Inside Identity with f5 Networks


(upbeat instrumental music) – Hi, I’m Sue. I’m here with Calvin. We’re here today to talk
about how Microsoft and F5 are working together and
using customer obsession to make great value and
benefits for our customers. How are you doing, Calvin? – I’m doing great. It’s a pleasure to be here. – Good, thank you. And thank you for the cup. – [Calvin] You’re welcome. – So tell me what these symbols are. – Well, it represents F5’s values or the behaviors that we’re
all supposed to follow. There are five of them. I’ll reference a couple of them, though, because we have them in common. – [Sue] Okay. – One is, you referenced it, it’s obsessing over customer need. You know, we’re in business
to delight our customers, provide value for them, if you will, and so obsessing over their
need is one of the things that you need to do to be able
to be successful with that. And one of the other behaviors is standing for diversity and inclusion. (playful instrumental music) – Let’s talk about being
in someone’s shoes. I think our, we have to walk
a mile in our customers’ shoes to know what they need.
– That’s for sure. – And we’ve been collaborating together, and I think the partnership is going well. Love the meetings we’re having and the things we’re talking about, and I think that really, like I said, came from customers telling us that they needed to have help. – That’s why we’re sitting here together. – Exactly, exactly.
– Yeah. – So we’re telling everyone
to go to the cloud, and they’re like, “We
can’t get there from here.” – [Calvin] That’s right. – Let’s slow down, let’s talk
about what we need to do, and lo and behold, F5
has a great solution. – That’s right, that’s right. You know, we need to meet
customers where and when and how and with what
they want to be met with and as it relates to
their access strategies, what they’re saying to us
– Certainly. – is, “Hey, look, I want
something that covers “all the bases, of course, I want it all, “and I want it to be easy.” Okay, great, can you be
a little more specific? “Well, I need access for my applications “that are in the cloud that are SASS apps, “but also, I have a lot of applications “that are still on-prem
in the Data Center. “Can you give us a solution
that encompasses all of that?” And working together,
that’s how we’re doing it. – Well, you know, you mentioned SaaS apps. I think that that’s an
area where, as Microsoft, we feel like customers are often confused, and they think of Azure Active Directory as just being for Microsoft products. – Right. – Like Office and Azure. And we really want them to understand that it’s also available
for all those SASS apps. So we’ve come up with
a new tagline for that in saying that it’s, our
solution is from Microsoft, not just for Microsoft. – [Calvin] That’s true. – And you help us then create that ability to have all apps under the protection of Azure Active Directory. – That’s right, that’s right, of course. They want access for their
SaaS apps, their cloud apps, but also for their, you
know, Oracle Business apps, maybe it’s J.D. Edwards, maybe it’s CIBL, maybe it’s PeopleSoft,
E-Business Suite or SAP HANA, or ERP applications, you
know, and so since F5 is ubiquitously on-prem, sitting
in front of applications of that build, adding our APM solution in concert with Azure Active Directory gives them that full
suite of access capability they’re looking for.
– Exactly. – Yeah.
