Introduction to Microsoft Teams for government with a “ask me anything” | BRK3260


>>>HELLO, EVERYONE. WELCOME. LAST DAY OF THE SESSION. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR COMING. THIS IS AWESOME. YOU SURVIVED THIS WEEK, BARELY. >>BARELY.>>YEAH, ME, TOO. SO WELCOME TO AN INTRODUCTION TO MICROSOFT TEAMS FOR U. S. GOVERNMENT. JUST U. S. GOVERNMENT FOLKS. I HAVE MY AWESOME COLLEAGUE HERE, SANKALP. WE’LL HOPEFULLY TAKE YOU THROUGH AN INTERESTING JOURNEY TODAY. SO I HAVE A FAVORITE QUOTE WHICH IS BE YOURSELF, EVERYBODY ELSE IS TAKEN. I TRY TO LIVE LIFE AS AUTHENTICALLY AS POSSIBLE. A LOT OF PEOPLE MET ME THROUGHOUT THE WEEK, AND I’M PRETTY HONEST, RIGHT? I LIVE IN D. C. IF ANYBODY WANTS TO SHARE A CAB TO THE AIRPORT AFTERWARDS, I’M ALSO GAME. AND LEVI, THE GOLDEN DOODLE IS THERE, HE HEARS GCC, I THINK HE IS TRIGGERED BY THOSE WORDS NOW. IF YOU WANT TO FOLLOW ME ON LINKEDIN, MAKE SURE YOU CAPTURE THAT CODE, FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER. I TWEET A LOT ABOUT USGOV.>>HI, EVERYBODY. THIS IS ME, SANKALP. MY FAVORITE CODE, SOME FIND IT GRIM, I GREW UP IN INDIA AND CAME TO THE U. S. FOR MY MBA AT UCLA, JUST GRADUATED THIS YEAR. EXCITED TO JOIN MICROSOFT. THANK YOU. YOU CAN FOLLOW ME AS WELL. WHILE IN L. A., I GOT THE CHANCE TO BE A RESEARCHER FOR LOS ANGELES COUNTY, GOT MY FIRST TASTE AND FLAVOR FOR HOW IT WORKS.>> OKAY. SO I’VE HAD A LONG HISTORY IN GOV. I GRADUATED COLLEGE IN 2005, MY FIRST JOB WAS AT A DEFENSE CONTRACTOR, SUPPORTING A VERY LARGE AGENCY, NOT GOING TO SAY WHO, BUT THAT WAS KIND OF MY FIRST EXPERIENCE. I STARTED IN SHARE POINT, FOUR YEARS AFTER THAT, I WORKED AT ANOTHER VERY WELL KNOWN HOUSE THAT LOOKS VERY WHITE IN D. C., I WAS THERE ABOUT SIX AND A HALF YEARS, GOT A REALLY INTERESTING UNDERSTANDING HOW GOVERNMENT IS MANAGED FROM THE TOP DOWN. AND THEN I JOINED MICROSOFT IN 2015. I WAS IN CONSULTING SERVICES IN SHARE POINT, BUT I STILL WORKED WITH GOV. AND I UNDERSTOOD AT THAT POINT, MY JOB WAS ABOUT BRINGING LARGE AGENCIES INTO THE CLOUD, THE CLOUD WAS NEW AT THAT POINT FOR GOV, I UNDERSTAND THE FRUSTRATIONS AND PAIN AND FELT THAT, TOO. I WAS HONORED AND HIRED BY TEAMS ENGINEERING, AND I MADE A PROMISE TO MYSELF, I SAID I’M GOING TO ANSWER MY OLD SELF, MEANING I WANT TO REMEMBER THE FRUSTRATIONS I HAD, THE FRUSTRATIONS MY CUSTOMER HAD, AND MAKE SURE I’M RESPONDING TO WHAT I FELT BACK THEN AND NOT TO FORGET THAT. I FEEL A LOT OF PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE CONFERENCE THAT
WE TALKED TO FEEL FRUSTRATED AND THAT’S OKAY, AND WE GET THAT AND WANT TO HELP WITH THAT THROUGHOUT THE SESSION. HOW MANY PEOPLE LOVE HEARING ABOUT BUSINESS OUTCOMES? GREAT. WITH ALL OF THE MARKETING MATERIAL, BUSINESS OUTCOMES, A LOT OF IT DOES APPLY, WITH GOV IT DOESN’T IN THE SENSE THAT GOV IS NOT ABOUT PROFIT, MEETING A BOTTOM LINE, IT IS REALLY ABOUT THE MISSION. WHAT I DEFINE MISSION IS IN SERVICE OF OTHERS, RIGHT? THAT’S VERY IMPORTANT IN OUR MESSAGING. SO SANKALP AND I HAVE BEEN TRYING TO ADHERE TO THAT. I AM GOING TO DO A CLASSROOM EXERCISE. BEFORE WE DO THIS, I’M GOING TO SHARE A QUICK STORY. SO I WENT TO MEET WITH A VERY LARGE MILITARY ORGANIZATION. AND IN THE ROOM WAS A WHOLE BUNCH OF COLONELS, RETIRED MILITARY PERSONNEL, AND WE WENT AROUND THE ROOM, I SAID HEY, DO YOU MIND INTRODUCING YOURSELF, I WOULD LIKE TO UNDERSTAND YOUR BACKGROUND AND IF YOU SERVED. SO THEY DID. AND EACH ONE OF THEM HAD SERVED IN THE MILITARY. I WAS LAST TO GO. AND I SAID HEY, LISTEN, I FEEL LIKE THE ODD BALL IN THE ROOM, I NEVER SERVED. I DON’T THINK I WOULD HAVE SURVIVED BOOT CAMP. I DID A LOT OF GOVERNMENT WORK. THE PERSON NEXT TO ME WAS 25 YEARS RETIRED MILITARY. YOU SERVED IN YOUR OWN WAY, TOO, EVEN THOUGH YOU HAVEN’T BEEN IN THE MILITARY, YOU SERVED TO HELP THE U. S. GOVERNMENT AND YOU SHOULD BE THANKFUL FOR THAT. THAT WAS AN EYE OPENING MOMENT FOR ME. I WANT EVERYBODY TO STAND UP IF POSSIBLE AND I WANT YOU TO LOOK AT YOUR NEIGHBOR, SHAKE THEIR HAND, TELL THEM THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE. >>THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE.>> THANK YOU. THANK YOU.>>AWESOME. HOW MANY PEOPLE HEAR THAT? DOES THAT RESONATE? EVEN THOUGH STATE, LOCAL, FEDERAL, LOCAL, IT DOESN’T MATTER. WE ARE PROVIDING A SERVICE TO THE NATION AND WE SHOULD ALL BE PROUD OF THAT. I’M GOING TO GIVE A ROUND OF APPLAUSE FOR EVERYBODY HERE. THANK YOU. SO HERE’S THE AGENDA. WE’RE GOING THROUGH THE OVERVIEW, WHERE MICROSOFT TEAMS LIFT IN U. S. GOVERNMENT TODAY. WE’RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME, SERVICE ADOPTION, THE TOP REASONS DEPLOYMENTS SUCCEED, TOUCH ON ROAD MAP AND TALK ABOUT WHAT YOU CAN DO NOW, AND FINALLY THE AMA. WE’LL GET ALL OF YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED. DO YOU WANT TO TAKE THIS ONE?