Office Delve is here…

Starting today, Office Delve (previously codenamed “Oslo”) will begin rolling out to Office 365 business customers.
Office Delve is a new way to discover relevant information and connections from across your work life. Delve displays information that is most relevant for each person based on the work they are doing and the people with whom they are engaging.  With Delve, information finds you versus you having to find information.

All of this is presented in a beautiful, card-based design that is easy to understand and use. It also presents intuitive ways to view content, so you no longer have to remember where stuff is stored or who shared it with you.

Windows Azure to Microsoft azure

Microsoft is all set to rebrand Windows Azure to Microsoft Azure. This makes lot of sense as the previous name (Windows Azure) gave an impression that it was limited to only Windows or Microsoft stack only. But, Azure today has evolved as a multi-platform and enterprise-grade public cloud platform. Today, it supports Windows, SQL and .NET to Python, Ruby, Node.js, Java, Hadoop, Linux, and Oracle. So, in that sense the rebranding makes lot of sense. Also, Microsoft has announced trade-in scheme that invites Indian SMBs to exchange older hardware for Azure credits. Click here to find out more
