SharePoint Podcast #330 -- Number 4 Will Shock You
We start the show off by talking about which version of SharePoint is most popular. And because we are quick learners, we use the tried and true method of “#4 Will Shock You” to make the article as click-bait as possible. Then, we make fun of the tactic because that is what we do. I will save you the click here and just tell you the answer: SharePoint 2016 is the most popular. But you will have to watch the show to find out about numbers 1, 2 and 3. See what I did there? ;)
Say Goodbye to Traditional PC Lifecycle Management
Traditional IT tools, including Microsoft SCCM, Ghost Solution Suite, and KACE, often require considerable custom configurations by T3 technicians (an expensive and often elusive IT resource) to enable management of a hybrid onsite + remote workforce. In many cases, even with the best resources, organizations are finding that these on-premise tools simply cannot support remote endpoints consistently and reliably due to infrastructure limitations.
With the click-bait done, we then dive into our usual love of PowerShell and the release of the new SharePoint Online management cmdlets. Speaking of new, we also discuss Azure AD Connect and the SharePoint Framework roadmap. Pretty solid stuff for all of us SharePoint administrators to keep in mind. Sprinkle in some more PowerShell for Azure, a little Hotmail hacking, our love of BGInfo, and then we end with me whining about how terrible Google Docs is to use. Oh, the humanity.
