Everybody enjoys getting together with friends. Recently, we’ve had the pleasure of spending time with thousands of our friends—developers, IT professionals and business decision makers—at two of the most important conferences of the year. At both gatherings, we had a lot of great news to share.
At Build last week in San Francisco, we announced a new wave of capabilities for the Office platform, such as the new Office Graph API. These new capabilities will help developers create integrated experiences to enhance productivity for more than a billion Office users worldwide.
This week, at the Ignite enterprise technology conference in Chicago, we showed how Office 365 is continuing to redefine productivity to keep pace with the modern workplace as it rapidly changes and evolves. We announced a new user reporting platform for the Office 365 administration console and shared updates to First Release and our change management program.
Over the past couple of weeks, we also enhanced transparency and control for our Office 365 customers, including advanced encryption for email and Customer Lockbox for Office 365, which gives customers unprecedented control over content in Office 365 by ensuring that their content will not be accessed by Microsoft employees without their explicit approval. During the same period, we also moved Outlook for Android out of preview to make it available to more users.
That’s a tremendous number of new capabilities, updates and improvements, all designed to provide better experiences for users, developers and IT professionals.
But then again, what are friends for?
Below is a roundup of some key news items from the last couple of weeks. Enjoy!
