Staying organised is crucial to the success of any individual or team. It is no surprise, therefore, that many software options have been created to help us achieve this goal. In this blog post, we wanted to look at a relatively new option that Microsoft have introduced, called Microsoft Planner. Planner is available with the Office 365 suite, and we have been fortunate enough at Comunet to have a closer look at this platform. From the outset, we realised that Microsoft have taken a very different approach to how tasks and plans can be structured and organised, hence the reason why we were keen to share some of our insights with you in this blog post today.

Over the last few months, we have been covering some of the new programs available in Microsoft’s Office 365 suite. Today, we wanted to write about a new service that has only recently been previewed to the public – Microsoft Forms. As the name suggests, Forms is a platform that allows you to create forms that can be used as surveys, quizzes and polls. It was originally launched as part of Microsoft’s Office 365 Education package, but is now being expanded into commercial markets. We have been able to take a closer look at this new software and have outlined some of the key features and benefits below.

These days, it is hard to imagine our lives without apps. Whether we are using these applications on our smartphone, desktop computer or through a web browser, apps have the ability to streamline and simplify various processes for an organisation’s customers and employees. But how do organisations streamline and simplify the app creation process itself? In this latest addition to our blog posts on Microsoft solutions, we will be having a closer look at PowerApps, the company’s platform which aims to make app development easier.

Last week, we spoke about Microsoft’s new Teams platform and how it can assist with internal communications in a workforce. Continuing our focus on key Office 365 programs, we wanted to talk today about SharePoint. In the last few years, Comunet has been able to help several organisations setup their own SharePoint portals and the results have been very positive. In this post, we wanted to cover some of the benefits that SharePoint can deliver to your organisation, and how it may be able to work for you.

A few weeks ago, we blogged about why businesses should make the switch to Office 365. One of the core reasons identified in this blog post was that Office 365 provides more opportunities for team members within an organisation to collaborate together on various tasks and projects. Consistent with this philosophy, Microsoft recently introduced a new product in the Office 365 suite called Microsoft Teams. In this blog post, we wanted to show you some of the exciting features about Teams and talk about how it can help your organisation streamline communication across employees.

Big data is one of the key trends in the world of technology today. The shift from analogue storage (such as paper, film and tapes) to digital storage has meant that it is now easier than ever to hold large quantities of data. Furthermore, as smartphones, cameras and IoT devices (just to name a few sources) gather more information through in-built sensors, the amount of data that is produced on a day-to-day basis also continues to grow. But how can an organisation make sense of all this available data, and use it to its advantage? In this blog post, we will take a closer look at how Amazon Web Services and Microsoft can help.

Yesterday’s state-wide blackout in South Australia left thousands of people in the dark for hours on end. Events such as these do not happen often, but that does detract from the now-proven fact that they can happen. The question is, were your IT systems prepared for yesterday’s events? More importantly, are they prepared if such events happen again?
