Are You a Top Office 365 Influencer? [Infographic]

Have you ever wondered if you rate as a mover or shaker in the Office 365 universe?" Well, now you have your answer, thanks to a just released list from Harmon.ie.

Harmon.ie, a company that creates software solutions to improve collaboration in the digital workplace, commissioned Scratch Marketing + Media to identify top Office 365 influencers. 

David Lavenda, vice president of product strategy for harmon.ie, said the list is a natural extension of the list of Sharepoint influencers the company has been producing annually since 2011. Because the Microsoft landscape is changing so rapidly with the development of Office 365, it was decided to extend the list beyond SharePoint, he explained.

This year’s winners were announced tonight at the Metalogix sponsored 2015 Best of Breed Party at Microsoft Ignite in Chicago.The Best of Breed Awards honor the efforts of individuals or teams who have significantly increased the value of SharePoint, Office 365 and hybrid solutions in their organization.

Most of the people on the list — 64 percent — are SharePoint MVPs, architects or specialists who also have expertise in Office 365. Another 20 percent are Office 365 MVPs, specialists or consultants and 16 percent are CTOs, Microsoft beat reporters or enterprise search influencers.

Harmion.ie Aims to Simplify Digital Worker's Lives

Harmon.ie today announced a significant expansion of its Collage digital workplace app, which the company claims offers workers rapid access to all of their content.

High on the list of improvements is easy access to email content. In spite of the proliferation of communication channels and the many complaints against it, email still holds strong in the digital workplace. Combined, the upgrades to Collage will offer a substantial improvement in the user experience, David Lavenda, vice president for products at Harmon.ie told CMSWire.

Here's a Portrait of Your Typical Mobile Microsoft User

2015-10-April-mobile-user.jpg

The typical mobile user of Microsoft's collaboration tools -- Office 365, SharePoint, Yammer and OneDrive -- isn’t a social media maven, according to a survey of user habits. But he can't live without document access.

While that may not be much of a surprise (Microsoft is the platform for the serious office worker, after all) the following finding is: iOS is the dominant mobile browser by far for accessing documents and collaborating with Microsoft tools in the enterprise.

That's an eye-opening factoid given the number of Android phones in general in circulation and the only relatively recent inroads Apple has made in the enterprise, David Lavenda, VP of product strategy at harmon.ie, told CMSWire. 

Microsoft Pushes Yammer Deeper Into Enterprises

Microsoft is pushing Yammer deeper into the enterprise with the addition of Yammer to the Office 365 K1 plan. It’s a small step forward, but gives users who don’t have desks access to it where they didn’t have access before.

Microsoft doesn’t say whether it has changed its mind and decided to offer Yammer to users who previously lacked access, except to say that it wants to give it to workers that have no fixed abode.

Harmon.ie Makes It Easier to Track Activity in the Cloud

Harmon.ie today addressed one of the biggest issues in cloud computing: how to track everything that happens in the services you are using. It's solution, Collage, pulls together enterprise cloud services onto a single screen and lets users know what’s happening across the cloud ecosystem in which they operate.

The result is a 360-degree view across enterprise cloud services providing workers with a contextual, single-screen activity stream or what Harmon.ie calls a work stream.

Here's a Way to Pull Your Project Data Together in Office 365

Although Microsoft has been developing Office 365 at a ferocious rate recently, it still remains a suite of individual applications designed to accomplish specific tasks. To enhance user navigation, harmon.ie has developed a single screen view of those applications and what’s happening in them.

This week, it took that a step further with the launch of its new Project Management Solution, an extension of its harmon.ie email that enables users to pull together all the information that is passing through Office 365, OneDrive, Lync and Yammer on a given project for easy access on either mobile or desktop.

Office Graph From a Partner's Perspective

2014-17-October-Sidecar.jpgWhen Microsoft showcased the power of Office Graph through Project Oslo, the Microsoft partner community collectively wondered about extensibility and API access. But as with many Microsoft products, it will take the greater partner community to push Office Graph into the mainstream.

To explore this dynamic, I spoke with Yaacov Cohen, CEO of Harmon.ie, to discuss the Microsoft Office Graph reveal and how it will impact the Silicon Valley-based software developer and its product line.

Microsoft Tightens the Reins on Office 365

Companies are still signing up for Yammer — despite the fact that user adoption remains a problem. 

In fact, according to Yammer co-founder David Sacks, the British grocery retailing giant Tesco has just inked a 250, 000 seat deal with Yammer. The information was contained in a memo from Sacks to Microsoft employees.

Sacks announced on Twitter late last week that he is leaving Microsoft, but did not specify why.

The Problem With Yammer? People Don't Use It

2014-23-July-see-no-evil-monkeys.jpg

Yammer is being promoted as the new social layer of SharePoint. But Microsoft is also tying it tightly into Office 365. In the past two weeks, this has resulted in the packaging of Yammer with Office 365 small business plans, while the price of Office 365 is also about to be slashed.

There are problems with Yammer. But the problem lies not the product itself.

According to David Lavenda, vice president of product strategy at Harmon.ie, the real problem is that many people who have access to it just won’t use it — or any other social network for that matter.
