Launch of Microsoft Teams, consumer Skype integration delayed

Microsoft has again delayed the integration between Microsoft Teams and the consumer version of Skype. The company now plans to release the feature sometime between April and June, after previously saying it would go live this month.

Businesses have already waited more than three years for interoperability between Teams and consumer Skype. Some have complained that the feature’s absence has prevented their organizations from fully migrating from Skype for Business to Teams.

The integration will let users of Teams and consumer Skype message and call one another. Skype for Business has offered interoperability with consumer Skype for years. Many organizations rely on the feature to communicate with external contacts.

The lack of integration with consumer Skype underscores that Teams is still missing features available in Skype for Business, Raúl Castañón-Martinez, analyst at 451 Research, said. The feature gap persists despite Microsoft declaring in 2018 that the two apps had achieved feature parity.

Castañón-Martinez found it odd that Microsoft would push Skype for Business customers to upgrade to Teams yet fail to make it equal to the older application. “It seems like this consumer Skype integration should be a top priority for Microsoft,” he said.

A Microsoft representative declined to comment on what prompted the delay.

Microsoft is trailing competitors when it comes to enabling external collaboration within Teams, Castañón-Martinez said.

Although it supports one-to-one chats across company boundaries, Teams does not give organizations the ability to create common groups or channels for collaborating with external users. Slack supports such a setup through a feature called shared channels. 

More than 3,000 people have endorsed a request for consumer Skype integration on Microsoft’s user feedback website for Teams. Microsoft once said the feature could launch as soon as the second quarter of 2018 but shelved the item in May 2018 because of a “priority shift.”

In December, Microsoft updated its roadmap to indicate the feature would launch in January. But the company changed course this week, pushing the feature off until sometime in the second quarter of 2020.

Microsoft has struggled to meet deadlines for launching Teams features in the past. Last year, the company delayed the launch of private channels in Teams by roughly two months. The postponement came after users had been demanding the feature for more than two years.

The company has scheduled more than two dozen additional items on its roadmap for Teams. Meanwhile, the company has yet to announce release dates for several other features in high demand by users. Those include accessing Office 365 group calendars in Teams and the ability to archive channels.

Healthcare CIOs put on alert for potential Iran cyberattacks

Tensions between the U.S. and Iran are prompting concerns about possible Iranian cyberattacks against critical U.S. infrastructure and raising questions about how prepared healthcare systems are to handle them.

The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) issued an alert Monday for critical infrastructure systems such as healthcare systems. The agency warned of potential Iran cyberattacks in response to the U.S. military strike that killed General Qassem Soleimani. The Health Information Sharing and Analysis Center, a non-profit organization focused on enhancing healthcare cybersecurity that keeps tabs on threats to the industry, followed suit.

Iran has not historically targeted U.S. health systems. It has opted instead for targets that would drive greater economic influence. But Caleb Barlow, president and CEO of Austin, Texas-based healthcare cybersecurity firm CynergisTek, said that may be changing.

Caleb BarlowCaleb Barlow

“This isn’t a point of scaring the living daylights out of people and saying, ‘Hey, the Iranians are going to attack healthcare.’ That’s not what we’re saying at all,” he said. “What we are saying, however, is that the threat landscape just changed dramatically in the last week. The likelihood that a foreign actor — or someone sympathetic to a foreign actor — may try to impact U.S. critical infrastructure, which includes healthcare, and may use known means that work, are very high.” 

CISA recommended that industries including healthcare increase awareness and organizational vigilance around cyberthreats. Beyond the potential for an Iranian cyberattack, healthcare CIOs should prepare their organizations for destructive malware attacks.

A growing threat

Iranian cyber threat actors continue to engage in more “conventional” attacks such as website defacement and theft of personally identifiable information, but they have continuously improved their cyberattack capabilities and shown a “willingness to push the boundaries of activities,” according to the CISA alert.