– Yeah, that’s great. (playful instrumental music) – Of course we obsess over customer need. You know, everybody has a different way of getting this feedback,
this diversity of perspective from the marketplace. So F5, of course our primary
source of customer feedback is through our field. They are the primary
advocates for our customer. They come back to headquarters
and advocate on their behalf as it relates to the sort of
innovation they’re looking for for us to be able to lean
in on their success more. But we have found that we
need to widen the aperture, if you will. And so we’ve created this
bespoke experience for customers, from all geos, of all different sizes, different implementation constructs, different technology needs, if you will. And we bring them to
Seattle, F5 headquarters, for a three-week event we call Aspire. We aspire to do a better job
of satisfying their needs. And so we bring them in for
this bespoke experience, and we get their unique perspective. We hear their voice in a unique way. And so we get a better, a
more diverse perspective, if you will. – Sure, sure, like one of
the things my team does is works, you know, our
job is to cut the distance between engineering and our customers so we can operate at cloud speed. One of the things that we do is what we call Customer Onsites. It sounds a little bit
like your Aspire events. And what we do is we
bring customers together, and we’ve done this now for four years, about every six months. And we create this agenda,
and we have the ability for customers to hear what’s coming. And we learned over time that
it felt like we were just in “tell mode” too much and
not in “listen mode” enough. – Yeah. – And then when customers
started talking more, they started to tell us how
much they really enjoyed hearing from each other. Then we got to the
point where they started bringing their own case studies,
and so most of the agenda, about three-fourths of
the agenda is actually customers talking rather than us talking. And even our latest iteration, what we do is we actually
ask the customers for what they want the agenda to be. So they actually drive what it is we’re gonna be talking about. And we’re finding that those events are just amazingly valuable for us. It energizes the team to understand what customers are really doing. And as, like you said,
the customers feel heard. And they feel like they
get more value than that, than even say in an industry conference or even our own Ignite, because
they have that immersion and an ability to really go deep, and then for us to really
understand their scenarios. – And regarding listening in in Aspire, something that we have learned
that is super valuable is you can’t just listen to
seek feedback from your fans. It’s as important, more
important, to get feedback from folks that are less happy with you. Maybe they’re not your fan, not as aware of your
solutions as possible. They bring a unique perspective
to the table as well. – We do the same. We have people, we have
in-product feedback, and we see whether
people are dissatisfied. And we get an opportunity to talk to them, and we give them an opportunity to really tell us what’s missing, tell us what they need more of. – Right. – And hopefully move
them from being someone who’s dissatisfied, of course, to someone who’s satisfied.
– You want to reward their bad news.
– Yes. – It’s not what I wanted to hear, but it’s what I needed to hear. – Absolutely.
– You know, so thank you. – Absolutely. (playful instrumental music) So the solution that we have is secure, which is paramount for CISOs. – Baseline. – But then you have the users
who have to have something that’s easy.
– Right. – So if it’s not easy, then
they’ll try to go around it. We all know that. So we have to have security
balanced by user experience. So can you tell me a little bit, how does that turn out in your hallways? – Sure. Well, you know, so starting
out what got us here. Customers were looking
for modern authentication. SSLO, multi-factoral authentication, conditional access, et cetera. And so we have the technology
today to make that possible. Okay, so now, customers
are taking advantage of it. What feedback are we
getting from them now? Well, okay, this is great. Thank you, Microsoft, thank you F5. Now we’re looking for an easier
implementation experience because, you know, our
application portfolio’s only gonna grow. You know, my users have
this sensational appetite for more and more application, which increases my attack surface. And so can you make this as
easy as possible to deploy? And so working in concert
(clapping) with Microsoft, you are informing our customers, and you are informing our roadmap for working on simpler
implementation scenarios. Call it an easy button if you will. – Yeah, well that thing about the roadmap, that’s like basically our
customers are building the roadmap for us.
– Right, sure. – And so that makes it
much easier for us to know that when we build it, it will be used. – Right. One of the primary on-premise applications that we are highly likely
to find our customers wanting us to provide access for, let’s provide easy
configuration out of the box for those applications. And so that’s what we’re striving to do. – Yeah. And Satya coming in and
telling us and reminding us that we ought to be partner-led, always, that that was in our beginnings,
and that’s still our ethos, I think that’s really
given us the wake-up call to really be a good partner. And we’re really, really
serious about doing that. (upbeat instrumental music) So we’ve been talking about
how we’ve been listening to customers, and now
let’s talk a little bit about how are we listening
to our employees? What are we doing to make sure
that their voices are heard? – Super important, it’s super important because if we’re gonna get the most informed portfolio of insight, it’s overwhelmingly gonna
come from our employees. Yes, we’re talking directly to customers, but our employees are our
advocates, our informers, if you will.
