Follow her @EllenvanAken This is yet another example of streamlining a process where incomplete information was given via various channels. What was the problem? One of our global brands was struggling with their packaging process. Being in the fast-moving consumer goods business, there were always many new products being introduced and many promotions going on at any given time.

    Azure Stream Analytics  which is currently in preview is a fully managed real-time stream analytics service that aims at providing highly resilient, low latency, and scalable complex event processing of streaming data for scenarios such as Internet of Things, command and control (of devices) and real-time Business Intelligence on streaming data. Although it might look similar to Amazon Kinesis, it seems to distinguish itself by aiming to increase developer productivity by enabling you to author streaming jobs using a SQL-like language to specify necessary transformations and it provides…

  • Azure AD - What’s the Difference Between Single vs. Multi-Tenant

    18 Dec 2014 | 10:26 am
    Hear people talk about single tenant or multi-tenant when they refer to Azure AD and get a bit confused? Let me see if I can help clear it up conceptually and then dive into it a little deeper. So what is the difference? When you create an app in you Azure AD tenant you have a toggle to say if the app is multi-tenant or not. When this is not enabled, or in single tenant mode, it means that only users who are in your Azure tenant's AD can login and use that app. However if you switch the toggle to enabled, then it is in multi-tenant mode. This means that anyone in any Azure tenant can login to…
  • FIX: NuGet, Visual Studio & Office 365 APIs - Unable to find version '1.0.22' of package 'Microsoft.Azure.ActiveDirectory.GraphClient'

  • Azure AD & ASP.NET MVC - Understanding ADAL & OWIN

    17 Dec 2014 | 8:59 am
    This post is part of a few other posts I’ve published this week about the authentication part of working with the Office 365 APIs. Specifically, the process of authenticating and obtaining an access token that you have to include on every request to the Office 365 APIs is tricky. Maybe the base process isn’t so hard for folks, but everything around it is confusing to some. So I’m sharing stuff I’ve picked up along the way. When calling the Office 365 APIs you have to pass along an OAuth2 access token in each request. You get this token from Azure AD by authenticating…

    17 Dec 2014 | 8:59 am
    In my last post, Azure AD & ASP.NET MVC - Understanding ADAL & OWIN, I talked a little about how the Azure AD Authentication Library (aka: ADAL) relates to the Open Web Interface for .NET (aka: OWIN). In this post I am going to walk you through creating an ASP.NET MVC application that leverages these to offload the authentication support to Azure AD for your web apps. This is the crux of how you must authenticate and obtain an OAuth 2.0 access token for use in the Office 365 APIs. Furthermore, I'm going to take advantage of the protocol OpenID Connect which Azure AD supports in…

  • How can I use InfoPath to get KPIs in my library?

    18 Nov 2014 | 1:03 pm
     This post is an extension of a previous post about creating and using Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in a SharePoint library, based on a calculated column. The follow-up question is, “Can I use InfoPath to set KPIs in SharePoint?” The answer is “Yes, but... it takes a little bit of work.”  The problem is that neither SharePoint nor InfoPath is set up to enable users to simply click a couple of buttons and make KPIs magically work. (Sometimes, a calculated column can be a better choice. Read about that solution here.)  We can work around this deficiency, though,…
  • The Best Way To Get A Correlation ID Error Out of Your ULS Logs

    One constant in the SharePoint world is that there are always multiple ways to do almost everything.  I can't recall the number of times I've heard someone in a meeting say "there's many ways we can skin that cat" when asked how to do something in SharePoint.  I'm not real well versed in cat skinning, but I get the point.I work with clients and customers all over the world.  It's interesting to see all the different ways and free tools used to figure out what that pesky correlation ID that popped up is trying to tell us.  There are definitely a lot of ways to skin that…

    Azure Event Hubs are an extension on the existing Azure Service Bus which provides hyper-scalable stream ingestion capabilities. It allows different producers (devices & sensors – possibly in the 10 thousands) to send continuous streams of data without interruption. There are a number of different scenario in which you typically see this kind of streaming data from different sensors such as future oriented scenarios such as connected cars, smart cities but also more common scenarios such as application telemetry or industrial automation.

