Michael Sampson - Currents

Yesterday I outlined the original idea of Hyperfish: ensuring that directory and profile information is up-to-date and complete in Active Directory (including on-premises and Azure AD, and a hybrid of both). It’s not a just an Active Directory problem; it’s an all-of-IT problem.

Activity Streams: Moving Beyond Event Aggregation

Collaborative Thinking

In this post, I want to examine the topic of Activity Streams. Trend : Activity streams will continue to be a much hyped capability within social platforms.