– Yeah. – [Calvin] So we have to do that. – Well, if you want to create a solution for a diverse world, it’s best if it comes from a diverse team. – True, that’s right, and then we don’t have any blind spots. – Yeah.
– Right? And so you have to take
very specific actions. This has been my experience, if you will, and I’m pretty sure I’m not alone. You have to be deliberate in your actions to make sure that other voices are heard, that people feel comfortable speaking up, that they feel included,
because when they feel included, they just give that much more. They lean in on the
project that much more. The data’s indisputable. We know this now from social science. – So that reminds me of one
of the things we’re doing now at Microsoft are values conversations. And that’s really a
way for us to make sure that respect, integrity,
and accountability are a part of everything we do. And it’s really exciting to see. People really respond to that ability to see what they can do
better, or what are we like when we’re at our best, what are we like when we’re not at our best, in order to make the
environment just more, giving everyone a better
sense of belonging. (playful instrumental music) – So we’re talking quite
a bit about the values and the practice of making
people feel included to get a diversity of opinion. What are some specific
actions people can take? What sort of things
have you seen that work, or what sort of experiences have you had on the other side of it? – Oh, you know what they say, you don’t always remember what was said, but you remember how they feel? – [Calvin] Yes. – Just even yesterday I was in a meeting around a conference room table. Everyone was introducing each other. I was in between two men. And I was skipped. And I was thinking, “Seriously,
in this day and age?” So you know, it’s still happening. And I’m sure it was not intentional, and that’s the notion of unconscious bias. – Right. – But it does happen. But what to do about it? I think, I’ve always
said start with yourself. I know that I do those same things. And so it’s really
important to become aware when something happens, think about how you
could do it differently. And if it is really egregious, speak up and say
something to someone else. Or I think there’s
another, even a third one, which is help someone else
when something happens to them. And that’s what we call allyship. So it’s the ability to
see something that happens and then, or even to prevent
something from happening, be a person who can advocate for someone, make sure that, you know, call on them, make sure that they are being
able to be contributing, invited to the right
meetings, all of those things that help that person
have a seat at the table. – So model the right behavior, but then also specifically have
a positive impact on people. – Yes, yes. (upbeat instrumental music) I’m a voracious reader. I’ve most recently been reading this book, it’s called “The Four
Paws of Spiritual Success” by David Michie, and it’s
actually how to apply the Buddhism concepts to daily life. – Okay. – You know, you can be
any religion, really, and apply these concepts of good living. And so I was a first reader. I actually had a chance
to get an early copy, and I wrote my first review on Amazon. So I’m in print, I feel
kind of like Navin Johnson in “The Jerk.”
(both laughing) – Free publicity. – That’s right, that’s right. So anyway, what are you reading these days besides newspapers? – Business book that I read
recently, not once, but twice, was Geoffrey Moore’s “Zone to Win,” the principles of which
we’re using at F5, actually. – So I’m familiar with
his “Crossing the Chasm.” So this is new print. So tell me about it. – Well, the point, the
middle level with the time that we’ve got here is
companies historically miss horizon two and horizon
three opportunities because they run the entire business in what Geoffrey would
call the performance zone. And so you invest behind revenue. And so in that kind of environment, you starve incubation
opportunities for horizon two and horizon three from the
blood and oxygen that you need to get launch velocity, if you will. – So tell me, what we’re doing together, where does that fit in this model? – Well, actually, I would argue, and I think Geoffrey would agree, that my customer at F5 is
our security business unit who owns the APM on BIG- IP solution. And so this is an integration
that will help them satisfy their business goals in 2020. However, Geoffrey would say every zone has its own quadrants, if you will, and so we are incubating. This is an incubation zone
