feature in the Sync Rules: Sync with security group allows to automatically remove users from an OU. See how this works here.
Microsoft started to recommend its 64bit edition of Office 365 pro plus to be installed as the default Office installation. While at first many people think this is a bad idea due to all add-ins I did the switch last weekend and it was a very smooth and friction free experience.
Till April 2019 you had to manually uninstall the 32bit version of Office first and than install the 64bit version. If you are deploying Office 365 pro plus through the Office 365 Deployment toolkit you can now automate this experience and add a new switch to your config file.
The Delve App allows to discover company and user data across Office 365. Unfortunately, while the app is very helpful, it can not be customized. Well, but we can easily add additional user information, such as personal data, a cost center, additional contact data or hyperlinks, etc. See how this works here.
Since I use PowerApps only from time to time, I wanted to document some common actions, such as working with images and the camera control. So, here are my little notes in 6 tips.
Delegate365 allows to modify licenses in many ways, manually, automatically and with bulk-assignments. With version 8.3, the license policies will be considered for bulk assignments as well. See a description of that functionality here.
When planning IT-services between locations and in the cloud, the network speed is an essential factor. See how Microsoft manages their network and how to see your location´s bandwidth to Microsoft Azure here.
End of last year, Microsoft announced to integrate the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop to create better web compatibility. Well, here is Edge preview!
Microsoft's AI allows to analyze large amount of data, even interpreting and indexing handwritten documents and learning key topics.

Kennedy in 1963 that went public. Read more about burning questions and see the results online.
