How to Integrate ECM with ERP in Your Workplace

Posted on

Microsoft SharePoint is incredibly versatile as it provides various functions which are traditionally separate applications: intranet, extranet, content management, document management, personal cloud, enterprise social networking, enterprise search, business intelligence, workflow management, and more.

Organizations have been trying to digitize and automate their AP processes since the first scanner even appeared. Though, digitizing documents is usually the first step, we see that time and time again organizations either have a standalone solution, or those eager to advance have tried to acquire high quality scanners thinking at least they’ll have scanned copies, and they can see their invoices stored somewhere on their desktops, then sending multiple versions through emails and in the end, they have even more of a mess than what they began with when it originated from only a single hardcopy.

Adventures in High Speed Networking on Azure

Posted on

The ASP.NET team have been testing experimental server designs in their Smurf Lab and recently moved it to a 10GbE network. We quickly created a http echo server based on similar principles to our game server networking; hoping to validate whether there was any inherent “cost” in using managed C# rather than a lower level, closer to the metal, language.


f we can go from an empty cache browser request in Europe to East Coast US and back – twice; a total distance of over 17,400 miles / 28,000km, though load balancers, on regular ASP.NET 4.6 (rather than the leaner newer ASP.NET 5) in the Azure cloud to web page complete for a 238 KB website in under 363ms (favicon.ico ignored); then there is something very, very wrong with those latencies for a simple “Hello, World!” response under 200 bytes; presumably between VMs in the same datacenter! And this is prior to applying of our more recent learnings from this testing, which we shall obviously be doing now!

Leveraging the OMS Search API in an Azure Automation Runbook

Posted on

The availability of the OMS Search API has enabled automation scenarios which involves alerting, notification and potential remediation based on log analytics data in Operations Management Suite (OMS).

In this blog post we will talk about a sample scenario for monitoring a honeypot account with an Azure Automation runbook . This runbook checks if someone has attempted to logon with this account on a specific server.

Our runbook will talk to the OMS Search API and is able to execute searches or can retrieve the results of a saved search. Based on the query results we can decide to take corrective actions or to invoke other runbooks for alerting and notification purposes.  During conversations with customers we have been asked many times if OMS has similar System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) task integration to take actions based on OMS search query results.

Posted on

Managing mobile devices connecting to OneDrive for Business data

As more people move to OneDrive for Business to store and access their files, email-based mobile device management (MDM) policies may not suffice to protect data. Now using MDM in Office 365, you can ensure that devices connecting to your OneDrive for Business data are managed. After you’ve set up MDM policies, a device will need to enroll in MDM for Office 365 when it tries to connect to your data using OneDrive for Business or Office Mobile apps. This ensures that the device meets security requirements, enforces PIN log-in and other chosen configurations on the device.

PowerShell to the Rescue

Posted on

Since my early days working in MS-DOS, I have enjoyed the tricks of shell-programming or shell-scripting. Being able to tell a machine to do a set of sequential actions in one go, often repetitive tasks, can be a life saver, and sometimes, a way to do something that other APIs won’t allow.

This post will focus on Power Shell, specially oriented for the SharePoint ecosystem.sharepoint