within the performance zone of taking a solution
as a result of feedback from a few forward-leaning
customers for the benefit of the rest of our customers, and we will be graduated
into common implementation scenarios for the rest of the customers. But maybe you would say
now, going back to another Geoffrey Moore book, we’ve
got to get ’em across a chasm. – Oh, absolutely. It’s really been a pleasure
talking to you today. – Likewise. I appreciate the opportunity to be here. I’m looking forward to
continuing to drive innovation for our customers. – Excellent. Sounds great. (upbeat instrumental music)

Why Pay More? The $30 Xbox Controller


– We’ve talked before about
the best cheap wired controller you can grab for your Xbox One. And one of the companies that has made a lot of these controllers, Power A, reached out to me to try out one of their new designs that’s coming out in just about a month’s time, the Power A enhanced wired controller. So we’re gonna give this guy a spin and compare it to what
Power A’s made in the past and how this improves upon it or if there’s anything missing from it and then compare it against
my favorite cheap controller that we tried last time from PDP. To be honest, I wasn’t really a huge fan of some of the controllers
that Power A released before for the Xbox One. And there’s two main
ones that I looked at. There’s this guy right here, which is kind of like the standard wired
controller they had before. It’s a very plain and simple one. There’s not any kind of
special features or anything. It’s just a cheaper wired
Xbox One controller. What the problem is is that
when it came to the shape and handling of it, it just
wasn’t very comfortable. It’s one of those controllers
where when you pick it up and feel it, you immediately know, “Oh right, this is third-party.” It just doesn’t feel very good. The buttons and everything were fine. But as far as the actual grip design and the pulling of the plastic, it just didn’t have a great feel. Now, another one they did
that’s a little fancier is this one right here, which is the Power A Fusion controller. Now, the idea behind the Fusion is that it has all kinds of
additional special features going on, some of which are cool, but they came at the expense of it also being less comfortable still. It has these grip designs going on that I think the idea was that it makes it more grippier for your palms, but instead, it just feels awkward. However, the upside to it
is that is gives the ability to change out the sticks, so
you can do different designs, which was really neat. And it has two buttons on the back that you can remap. Really handy. So this one had some
cool functional benefits, but once again, it just didn’t really have the right feel to it. Another problem that both
of these controllers have is that while yes, of course,
they are a wired controller, they’re hard-wired, so you can’t– this is just always in the controller, which for storage purposes
can be kind of annoying. The balance point on this is
they do have old school stuff: breakaway cables, which is kind of neat, but compared to just being able to remove the cable entirely,
it just kind of seems like not the best choice. So these are all things that are addressed in the new controller,
which I actually really like a lot more. I mean, you can immediately
tell just by looking at this thing that instead of trying to go for any kind of
crazy, futuristic look or something that looks vastly different, it is much closer to the standard XBOX One controller design. Really, right out of the
box, I could immediately tell this guy was just a lot more comfortable than the other Power A
controllers I’ve used. And actually, out of all
the different third-party Xbox One controllers I’ve used, at least on the cheaper
side, this one comes the closest to feeling like I’m just using a standard Xbox One controller, albeit one that’s wired. And that is one of the immediate upsides, too, compared to the other controllers is, like I said, those guys were hardwired all the time whereas this one has moved on to a design where you have a removable micro USB cable, which
is a gigantic upgrade. Now, it does not feature
all the additional functions that the Fusion controller had. You are stuck with just
these two thumbsticks, but these are at least
the kind of standard, more popular design you would use. So that’s works, at least. However, it does have the
two remappable buttons on the back side right
here, which you can set up with this button right here. So you’re still getting
