SKILLS & TRICKS
Last night was a long one and i was up and about till 2 AM in the morning looking at my laptop screen with amazement and some skeptical approach to the new features been presented at SharePoint Conference 2018 at Las Vegas.

So here is my post on what was shared and whats coming in future when it comes to Digital Workplace through Microsoft SharePoint and Office 365.
Statistics on SharePoint
How does SharePoint relate to the rest of the Microsoft offering:
1. Find your Files in Office 365
All about intelligent file recommendations and search results
2. Personalized Office.com
3. Organizational Page and News Management
4. SharePoint Spaces
5. New Capabilities for One Drive (Click the link)
6. Intranet in Office 365 (Click the link)
7. Training Portal
Now you will be able to have a Training Portal OOTB and it will be automatically update with all the latest content for your Users on how to work with Office 365 and SharePoint Online.
I am not sure how much it will address the customization scenarios but definitely a good starting point for your users to get acquainted with different products and happy go lucky flow.
8. Security and Governance
Unfortunately i did see any promising when it comes to Governance and Security though some good features are introduced but most of us already have a number of issues when it comes to permissions and Groups in O 365 which maybe addressed later by Microsoft.
SharePoint Admin Center: Now you will be able to see every SharePoint site in your tenant, all of which is searchable and can be managed directly. I did not see a complete working demo of how we can empower the employee with content and still keep track of changes.
Geo-locations: This was announced a few months back and now you can store your data where it needs to reside, and keep it there with automatic geo-location based on users. I wonder what will happen if different users have different policies under each company? How will we address this is still a question which needs to be answered, of course the happy flow looks promising.
