  • He goes on to say “The emergence of cloud as the core for new 'business as a service' offerings will accelerate cloud adoption and dramatically raise the cloud model's strategic value beyond CIOs to CXOs of all types."
  • I always tell people about my first day of work at the phone company in the early 1990’s, where I was handed a giant 3-ring binder. I went on to help build out an internal knowledge management portal, which introduced me to the space.

    My first real experience with the entire concept of a paperless office actually started back in 2001 at a company called E2open where I was hired as a product manager to help create a hosted collaboration platform for high-tech manufacturing companies to more easily and flexibly collaborate with their design partners and manufacturing teams around the world. Which led me directly to Microsoft in 2006…

  • You see what I did there? I jumped right to where I said you should not jump. But after all, I don’t know the specifics of your organizations, or the maturity level of your collaboration efforts to know which pieces to suggest. Technology can be a crutch – because its easier to stand here and talk about tech than it is to get at the root of the problems within any organization, which are inevitably people and cultural issues that keep you moving forward with your strategy.

    Having said that, there are tools that can move you in the right direction
  • Office Lens now converts pictures of paper documents to PDF files—Go paperless! The Office Lens app for Windows Phone makes pictures of whiteboards and docs readable and saves them to OneNote. Now you can use Office Lens to take a picture of a document save it as a PDF file. The file is automatically saved to your OneDrive, so you can access and search it on any device. It’s like having a scanner in your pocket.

  • Office Mix authoring now easier for first-time users—Getting started with Office Mix, the free add-in for PowerPoint, just got easier for new users. Step-by-step instructions guide you through creating your first mix recording in two minutes or less. And the new Create an Office Mix template links you to examples and tutorials. For experienced users, publishing Office Mix presentations is now easier.

    Sharing Office Mixes on social networks and improved embedding available—When you play a public Office Mix with audio or video, you can now pause the mix to see options to share to your favorite social network, including Twitter. And added support for two of the most popular embed formats on the web, and oEmbed, means you can embed a mix in your blog or website.
  • Share your work with the world
    Publish unlimited PowerPoint, Word, Excel, Office Mix, and PDF documents, as well as Sways, for free – always with rich formatting intact.
