Microsoft announced the “Ignite 2018 Book of News” in its monthly Office 365 video podcast on Youtube. You can now download the 27 pages PDF which sums up all major news and annoucements which were made on Microsoft Ignite 2018. You can find news regarding Office 365 on page 24 et sqq.
Last week (24. – 28. of September 2018) Microsoft Ignite 2018 took place in Orlando, FL, USA. There were several news and announcements regarding intelligent communication based on Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business (Server) and related technology and services.
You can find a link list of interesting sessions regarding Teams and Skype for Business, here and of course you can watch the recordings of the sessions on demand, if available.
