Review of the Delve iPhone App

During one of my recent presentations, Enterprise Social: Where are we now and where are we going, I praised the Office Graph & Delve but mentioned that I really missed an app. Well, it’s here now and available for the iPhone. No, I don’t have an iPhone. Do I want one? That’s content for another blog, but because I am limited on time I will give you the answer at the end of this review. After reading the latest blog about the new Office 365 & Delve developments, I got pretty excited to try out the new apps. Two problems. One: the apps are for the iPhone (and I don’t have one) and the apps are only available in the US, Ireland and Norway (and I don’t live in these countries). Luckily for me, my wife is American and has an iPhone! She was kind of enough to let me borrow her phone for a bit. I tried out both apps and took some screenshots. Let’s start with the a review of the Delve app.

Review of the Office 365 Video iPhone App

On April 16, 2015 in a post on Office Blogs, Mark Kashman made some awesome announcements about the Office 365 Video Portal. One of the new features is the launch of the iPhone app. As I mentioned in my review of the Delve app I borrowed my wife’s iPhone to test the app and write a review.

Once again I am proud to be part of this event as the speaker chair and part of the session selection team. Together with Scot Hillier, Spencer Harbar and Mirjam van Olst the first speakers and sessions are announced on the website. Click here to view the speaker overview.

I am speaking at SPBiz

I am honored to be speaking at the first SPBiz conference in the world! The follow-up to the very successful SP24 conference is coming this June! The speaker line-up is amazing and I am proud to be part of such an amazing group of people. You can read all about the event by clicking here. My session is about Office 365 & Adoption, one of my favorite topics. Hereby the abstract:

How to drive adoption for Office 365

Adoption is at the center of everything. It’s crucial for a successful deployment and use of Office 365 and its online services. Although adoption makes sense it’s not easy to drive and manage adoption for Office 365. During this session Jasper Oosterveld (Office 365 MVP) takes you on an adoption journey to help you understand why adoption is important and how you can achieve the highest level of adoption.

The presentation covers the following topics:

  • The Microsoft adoption framework
  • Office 365 usage scenarios that can drive adoption
  • Real world examples of driving adoption
  • Out of the box tools to monitor adoption

The key take away points are:

  • The reasons why Adoption is crucial for a successful launch and use of Office 365.
  • Learn about Office 365 usage scenarios that can benefit your customers or your own business.
  • Receiving useful tips, tricks and resources to drive adoption within your own business or for your customers.

This session was really well received during the keynote of the Metalogix Roadshow in Amsterdam. The attendees gave me a 8.6! I also work for one of the leading Office 365 & SharePoint partners in the Netherlands with a huge focus, and track record, around user adoption.
Hope to talk to you in June!