that additional feature. And of the two, that’s definitely the better one to have. Features aside, when it
come to just how it feels using it as a controller, like I said, this is the closest to
feeling like you’re using an actual Xbox One, not
just ’cause the grip design is very, very close, but the
button and stick quality is all a lot better, too. The buttons feel very
close, not the exact same as an official Xbox but very close to it. The only part that feels a little weak is the triggers. There’s an extra kind
of sense of roughness that goes on with the
spring where you really feel the feedback a little too much once you’re getting down on it, but everything else–the sticks, D-pad– all feel great. So, out of the Power A controllers, this is definitely the best
one they’ve done so far, but the important question
is “Is this the actual best cheap controller you
can grab for Xbox One?” By the way, if you wanna
see some BTS of this video or some more pictures of this guy, make sure check out my
Instagram link down below. Previously, when we reviewed a whole bunch of different cheap Xbox home controllers, the guy that came out as the winner was this PDP controller right here. And a lot of the reasons why I really like this controller are
actually the same reasons why I’m starting to really like this Power A controller. It doesn’t have a whole lot
of fancy functions or features or anything, but it
does have a grip design that is very close to a
regular Xbox One controller, so it’s really comfortable. And on top of that, it
has a removable cable, which is awesome. Now, this does have one special feature, which is that it has
onboard audio controls, so if you’re using a headset, you can use the D-pad right here to do things like increase or decrease your volume or mute your mic, which is handy. So how does this guy compare to the Power A enhanced controller? Honestly, they’re pretty comparable. They checkmark a lot of the same boxes in that they’re both comfortable, they’re both pretty similar
to an Xbox One controller, and they both have detachable cables. The main thing that
really differentiates them is what additional function they have, whether that’s the onboard audio controls on the PDP controller or
the remappable buttons on the back for the Power A one. So that could be the defining thing of which version you prefer. If, however, you just wanna
talk about the general comfort of them both, there’s very
nitpicky, little differences where one beats the other out, so let’s dive into that starting with what the PDP controller has going on. As far as strengths go
on the PDP controller, the main two areas are in
the sticks and the triggers. Now, the sticks are very similar at first as far as the tension
and precision movement. Where you really notice
the difference, though, is in the grips on the
stick heads, which I like a little more on the PDP controller. And when you’re moving around the stick in a circular motion,
you’ll feel less friction on the ring here compared to the Power A. And then the triggers,
like I already mentioned, the Power A’s has this little
bit of extra resistance that I don’t like the feel of when you’re pressing down on it. The PDP feels better. It’s still not quite on par with using an actual Xbox One
controller, but of the two, this one does have the
better trigger feel. On the other hand, the
power A controller has the better grip and the better buttons. Now, like I said,
they’re both very similar to an actual Xbox One controller as far as how they
feel, but the PDP design has this sort of flat edge
on the inner part here, which feels a little uncomfortable to me whereas the Power A one,
it’s a curved surface that feels much better. Now, as for the buttons,
the PDP’s has a bad habit of feeling like they’re
sticking a little bit whereas the ABXY on here feels much closer to an official controller. In fact, probably has the best
feeling buttons out of all the third-party ones I’ve used. At the end of the day, these are both good cheap controllers you can grab for Xbox One or even for using on PC. But when push comes to shove,
if I had to pick one of them, I think I’m gonna have to give the win to the Power A controller now. The PDP one is still a solid
one you can grab today, but the Power A one, when it comes out, it’s gonna offer the better grips. It has better button feel. And, while onboard
audio controls are cool, I definitely like having
the remappable buttons right here more so. Now, like I said, this guy is not out yet. It’s coming out in about a month. We’ll put a link down below so you guys can check it out. And we’ll see you guys later.

