Breaking collaboration boundaries with external partners through Teams

Guest access, external access, and shared channels all offer new ways to extend the boundaries of communication and collaboration. According to Microsoft research, IT executives report that 55 percent of all collaboration is with external business partners, and more than 300 midsize to large enterprises identified the two most common elements of collaboration that have risen in importance over the past two years: - Fostering collaboration with a wide range of people inside and outside the organization (68%) - Effective team communication (72%) The obvious question: How can we take advantage of the fundamentally deeper relationships these tools allow us to enjoy with our fellows in partner organizations while ensuring that our most sensitive data and interactions remain secure? Considering this question, it is high time for a re-imagining of how we approach and structure inter- and intra-organizational relationships from a technical perspective, with a renewed focus on distinguishing what makes day-to-day work most meaningful and how to empower users across different environments to work together most meaningfully. In this session, we will explore the ways in which the Teams platform can help us realize the goal of bringing external and internal users closer together while maintaining the integrity of the team, and refresh both our perspectives and priorities for organizing and supporting users and their flow of work.

An end-to-end look at Microsoft Syntex

Microsoft Syntex is a big step forward in providing the ability to intelligently identify content across your Microsoft 365 environment. Unstructured content is being produced at an exponential rate in our modern workplaces today and we need a way to manage it at scale by providing structure (content types and metadata) and governance (security and compliance controls) to it. Microsoft Syntex is that and so much more! To demonstrate this new capability, Joanne Klein will walk through a live demo of using a Microsoft Syntex AI document understanding model to intelligently identify Statements of Work across SharePoint libraries. The walkthrough will cover setup, training, deployment, and all the "extras" you get with a Syntex license. Microsoft Syntex. It’s almost magic.

Securing Your Remote Workforce Through Azure Virtual Desktop

Hybrid workplaces are here to stay, and organizations are faced with new challenges surrounding securing their remote workforce. Businesses are invested in pivoting to a cloud-first approach, but how can you properly secure your environment when the workforce is dispersed, using their own devices, and connecting from unknown networks? Microsoft’s Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) allows organizations to quickly deploy managed workstations for a modern and flexible remote workforce. AVD enables organizations to control the workspace of its employees even in a BYOD environment; the organization controls the virtual desktop and employees can remain responsible for their own devices. This separation allows for a lower administrative overhead, a more secure environment, and a highly scalable solution for organizational growth. This session will focus on how your organization can leverage AVD to empower your remote workforce while maintaining control of your data and securing your cloud infrastructure.