>> SURE. RIGHT NOW THERE ARE FIVE GENERATIONS WORKING TOGETHER IN THE U. S. GOVERNMENT AND WE KNOW THAT THESE GENERATIONS LIKE TO WORK VERY DIFFERENTLY, THE TOOLS THEY USE DIFFER FROM EACH OTHER, RIGHT, AND THEIR STYLE OF WORK IS VERY DIFFERENT, TOO. SO IT IS IMPORTANT TO KEEP IN MIND THE VARIOUS BACKGROUNDS PEOPLE COME FROM AND THE REFERENCES WHEN WE DO TEAMWORK. TEAM BASE AND COLLABORATING, THAT’S THE NEXT THING. 80 OF EMPLOYEE TIME IS SPENT COLLABORATING WITH OTHERS. PEOPLE ARE PART OF SO MANY TEAMS THAT THEY WORK WITH, SOMETIMES PART OF TEAMS THAT THEY’RE JUST TOUCHING AND NEED TO KNOW THINGS ON AN FYI BASIS, PEOPLE ARE SPENDING A LOT OF TIME COLLABORATING. WORK SPACE IS CHANGING, RIGHT? 49 OF FEDERAL GOVERNMENT WORKERS ARE ELIGIBLE FOR WORK TODAY. WHAT THAT MEANS IS THEY’RE ELIGIBLE TO WORK REMOTELY AND NEED THE RIGHT TOOLS TO BE ABLE TO DO THAT.>>THAT CODE, I DID A LOT OF DIGGING AND RESEARCH, THAT’S FROM OPM 2018 REPORT TO CONGRESS. PRETTY AWESOME STUFF, RIGHT? ALL RIGHT. SO WE’VE GOT THREE OFFERINGS. SANKALP IS REALLY FAMILIAR WITH THIS. HE DID A DEEP DIVE ON THIS LAST YEAR.>>RIGHT. I DID A DEEP DIVE ON THE ACRONYMS TO UNDERSTAND WHY ARE WE DEALING WITH SO MANY DEFINITIONS, AND DEALING WITH THREE, GCC, GCC HIGH, AND DOD. I HEAR PEOPLE SAY WHY AM I GCC OR GCC HIGH. THE ROAD MAP AND PEOPLE ARE WONDERING WHY IS THIS. THE IMPORTANT THING IS WHEN YOU WORK IN THE GOVERNMENT, YOU DEAL WITH DIFFERENT KIND OF SENSITIVITY OF INFORMATION. AND DEPENDING WHAT KIND OF INFORMATION YOU’RE DEALING WITH, THE ARMOR YOU NEED TO SAFEGUARD INFORMATION IS DIFFERENT. ONCE YOU IDENTIFY WHAT LEVEL OF SECURITY AND WHAT LEVEL OF SAFETY YOU NEED FOR THAT INFORMATION, YOU CAN GO THE NEXT STEP AND DECIDE WHICH ENVIRONMENT IS RIGHT FOR YOU. THEY’RE BUILT DIFFERENTLY TO HANDLE DIFFERENT SENSITIVITIES OF DATA. ONE THING IS COMMON, MICROSOFT ON CONTRACTUAL BASIS, UNITED STATES STORAGE OF DATA, YOU CAN BE SURE DATA IS IN THE U. S. AND IN TRANSIT. THIS SEEMS TO BE A SIMPLE CONTRACT, BUT REQUIRES A COMMITMENT. NOT EVERYBODY PROMISES THAT, SO MICROSOFT DOESN’T DISCRIMINATE ACROSS THREE CLOUDS. YOU REFER TO GCC, WE CAN DO — THE LIST OF ACRONYMS GOES ON. HOW I WANT TO CONTRAST IS SUPPOSE YOU WORK WITH EXPORT CONTROL INFORMATION. IT BECOMES IMPERATIVE, ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIALLY YOU’RE IN GCC HIGH. WE ONLY PROMISE CONTRACTUAL COMMITMENT TO GCC HIGH. THERE ARE CRIMINAL PENALTIES. IF YOU HAVE SHADOW ID IN THE ORGANIZATION, PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT STUFF THEY SHOULDN’T BE TALKING ABOUT, THAT EXPOSES YOU TO CRIMINAL PENALTIES AND JAIL TIME AS WELL. SO IT BECOMES REALLY IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND THESE ARE NOT JUST ACRONYMS, THINK OF THEM AS YOUR ARMOR. IT IS IMPORTANT TO HAVE THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF ARMOR ON TOP OF DATA.>>I LIKE THAT. THAT WAS VERY INTENSE. I DID NOT KNOW THAT.>> I HAVE TEAMS ACROSS MULTIPLE PLATFORMS AND MULTIPLE DEVICES. THIS IS GREAT. IN GOVERNMENT YOU CAN USE ALL THESE DEVICES TODAY, SO EVEN IN DOD, ESSENTIALLY WE HAVE THE DUST OFF CLIENT, MOBILE CLIENT, USE TEAMS IN THE BROWSER, AND OBVIOUSLY IT IS AVAILABLE ON MAC AND WINDOWS. AND IPHONE AS WELL. AND THESE ARE THE BROWSERS WE SUPPORT. EDGE, EDGE CHROME AND FIRE FOX. >>I WANT TO ADD ON TOP OF THAT, WE TALK ABOUT THOSE ACRONYMS, THAT IS THE MAGIC. BECAUSE WE ADHERE TO THOSE STANDARDS, WE’RE ABLE TO BRING INFORMATION ACROSS A PLETHORA OF DEVICES. THAT’S REALLY ESSENTIAL, FIGURING OUT THE RIGHT — SO YOU CAN ENABLE THE RIGHT TOOLS THAT EMPOWER YOUR EMPLOYEES.>>SO WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME, RIGHT? IT IS ALL ABOUT ME, RIGHT? NO? ALL RIGHT. SO THE VALUE OF MICROSOFT TEAMS. THIS IS REALLY IMPORTANT, FROM A FORESTER REPORT. TEAMS CAN SEE FOUR HOURS A WEEK OF ESTIMATED TIME SAVED BY INFORMATION WORKERS, WORKING WITH EACH OTHER. 17. 7 IMPROVEMENT OF TIME TO DECISION BY DECISION MAKERS, THINK OF CIOS, DEPUTY CIOS, POLICY LEADERSHIP, DIRECTORS OF OFFICES. HUGE TIME SAVINGS. THEN THERE’S AN 18. 