Microsoft Stream – It’s YouTube For Your Company

In this episode of Azure Friday, Vishal Sood gives Scott Hanselman a quick tour of Microsoft Stream, which is built on Microsoft Azure and enables you to upload & share videos across your organization.

Microsoft Stream feels more like OneDrive than YouTube, but I think this has a lot of potential for training, HR and promo videos. Stream is currently in Beta.

Microsoft Rights Management Services (RMS) Whitepapers

Networks today are no longer a simple group of laptops, PCs and on-premise servers controlled by the IT department. Now we have to contend with cloud services, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) scenarios, the Consumerization of IT (CoIT), telecommuters, and hybrid networks.

Simply put, networks aren’t simple anymore, especially when it comes to protecting company data.

Fortunately, Microsoft has a series of eight whitepapers on Rights Management Services (RMS) that can help you wrap your head around the options available for protecting sensitive information.
