Thanks to cloud technology, researchers can take advantage of faster, more advanced and more scalable resources that enable them to perform tasks that they can’t manage using in-house resources. The cloud also enables scientists to quickly run tests across a variety of platforms and virtual machines with different specifications, which can aid rapid prototyping, interoperability testing, and performance testing. A cloud solution can also provide researchers with ways to augment their existing resources by handling peaks in demand and reducing competition for local resources, when multiple teams are working toward an upcoming deadline. By reducing dependence on on-site computing, research projects can increase efficiency and scalability, and deliver greater results faster.

Business.com named Microsoft Teams the best video conferencing service in 2020: “What truly makes this service appealing is its integration with other Microsoft Office applications. If you already use Word, Excel and Outlook, integrating Teams into your workflow is a simple process. Considering everything you get access to, this is one of the most affordable video conferencing services we found in our research.” Businesses don’t need a chat feature or other stand-alone services—they need to be able to perform their tasks while having access to their files—they need integration. This is what Teams provides, and at an affordable price.
View this video and see how integration and affordability enabled the education department in New South Wales to put a device in every pair of hands.
At Microsoft’s annual Build developer conference, there were several updates announced for Microsoft Teams. According to veteran participant and Forbes contributor Patrick Moorhead, the integration of Teams with Microsoft Power Platform “was the biggest story out of the conference this year, as it turns Teams into essentially a full-blown platform. With the lack of developers globally, I think this combination could enable some very powerful capabilities.”
Power BI is also getting further integrated into Teams, notes Moorhead. Users will be able to import and share reports, or merely charts from reports, from the new ‘Share to Teams’ button in the Power BI portal. “Additionally, when a chart is shared to a Teams conversation it will now include a rich thumbnail preview, and an adaptive card that Microsoft says will enable users to take action on said chart,” writes Moorhead.
There’s lots more to take note of for the improvements around Microsoft Teams and its far-reaching capabilities. Read Moorhead’s entire article, “Spotlight on ‘Teams as a Platform’ at Virtual Microsoft Build 2020” for an overview of these developments.
