On this week’s show, Jeremy Chapman is joined by Julia White to take a look at the last year of updates in Office 365 give a sneak peek of what’s coming. We cover themes from machine learning advances and how to better manage your time and find information in Delve to improved collaboration in email and native information protection in Office apps.

It’s been a big year for Office 365 with more than 450 updates to the service. In the past year, we’ve seen Office experiences delivered across multiple platforms, improvements for personalizing the experience with updates to Delve and the Office Graph and IT controls for mobile device management and data loss prevention. And that’s just scratching the surface.

On the show, Julia White recaps the year and gives a sneak peek of what’s coming—including updates to Delve and Office Groups, integration between email and OneDrive for attachments, Sway joining Office 365 and a powerful dashboard and analytics coming to Power BI. I also demo what’s coming for information protection and IT pros with a sneak peak of Data Loss Prevention (DLP) native in Office desktop apps with policies in SharePoint and OneDrive for Business plus more Power BI for Office 365 admins in the Office 365 content pack coming later this summer.

Of course in the short time we had, we were only able to hit on a few highlights coming to Office 365. To see some of these updates in action, be sure to watch the show!
