Kirk Koenigsbauer, Corporate Vice President for Microsoft 365, is giving us all the details on what’s to expect with their new updates.
Add data to excel with a snap
Data encoding has always been a tedious and time-consuming task but entirely necessary to accomplish tasks. Microsoft 365 is here to do the nitty gritty and cut the time spent in encoding data.
The Excel Application only needs you to take a picture! People can now take a picture of a printed data table on any Android device, and it automatically converts the image into a fully editable table in Excel.
This new image recognition functionality eliminates the need to enter hardcopy data manually.
This capability is starting to roll out for the Excel Android app with iOS support coming soon.
Microsoft 365 is advancing security
Microsoft 365 has started rolling out additional security features to help users stay ahead of threats, create a more productive workplace, and keep you in the flow of work.
New features and services help create a better way for its users to manage a complex threat landscape and to communicate and collaborate securely.
With Microsoft Threat Experts, a new managed threat-hunting service, helps to proactively hunt and prioritize threats to maximize the Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection (ATP).
This service grants users access to world-class experts that can help find solutions and work through tough investigation challenges.
This can be accessed through the new Ask a Threat Expert button.
Receive security notifications for important events on your personal Microsoft account now via the Microsoft Authenticator app.
When you receive a push notification, you can quickly view your account activity and take actions to protect your account if needed.
There’s also a new update where Microsoft Authenticator can also be used to add two-step verification to your account for added security.

To address these challenges, today we are announcing new capabilities in Microsoft Teams that empower care teams and enable healthcare organizations to securely collaborate and communicate. Built on the secure, compliant Microsoft 365 cloud, Teams gives all healthcare workers a familiar way to communicate in real-time, coordinate patient care, and improve operational efficiencies.
New advanced messaging features include priority notifications for urgent messages and message delegation to securely manage urgent patient care. In addition, new platform enhancements provide the ability to integrate electronic health records for care coordination and make Teams an even more powerful hub for health team collaboration.”