What’s New with Microsoft 365 | January 2020


(upbeat music) – Hello, I’m Arthur. – And I’m Candace. – And we’re hosts for What’s
New with Microsoft 365. And today, we’re gonna talk
about what’s new in January. So this month, we’re focusing on new tools for firstline workers and managers, new experiences across
Office apps, and more. Let’s get started. If you haven’t already heard, the new Microsoft Edge is finally here. – Yay! – Let’s check in with Vivian, who will share more about the news. – I’m here with Eric. And he’s a PMM that worked very closely on the rollout of the new Edge
browser that’s now available. Eric, thanks so much for joining us today. – Thanks for having me, Vivian. – I know there’s a ton
going on with the new Edge. And it’s no secret that this is built on open-source software in Chromium. But what can you tell us about the new major features available? – We have a lot of great new features for the new Microsoft Edge. We’re really optimizing for performance, a lotta security by Microsoft,
simple management tools, but then also new productivity
tools for the web. So some of those, particularly for end
users and organizations, are things like the
Enterprise new tab page. So on your new tab page, you can actually fully customize it. And you can connect it to
your Office 365 account. When you do that, you then
get to see shared files. You get to see pinned sites, frequent sites with your organization. And really, it’s kind of
this portal for productivity for you when you’re at work. One of the other things that we have going in the new Microsoft Edge
is Microsoft Search in Bing. So this is a way for you to
actually search your Internet just using the Bing search engine. So you can go ahead and
type in the Bing search bar or on the Enterprise new tab page, and you can get access to
your Internet’s files, sites, people, even floor plans
at your organization. So it’s a really contained experience that’s right there
alongside the web results. – I love the idea of the Internet just being simply built into your browser. That’s super convenient. – It’s really great.
We like to refer to it as kind of being able
to search the Internet right alongside the Internet. Just as easy.
– That’s perfect. So we got the new Enterprise tab page, we have Microsoft Search in Bing. But what about privacy? What can you share about
new privacy enhancements in the browser? – So privacy was something
that we really thought about when developing the new Microsoft Edge. And so we have something
called tracking prevention, which is a brand new
feature for the browser. You can access this by
clicking the little lock icon up in the address bar. And then you can manage it from there in three different ways. There’s a strict setting. There is a balanced setting. And then there’s also the basic setting. And balanced and tracking
default in general is on by default. So this really prevents you
from having trackers from sites that you maybe haven’t visited from following you around
as you surf the web. And additionally, IT
admins can even set that through Group Policy, so that they know while their information
workers are browsing, they are staying protected. – That’s really great that
the new browser really offers that degree of control just because IT admins are
really gonna be the ones that know what’s best
for their organization. – Exactly. – Is there anything else you’d like to add about the new Edge? – One of our big new features
for the commercial audience is something called the
Internet Explorer Mode. So something we heard
repeatedly from customers is that they would have
their end users actually using two different browsers
to do different things. So whether you’re accessing
kinda modern-day websites, you use one browser, and
then you wanted to go to a legacy site or app from
within your organization, you had to use something else. So what we did is we
actually created this IE Mode within the new Microsoft Edge, so that our end users would have access to both these legacy sites and apps and modern websites right
within the same window. They don’t have to leave. – That’s great. It sounds like a really thoughtful way to kinda help ease people in
the transition between the two. – It’s been really great so far. We’ve had a lotta great traction. – And then finally, if
an IT admin is ready to deploy the new browser,
what do they need to do next? – So IT admins can download
offline installers today from our commercial website. So that’s gonna be
microsoft.com/edge/business. And they can also download
policy files as well. Once they download,
they can set up a pilot within their organization,
so they can test it and configure it to their own environment and then eventually deploy
more broadly at scale. – Thanks so much, Eric, for
joining us on the show today. And congrats to you and your
team on this huge achievement. – Thank you so much. Go ahead and download. – Thanks for the insights, Vivian. So Eric also called out
another new Edge feature, multiple profiles, which lets
you toggle between your work and person profiles to help
keep your browsing separate, which is actually very helpful. – Yeah, it is very helpful, especially when you’re sharing
a computer with somebody. – Yes. – Keeping your profile, personal profile and your work profile separate. – Yeah.