9 REDUCTION IN MEETINGS EACH WEEK. MEETINGS IS A HUGE PART OF GOVERNMENT BECAUSE WE ALL HAVE TO COME TOGETHER TO MAKE DECISIONS TO GET THINGS DONE. MEETINGS IS A PIECE IF YOU HAD MORE TIME IN THE DAY OR SAVE TIME IN MEETINGS, THAT’S IMPACTFUL TO HAVE WORK LIFE BALANCE OR SEE THE WORK LIFE IN GENERAL. TEAMS IS THE FASTEST GROWING APP IN MICROSOFT HISTORY. I KNOW THIS IS AN INTERESTING SIDE. A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE LIKE THAT’S NOT POSSIBLE. IT IS TRUE. THESE DATA POINTS ARE FOR GCC. DON’T PUBLISH DATA POINTS FOR GCC HIGH OR DOD. THERE ARE ACTIVELY 2700 TENANTS IN GCC TODAY USING TEAMS WHICH IS AWESOME. AND THESE NUMBERS GO UP, THIS MIGHT BE A LITTLE LOW AS OF TODAY. 59 FEDERAL AGENCIES. 376 COUNTY, 400 CITIES, AND 617 LOCAL AGENCIES. IT IS A LOT. SO SERVICE ADOPTION. I KNOW A LOT OF FOLKS HAVE SEEN SOME OF CARAWANA, SHE’S AWESOME. SHE’S CHAMPION OF THE NEW IDEA OF SERVICE ADOPTION. WE’LL TALK MORE ABOUT HOW YOU GET SOME RESOURCES, TAKE THOSE HOME WITH YOU. BUT LET’S TALK ABOUT THE CHANGE PERSPECTIVE IN GOV. MOST EMPLOYEES ARE NOT WILLING TO USE NEW TECHNOLOGY ROLLED OUT BY THEIR ORGANIZATION. HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE FELT THAT PAIN? RIGHT. OKAY. YEAH. HERE’S AN INTERESTING STORY. SO I WAS WORKING AT A LARGE GOVERNMENT AGENCY THAT HAD A LOT OF LAWYERS AND THESE LAWYERS MAY OR MAY NOT HAVE SUED MICROSOFT IN THE ’90S. SO I SHOWED UP WITH TEAMMATES, THEY’RE LIKE YOU’RE COOL WORKING HERE, YEAH, IT IS COOL. THAT HAPPENED BACK THEN. WE’RE GOOD NOW. AND I WAS TAKING NOTES AND THE PERSON WAS TALKING AND I HAD SPELLED A WORD, AND IT DIDN’T CATCH THE MISSPELLING. I SAID PERSECUTORS INSTEAD OF PROSECUTORS. I SHARED NOTES WITH THE PERSON THAT WE WERE HAVING A MEETING WITH, HE SAID RIMA, WE’RE STOPPING PERSECUTORS FIVE YEARS AGO. I WAS LIKE SIR, MY APOLOGIES. BUT IT BROUGHT DOWN THE WALL. WHAT’S INTERESTING, HE SAID HERE’S THE DEAL. YOU COME IN HERE, TELL US ABOUT NEW TECHNOLOGY, BUT IT HAS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE, IMPROVE THE WAY WE WORK, WE HAVE TO WANT TO MOVE TO IT. IT HAS TO BE EASY. WE DON’T HAVE TIME TO LEARN ALL OF THIS TECHNOLOGY. AND HE’S ABSOLUTELY RIGHT. I’M NOT A LAWYER, I DON’T SPECIALIZE IN LAW OR HAVE A LAW DEGREE. HE’S INTELLIGENT AND SMART IN WHAT HE DOES, AND I SHOULDN’T PUT THE EXPECTATION HE SHOULD LEARN IT. KEEP THAT IN PERSPECTIVE WHEN WE TALK ABOUT TEAMS. THE OTHER THING TO THINK ABOUT, WHEN THE CEO OR CIO IS FAIRLY OR VERY VISIBLE, THE TRANSFORMATION PROJECT OF DEPLOYING TEAMS IS EITHER SUCCESSFUL OR VERY SUCCESSFUL. WE HAVE AN EXAMPLE, RECENTLY WE HAD A LARGE MILITARY ORGANIZATION THAT HAD A VERY VISIBLE CIO THAT SAID HEY, I REALLY NEED TEAMS IN MY WORKPLACE, I CAN’T USE SLACK, IT IS NOT COMPLIANT. BUT I WOULD LIKE TO USE TEAMS. BECAUSE HE WAS VERY VOCAL ABOUT THAT, ESSENTIALLY THERE WAS A QUICK ADOPTION OF TEAMS AND THEY’RE GROWING BY THOUSANDS OF USERS EVERY SINGLE DAY. AND I THINK THAT WAS PIVOTAL TO HAVE THAT VOICE TO SAY THIS IS PART OF OUR STRATEGIC MOVE TOWARDS BEING MORE RESPONSIVE TO THE FOLKS THAT ARE IN THE MILITARY AND TO KEEP RETENTION, TOO. THAT WAS THE THING HE MENTIONED, THAT THEY HAVE A READINESS INITIATIVE TO MAKE SURE THEY RETAIN THE YOUNG MILITARY PERSONNEL THEY HAVE TODAY WITH GIVING THEM THE BEST OF SUITE ON BEST OF CLASS TOOLS. SO THE FINAL THING IS LEARNING FROM CO-WORKERS IS AMONG THE MOST EFFECTIVE AND USED METHODOLOGY TO LEARN NEW TECHNOLOGY. SO I TOOK OFF THE MICROSOFT HAT. HONESTLY, WHEN I FIRST STARTED USING TEAMS AT MICROSOFT, I HAD A LEADER THAT WROTE ME IN. HE WAS LIKE I’M DOING THIS, YOU HAVE TO DO IT. I’M LIKE OKAY. HE WAS A COLLEAGUE OF MINE. I FELT COMPELLED TO USE TEAMS. IF LET’S SAY SOMEBODY FROM YOUR ORGANIZATION COMES IN, LIKE A MICROSOFT COMES INTO THE ORGANIZATION, RIGHT, AND SAYS HEY, YOU HAVE TO USE TEAMS, IS THAT SOMETHING THAT YOU’RE GOING TO PROBABLY RESPOND TO? NO. IF A COLLEAGUE SAYS LET’S USE TEAMS TOGETHER, THAT’S A LITTLE MORE APPEALING. RIGHT? THINK ABOUT THAT. MAKE SURE YOU EMPOWER ALL USERS SO THEY LEARN FROM EACH OTHER AND HAVE THE RIGHT INFORMATION AT THEIR FINGERTIPS, THEN ADOPTION WILL GO A LOT FASTER. SO THE SUCCESSFUL ADOPTION OF ANY SERVICE REPRESENTS A CHANGE IN BEHAVIOR, DELIVERING MORE THAN A SET OF PRODUCTS, YOU’RE CREATING A FUNDAMENTALLY DIFFERENT WAY OF WORKING. THIS CHANGE IS ABOUT PEOPLE AND MORE IMPORTANTLY ABOUT THE MISSION. NO PRESSURE. BUT ALL OF YOU IN THIS ROOM TODAY ARE TRANSFORMING THE WAY GOVERNMENT COLLABORATES WITH ONE ANOTHER AND WITHIN EACH OTHER. THAT IS HUGE. HUGE. GIVE YOURSELVES A PAT ON THE BACK BECAUSE THAT’S AWESOME. THAT’S WHAT KEEPS ME GOING. I FEEL LIKE I CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN TERMS OF HELPING THE WAY WE ALL COLLABORATE WITH ONE ANOTHER. SO WE JUST RELEASED A NEW BOOK, TEAMS FOR U. S. GOVERNMENT DOD FOOT BOOK. IT HAS A CURETTED SET OF RESOURCES THAT PERTAIN TO GOV IN ALL THREE CLOUDS, NOT JUST GCC, IT INCLUDES GCC, GCC HIGH AND DOD. IF YOU WANT TRAINING, THAT’S IN THERE AS WELL. PART OF THE REASON WE DIDN’T GO OVER TEAMS TODAY, I THINK WE GOT FEEDBACK.