Inside Xbox Episode 5 News Recap – Xbox Wire

Earlier today Inside Xbox Episode 5 aired, continuing to pull back the curtain on Team Xbox to celebrate our games, features, and fans. This episode was full of closer looks at some big upcoming games, including No Man’s Sky, We Happy Few, and Earthfall, as well as the announcement of a huge addition to Xbox Game Pass. So, without further ado, let’s take a closer look at some of the biggest news coming out of this month’s episode of Inside Xbox.

Rocket League and Warhammer: Vermintide 2 are Coming to Xbox Game Pass

The Xbox Game Pass catalog continues to grow this week, thanks to the addition of a couple of awesome titles. First up, the much-loved Rocket League, which blends elements of soccer, racing, and demolition derbies together to create a wonderful whole, hits Xbox Game Pass today. Then, tomorrow, Warhammer: Vermintide 2 brings its mix of over-the-top gore and first-person hacking and slashing to the service.

The Sport White Special Edition Xbox One Controller

Featuring beautiful, clean lines and a snazzy design, the latest addition to the Xbox One controller family is a looker. Inspired by sports and sneakers, the Sport White’s got mint green accents and grey and silver patterns to go along with its fresh white design. If you’re a sneaker head, you’ll definitely want one of these. You can snag this sporty beauty at the Microsoft Store and other retailers beginning July 31st in the U.S. and Canada, and then worldwide on August 7th.

A Closer Look at No Man’s Sky

The highly-anticipated space exploration game No Man’s Sky is hitting Xbox One on July 24, so we had Hello Games founder Sean Murray on to share a bit about how excited the team is to be bringing the game to our consoles. He also showed a new video created by the team that breaks down 11 new features, from freighters to alien sidekicks, added to the game since its initial launch, all of which will be available when the game launches on Xbox One.

We Happy Few Adds a Story Mode

The Inside Xbox team was joined by Guillaume Provost from Compulsion Games, the latest studio to join the Microsoft Studios family. Guillaume showed off We Happy Few’s new story mode for the first time, sharing that you’ll be able to see events in the game from multiple perspectives as you play. This is going to be one wild ride, and we can’t wait to see more when the game releases in August.

Surviving an Alien Invasion in Earthfall

Coming to join us from their studio just up the road in Bellevue, the team from developer Holospark gave us a closer look at the upcoming game Earthfall, which releases this coming Friday, July 13. Earthfall is a four-player co-op shooter that tasks players with surviving an alien invasion, and it looks like a blast. Even better, the guys announced that all maps and additions to the game will be absolutely free to anyone who purchases it. There will also be Mixer integration, so save up that Spark to help your friends!

Seasons Change in Forza Horizon 4

To close out the show, the team was joined by some familiar faces from Playground Games, who came on to give fans a closer at this highly-anticipated (and absolutely gorgeous) Xbox One racing game. This segment lead into a special live-stream on mixer.com/forzamotorsport , where the team at Playground Games highlighted the summer season, including interviews with the team and community Q&A.

Thanks to everyone who tuned in! We hope you enjoyed the show and we can’t wait to tell you all about next month’s episode in a few weeks.

News roundup: TriNet software targets professional services

The theme of this news roundup is specialization: professional services HR, an effort to pull together a comprehensive benefits plan and a payroll offering aimed at the gig economy.

The debut of TriNet software for professional services HR is an effort to provide a platform for small and medium-sized businesses that caters to specific HR needs. TriNet Professional Services “is a bundle more relevant to what a small consulting company owner or an ad agency owner or any type of business depending on people to deliver a service would need,” explained Jimmy Franzone, senior vice president of strategy at TriNet, based in San Leandro, Calif. The new product joins other vertical TriNet software aimed at technology, nonprofits, life sciences and financial services.

In thinking about what the issues are around professional services HR, Franzone said the company bundled in a lot of applications that are ancillary in some other products, but should be important to this demographic. Expense management, performance management, application tracking and a variety of payroll-related tasks are at the core of the professional services package, Franzone said, because they are areas busy consultants, certified public accountants or lawyers would want to easily access.

