MS SharePoint Syntex explained: All you need to know about this content intelligence service

In late 2020, Microsoft released SharePoint Syntex. A Microsoft 365 content service, SharePoint Syntex adds Artificial Intelligence content service capabilities to SharePoint document libraries, creating content understanding models that automatically classify the many and various documents in those libraries. Essentially SharePoint Syntex enables businesses to efficiently use the information stored in its documents.

Right now, as a global tightening of the belt takes place, anything that optimises your organisation’s ability to make the most of its hard-earned collective intelligence and to improve productivity, is going to be attracting greater attention.

(Ha. Who would have thought that SharePoint document libraries would become a sexy tech topic – again?)

Why We Aren’t Waiting for Microsoft Teams Connect (aka Shared Channels)

I was pleased to hear at MS Ignite in early November that Microsoft Teams Connect (aka Shared Channels) will be made generally available in 2022. Pleased, that is, because it’s a sign that it’s time for us to shine the light on Atlas Extranet

In this fast-paced world, Atlas Extranet is a feature ClearPeople developed and launched in Q1 of 2021. It’s a bit like Cinderella, working reliably in the background, waiting for the grand ball. 

Microsoft Teams & Viva: the new central hub for company culture and employee wellbeing
