I servizi Office365, come gli altri servizi Cloud di Microsoft (azure e intune), sono in continuo e costante aggiornamento e finora non erano ben chiare quale sarebbero state le novità e i tempi di rilascio.
Ora ci viene in aiuto questa pagina web: http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/products/office-365-roadmap-FX104343353.aspx.
In questo sito vengono evidenziate le novità sul prodotto divise per launched, rolling out, in development, canceled e previous releases.
Tra le funzionalità appena rilasciate troviamo ad esempio:
DirSync tool with password hash sync as backup for Federated Sign-in
Office 365 customers who use federated sign-in can now use DirSync with password hash sync as a backup in case there is a failure with any part of the on-premises identity provider. In case of failure you can reconfigure the Azure AD tenant from federated to standard in a matter of hours to enable sign-in.
Sign-In page branding for Office 365
The Office 365 sign-in page can be branded with the additional purchase of Microsoft Azure AD Premium subscription. This subscription includes Company Branding which can be used to customize the sign-in page for all applications including Office 365, and also the Azure Management portal and the Azure Access Panel page.
Mentre tra quelle “in forno” troviamo ad esempio:
Customizable SharePoint Online navigation bar
A new SharePoint Online admin center feature that allows admins the ability to show or hide “Newsfeed/Yammer,” “Sites” and “OneDrive for Business” for their users’ Office 365 navigation bar experience
MAPI over HTTP for Outlook 2013 and Exchange Online
MAPI over HTTP is a new transport used to connect Outlook and Exchange. It is the long term replacement for RPC over HTTP connectivity (commonly referred to as Outlook Anywhere). MAPI/HTTP removes the complexity of Outlook Anywhere’s dependency on the legacy RPC technology.