  • Office 365 apps – deciding between the SharePoint app model and the Office 365 APIs

    Chris O'Brien
    16 Dec 2014 | 6:33 am
    Just like me, many other SharePoint developers have spent the last year or two getting to grips with the SharePoint app model – this was introduced in SharePoint 2013 as a way of building customizations which do NOT run on the SharePoint server. Enhancements built this way can run on a remote machine (e.g. Azure, IIS, whatever) and therefore any stability/performance issues do not affect core SharePoint. If you’re using Office 365 of course, the app model is a big cornerstone of extending the platform, since Microsoft do not allow custom SharePoint code to be deployed to the Office 365…

    With seven children in various parts of their educational journey, one could understand why I'd want to understand more about schools and what can be done to prevent failure. However, the truth is that reading Schools without Failure was triggered by a conversation with my friend Ben Gibson. We were exchanging emails about the idea of an integrated self-image and he suggested I look at Glasser's work. Candidly, when Ben recommends that I read something – I read it. He's been an educator his entire career. Currently on the school board in Bay City Michigan – where I attended high school…

Whether you share Eric's appreciation for alcohol or not, the comment is correct. Social isn't about microblogging, a new Facebook game, or technology – social is, at its heart, about people.

However for now, I'll share that in Bowling Alone much of the book is the research about how we as Americans are not joining and participating in clubs as much as we once were.

    Happy Holidays everyone. Daily will be taking a few days off and be back next year. See you then. -- Dooley Top News Stories5 signs Microsoft is serious about making Azure an enterprise hybrid cloud (InfoWorld)Of all the cloud players, Microsoft is one of the best positioned to create a hybrid cloud specifically for enterprises -- and scarcely a month goes by when it doesn't roll out a change for Azure to further that goal. Among the top cloud players, Microsoft has its roots deepest in the enterprise. (IBM, the other big player that comes to mind, has done relatively little hybrid…

    It’s been an extremely busy few weeks for me, and everyone at Microsoft, working on Office 365 developer extensibility. We made some very big announcements around: building Office everywhere, connecting to our APIs and building on an open platform. Personally for me, this was my first major launch. I joined weeks after the SharePoint Conference 2014, where our team made some other major announcements like the Office 365 APIs Preview. To summarize, the announcements this week are: Extend Office everywhere Extend My Apps page and pin to App Launcher Extend Outlook.com consumer (Preview)…
  • Top 10 tips for preparing for the shift to the SharePoint app model

    Jeremy Thake
    22 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
    Last weekend I went to Branson, MI for SharePointalooza which was organized by Mark Rackely and a bunch of very dedicated community members. I was then at SPTechCon Boston and the same questions came up. Essentially people are seeing all the messaging we are communicating from Redmond around the Office 365 Developer platform and wanting to know how they can prepare now where they are still on SharePoint Server 2007, 2010 and 2013. The biggest misconception was that the app model only worked in SharePoint Online on Office 365, mainly due to the messaging saying the “cloud app…

    I sat at work today, looking forward to watching the keynote by Tim Cook, CEO of Apple Inc.  I was very disappointed to  find out that it was blocked to all browsers except Safari…ie. to iOS and OSX. Apparently this isn’t a new stance. Now I have a MacBook Pro at home which I use all the time for my digital photo editing…but at work I’m running Windows 8. What was my experience trying to follow the announcements? I followed TechCrunch live blogging notes, which was actually surprisingly good.

  • Coming soon to C#: Expression-bodied members

    Gunnar
    19 Nov 2014 | 2:44 am
    New C# introduces expression-bodied members of classes. Instead of property or method that makes some simple calculation we can define expressions and keep our code shorter. Nice thing is – also other .NET languages are able to use these new members. Let’s see what we can do with expression-bodied members in C#. What is expression-bodied member? Expression-bodied member is member of class that is defined as expression. Something like this: public double X { get; set; } public double Y { get; set; }   public double Dist => Math.Sqrt(X * X + Y * Y); Expression-bodied members can…

    ASP.NET 5 supports code sharing between projects. It’s not about referencing libraries or something related to portable libraries – it’s different. Libraries can share their source that is compiled to referencing project output. In this posting I will show you how this new source sharing system works. Sample solution Suppose we have library project and we want to share source of some classes to application that refer to this library. Image on right illustrates the situation. AspNetMvc6.Common is the library where we want to share all C# files that are in Shared folder. The name of…

    Bjørn Furuknap
    6 Nov 2014 | 11:14 am
    From time to time, I’m approached by a SharePoint recruiter looking to get my help in hiring the perfect candidate for a position. You may be surprised to hear this, but finding and hiring the right candidate isn’t all that hard if you know what you’re doing. If you’re such a recruiter however, chances are high that you have no idea what you’re doing, so I’m going to point out some of the mistakes you make so you can fix them. It’s Not Low Hanging Fruit One reason why the market to recruit SharePoint people is hot is that SharePoint people are generally paid very well.

