Microsoft Search

Microsoft Search became generally available last year. Whereas Microsoft’s Bing focuses on providing an internet search engine for the consumer, Microsoft Search is aimed at the Enterprise. It uses Machine Learning (ML) from Bing and adds the power of the Microsoft Graph. For those of you not familiar with Microsoft Graph I would suggest you read the link mentioned above; however, in brief, it allows access to data within Microsoft 365 services including most Office 365 services.

Microsoft Teams – Don’t run with it before you have walked with it

Microsoft Teams is a fantastic tool; this can be seen by the success that Microsoft have had with it. They claim it is used daily by 13 million users and 19 million weekly active users. It is also used by 91 of the Fortune 100 companies – not bad for a product that is just over two years old. It is also claimed by some it is the fastest adopted product in Microsoft history after SharePoint, the product it is closely linked to.

Information Management Adoption

Let’s face it, users don’t really care much about information management and all the things that are associated with it, such as naming conventions, metadata and taxonomies. No matter how users are communicated with, they generally don’t follow best practice and as soon as we mention the word ‘governance’ they tend to switch off.


Phish me once, shame on you; phish me twice, shame on me

Do you know anyone who has been phished? Hopefully not, but if you have, let’s hope they don’t get phished again. You might think it is unlikely or near impossible to be phished twice, but sadly it’s not. There are organisations who have warned their users about attacks and, despite the warnings, users have fallen for scams, in some cases multiple times.
