5 Administration Tips for SharePoint and OneDrive for Business

2014-06-August-traffic-police.jpgI've been planning on writing a Top 5 article on SharePoint administration and management for the past six months, but now that I'm finally doing it I find I must expand the scope. What's different?

The pace of change has accelerated.

Having worked in the SharePoint space for the past 10 years, it's easy to note the changes, the biggest shift being what is happening with Office 365. With OneDrive for Business, Microsoft has taken aim at the online drive space. And just as the competitors, they are trying to replace your hard drive and file shares with a cloud version, providing 1 terabyte of storage for each user.

Microsoft Releases (Almost) Last Windows Updates

2014-17-July-Nadella-Speech.jpg

Question: When is an update not an update? Answer: When Microsoft says so.

If that seems a bit cryptic, consider this. Microsoft is releasing a number of updates to its Windows 8.1 operating system and Windows Server 2012 R2, but you’re not supposed to call them updates.

The thinking is simple. From here on, Microsoft will no longer be holding onto improvements and waiting for a major upgrade to release those updates, as it did in April with Windows 8.1. Instead, improvements will be released as they become available.

Why Your Doc Management Strategy Isn't Working

There’s no getting away from document management chaos. Even with the development of file sharing technology, cloud computing and agile document management, workers are still drowning in sea of untraceable and hard to track documents.

In fact, according to recent research from document management vendor Docurated, the average sales or marketing professional is spending up to nine hours every week just looking for documents as they wrestle with legacy and contemporary file system architectures that haven’t been overhauled in years.

My Tolerance for Risk Appetite Is Fading

Making people believe they have effective risk management because they discuss a point-in-time list of so-called “top risks” and set limits for those few risks is making them believe in fairies.

It is setting them up to be surprised and for a failure to deliver success.

Hey NetApp & Syncplicity: Look What EMC and Egnyte are Doing

2014-05-august-lob-a-ball.jpg

Based on what the tech press said, present company included, you’d think every enterprise on the planet is rushing to lob its files into the heavens.

But that’s not the case, said Bart Giordano, Vice President of Business Development at Egnyte, which provides enterprise file sharing solutions built from the cloud down.

Instead, he said, many companies are looking at mixed solutions, meaning that they’ll keep their most private and strategic files behind the firewall, other files in the cloud, and still others will take advantage of hybrid architectures.

Not only that, but enterprises will also be able to leverage their existing storage investments without sacrifice.

What Happens to Documentum If Elliott Mgmt. Breaks-Up EMC?

If you follow EMC investment news, you’ve seen the headlines.

The Wall Street Journal ran with “Activist Investor Pushes EMC to Break Up”. Bloomberg news headlinedwith “EMC Said to Be Targeted for Breakup by Activist Elliott.” Business Insider went with “An Activist Investor Takes Aim At A Multi-Billion Dollar Tech Company.”

We could go on, but the point is already well made. Elliott Management, an activist hedge fund which generates a 14.6 percent net compound annual return for its investors, compared to 10.9 percent for the S&P 500, has loaded up on EMC shares and wants to split the “EMC Federation” (made up of EMC,VMWare and Pivotal) up into parts.

EMC Syncplicity Redefines Work for the Mobile-First Era

2014-31-July-jeetu-patel.jpg

If there’s anything EMC Syncplicity General Manager Jeetu Patel is more passionate about than security and functionality of his company’s Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing (EFSS) solution, it’s Syncplicity’s app.

“Have you seen it?” he asked the last time his team unveiled one.

He was as enthusiastic as a dad whose kid had just hit his first home run.

And though Patel’s passion goes a long way, it’s the app itself that’s the real story. You don’t wish that you were using a hip, consumer solution when you work with it. Instead you wish that the app you use to share photos, files, and messages with your friends and family was more like Syncplicity. And that’s exactly what Patel wants.

Why AirWatch by VMWare Stands Out from the EFSS Crowd

AirWatch co-founder and General Manager John Marshall won't say anything negative about his competitors in the Enterprise File Sync and Share (EFSS) space — even off the record.  He won’t even comment why Secure Content Locker, AirWatch’s Mobile Content Management solution, might give any one of the 100 plus other vendors competing for the same customers a run for their money.

“We’re very respectful of other players. They’ll be better at some things. We’ll be better at others,” he said.

CrossIdeas Acqusition Underlines IBM's Security Drive

2014-31-July-crossideas.jpg

IBM seems hungry for acquisitions, even though its revenues are down two percent on the year. The latest buy comes in the shape of CrossIdeas, a Rome, Italy-based cyber security vendor.

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed, which means Big Blue probably got it relatively cheap. It also underlines IBM’s growing strength in the security space after it took third position as the biggest security vendor globally after Symantec and McAfee, pushing Trend Micros into fourth place.

Mac News: OneNote Upgraded, But What About Office?

2014-7-31 OneNote for Mac.jpg

Microsoft has just announced major upgrades for OneNote for Mac and iOS. They're interesting upgrades and point to a future where Microsoft works on cross-platform development, offering everyone access to everything.

It’s a great vision. And while Microsoft is making progress, it is still far from reality. While upgrades and access to OneNote will be a major plus for users, there’s still nothing for Office for Mac.

Top 5 Internet of Things Security Concerns

2014-30-July-hp-iot-security.jpg

Security concerns are developing faster than the Internet of Things (IoT). But HP claims it is tackling IoT related concerns head on and has identified what it describes as the top five issues for businesses to consider.

The research, carried out by Fortify, part of HP Enterprise Security Products, confirms those security concerns. It shows 70 percent of the most commonly used IoT devices contain vulnerabilities, including password security, encryption and general lack of granular user access permissions.
