Buzzkill Podcast Series

A friend and colleague of mine at AvePoint, Jay Leask, runs a podcast network and has asked me to run a series with him!

We are announcing the launch of our “Buzzkill” Podcast that addresses the less popular topics surrounding Digital Transformation in an effort to surface their importance to organizations that dismiss key aspects of change management, data governance and other topics vital to log term productivity success. We hope you’ll subscribe!

CMS Wire Contributor of the Year 2019

So thankful to be honored as a contributor of the year for CMS wire!

This really was an unexpected surprise, and I had fun answering the questions they asked for the post that came with this. 

2019 was a great year for me and for AvePoint, and I hope for the chance to help even more people with digital transformation success this year!

There are a lot of great features that will be rolling into OneDrive and SharePoint, as well as Teams this year, which means there will be a lot that many people will need to learn about and stay on top of.

Personally I’m really looking forward to the improvements that are coming to Graph, to the security and data management features that will be coming to Teams (as well as more potential APIs), and I also know there will be a TON of SPO APIs rolling out this year, which will be really cool for a lot of different reasons.

I think one of the most directly helpful things coming to Office 365 for many people will be the massively improved ability to upload an Excel file directly as a list in SharePoint Online (modern sites too!) and have the full functionality of a list available in a Teams tab without having to add it as a ‘site’ with authentication (almost there now anyway! Yaay!)

Buzz from the MS world is that Dynamics will be big this year too.

I was in to flight sims when I was younger, and I’ve recently started this old habit back up again- I’m definitely looking forward to Microsoft’s Flight Simulator releasing later in 2020!

That’s all for now! Special shout out to the bot that totally wiped my old sites’ WordPress install (.tech domains are expensive anyway), and here’s to hoping that actually attempting to secure this one works for a while!
