Microsoft Office 365 to be Revamped

Microsoft has added some new features to its Office 365 and even given a preview of what lies in store for the platform. At the SharePoint Conference in Sin City, the whole scheme got elaborated upon. The idea is to make Microsoft Office 365 a more suitable site for APIs, social interactivity and machine-based learning tools. 

The crux of it all was Oslo, an application that allowed the usage of Office Graph for the interlinking of individuals and databanks. Oslo is due to be launched in the middle of 2014. It is a wonderful app indeed. 

It arrives at conclusive results by collating the data from emails, various files, IM and audiovisual communications as well as collective/individual interactions on SharePoint Online and Yammer. In short, Oslo leads you into places where no one has gone before. 

"Oslo shows you things you didn’t know were there,” said Alan Lepofsky, a Constellation Research analyst. “It provides a very personal experience for each individual.”

Microsoft oOffice 365 also takes full advantage of Office Graph. Microsoft and others will be coming up with a brand new arsenal of tools to augment these preexisting platforms. People who are in different professions and situations will benefit fully from the instruments offered via this application. 

"Office Graph is described as part of Office 365’s portfolio, thus becoming one more indicator that Microsoft is going to be driving a lot of value through the cloud, applying soft pressure on customers reluctant to move,” said TJ Keitt, a Forrester Research analyst.

And project management will be a cinch too. Inline social interaction can take place in a jiffy as well. Yammer provides all that is necessary in the way of getting a grip on the situation. 

Microsoft acquired Yammer for $1.2 billion two years ago. And it has been amalgamating it with its own creations ever since. So far the experiment has been somewhat of a success. The decision to merge with Yammer was not just inspired by greed. It had a lot to do with the urge to borrow its think tank capabilities. 

"That Microsoft has encouraged and embraced this vision shows their acquisition of Yammer wasn’t just a technology grab: They really wanted Yammer’s thinking to influence the development of the entire Office portfolio,” Keitt said.

Besides all this, Microsoft is to allow an SDK to be released with its Windows 8 and Android platforms for the sake of programmers. The only thing that is lacking is the inclusion of an API model. However, you can’t win them all and besides nobody’s perfect.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
