4 Things I learned at #SPC14 (SharePoint Conference)
Just got back from another 5 great days at SharePoint Conference. I continue to be impressed with the execution of the conference overall and recommend going at least once to anyone who is involved in the industry.
Sure the food could be better (still going to have nightmares about those eggs) and the wi-fi was improved from 2012 but still left much to be desired. But having helped plan and organ...

Taking my OpsMgr with me… with Live Maps
One item I have not discussed in this blog post series yet is the fact that Operations Manager does have a web console and this web console can be used on some mobile platforms. The key to consider is that this web console requires Silverlight. So you either need to be able to install Silverlight on your mobile device, or you need to install a Terminal Services / Citrix configuration (or maybe use...
Taking my OpsMgr with me… with My Operations
After years of spending time in front of the Operations Manager console, I recommend occasionally stepping back and taking a look at other ways that you can get to this type of information. In the next part of this series, I am focusing on a new approach which is being used to provide access to the Operations Manager console data within modern applications.

Recommendations for reducing the impact to mobile devices during a hybrid migration to Office 365
One of the features available during a Hybrid / “rich-coexistence” migration to Office 365 is the friendly URL redirect that users can receive if they try using the old OWA URL that was pointing to the old Exchange server. However many people may not be aware that using that feature requires establishing a legacy namespace with Exchange 2007, as the Exchange 2013 cannot proxy all workloads for Ex...