The likelihood that a foreign actor, or someone sympathetic to a foreign actor, may try to impact U.S. critical infrastructure, which includes healthcare, and may use known means that work, are very high.
Caleb BarlowPresident and CEO, CynergisTek

Barlow said Iranian cyber threat actors are known for destructive wiper attacks, which he described as “ransomware on steroids.” The number of known wiper attacks is small, but they can be devastating, according to Barlow. IBM X-Force Incident Response and Intelligence Services found destructive malware attacks destroyed about 12,000 devices and cost organizations more than $200 million on average.

Due to recent tensions, Iranian cyberattacks may be shifting away from targets that could provide economic influence to cyberattacks that could provide political influence. Coupled with the threat of destructive wiper attacks, healthcare CIOs should be on high alert.

How healthcare CIOs can respond

Barlow said healthcare security teams need to rethink their response plans.

“This isn’t just about prevention,” he said. “This is also about, can you maintain the resiliency of your business — whether it’s manufacturing, a hospital, or state or local government — without your IT systems? How would you do it? How would you recover it? And how would you get started?”

Healthcare organizations likely have plans for cybersecurity incidents; most start with calling their insurance company. But many cyber insurance policies do not cover the actions of a foreign nation, according to Barlow.

Healthcare organizations are also unprepared for handling ransomware, malware that locks data until a ransom is paid, and often pay the fine to regain access to their data and systems, according to Barlow. But paying a ransom won’t be an option if they’re hit by a destructive wiper attack.  

“With a destructive attack, you don’t have that option, it’s just gone,” Barlow said. “If you don’t have a plan in place to maintain resiliency, so is your institution.”

David ChouDavid Chou

Wiper attacks can destroy everything, according to David Chou, vice president and principal analyst at Constellation Research in Cupertino, Calif. He stressed that even without a potential increase in Iranian cyberattacks, healthcare and government are targets. That’s why organizations like the Health Information Sharing and Analysis Center (H-ISAC) have issued a call to action to become better prepared for ransomware as well as destructive wiper attacks.

“The healthcare industry has to prepare for wiper, which is definitely something that can be serious and potentially wipe out the business of a hospital,” Chou said.

CISA recommended healthcare organizations focus on vulnerability mitigation and incident preparation, which includes taking steps to disable unnecessary ports and protocols, increase monitoring of email and network traffic, and ensure backups are updated and stored in a separate, but easily retrievable, location from the organization.

Chou said H-ISAC recommends backing up data and keeping systems updated, which he said should be done as good practice regardless of the current state of high alert.

For Sale – Chromebook – Acer C730E

Hi, excuse my ignorance but what’s the difference between a chrome book and a laptop?

Main difference is that it runs ChromeOS, which is based on unix/Linux.
You cannot install Windows, so it relies onthe Google online Tools, such as Drive, Sheets, Keep, etc.

Storage is 16Gb. They are meant to do basic note-taking, emails and light work for documents/sheets.
They handle 1080p pretty well.

Xbox text filters

Last month, we detailed our vision for Xbox Live content filtration as part of our commitment to responsible gaming on Xbox. In the November 2019 Xbox Update, you can set your own specific level of automated filtration so you can decide what’s acceptable and what isn’t in the text-based messages you receive across Xbox Live. Filter levels can be customized based on four tiers of filtration – Friendly, Medium, Mature and Unfiltered. And as always, if you receive a message that violates our Community Standards for Xbox, even with filters in place, you can still report this conduct to Xbox Enforcement for follow up.

On your console, you can configure your message safety by going to Settings > General > Online safety & family > Privacy & online safety > Message safety. Whenever you receive a message that’s beyond your safety setting, it’ll be replaced with a [Potentially offensive message hidden] placeholder. You can click on that placeholder to learn more about the settings, and there’s a handy shortcut to go change those settings. Adult accounts will have the ability to choose whether to see what content has been filtered based on the filter they choose. To learn more about how to setup this feature, check out our video walkthrough.

What are the Azure Stack HCI features?

