    OneDrive turns 15!

    OneDrive turns 15!

    It's OneDrive's 15th birthday, and all the presents are for you. On this episode, Ankita Kirti and Mark Kashman chat with Arwa Tyebkhan (Principal GPM | OneDrive) and Steven Bailey (CVP OneDrive and SharePoint engineering) to celebrate both OneDrive’s 15th lap around the sun AND to hear more about the new OneDrive Home experience. We first go into the way-back machine to learn about the evolution from Windows Live Mesh, Grove.exe and SharePoint Workspaces, into SkyDrive and SkyDrive Pro, and land on OneDrive as we know it today. We also discover that it’s not only OneDrive’s birthday… the team has been hard at work redesigning the OneDrive Home experience to help you easily resume your work and catch up on what you missed while you were away – everything at-a-glance and easy to prioritize where to start working.

    Get your OKRs on with Viva Goals

    Get your OKRs on with Viva Goals

    Go behind the scenes with the solution that aligns teams to your organization’s strategic priorities, driving results and a thriving business. On this episode, Chris and Mark chat with Lucy Hitz (product marketing for Viva Goals) and Kevin Shively (Vice President of marketing for Viva Goals) to celebrate the general availability (GA) for Viva Goals (8/1/2022). We chat about important aspects of product design and development from the acquisition of Ally.io into its evolution as "Viva Goals" within the Microsoft Viva family offered through Microsoft 365, experienced as an app in Microsoft Teams. And we cover how Goals supports visibility and organizational alignment via the use of Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) - for individuals, managers, and at the cross-company level.