– That’s pretty cool. And also in the interview, we talked about the new Bing search experience. With the new and improved
Microsoft Search, we’ll give you contextually
relevant results no matter where you are. Whether you’re in Edge,
Word, or even SharePoint, just click the search box and
instantly see answers and info from apps and people
that are relevant to you. – Oh, I kinda like that. (laughs) It knows me now. (both laughing) So we’re gonna shift over to
data residency in Switzerland. It’s a new year, and that
means a new data center region across the globe. Office 365 customers in Switzerland can now have their data stored
in an in-country data center. This provides our Swiss customers with trusted cloud services that help them meet local compliance and policy requirements. It will also help organizations with data residency requires
meet their obligations. So let’s move on to Microsoft
Online Services Terms. Earlier this month, we published our updated
Microsoft Online Services Terms, which outline more privacy transparency for our commercial cloud customers. These changes provide more transparency on data processing in the cloud and increases Microsoft’s data
protection responsibility. So as of today, the updated
terms are now available to all of our global commercial customers. And now it’s time to talk
about the end of an era, as in the end of support for Windows 7. – Oh, Windows 7. – Can you believe Windows
7 came out 10 years ago? – I can’t, no. – What were you doing? – So 10 years ago, I worked as a customer support
for a computer company. – Oh!
– And I would help people pull apart their hard drives and put new ones over the phone. It was kind of challenging actually. – Okay, I was doing
something way less cool. (both laughing) I was in my senior year musical (laughs) at school.
– Oh, wow. – So I have nothing cool to say (laughs) about that.
(Arthur laughing) – What musical did you do? – We were working on “Grease.” – Ooh, “Grease.” – Yeah, we also did “High
School Musical,” the musical. (both laughing) So that dates me, but–
– Yeah. (both laughing) – Let’s move on to what we’re doing to help customers with this transition. So we’re gonna throw it on over to Vivian to give us some more details. – I’m here with James,
and he’s a senior PMM who works on Windows
and Office deployment. And we’re gonna talk about end of support for Windows 7 today, which is the end of an era as we know it. So what does end of support
mean for our customers? – So end of support for Windows 7 means that if you have any technical
issues with Windows 7, you’ll no longer receive
any support on those. Additionally, Microsoft won’t be releasing any software updates
or any security updates or fixes for Windows 7. – What is Microsoft doing to help customers make the
transition to Windows 10? – Look, so while your Windows
7 device will still work, it is as at a greater risk
of malware and viruses. So what we recommend in
order to stay safe and secure is to move to Windows 10. And if you’re a customer
with over 150 licenses, you can use the FastTrack benefit, which will enable you to get
a Microsoft representative that will help you unblock any
of the issues that you have to move towards Windows 10. Additionally, we also have a
Desktop App Assure program. And that program helps customers with any application
compatibility concerns. So any app compat issues with Windows 10, with Office 365 ProPlus,
or Microsoft Edge, we can help unblock those
for in-house applications. – Those are some really great resources to help people get started. And for our customers
who are not quite ready to make that jump, what
options are available to them? – So for customers that
really want to move forward but haven’t quite made it there because they might be on their
journey, we offer two things. So firstly, we have the Windows
7 Extended Security Updates. So we will provide critical and important security fixes for Windows 7 as defined by our Microsoft
Security Response Center. And for those customers
that can take advantage of virtualization, we have
our Windows Virtual Desktop, which is Windows 7 running on Azure. And that’s really helpful for customers that potentially have legacy hardware, and they can take
advantage of virtualization that will enable them to get those Extended
Security Updates as well. – That’s great that we
have all bases covered in this transition period. Is there anything you want to add? – The only thing I would
say is that Office 2010 is going out of support on
the 13th of October 2020. So if you haven’t started
thinking about moving away from it, now is the time. – It’s good to always be looking ahead. Thanks so much for joining us today. – Thanks for having me. – Thanks, Vivian, and
that’s great reminder about Office 2010 reaching
end of support in October. This is something we’ll
cover more in detail later this year. So let’s move on to preview news next. For customers who work
in retail and use Teams, there’s a new push-to-talk experience that lets you deliver clear,
