Changing Workplace Behavior and a Focus on Intranets
Owen Allen
I enjoyed reading Paul Miller‘s article about his predictions for the Digital Workplace for 2017.  So much so, that I decided to put down some thoughts that I couldn’t get out of my mind any other way. Paul Miller, who leads the Digital Workplace Group, has a track record of prediction about the digital workplace […] [read].

Collaboration in the Market
Owen Allen
Atlassian and Slack each are making plays in the collaboration marketplace today. Both of these moves are in response to recent advances that Microsoft has made with Office 365 and are critical to their long term future as platforms. By acquiring Trello, Atlassian is expanding it’s collection of collaboration services and is a stronger competitor for […] [read].

What goes around, comes around.
Owen Allen
2016 was a fun and interesting and painful and excruciating and difficult and rewarding and peaceful and disruptful year. It had a little bit of everything, …which turns out to be often how I feel about every previous year on every Jan 4th. Lots of goals for the year to come, lots of ideas about […] [read].

Cloud Hybrid Search Preview
Owen Allen
If you are using SharePoint Server 2010 or SharePoint Server 2013 on-premises in conjunction with Office 365 and SharePoint Online, then you probably have started to tire of having a search center for your on-premises content and a separate search center for your cloud-based content. At Microsoft Ignite (Chicago, May 2015), it was announced that […] [read].

Live Writer is back
Owen Allen
Just a quick note to test out he new version of Live Writer.  It’s a little tool to post to blogs. An excuse for my not posting for six months? No., but perhaps it will help me get back into the mode of posting to this blog.  Download here: http://openlivewriter.org/  [read].

Mid-Year 2015
Owen Allen
It seems kind of silly that I’m opening two blog entries in a row with the comment that I haven’t blogged much about my recent job change… but that is the way it is. I consider myself very fortunate to have been hired back with Microsoft as a Technology Specialist (Sales Engineer) in the Pacific […] [read].

Should Microsoft Kill SharePoint?
Owen Allen
This is a pretty sensationalistic title.  Memeburn wrote an article based on word spoken by Gartner Analyst Jeffrey Mann (@jeffmann) at the 2013 Gartner Symposium.  Disclaimer: I don’t have access to Jeff’s original words, only his words as reported by the Memeburn article, so there might be some differences in the interpretation. The article mixes […] [read].
