What’s new on the Office Roadmap - 2016-02-01

AddThis Social Bookmark Button
Here we go again! The Office team keep a steady pace of updates coming to the Office Roadmap. This time it’s a bit weird, but we have a lot of things being rolled back!? Also I noticed that the site was down today for maintenance. So, is this just a DR solution and they lost data or have they just messed things up? I smell that someone actually MANUALLY updates this list, but hey, they can’t be that crazy, can they? Anyhow - this is NOT how a roadmap/changelog should work. Microsoft, you customers tries to listen to what you
do, but this is just not acceptable. Last week I told a customer it was launched, and now it’s not….FIX THIS. Scrap this Roadmap site and make proper changelog - if you don’t know how, go ask your colleagues in the Microsoft Graph team and ask them how they do it. Changes 2016-02-01 Launched Nothing new launched this time around. Rolling out Apps for Project Pro for Office 365 write support: Rolled back from Launched!

Raising your Digital Quotient | McKinsey & Company

Our examination of the digital performance of major corporations points to four lessons in which we have increasing confidence:

First, incumbents must think carefully about the strategy
available to them. The number of companies that can operate as pure-play
disrupters at global scale—such as Spotify, Square, and Uber—are few in
number. Rarer still are the ecosystem shapers that set de facto
standards and gain command of
the universal control points created by
hyperscaling digital platforms. Ninety-five to 99 percent of incumbent
companies must choose a different path, not by “doing digital” on the
margin of their established businesses but by wholeheartedly committing
themselves to a clear strategy.Second, success depends on the ability to invest in relevant
digital capabilities that are well aligned with strategy—and to do so at
scale. The right capabilities help you keep pace with your customers as
digitization transforms the way they research and consider products and
services, interact, and make purchases on the digital...(Read whole news on source site)

Robin Sillem, William Ferguson This blog post explores performing man in the middle (MITM) attacks on your own machine, on some pre-made sample web apps. The focus of this post is on securing web apps, rather than the attacks themselves. An important note before starting: This blog post shows how to perform an attack on a sandboxed sample website. Attacking targets without prior mutual consent is illegal. It is the reader’s responsibility to obey all applicable laws. The writers of this blog post and Scott Logic assume no liability and are not responsible for any misuse or damage caused from the use
of this tutorial. Session Hijack A session hijack is where you have a session - an ongoing HTTP conversation - with a website, and an attacker gains access to this session, communicating with the site as if they were you. You may or may not be aware that the attacker is using your session. The session may or may not be authenticated, but it is likely that it is if any sensitive information is involved. This means that the attacker can do what ever you can on the site in question at the time of the hijack - change your password, read...(Read whole news on source site)