TriNet’s heavy investment in its mobile application should also work nicely for those looking for professional services HR, Franzone said. “Mobile is a huge driver from the client side, especially in professional services,” he said. “We’re finding, in some ways, the professional services HR [market] is more mobile-enabled than tech or financial services firm employees who are always at a desk. Consulting firms and ad agencies are working outside of their desks. The need to be able to access data is critical to what they do.”

The new TriNet software is supported by a client services team that specializes in professional services HR, Franzone said. “They understand how those businesses work, what questions to ask, and what the trials and tribulations are.”

BenefitsPlace: All employee options on one platform

BenefitsPlace, a new platform from Benefitfocus, has a lofty goal: “We want to unify the entire benefits industry on one platform,” said Tom Dugan, vice president of product management at Benefitfocus, based in Charleston, S.C.

“We want the platform to show carriers’ insurance, life products and critical illness plans, as well as the emergent benefits that are focused on noninsurance products, like ID theft protection and concierge healthcare,” he continued. “We want to onboard all types of sellers’ products to make it easy for brokers to evaluate those sellers’ products and for employers to evaluate and make choices.”

BenefitsPlace won’t just offer the choices, Dugan stressed, but it will also present information around the offerings, so employers and consumers can make informed decisions about their benefits.

The average Benefitfocus customer offers 15 different benefits, and 20% of its clients offer 20 or more, Dugan said. So, the choices can be overwhelming to both employers and employees.

“We want to remove friction from the process,” he said. “We want to help people really understand what’s available, and it’s only getting more difficult when new products come in. We want to help consumers navigate those choices.”

An easier small-business payday process?

In the gig economy, small businesses can struggle with the prospect of payday happening potentially daily. Intuit’s QuickBooks just announced new payroll software options to help small businesses more easily deal with short-term employees who expect to be paid the day they work.

Contractor Direct Deposit brings “drop in the bank account” payment options to small businesses and syncs up with QuickBooks, so everything is streamlined at tax time. Same Day Direct Deposit is a new option in QuickBooks Full Service Payroll, and it’s an alternate way to pay contractors or freelancers more quickly and stay on top of expenses.

Why keep that server after an Exchange Online migration?

Think it’s time to pull the plug on that faithful Exchange Server setup after an Exchange Online migration? Not…

so fast.

Exchange Server mailboxes that stay in the data center give administrators some flexibility — there’s no need to push everything into the cloud and toss the key — and some Exchange-related functions can perform better on premises.

Here are four reasons to explore an Office 365 hybrid deployment instead of a complete Exchange Online migration.

Hybrid setup provides a mailbox choice

Some businesses prefer the option to keep a few mailboxes on the on-premises Exchange Server and maintain that system rather than rebuild the connection from scratch. A hybrid deployment lets a business natively offboard mailboxes from the Microsoft cloud back to the on-premises Exchange Server. Admins use the remote move migration wizard on the Office 365 tab in the Exchange admin center to send mailboxes to the data center. Without a hybrid setup, the administrator must create new mailboxes and import user information.

Address the large public folder problem

An IT team can sink a lot of time and effort into a comprehensive plan to move large Exchange public folders into Office 365. However, once mailboxes move to the cloud, they can still retain a connection to the on-premises public folders. This means a company can execute its Exchange Online migration but delay the public folder redeployment until a later date — or keep the public folder in the data center if the migration project isn’t feasible.

Don’t forget about application relay

Many businesses routinely use application servers in the data center to relay email messages through Exchange Server. Exchange Online supports message relays from on-premises application servers, but there are throughput limits on the cloud platform. If the message throughput exceeds Exchange Online’s cap, the application servers will need Exchange on-premises infrastructure to handle the load.

Hybrid arrangement can ease management

Some organizations use directory synchronization between Active Directory on premises and Azure AD. In this scenario, the source of authority for directory objects in Azure AD remains with the server that runs AD in the data center. Microsoft recommends admins maintain at least one on-premises Exchange Server after the migration for ongoing management of mail-enabled objects in Exchange Online, such as user mailboxes.