>>WE WERE THINKING ABOUT COVERING FEATURES AND USE CASES BUT OVER THE PAST FEW DAYS GOT FEEDBACK THAT WE’RE STARTING USING TEAMS, KNOW HOW TO WORK WITH IT, LET’S GO MORE IN DEPTH HOW DO WE ACCELERATE ADOPTION AND UNLOCK DEPLOYMENT WITHIN OUR ORGANIZATIONS. SO WE DECIDED TO SKIP OVER USE CASES AND FEATURES THAT WE WERE THINKING OF COVERING AND DECIDED LET’S GO INTO THE WEEDS AND TALK ABOUT WHAT YOU ARE WANTING TO LISTEN TO, RIGHT?>>YEAH. AND THAT’S ABSOLUTELY TRUE. WE WERE WORKING ON SLIDES EVEN UP TO THE LAST MINUTE, BASED ON EVERYTHING WE HEARD, WE WERE TRYING TO MAKE SURE THAT WE WERE LISTENING TO WHAT YOU NEEDED, TO MAKE SURE WE ANSWERED SOME OF THE QUESTIONS, RIGHT? IF YOU ARE WORKING FOR AN INTRO, MAKE SURE YOU CHECK THIS OUT. WE HAVE A LOT OF RESOURCES IN THERE. THERE’S ANOTHER LINK I’LL SHOW YOU, TOO. THE OTHER THING I WANT TO MENTION, YOU CAN BECOME A SERVICE ADOPTION SPECIALIST FOR FREE. IT IS AWESOME. THIS TALKS ABOUT HOW YOU BECOME A SERVICE ADOPTION SPECIALIST SPECIFIC TO TEAMS, RIGHT? AND IT IS FREE. SO THERE’S NO PAYMENT IN THERE, YOU GET A CERTIFICATE AT THE END, IT IS AWESOME. WE’VE GOT THAT INSTRUCTOR TRAINING. SEE IF I CAN PUT THAT THERE, YOU SEE TEAMS FOR U. S. GOVERNMENT THERE. I KNOW IT SAYS GCC. FOLKS IN HIGH AND DOD ARE BUMMER. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING THAT’S MORE TAILORED OR FOCUSED, YOU CAN REACH OUT TO YOUR MICROSOFT ACCOUNT TEAM, BUT IF THIS IS — THIS HITS NINE OUT OF TEN BELLS AND WHISTLES, YOU CAN ATTEND THE GCC TRAINING. SO THAT’S DEMOED OUT OF A GCC TENANT. YOU DON’T SEE ANYTHING EXTRA THAT’S IN COMMERCIAL. SO IT IS A REAL TRAINING. AND LIVE TOO.>>RIMA, WEREN’T YOU SAYING YOU FOUND OTHER STUFF USEFUL AS WELL?>>THAT’S A GREAT POINT. IN GCC WE’VE GOTTEN CLOSE TO FUTURE PARODY WHEN IT COMES TO MEETINGS AND CALLING, TOO. I THINK 99 OF THE WAY THERE. A LOT OF OTHER TRAININGS ARE GOING TO APPLY TO GCC AS WELL. SO CHECK THEM OUT FOR SURE.>>SO WE HAVE A PUBLIC ROAD MAP THAT YOU CAN GO TO, GCC AND GCC HIGH AND DOD. YOU CAN GO TO THIS LINK THAT RIMA CREATED THAT FILTERS DOWN TO STUFF THAT’S RELEVANT FOR YOUR ENVIRONMENT. WE WANT TO CHANGE THAT GOING FORWARD. THE PROCESS FOR THAT HAS BEEN — WE STARTED TO ALIGN THE STAKEHOLDERS. GOING FORWARD, SHOULD SEE A LOT MORE DETAIL AS WELL AS USEFUL INFORMATION IF YOU GO TO THIS ROAD MAP. GOOD THINGS ARE COMING ON HERE.>>DON’T MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID WHEN I FIRST STARTED WORKING WITH TEAMS YEARS AGO. I THOUGHT I AM IN GOVERNMENT, THIS DOESN’T APPLY TO ME, I’M GOING TO IGNORE IT. THAT WAS MY OWN MISTAKE. I LIKE SHOWING MY FAILURES. I FEEL LIKE HOPEFULLY IT WILL HELP OTHER PEOPLE AVOID THEM. BE SURE TO LOOK AT THE SITE. 95 WILL APPLY TO ALL U. S. GOV. PAY ATTENTION TO THIS. IT IS BEEFY. USE SOME SEARCH ENGINE BEHIND IT IF LOOKING FOR SOMETHING SPECIFIC. IT’S JUST A GREAT WEALTH OF DOCUMENTATION, ENGINEERING UPDATES THIS ON A REGULAR BASIS. THIS IS THE VOICE OF ENGINEERING. MAKE SURE YOU TAKE A GANDER. SO TOP REASONS WHY TEAMS DEPLOYMENTS ARE SUCCESSFUL IN GOV. PART OF MY ROLE IN TEAMS ENGINEERING IS TO BE YOUR ADVOCATE, BE THE VOICE OF THE CUSTOMER. EVERY GOV CUSTOMER IN MY MIND IS A STRATEGIC CUSTOMER. I TEND NOT TO DIFFERENTIATE. SINCE I DEALT WITH HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF ORGANIZATIONS, AGENCIES AND MILITARY BRANCHES, I LEARNED A LOT OF WHAT WORKS AND DOESN’T WORK. MY UNIQUE VALUE IS THAT I HAVE THIS INTERESTING BIRD’S EYE VIEW OF ALL OF WHAT ARE THE AGENCIES DOING, CAN SHARE INSIGHT TO SAY THIS WORKS AND THIS DOESN’T WORK, RIGHT? AND I LEARNED A LOT THROUGH THE PROCESS AS WELL. THERE ARE THINGS THAT HAPPENED THAT I NEVER WOULD HAVE PREDICTED TO HAPPEN. HERE ARE THE TOP REASONS. THERE’S A LOT MORE. THESE ARE THE BIG ONES. SO THE AGENCY’S MISSION WAS TIED TO THE NEED OR USE OF TEAMS. IT GOES IN AND SAYS WE WANT TO USE TEAMS TO CREATE A KNOWLEDGE BASE OR SORT THROUGH HELP DESK TICKETS. THAT’S GREAT, BUT ON IT WE’RE USING TEAMS. HAVING A MESSAGE TO SAY TEAMS WILL HELP WITH THIS MISSION, FOR EXAMPLE, IF YOU ARE SOMEBODY THAT MANAGES PARKS OR SOME OF OUR LANDS THAT WE HAVE IN THE UNITED STATES, HINT HINT, TYING TEAMS TO SAY MAYBE WE CAN ENABLE SOME WORKERS THAT ARE OUTSIDE MAYBE MANAGING SOME OF THE PARKS, THAT WOULD HELP THEM, POTENTIALLY USING TEAMS TO HELP WRITE POLICY, COLLABORATING