Michael Sampson - Currents

Two things stand out to me about Hyperfish : first, they take meeting productivity seriously, and second, they offer an incredible tool for directory accuracy and profile information. The basic goal is to ensure directory details and contact information for everyone are up-to-date.

This information is programmatically ingested from a directory system (LDAP, or Microsoft Active Directory), or from your HR system, and is controlled by an IT adminstrator.

When a Client Only Wants Part of Office 365

Michael Sampson - Currents

Another thing that would have to be set up is the synchronisation of the client’s LDAP directory with Active Directory, with the LDAP directory remaining the authoritative master. Long term, when the desire to simplify the various moving pieces becomes more important, the LDAP directory could be swapped out for Azure AD, and email and calendar services moved from Google to Office 365.

In the session before lunch, Elaine and Chris are talking about the integration between Yammer and SharePoint. It’s a Developers session rather than a business session though.
