Microsoft 365 PnP Weekly – Episode 91

In this weekly discussion of latest news and topics around Microsoft 365, hosts – Vesa Juvonen (Microsoft), Waldek Mastykarz (Rencore), are joined by D’arce Hess (CloudWay) – US based MVP and Information Architect to discuss the importance of information architecture and the human side of IT.   Success is defined by people, not by technology.   There is a need to manage the disconnects between decision makers, IT and information users.  Tips for how include:  Get end-users in room to define actual requirements, keep refining how to engage and support users, embrace Evergreen mode, manage IT’s fears, make decisions based on analytics and not on emotions.   There are opportunities for surfacing actionable data more readily.  Are customers transitioning to Teams as their intranet?  Teams is the platform for collaboration pared with SharePoint for content discoverability.    Additionally, in this episode, 15 recently released articles from Microsoft and the PnP Community are highlighted.

What’s happening this week?  The release of SharePoint Framework  (SPFx) v.1.11 with improved Microsoft Teams support, that will be followed by a CLI update and SPFx v1.11 web part/extensions showing up in AppSource.

Note:  The PnP Weekly team is taking a break for 4 weeks.  The next episode (Season 4) of PnP Weekly (Episode 92) will be delivered on August 11th.

As always, if you need help on an issue, want to share a discovery, or just want to say: “Job well done”, please reach out to Vesa, to Waldek or to your PnP Community.