FASTER. WHEN I WORKED AT THAT HOUSE THAT WAS REALLY WHITE, WE HAD TO WRITE POLICY QUICKLY, RIGHT? I HAD TO EMPOWER EMPLOYEES TO WRITE POLICIES QUICKLY. THE PRESIDENT WOULD WANT SOMETHING FIVE MINUTES AGO, NOT FIVE MINUTES LATER, RIGHT? SO HOWEVER WE CAN EMPOWER THEM WITH THE TOOLS TO GET THEIR JOB DONE QUICKER, FASTER, EASIER, IS THE GAME CHANGER, RIGHT? SO IF YOUR MISSION OR ORGANIZATION IS WRITING POLICY OR HELPING PROTECT OUR NATION IN TERMS OF LAW ENFORCEMENT, MAKE SURE THAT TEAMS OUTWARDLY MATCHES TO THAT MISSION WHEN YOU COMMUNICATE. ANOTHER THING THAT WAS INTERESTED, HAVING ALL USERS LNED DAY ONE OF THE PILOT. IT CAN BE DONE. I SWEAR. THEY’RE GETTING FRUSTRATED, SAYING WE CAN’T CHAT WITH OTHER PEOPLE THAT AREN’T LICENSED, GET A KICKBACK, WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO CHAT WITH THEM. SO EVEN THOUGH YOU DON’T RELEASE THE TEAM’S CLIENT ON DAY ONE, JUST LICENSING ALL OF THE USERS WILLFULLY TEST TEAMS TO UNDERSTAND WHAT IT CAN AND CANNOT DO. MAKE SURE ALSO THAT YOUR PILOT USES WORKERS OR INFORMATION WORKERS, PEOPLE THAT ARE ALL AROUND THE ORGANIZATION THAT HAVE A REASON TO WORK TOGETHER ON A DAILY BASIS, SO A LOT OF TIMES MY PREVIOUS JOBS WHENEVER WE WERE TESTING SOMETHING, WE WOULD ONLY DO IT IN IT, WE THOUGHT END USERS WOULDN’T BE ABLE TO FULLY TEST IT. YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED HOW MANY THINGS PEOPLE WOULD FIND, AND THE INTERESTING THING ABOUT TEAMS IS TO FULLY TEST IT, YOU HAVE TO MAKE SURE PEOPLE HAVE A REASON TO COLLABORATE WITH ONE ANOTHER. THAT WAY WE CAN GET THEIR FEET WET. THE OTHER THING IS ADOPTION ACTIVITIES ARE ALIGNED TO THE IT PROJECT PLAN. MAKE SURE ADOPTION ISN’T AN AFTERTHOUGHT. DON’T DO ADOPTION AFTER YOU DEPLOYED IT, THEN IT WILL BE TOO LATE. USE ON BOARDING LEARNING TEAM WITH WILLING ADMISSIONS. I WENT TO PENN STATE, APPLIED EARLY. THIS WAS MANY, MANY YEARS AGO, AND ESSENTIALLY I GOT ACCEPTED EARLY BECAUSE I APPLIED EARLY. PENN STATE HAD SOMETHING CALLED ROLLING ADMISSIONS, PEOPLE COULD COME IN AS THEY MET THE REQUIREMENT. THE OTHER THING THAT’S IMPORTANT ABOUT THIS IS WE DON’T HAVE YAMMER. YAMMER IS NOT COMING. WE NEED A PLACE TO BUILD A COMMUNITY, AND THIS IS A GREAT PLACE TO DO IT. THIS DOESN’T JUST HAVE TO BE TEAMS, IT CAN BE WHIPPED INDOWS, 365, A PLACE FOR END USERS TO GET TOGETHER AND MEET AND DISCUSS WHAT’S GOING ON. I STARTED A COMMUNITY INTERNALLY WITHIN MICROSOFT TO START ANSWERING SOME OF THE QUESTIONS. REMEMBER, I WAS ANSWERING MY OLD SELF. WHEN I STARTED AT COMMUNITY, AT FIRST I WAS INVOLVED AS A MODERATOR. AS TIME WENT ON, EVERYBODY STARTED ANSWERING THEIR OWN QUESTIONS WHICH IS AWESOME. NOW I’M NOT THE ONLY EXPERT, THERE ARE A BUNCH OF OTHER EXPERTS AND THAT’S WHAT YOU WANT. YOU’RE ONE PERSON, TWO, THREE, FIVE PEOPLE, A LOT OF THESE FEDERAL AGENCIES, EVEN STATE, LOCAL, THEY’RE REALLY, REALLY BIG. YOU CAN’T SCALE. YOU HAVE TO FIND OPPORTUNITIES TO SCALE. THIS IS A HUGE ONE TO DO THAT. TEAM CREATION, ALSO BEING OPEN TO EVERYONE IN THE ORG. A LOT OF TIMES WE COME FROM THE FACT EVERYBODY HAS TO REQUEST A SURE POINT SITE, HAS TO GO THROUGH A PROCESS. MAKE SURE WE KNOW WHAT THEY’RE DOING, PUTTING GUARDRAILS, PUTTING CHILDREN LIKE IN A CRIB, DON’T WANT THEM TO FALLOUT, LEAVE, RUN AWAY. WELL, IT IS A LITTLE DIFFERENT WITH TEAMS, RIGHT? THIS TOOK ME AWHILE TO SWITCH. I WAS OF THE MINDSET IN THE BEGINNING, YEAH, WE SHOULD LOCK IT DOWN, LOCK IT ALL DOWN, BUT PEOPLE GOT FRUSTRATED AND ANGRY AND STOPPED USING TEAMS AND STARTED USING SOMETHING ELSE THAT ENDED UP NOT BEING COMPLIANT, RIGHT, SO THAT’S THE DANGER OF THE SEE SAW THAT WE HAVE TO MANAGE, MAKE SURE WE GIVE PEOPLE WHAT THEY WANT BUT ALSO GIVING THEM GOOD GOVERNANCE AND GUARDRAILS TO GET THERE. EVEN TEAM CREATION IS OPEN TO EVERYBODY, WHAT’S IMPORTANT HERE IS WHAT HAPPENS TO THE END OF LIFE OF THE TEAM, WHAT HAPPENS TO THE DATA WHEN THE TEAM IS DONE. DO YOU ARCHIVE IT, DELETE IT, PUT IT IN SEPARATE STORAGE, THAT KIND OF THING, RIGHT? WE ALL HAVE REQUESTS, SUBPOENAS, HOPEFULLY NOT. WE HAVE ALL THESE THINGS TO RESPOND TO. SO MAKE SURE YOU KNOW FULLY WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH DATA FOR END OF LIFE. AND FINALLY, TRAINING PERFORMED AT THEIR OWN ENVIRONMENT, NOT OUT OF COMMERCIAL. RIGHT? SO SOME OF YOU HERE TODAY ARE REALLY FRUSTRATED, RIGHT, YOU SAW THINGS IN COMMERCIAL, GREAT, THIS IS AWESOME, WHEN IS IT COMING TO GCC AND HIGH AND DOD. I ASKED THE SAME THING TO TEAMMATES, TOO. SO A WAY TO AVOID THAT FOR YOUR END USERS IS TO SHOW THEM WHAT THEY HAVE TODAY. THAT’S REALLY IMPORTANT. THESE EMPLOYEES HAVE A LOT GOING ON, A LOT ON THEIR MIND. AND LEARNING SOMETHING THAT’S GOING TO COME SIX MONTHS DOWN THE ROAD OR EVEN TWO MONTHS DOWN THE ROAD ISN’T HELPFUL TO THEM TODAY. YEAH.