Business Intelligence, the Microsoft style

Of course, Microsoft has been in the Business Intelligence (BI) game for some time now, but until now the solution sets lacked focus, clarity, consistency, and homogeneity. Well, in my opinion that is. But wait no longer, the company is bringing its a game to BI with clear and concise messaging and a much more focused and simplified tool set:
  • Excel – one authoring tool for your BI. And a great “Personal BI” solution.
  • SharePoint – the best solution for sharing, collaborating, and adding mobility (tablets, smartphones) to your BI. And a great “Group BI” solution.
  • SQL Server – rock solid high-performance, high-availability data platform for supporting very large data sets, and providing reporting, analysis, and integration services. And a great “Corporate BI” solution.

As far as BI solutions go, it hardly gets any simpler than that. And in full recognition that it's a big world out there (or is it a Big Data world?) there's plenty of support for non-Microsoft platforms - Oracle, SAP, Hadoop, Hive, etc.:
So, arm yourself with the awesome, easy to use tools like PowerPivot and PowerView and Explore, Visualize, and Control:

Mail-enabled security groups in Office 365

Another update (11/19/2013):  further evolution of Office 365 services makes creation of distribution and security groups even easier, plus there's now an option of creating a dynamic distribution group (click here for more information):    Update (08/06/2012): a clear sign of Office 365 evolving along the same lines as other agile cloud services - small incremental features and minor new functionality are being delivered almost continuously and, unlike important major service updates,  without much fanfare. For example, there's no need to resort to using PowerShell to setup mail-enabled security groups anymore, it can now be done at creation using management portal:       Those managing Office 365 ( O365 ) tenant via the Microsoft Online Services Portal  ( MOS Portal ) interface would notice that there are two distinct group entities: Security Groups: can be created via MOS Portal (main portal page>Management>Security Groups) and used for assigning

Skype for Business and VTC Interoperability

Skype for Business (SfB) has a very, very strong potential, I have written about it in my previous post . I can't think of any other platform that shows as much promise in terms of bridging personal and business communications as well as unifying different modes and mediums. And all of this may have started with a strategic acquisition of Skype by Microsoft in 2011. That said, the road ahead is not without challenges. For example, interoperability with other platforms. Making SfB work with existing Video TeleConferencing (VTC) systems, many of which represent significant capital investments in organizations' infrastructure, could be of a particular importance. After reading statements like Skype for Business is based on Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) standards and supports H.264 (MPEG-4 video coding standard) one can come to a quick conclusion that integration and/or interoperability with other VTC solutions is easy or nearly automatic. Unfortunately, the industry is not
