I recently had the pleasure to speak with Julia White, General Manager of the Office Division at Microsoft at the Microsoft TechEd 2014 North America conference that was held in Houston a few weeks ago. Over at SharePoint Pro, a sister site to SQL Server Pro, Julia provided her insights on Microsoft’s overall collaboration strategy for Office 365, SharePoint, and Yammer. Notably, she also provided her thoughts on Power BI, which should be of interest to our SQL Server Pro readers.

White had recently noted that business intelligence and big data analytics weren’t “in the hands of data wonks anymore.” We asked White to expand on this concept, and she stated that with offerings such as OneDrive for Business or Yammer, collaboration is “brain dead easy for even the least sophisticated user.” She elaborated that there’s “massive compute power and storage to tap into” for Power BI or OneDrive for Business. Additionally, White emphasized that it becomes simple and easy to create meaningful user experiences once an individual doesn’t have to figure out how different pieces of the puzzle (i.e., servers and clients) works together.

On Tuesday 18th April, Prime Minister Theresa May called a snap general election for 8th June, taking the nation by surprise. Rather than waiting until 2020, voters will now be casting their ballots in a matter of weeks.