>>SORRY, CAN YOU TAKE THE MICROPHONE?>>CAN WE TURN ON THIS MIKE? I THINK HE’S DOING IT RIGHT NOW.>>QUICK QUESTION ABOUT MICROSOFT OPENS UP COMMERCIAL CLOUD FOR TRIALS, THEY CAN CLICK INTO A SERVICE THAT WILL BE LIKE A TRIAL AND IT IS IN THE COMMERCIAL CLOUD. HOW DO YOU PREVENT PEOPLE FROM USING THAT, EVEN THOUGH YOU WANT THEM TO KIND OF ADOPT IT, YOU KNOW THAT SERVICE MAY BE AVAILABLE SIX MONTHS, A YEAR FROM NOW, BUT CAN GET FAMILIAR WITH IT PERFECT BEFOREHAND.>>YOU WERE SAYING TO HAVE THE LICENSE TO BE ABLE TO — SHOULDN’T BE. OH. SO THAT’S A GREAT QUESTION. THAT’S A LONGER ANSWER. WE’LL TAKE THAT AT THE AMA. AWESOME QUESTION. ALL RIGHT. LET’S TALK ABOUT THE MEAT AND POTATOES OF THIS SESSION. RIGHT? MY COLLEAGUES, EVERY TIME WE MEET, I’M LIKE EXCUSE ME, CAN WE TALK ABOUT WHEN THIS IS COMING TO GCC. I AM A BROKEN RECORD AND PEOPLE KNOW THAT, BUT I’M FINE WITH THAT. SEE, I KNEW IT WOULD BE POPULAR. I AM GETTING THAT PICTURE EMAILED. MADE THIS SHIRT TWO MONTHS AGO, DID A MOCK UP OF IT. I DIDN’T PURCHASE IT, IT IS IN MY CART TO BUY IT. HE AND I WERE JOKING, MAYBE WE SHOULD CREATE EXTERIORS. I KNOW. WE HEARD YOU, MAYBE WE’LL DO IT NEXT YEAR. THESE ARE IMPROVEMENTS THAT I THINK BASED ON THE PAST YEAR OF LISTENING, WE HAVE BEEN ACTIVELY LISTENING, WE HAVEN’T ACCOMPLISHED EVERYTHING WE NEED TO DO, BUT A FEW THINGS ARE COMING DOWN THE PIKE.>>AND TO ADD ONTO THAT, RIMA WOULD SAY I AM PUTTING A MARKETING SPIN ON IT, BUT I GET CALLED OUT, TEAMS HAVE LESS FEATURES AND GCC AND HIGH AND DOD FROM COMMERCIAL, BUT WE TALK ABOUT ALL OF THAT ARMOR, AND IF YOU THINK, YOU DIG DOWN WHAT IT ENTAILS, YOU HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT, START THINKING OF THEM AS FEATURES, YOU HAVE A WHOLE LOT KPLA THAN WHAT HAPPENS IN COMMERCIAL. THINGS COME IN COMMERCIAL, GETTING ARMORED, THEN READY TO ROLL INTO GCC AND I AGREE SOMETIMES DON’T COME WITH HEATED SEATS. EVENTUALLY, YES. IT TAKES TIME TO BRING THEM IN. IT WOULD BE HELPFUL IF YOU HAVE MORE VISIBILITY INTO WHEN THAT FEATURE WILL BE, AND GET A HEADS UP TO PREPARE YOUR ORGANIZATION AND HAVE COMMUNICATION AROUND IT. SO THAT’S ALSO WORK IN PROGRESS. WANT TO ASSURE YOU IT IS HAPPENING, WE ARE LISTENING. >>SO I THINK IN JANUARY WE’RE GOING TO START LOGGING IN THE PUBLIC SECTOR BLOG. SHE’S HERE TOO. SHE LOOKS FAMILIAR. WE’RE GOING TO START BLOGGING ABOUT TEAMS IN GOV, SPECIFICALLY FOR U. S. GOV, RIGHT, AND THE OTHER THING WE HEARD WAS HAVING A MONTHLY CALL, HAVING AN AMA MONTHLY WOULD BE REALLY, REALLY HELPFUL, SO WE’RE GOING TO TRY TO START THAT ALSO IN JANUARY, TOO. AND THEN THE OTHER THING ABOUT WHAT’S NEW.>>THE WHAT’S NEW BLOG. WE ALREADY HAVE A WHAT’S NEW BLOG THAT CAPTURES WHAT HAPPENED IN THE PREVIOUS MONTH, AND GOING FORWARD WE ARE ADDING A GOVERNMENT SECTION SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO SCROLL THROUGH THE WHOLE BLOG, YOU CAN LOOK AT THE GOVERNMENT SECTION THAT’S RELEVANT TO YOU, PICK OUT THINGS THAT SPECIFICALLY APPLY TO YOU. THAT’S IN THE WORKS AS WELL.>> AWESOME. ALL RIGHT. I PUT AN ASTERISK ON THIS, BARRING NO ISSUES AND DELAYS ON ACCREDITATION STATUS, SECURITY AND COMPLIANCE IS OUR TOP SECTION BECAUSE THAT’S REALLY EVERYBODY’S CONCERN, RIGHT? SO WE’VE GOT COMPLIANCE CONTACT SEARCH, 30 DAY RETENTION, IT IS 30 DAY TO SEVEN YEARS, RIGHT, OR MORE. AUDIT LOG SEARCH, LEGAL HOLD, E DISCOVERY CALLS AND MEETINGS AVAILABLE. WHEN YOU SEE A CIRCLE THAT’S FILLED, THAT MEANS IT IS AVAILABLE. IF YOU SEE A CIRCLE NOT FILLED, THAT MEANS IT IS PLANNING. IT IS IN THE PLAN AND THEY’RE WORKING ON IT OR PLANNING TO RIGHT NOW. >>I SEE THERE ARE A LOT OF WORDS THERE, INTER OP, CAN YOU PLEASE EXPLAIN WHAT’S THAT.>>THAT’S A GREAT QUESTION. THANK YOU, SANKALP. UNDER THE CHAT SECTION, UNIFIED PRESENCE, AVAILABLE RATE, INTEROP WHICH HE MENTIONED. THAT MEANS THE ABILITY FOR A CHAT, SKYPE USER CAN MESSAGE A TEAMS USERS. SO THE CHAT CAN TRAVERSE SERVICES. TODAY IT IS AVAILABLE IN ALL THREE CLOUDS. THERE ARE A FEW CAVEATS TO MAKE SURE YOU MADE IT IN OP, SKYPE FOR BUSINESS ONLY USER CAN MESSAGE A TEAMS ONLY USER. IF YOU ARE IN ISLANDS MODE, YOU WON’T HAVE NEEDED INTEROP. BE CAUTIOUS OF THAT. WE HAVE A LOT OF GREAT CONTENT ONLINE WITH TEAMS. COM. IF YOU LOOK AT UPGRADE JOURNEY, WE HAVE A BUNCH OF IMAGES THAT EXPLAIN IT. I AM A VISUAL PERSON, THEY’RE AMAZING TO UNDERSTAND THE CAVEATS. EMAIL NOTIFICATION, MEANING IF YOU CHAT SOMEONE, MAYBE THOUGH WEREN’T AT THEIR