IT shops that want tighter integration between the Windows Server OS and an HCI platform have a few choices in the market, including Azure Stack HCI.

Microsoft offers two similarly named but different offerings. Microsoft markets Azure Stack as a local extension to the cloud, essentially Azure in a box that runs in the data center. The company positions Azure Stack HCI, announced in March 2019, as a highly available, software-defined platform for local VM workload deployments. Organizations can also use Azure Stack HCI to connect to Azure and use its various services, including backup and site recovery.

Azure Stack HCI is fundamentally composed of four layers: hardware, software, management and cloud services.

Who sells the hardware for Azure Stack HCI?

Azure Stack HCI capitalizes on the benefits associated with other HCI offerings, such as high levels of software-driven integration, and common and consistent management. OEM vendors, including Dell, Fujitsu, HPE and Lenovo, sell the Azure Stack HCI hardware that Microsoft validates. The hardware is typically integrated and modular, combining portions of compute, memory, storage and network capacity into each unit.

What OS does Azure Stack HCI use?

The Azure Stack HCI platform runs on the Windows Server 2019 Datacenter edition. Using this server OS provides the familiar Windows environment, but also brings core components of the HCI software stack, including Hyper-V for virtualization, Storage Spaces Direct for storage, and enhanced software-defined networking features in Microsoft’s latest server OS.

How is Azure Stack HCI managed?

Azure Stack HCI capitalizes on the benefits associated with other HCI offerings, such as high levels of software-driven integration, and common and consistent management.

A critical part of an HCI platform is the ability to provision and monitor every element, which means management is a crucial component of Azure Stack HCI. Organizations have several management options such as Windows Admin Center, System Center, PowerShell and numerous third-party tools. Management in Azure Stack HCI emphasizes the use of automation and orchestration, allowing greater speed and autonomy in provisioning and reporting.

What role does the Azure cloud play?

Organizations that purchase Azure Stack HCI have the option to connect to a wide range of Azure services. Some of these services include Azure Site Recovery for high availability and disaster recovery, Azure Monitor for comprehensive monitoring and analytics, Azure Backup for data protection, and Azure File Sync for server synchronization with the cloud.

What’s the primary use for Azure Stack HCI?

When exploring whether to purchase Azure Stack HCI, it’s important to understand its intended purpose. Unlike Azure Stack, Azure Stack HCI is not explicitly designed for use with the Azure cloud. Rather, Azure Stack HCI is an HCI platform tailored for on-premises virtualization for organizations that want to maximize the use of the hardware.

The decision to buy Azure Stack HCI should be based primarily on the same considerations involved with any other HCI system. For example, HCI might be the route to go when replacing aging hardware, optimizing the consolidation of virtualized workloads, and building out efficient edge or remote data center deployments that take up minimal space.

IT decision-makers should view the ability to utilize Azure cloud services that, while useful, are not the primary motivation to use Azure Stack HCI.

IFS, Acumatica take aim at top-tier ERP vendors — together

The not-quite-merger between IFS AB and Acumatica Inc. could result in a coalition that challenges top tier ERP vendors.

The two ERP vendors became corporate siblings in June when IFS’s owner, EQT Partners, acquired Acumatica. IFS board chairman Jonas Persson is expected to be chairman of both companies, but they will operate independently, according to Darren Roos, IFS CEO. Roos will serve on the Acumatica board.

IFS and Acumatica both sell manufacturing ERP products, but they serve different markets, which will lead to collaboration opportunities, according to Roos. The companies will not compete for the same customers.

Darren Roos, CEO, IFSDarren Roos

“There are loads of areas where IFS can bring value to Acumatica customers, and vice versa,” Roos said. “It’s a case of trying to sustain the growth in each of the businesses separately, while leveraging those opportunities to help each other.”

Based in Linkoping, Sweden, IFS targets large enterprises, with customers primarily in the aerospace and defense, energy and utilities, manufacturing, construction and services industries. Acumatica, based in Seattle, is a cloud-first ERP that targets mid-market companies. IFS is strongest in Europe and has a growing presence in North America, according to Roos.