Currently if you’re using Windows 10 Tech Preview as your host operating system and if you’re trying to shut down a VMWare Workstation Virtual Machine you will crash Windows 10, and potentially corrupt your machine and virtual machines.

    This can be tested for both lists and document libraries, and the answer depends on various list settings (a term we use in a generic way that also includes document library settings). Possible list settings are: - Content approval setting: With or without content approval - Draft item security: Any user who can read items, Only users who can approve items, or Any user who can approve items (and the author of the item). Searching using the credentials of the author results in items in lists as well as document libraries that only require Read permissions (option "Any user who can read…

More about those limitations over here: http://sharepointdragons.com/2012/05/21/sputility-sendemail-limit/ However, we did want to use the SSOM to determine the SMTP server that should send the e-mail messages for us.

It can be found at http://www.electricplum.com/studio.aspx For the Windows Phone, you need to download the SDK at http://dev.windows.com/en-us/develop/download-phone-sdk , which uses Visual Studio (2012) and the presence of Hyper-V. This emulator itself can’t run on a virtual machine (although…

      <Silly blog article>   The .Net Framework includes a math library that includes a constant for PI. Just how much is PI?

      Update… it was announced! See here: http://blogs.office.com/2014/10/16/organize-office-365-new-app-launcher-2/   For me, it was unannounced. I missed the blog article. There was no mention of the change in the Office 365 Admin Center "Message Center". It just showed up in one of my subscriptions. Turns out it is also "mentioned" in the Office 365 Roadmap site, but with no links or any idea

      Sometimes we get so focused on the advanced features of .NET that we (or at least I) forget the basics. The basic in this case is checking to see if two arrays are equal.int[] a = { 1, 7, 4, 6, 2, 8, 2, 8, 4, 6, 2 }; int[] b = { 1, 7, 4, 6, 2, 8, 2, 8, 4, 6, 2 }; if (b == a) { Console.WriteLine("a Equals b!"); } else { Console.WriteLine("a NOT Equals b!"); } .csharpcode, .csharpcode

  • Cloud services: Shifting feature sets can confuse users

    Chris Wright
    12 Dec 2014 | 7:25 am
    One of the great things about the web and web services is they never stand still. Take Facebook, or LinkedIn. Both are Cloud services that you login to and access from any browser. Both are complex platforms that offer a wealth of functionality and features. Both are also constantly being updated. Facebook recently improved its search feature, and LinkedIn has a Engineering blog where you can find the latest platform developments. Both of these services are free so a slightly fluid, but generally improving, feature set is something most users just accept. But in the Enterprise environment,…

    So is Dropbox for Business secure? Checking the headlines this morning I see a couple of stories announcing that hackers have got hold of millions of Dropbox user account details. In the fairness of balance I also see a blog post from Dropbox themselves to say categorically they have not been hacked. So what is going on? In short it would seem Dropbox hasn’t been hacked, their blog post is accurate. What has happened is hackers have got hold of usernames and passwords from another service (Adobe was recently hacked, resulting in 38 million users details being leaked) and these details…

    I have often been asked; “Hey Geoff, what points do I need to take into consideration whilst creating a SharePoint platform service”? Configuration Management is the answer – “the combination of technical documentation, product pack information, user rules, continuity planning; – which helps create platform policies, platform change management rules and helps sustain the platform in its lifecycle”. In ‘creating’ a SharePoint platform service, and I am purposefully ignoring high level ‘so called’ business points, no-one in the right…

Downtime leads to increased overhead costs, lost productivity, lost customer satisfaction and lost revenue. This hits business users of course, but also those who are there to support the business. Small business users are especially hit by this since they are completely dependent upon the technology.
