EP74: Looping the ribbon around Microsoft’s 2021 presents

Marijn and Steve open their Christmas presents from Microsoft and peek of what’s cool and what’s cooler. They touch on the complexity of collaboration, the growth of Adoption and the fact that Compliance is the ugly Christmas sweater that is a little nerdy and growing more complex.

Marijn and Steve open their Christmas presents from Microsoft and peek of what’s cool and what’s cooler.  They touch on the complexity of collaboration, the growth of Adoption and the fact that Compliance is the ugly Christmas sweater that is a little nerdy and growing more complex.  

Marijn talks about Socks and Beanies with fairy dust on as he talks about the gift if the Microsoft List before discussing if he would walk around with a Scrotum beanie label on his head.  Conclusion is that Lists are cool and going to sub-zero levels of coolness.

Then Big Peat makes us both smile with a Kick in the balls!!  Finally, Steve must be told by Marijn to stop because this podcast can go on and on so don’t stop at the Whisky some cool stuff at the end you do not want to miss… so many cool presents.

Steve and Marijn open their Christmas presents for 2021

Is MS Teams trying to do too much, its more navigate than content… the one App to rule them all.

Marijn has a new consultant tag line “Its manageable” 

Is Loop the answer to the complexity of MS teams UI trying to get you to everything…

Steve decides that his new 2022 Lego characters will be the personas for the 2022 adoption program.

Compliance gets a good going over with Steve talking about Auto-Auto-Auto equals expensive and more expensive but cool, very very cool… and complex so work for consultants well into the 2020’s

We had to feel the pain of going through Microsoft strategy of the modern pages, libraries and lists to get to a point where Microsoft can now bring out rapid functionality development on Forms, Lists, Power Platform etc.

Stream for SPO must be the present you save until last because you have more to gain from it.  Video still needs to become a medium that the average Joe uses every day.  But the new functionality coming out like comments live in the video, and transcripts are back after missing for some time.

Steve sent the last podcast through the transcript service and Marijn gets transcribed as Moron 😊 

At the final present on Stream, Steve adds in some pixie dust and starts to imagine some of the cool stuff Microsoft could do which includes auto editing a 30-minute meeting to a 5-minute video and including the emotive expressions to identify the important items or the heavily discussed items in the meeting.

Finally Big Peat is tasted, and the boys conclude about how big and complex M365 is becoming and almost impossible to track and be the expert on everything.