DESK, RECEIVE AN EMAIL NOTIFICATION, THEY MISSED THAT CHAT. COMING SOON FOR DOD. THIS IS A HOT TOPIC. A LOT OF FOLKS MISS THAT IN SKYPE, THEY’RE LIKE WE HAD THAT IN SKYPE, WHERE IS IT IN TEAMS IN GOV. IF YOU HAVE A 101 CHAT, YOU CAN START A DESKTOP SHARE. ALL RIGHT. TABS AND APPS. THIS WAS ALSO VERY EXCITING. SO EVERY TAB SHIFT ON RELEASE, WORD, EXCEL, POWERPOINT, WIKI. THE WEB TAB IS THERE FOR GCC. LIKE A FIST PUMP, THAT WAS AWESOME. GETS US AROUND A LOT OF OTHER THINGS THAT ARE POTENTIALLY MISSING. WEBSITE TAB, YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO PIN A WEBSITE NOT IN YOUR NETWORK BOUNDARY. YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO PIN MALICIOUS WEBSITES. AND IT IS COMING VERY, VERY SOON, LIKE VERY, VERY SOON FOR GCC HIGH AND DOD.>>AND ABOVE THE APP STORE, IT SHOULD BE COMING SOON. I CAN CONFIRM THE DATE FOR THAT ON THE PUBLIC ROAD MAP AS WELL. >>WE’RE PUTTING THAT IN THE PUBLIC ROAD MAP? NO WAY. THAT’S AWESOME. YES. I WANT TO CAVEAT A COUPLE THINGS. WE AND TEAMS ENGINEERING, I ALWAYS WANT TO KNOW WHAT’S GOING ON AROUND ME. THEY DIDN’T OWN THE ONE NOTE TAB, WE’RE RELIENLT ON OTHER SERVICES WITHIN CLOUD PLATFORM TO INTEGRATE WITH US. WHEN THE TAB IS COMING, VERY SOON. [ [ INAUDIBLE ] ]>> REPEAT THE QUESTION.>>WAS THIS TIED TO ONE NOTE TEAM SAYING THEY’RE GOING TO RE-RELEASE ONE NOTE 2019 DESKTOP CLIENT.>>PART OF OFFICE. >>YEAH. I DIDN’T HEAR THAT. BUT YOU SHOULD ASK THEM. MIGHT BE A GOOD QUESTION. THE OTHER THING THAT’S COMING VERY SOON IS THE PLANNER TAB. AGAIN, ALSO VERY, VERY SOON. PLANNER IS HUGE IN GOV. IT IS AVAILABLE ON GCC AND GCC HIGH. THAT’S A BIG WIN THERE. THAT’S COMING SOON AS WELL. AND THAT’S BEING WORKED ON NOW. AND YOU MENTIONED APP STORE TOO, RIGHT? I HAVE THE THIRD PARTY APPS OFF BY DEFAULT. HERE’S THE INTERESTING THING. SO AS AN ADMIN, WE WANT TO GIVE YOU POWER TO SAY EVEN THOUGH I HAVE TO COMPLY WITH BOUNDARIES FOR HERE, I STILL WANT TO PURCHASE OR STILL HAVE A TOOL I USE HERE THAT MAY NOT BE COMPLIANT. WE WANT TO GIVE YOU THE POWER TO MAKE THAT DECISION TO HAVE THAT INTEGRATED WITH TEAMS. THE APP STORE WILL BE THERE, ALL APPS WILL BE OFF BY DEFAULT. SO WHOEVER THE SERVICE OWNER IS CAN MAKE THE DECISION TO SAY YES, WE WANT TO INCLUDE THAT IN THE CLOUD, RIGHT? SO YOU DON’T WANT TO GET IN THE BUSINESS OF YOUR BUSINESS, HOW YOU RUN YOUR ORGANIZATION. THAT WAS BIG TO EMPOWER ALL OF YOU TO DO WHAT YOU NEED TO DO, INTEGRATE WITH WHAT YOU NEED TO INTEGRATE WITH. BOTS, CONNECTERS, WEB HOOKS, BEING WORKED ON ACTIVELY. [ INAUDIBLE ]>>CAN YOU REPEAT THAT?>>YES. HE ASKED WHEN IS MEETING RECORDING COMING FOR MEETINGS. SO THEY’RE WORKING ON IT NOW. MEETING RECORDING IS DEPENDING ON STREAM. WE HAVE TO WAIT FOR STREAM TO SHIP. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THE STREAM SHIP DATE IS. I KNOW, CAUSE WE’RE DIFFERENT. THAT’S THE ONLY THING. ONCE THAT SHIPS, WE SHOULD BE RIGHT AFTER. SAME THING, LIVE EVENTS REQUIRE STREAM AS WELL, WE’RE WAITING FOR THOSE TO SHIP AS WELL.>>YOU HAVE A QUESTION THERE. [ INAUDIBLE ]>>THE APPS IS IF A DEVELOPER WANTS TO UP LOAD THEIR OWN APP, ADMIN CAN DETERMINE WHO WILL UPLOAD, WHO CAN UPLOAD AN APP, NOT OPEN TO EVERYBODY. LITTLE MORE CONSUMER DEVELOPMENT. AUDIO CONFERENCING JUST GOT SHIPPED NOT LONG AGO IN GCC HIGH AND DOD WHICH IS AWESOME. PEER TO PEER VIDEO MEETING. YOU CAN HAVE A VIDEO CALL IN ALL THREE CLOUDS, SHARE DESKTOP, SHARE A SPECIFIC WINDOW. MEETING NOTES IS AVAILABLE IN MEETING VIEW. AND BACKGROUND BLUR. I WILL TELL YOU AN INTERESTING SCENARIO. I HAD A MILITARY ORGANIZATION WHO DEALS WITH SENSITIVE DATA AND THEY USED BACKGROUND BLUR ALL THE TIME IN CASE BECAUSE THEY WANT TO BLUR POTENTIALLY SENSITIVE DATA BEHIND THEM, AND THEY’RE HEAVILY RELYING ON THAT. WOW, THAT’S A GREAT USE CASE, THEY WERE EXCITED WITH BACKGROUND BLUR WHEN IT LANDED. CALLING. WE DON’T HAVE CALLING PLANS IN GCC HIGH AND DOD BECAUSE OF ACCREDITATION RESTRICTIONS, WE’RE NOT ALLOWED TO. WE HAVE THEM IN GCC. ALL THREE CLOUDS. WOO HOO. THAT JUST SHIPPED THREE WEEKS AGO, FOUR WEEKS AGO. BRAND NEW. CALLER DASHBOARD, ENTERPRISE VOICE, INCLUDES AUTO ATTENDANT, CLOUD VOICE MAIL, ALL THREE CLOUDS. YEAH.>>WHEN YOU GET AN UPDATE, HOW DO YOU GET THE INFORMATION — [ INAUDIBLE ] >>I THINK THE QUESTION IS HOW DO WE KNOW OURSELVES WHEN SOMETHING IS COMING DOWN THE PIKE. YEAH. USUALLY WE WILL POST A MESSAGE IN THE MESSAGE CENTER SO THERE WILL BE A MESSAGE CENTER.>>THAT’S WHY WE RESPOND WITH WHAT’S NEW BLOG, HAVING THAT CAVEAT.>>THAT WILL HELP BRING THAT TO BEAR. WE KNOW NOT EVERYBODY IS ADMIN, NOT EVERYBODY HAS ACCESS TO MESSAGE CENTER.