secure voice exchanges over the cloud. It basically turns the
smartphone or tablet that you use on the job into a legit walkie-talkie. There are some mobile devices that integrate with this feature directly. And if you have it, you can use your phone
just like a walkie-talkie. Walkie Talkie will be available
in private preview in Teams in the first half of this year. – I’m kind of excited to try that out. (both laughing) So we’ve already covered the new and improved search experience. But we’re also adding new features specifically for enterprises. With Microsoft Graph connectors, your organization can
index third-party data to appear in your
Microsoft Search results. These connectors expand
the type of content sources that search your Microsoft 365 apps and the broader Microsoft ecosystem. We’re also announcing capabilities to set up custom verticals,
add your own refiners, and use adaptive cards to
create your own visualization in office.com and SharePoint. And finally, we’ve enabled developers to use the SharePoint framework
to customize the appearance and develop applications
on top of Microsoft Search. – Also new for firstline workers in Teams, one-time SMS codes that
lets your team sign into all of their Microsoft
365 and custom apps in one go. And to compliment that, a shared device sign-out
lets your team sign out of all of their apps on
shared devices with one click. This helps keep your
customer data protected while making that sign
out experience a snap. These features will roll out
to customers later this year. – So one of the biggest challenges with providing digital
tools to firstline workers is managing their identities in apps. The new delegated user management feature in Teams lets firstline
managers approve password resets and allows employees to
use their cell phones for SMS sign-in through
single, customizable portal. And now that Azure AD’s
user provisioning integrates with SAP SuccessFactors,
it’s now easier to onboard and manage identities at
scale across any application. Finally, off-shift access
controls lets IT admins limit employee access to the Teams app on their personal devices
outside of working hours. So these updates will roll out
in the next couple of months. – Ever wish you can read captions during a live presentation? That’s exactly what PowerPoint
for the web wants to deliver. With Live Presentations,
this new inclusive experience lets audience members
turn on live captioning in 60 languages, navigate
between slides to catch details, or send reactions to the
presenter, all in real time. Live Presentations will be coming soon to PowerPoint for the web next month. And that’s the end of our show. – It’s already over for
the month of January. – Yeah, I was having so much fun. – (laughs) I am too. And I always love going
back to my coworkers and giving them the intel on everything. – Right? (both laughing) – But please be sure to like and subscribe and comment down below. We love reading your comments. – Yeah and ring for
bell for notifications. – Yes. And I guess we’ll see you next time. – We’ll see ya next time, bye. – Bye. (upbeat music) So now that you’ve watched this video, don’t forget to check out
the Microsoft 365 Blog that has a little more detail
about what we went over today.

Using the Microsoft Office Accessibility Checker


Using the Microsoft Office
Accessibility Checker. Microsoft Office’s
Accessibility Checker is a useful tool for verifying the
accessibility of your content. The Accessibility Checker can
point out common accessibility errors such as the absence
of alternative text or a missing header row in a table,
and the ideal time to use the Accessibility Checker is
after you’ve applied accessible design techniques to your content,
so it can help spot anything you may have missed! To run the Accessibility Checker,
select the File tab and from the Info menu item,
click Check for Issues… and select Check Accessibility. The Accessibility Checker will
open as a pane on the right side of the window. From here, the Checker will
either indicate that there are no accessibility issues,
or it will contain a list of issues and tips. In this example, the
Accessibility Checker is indicating that the presentation
has an image that still needs an alternative text and there’s a
slide with no title. Click on an issue to jump to it… and make the needed correction. [silence] It’s important to note that
the Accessibility Checker doesn’t read your content, it only
checks to see if certain accessibility considerations have been met. For example, in this Word document,
the font style in this paragraph is difficult to read, but the
Accessibility Checker does not notice this concern. It’s a useful tool, but vouching for the
accessibility of your content will be up to you by taking a
moment to manually review your file for accessibility considerations
before sharing it with your students. After you’ve corrected the
errors appearing in the Accessibility Checker, click the
X to close it, and save the file.