Although Acumatica is about ten times smaller than IFS, each company can take advantage of the other’s strengths to grow and improve their products, according to Jon Roskill, Acumatica CEO. On the business side, IFS uses a direct sales approach while Acumatica sells through a value-added reseller channel network, Roskill explained. Acumatica can use IFS’s direct salesforce to expand into Europe, and IFS can use the Acumatica channel to grow its North American presence.

“In technology [Acumatica is] strong in cloud and cloud interfaces, and IFS is accelerating in that direction, so that’s a place where they can leverage some of Acumatica’s skills,” Roskill said. “IFS has a robust set of technologies in manufacturing and field service that are localized to many countries, so we think we can take some of that technology back to Acumatica.”

Sharing is good

Sharing resources makes sense for both companies, and the two companies are not likely to step on each other’s toes competitively, according to Cindy Jutras, president of Mint Jutras, an ERP analysis firm based in Windham, N.H.

“This is more about Acumatica than IFS. I don’t see a lot of overlap in target markets, but I think there will be some synergies here,” Jutras said. “IFS already has a strong solution in their target market — asset-intensive industries — which is not overly broad.”

Acumatica’s cloud-first origins should help IFS broaden its cloud deployment efforts, an area where it was relatively weak compared to some competitors, Jutras explained.

“As a cloud pioneer, Acumatica has developed a strong, scalable business model, while IFS lags behind many of its competitors in moving from [on-premises] solutions to delivering software as a service,” Jutras said in an analysis she wrote. “In this sense, IFS stands to gain more from Acumatica.”

Acumatica adds Phocas BI

Acumatica has added functionality through partnerships with independent software vendors (ISVs), and according to Roskill, there are more than 150 ISVs that have built integrations into Acumatica’s ERP platform. These include DocuSign for digital contract management and Smartsheet for collaborative workflow management, as well as Microsoft Power BI and Tableau for business intelligence (BI).

Acumatica recently added more BI capabilities via a partnership with Phocas Software, a cloud-based BI application designed specifically for manufacturing.

Jon Roskill, CEO, AcumaticaJon Roskill

Roskill described the Phocas partnership as a good fit for Acumatica because the two companies are aimed at a similar mid-market manufacturing base. Acumatica already has partnerships with some of the larger, more well-known BI platforms including Microsoft Power BI and Tableau, but Roskill said Phocas’ ease of use is an important factor for mid-market companies that may not be able to afford data analysts.

“You can do almost anything with Tableau, but you’ve got to put a lot of emphasis into your expertise,” he said. “The difference with Phocas is that it gets very specific manufacturing and distribution oriented analytics and lets you tune that out of the box.”

The goal of Phocas’ BI software is to take industry-specific data from ERP systems like Acumatica and “make it consumable for business professionals so they can make better data-driven decisions,” according to Jay Deubler, president of Phocas’ U.S. division.

“We’ve aligned ourselves with Acumatica, which is an ERP provider, for what we would call our perfect prospect profile in the mid-market business,” Deubler said. “Because we now have a pre-written integration, the implementation becomes much easier and less expensive for customers.”

Enterprises that use data will thrive; those that don’t, won’t

There’s a growing chasm between enterprises that use data, and those that don’t.

Wayne Eckerson, founder and principal consultant of Eckerson Group, calls it the data divide, and according to Eckerson, the companies that will thrive in the future are the ones that are already embracing business intelligence no matter the industry. They’re taking human bias out of the equation and replacing it with automated decision-making based on data and analytics.

Those that are data laggards, meanwhile, are already in a troublesome spot, and those that have not embraced analytics as part of their business model at all are simply outdated.

Eckerson has more than 25 years of experience in the BI industry and is the author of two books — Secrets of Analytical Leaders: Insights from Information Insiders and Performance Dashboards: Measuring, Monitoring, and Managing Your Business.  