>>VERY FEW PEOPLE DO.>>CORRECT. HONESTLY, TAKES A COUPLE OF CLICKS TO ACCESS IT, REMIND YOURSELF TO THINK AND LOOK AT IT, RIGHT? I’M LAZY. LESS CLICKS, BETTER FOR ME, RIGHT? THAT’S HOW I ROLL. WE HAVE UPDATED DOCUMENTATION WITH DIRECT PLANNING. CHECK ON THAT WEBSITE. THESE SLIDES ARE AVAILABLE AFTERWARDS. DON’T WORRY. YOU’LL HAVE THE LINKS. SO I GET ASKED ABOUT THIS A LOT. THIS IS NOT COMING INTO ALL THREE CLOUDS. AND THERE’S A REASON WHY. THIS IS LESS THAN 1 OF USERS USES THIS IN COMMERCIAL. WE DECIDED TO WORK ON THINGS THAT WERE MORE HIGHER PRIORITY. AND SHIP THOSE FASTER RATHER THAN THIS. LARGE SIZE TEAMS AVAILABLE IN GCC, YOU CAN HAVE UP TO 5, 000 MEMBERS ON A TEAM, THAT WILL BE SHIPPING SOON IN GCC HIGH AND DOD. EXTERNAL ACCESS. LET’S EXPLAIN EXTERNAL ACCESS. WE TALKED ABOUT THIS EARLIER.>>I GET SUPER CONFUSED BETWEEN EXTERNAL ACCESS AND GUEST ACCESS. FIVE PEOPLE EXPLAINED IT, I WANTED RIMA TO EXPLAIN IT, THIS IS RECORDED AND I CAN GO BACK AND LISTEN TO IT.>>DON’T WORRY. SO EXTERNAL ACCESS ESSENTIALLY MEANS FED RATING FOR 101 OR GROUP CHAT. IF YOU FEDDER ATE AND CHAT, THAT’S EXTERNAL ACCESS, SIMILAR TO SKYPE. YOU CAN JUST HAVE CHAT. GUEST ACCESS MEANS BRINGING A GUEST INTO YOUR AZURE INFRASTRUCTURE, ALLOWING THEM TO BE PART, A GUEST IN A TEAM, RIGHT? SO THEY WOULD HAVE ACCESS TO FILES, TEAM CONVERSATIONS, THAT KIND OF THING. THAT’S DIFFERENT. EXTERNAL ACCESS CHAT, GUEST ACCESS, FULL TEAM. ALL RIGHT. SO THIS IS POWERFUL. I DON’T THINK WE REALLY ADVERTISED IT THAT MUCH. THIS WAS AWESOME FOR A LOT OF GCC HIGH CUSTOMERS. SO EXTERNAL ACCESS EITHER TO GCC OR COMMERCIAL PLATFORM IS AVAILABLE IN GCC HIGH TODAY. SO IF YOU’RE A GCC HIGH CONSUMER, YOU CAN FED RATE WITH COMMERCIAL ON GCC CUSTOMER. >>EASIER WAY, SEND A WEB LINK TO THE TEAM AND –>>YES, THANK YOU, SIR. THAT’S AN AWESOME POINT. HE MENTIONED THAT YOU CAN HAVE A WEB LINK TO A MEETING AND HAVE ANOTHER PERSON OR CONSUMER COME INTO THE MEETING THROUGH WEB VIEW. YOU DON’T NECESSARILY HAVE TO INVITE THEM INTO YOUR ENVIRONMENT. AND THEN THE OTHER THING TOO, I FORGOT TO MENTION EXTERNAL ACCESS WITHIN CLOUD, DOD WAS SHIPPED RECENTLY, IF YOU HAVE OTHER MILITARY AGENCIES YOU WANT TO CHAT WITH, YOU CAN DO THAT TODAY. GUEST ACCESS. STILL IN PLANNING STAGES. FEW DEPEN DEN SEES TO WAIT ON. MODERN ADMIN SETTER AVAILABLE. PRIVATE TEAM AVAILABLE. WOO HOO. AND APP PERMISSION POLICY. THIS IS NEW. THIS CAME IN WHEN THE WEB TAG SHIPPED. MAKE SURE THAT WHENEVER YOU GO WORK AT HOW TO ENABLE THE WEBSITE TAB THAT YOU LOOK AT PERMISSION POLICIES. WEBSITE TAB IS OFF BY DEFAULT. ADMIN HAS TO GO IN THERE AND TURN IT ON. IT IS A 30 SECOND PROCESS, VERY SIMPLE. BUT THE APP PERMISSION SETUP POLICIES ARE PART OF THAT.>>YOU HAVE A QUESTION. [ INAUDIBLE ]>>YEAH. SO THE QUESTION WAS ARCHIVE A TEAM MEANS SOMETHING SPECIFIC TO CERTAIN AGENCIES REGARDING SECURITY COMPLIANCE, RECORDS MANAGEMENT, AND HOW YOU ACTUALLY COMMUNICATE. SO EVERYTHING BEHIND THE TEAM IS AN OFFICE 365 GROUP, RIGHT, SO HOW YOU HANDLE ARCHIVING OF THAT GROUP AND ALL ITS INFORMATION, NOT JUST THE TEAM CHAT BUT THE SHARE POINT FILES AND ALSO EXCHANGE MAILBOX THAT COMES WITH THE TEAM, RIGHT, MEDIA POINTER BOARD OR ANYTHING, LOOK AT THAT HOLISTICALLY. I HAVE A LOT OF GREAT RESOURCES ON THE FOOT BOOK, AND ALSO IF YOU GO TO THE END OF THE FOOT BOOK, WE HAVE SECURITY COMPLIANCE FOOT BOOK SPECIFICALLY AND THAT HAS A TON OF AWESOME RESOURCES. THAT’S A GREAT COMMENT BECAUSE THINK OF ALL OF OFFICE 365, DON’T JUST THINK ABOUT TEAMS, RIGHT? SURE. >>THANK YOU. HE ASKED FOR THE WEBSITE TAB, IS THERE A GLOBAL SETTING OR DO YOU HAVE TO DO IT INDIVIDUALLY, RIGHT. IF YOU GO TO THE TEAM DATA CENTER, I CAN SEND A LINK TO THE ARTICLE HOW TO TURN IT ON AFTER. USE OF METRICS COMING FOR GCC AND HIGH AND DOD, WE HAVE THE ANDROID APP AVAILABLE ACROSS ALL THREE CLOUDS. PUSH NOTIFICATIONS ARE PENDING, YOU CAN INSTALL THE APP AND USE IT IF YOU LIKE. SO HOW DO YOU GET STARTED TODAY. REVIEW THE GOVERNMENT ADOPTION GUIDE. TAKE OUR TEAMS FOR U. S. GOV TRAINING COURSE, BECOME A SERVICE ADOPTION SPECIALIST, ASK IT TO ENABLE TEAMS AND START USING IT TODAY. START THE AMA SOON. DID YOU WANT TO CLOSE WITH ANYTHING? >>SURE. LET’S START WITH THE AMA. >>YEAH. AWESOME. I KNOW WE WENT THROUGH QUICKLY, THERE WILL BE A LOT OF QUESTIONS. I’M GOING TO STAY HERE, SANKALP IS GOING TO CATCH A FLIGHT. I AM HERE THE NEXT HOUR OR SO. IF YOU WANT TO ASK QUESTIONS, YOU’RE MORE THAN HAPPY TO. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR COMING. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND. YOU’RE AWESOME. [ APPLAUSE
