Need to Know podcast–Episode 203

We catch you up with everything in the Microsoft Cloud and then spend some time talking about the new certifications that have just become available from Microsoft for both Microsoft 365 and Azure. I share some of my experiences and thought around doing these exams and their value to all IT Professionals going forward. We’ll be covering more about certifications down the track but this one should get you thinking about which one you should do!

Need to Know podcast–Episode 202

The Microsoft Ignite tour has been to town so Brenton and I share our thoughts on attending the event. We wrap up what we believed to be the best sessions and overall take aways from the premier Microsoft IT Professional conference in Australia for 2019. We also cover off a few of the important updates from the Microsoft Cloud to make sure that you don’t miss anything in the meantime. I also share my thoughts on using the Kaizala app during the conference with the CIAOPS Patron community which is great lead in for our interview this episode – Parveen Maloo who is the Senior Product Marketing Manager for Kaizala. Sit back and enjoy something about a product you probably never knew Microsoft had.

Need to Know podcast–Episode 201

We’ve recovered from our 200th episode and are getting back into the swing of our regular programming with some updates, information and opinions from the Microsoft Cloud. We cover some recent important updates, especially in the area of security, as well as some news around Microsoft 365 and Azure. We also dip our toes quickly into the area of certifications but we’ll need more time to do justice to the topic. So stay tuned for that episode coming real soon. For now, sit back and enjoy as we get back to what we like doing – keeping you up to date with everything that’s happening in the Microsoft Cloud.