In the first part of a two-part Q&A, Eckerson discusses the divide between enterprises that use data and those that don’t, as well as the importance of DataOps and data strategies and how they play into the data divide. In the second part, he talks about self-service analytics, the driving force behind the recent merger and acquisition deals, and what intrigues him about the future of BI.

How stark is the data divide, the gap between enterprises that use data and those that don’t?

Wayne Eckerson: It’s pretty stark. You’ve got data laggards on one side of that divide, and that’s most of the companies out there today, and then you have the data elite, the companies [that] were born on data, they live on data, they test everything they do, they automate decisions using data and analytics — those are the companies [that] are going to take the future. Those are the companies like Google and Amazon, but also companies like Netflix and its spinoffs like Stitch Fix. They’re heavily using algorithms in their business. Humans are littered with cognitive biases that distort our perception of what’s going on out there and make it hard for us to make objective, rational, smart decisions. This data divide is a really interesting thing I’m starting to see happening that’s separating out the companies [that] are going to be competitive in the future. I think companies are really racing, spending money on data technologies, data management, data analytics, AI.

How does a DataOps strategy play into the data divide?

Headshot of Wayne Eckerson, founder and principal consultant of Eckerson GroupWayne Eckerson

Eckerson: That’s really going to be the key to the future for a lot of these data laggards who are continually spending huge amounts of resources putting out data fires — trying to fix data defects, broken jobs, these bottlenecks in development that often come from issues like uncoordinated infrastructure for data, for security. There are so many things that prevent BI teams from moving quickly and building things effectively for the business, and a lot of it is because we’re still handcrafting applications rather than industrializing them with very disciplined routines and practices. DataOps is what these companies need — first and foremost it’s looking at all the areas that are holding the flow of data back, prioritizing those and attacking those points.

What can a sound DataOps strategy do to help laggards catch up?

Eckerson: It’s improving data quality, not just at the first go-around when you build something but continuous testing to make sure that nothing is broken and users are using clean, validated data. And after that, once you’ve fixed the quality of data and the business becomes more confident that you can deliver things that make sense to them, then you can use DataOps to accelerate cycle times and build more things faster. This whole DataOps thing is a set of development practices and testing practices and deployment and operational practices all rolled into a mindset of continuous improvement that the team as a whole has to buy into and work on. There’s not a lot of companies doing it yet, but it has a lot of promise.

Data strategy differs for each company given its individual needs, but as BI evolves and becomes more widespread, more intuitive, more necessary no matter the size of the organization and no matter the industry, what will be some of the chief tenets of data strategy going forward?

Eckerson: Today, companies are racing to implement data strategies because they realize they’re … data laggard[s]. In order to not be disrupted in this whole data transformation era, they need a strategy. They need a roadmap and a blueprint for how to build a more robust infrastructure for leveraging data, for internal use, for use with customers and suppliers, and also to embed data and analytics into the products that they build and deliver. The data strategy is a desire to catch up and avoid being disrupted, and also as a way to modernize because there’s been a big leap in the technologies that have been deployed in this area — the web, the cloud, big data, big data in the cloud, and now AI and the ability to move from reactive reporting to proactive predictions and to be able to make recommendations to users and customers on the spot. This is a huge transformation that companies have to go through, and so many of them are starting at zero.

So it’s all about the architecture?

Eckerson: A fundamental part of the data strategy is the data architecture, and that’s what a lot of companies focus on. In fact, for some companies the data strategy is synonymous with the data architecture, but that’s a little shortsighted because there are lots of other elements to a data strategy that are equally important. Those include the organization — the people and how they work together to deliver data capabilities and analytic capabilities — and the culture, because you can build an elegant architecture, you can buy and deploy the most sophisticated tools. But if you don’t have a culture of analytics, if people don’t have a mindset of using data to make decisions, to weigh options to optimize processes, then it’s all for naught. It’s the people, it’s the processes, it’s the organization, it’s the culture, and then, yes, it’s the technology and the architecture too.
