OneDrive and Microsoft Azure synchronisation
Windows 10 features automatic OneDrive synchronisation, allowing you to back up sensitive or important files away from your computer without needing to worry about it. It’s also handy that Dropbox also comes as standard as a native application.
With Windows 10, it is now possible to sync your login desktop with your Microsoft Office 365 account. This takes away the requirement for local domain controller server to manage profiles & accounts logins.
The return of the Start menu
If you’re a Windows 8.1 user or older you’ll be missing out on the new sleeker start menu that Windows 10 offers. Bringing back a similar menu to that of Windows 7, Windows 10’s menu is super easy to navigate and includes a useful Uninstall link directly on the Start menu, promoting efficient housekeeping of both desktop and Modern apps.
Unleash the power of Cortana
Cortana is Microsoft’s personal digital assistant. Cortana uses Artificial Intelligence and is a powerful tool and is able to configure tasks are specifically optimised for your business. By signing in with the Microsoft Azure AD Directory, your employees can utilise Cortana to access their enterprise identity, while getting all the functionalities provides to them outside of work.
Within work Cortana is able to initiate requests, complete tasks and anticipate future needs by surfacing relevant data in a personal context. For example once the phrase “Hey Cortana” is enabled on your devices, you can use your voice to tell the Microsoft Artifical Intelligence assistant to save reminders and much more for you.
Furthermore, you can dictate your notes directly to Cortana and then save them to OneNote for easy access later as well as asking Cortana to schedule meetings, set reminders and much more. For example, you can say to Cortana “Hey, Cortana, remind me to check my invoice status on Friday at 2:30 p.m.,” and when this specific date and time rolls around, Cortana will send you a reminder.
Organisations are also able Cortana’s skills by integrating their valuable business data into Microsoft Dynamics 365, Microsoft Azure and building a custom analytics solution with Cortana Intelligence.
There really is no better time to try it as Cortana’s Artificial Intelligence capabilities are ever evolving and it’s proving to be a very useful tool for organisations of all sizes. The built-in apps showcase what’s possible: for example if you instruct Cortana to email a colleague, the Mail app should pop up with the address field pre-populated for that person. Now that really is super efficiency…
