微软本周在线举办了年度会议。为开发人员提供主题演讲,小组讨论,数字分组讨论和研讨会的平台。但这并没有减慢新闻的传播速度。从用于Office协作的新框架和用于医疗保健的云产品到一台人工智能AI超级计算机,Microsoft发挥了一些重要的技术力量。该公司在云端和机器学习方面的投资已开始交付真正的产品。

企业仍然是其软件产品的主要目标,例如Outlook,Office,Team和SharePoint。 Microsoft一直在努力使其365服务更强大。它在去年宣布了Fluid Framework,承诺建立协作生态系统,以消除Excel电子表格,Word文档和PowerPoint幻灯片之间的差异。这些文件类型将不复存在,而您将在同一个工作空间中简单地使用这些格式的各种功能。这是一个大胆的主张,但有潜力推动微软的生产力软件领先于谷歌。在大会上,该公司宣布将在未来几个月内推出Fluid框架。

如果您处于“目标发布”周期,则将是最早在Office.com和Web上的Outlook中尝试此操作的人之一。使用新格式,您将能够启动所需的任何Office应用程序(例如Excel或Word),并引入诸如图表,表格或任务列表之类的Fluid组件。

这些组件将实时随地保持更新,因此,如果您在从现有电子表格中提取的表格中编辑单元格,则该值将保存在它存在的每个位置。您还可以与其他人实时协作处理这些文件。这些组件可以插入到电子邮件中,甚至可以插入到Microsoft Teams之类的聊天应用中。该公司还宣布,Fluid Framework将是开源的,因此您将来可能还会看到第三方应用程序使用这些功能。

微软还宣布了一个新的Lists应用,该应用基于SharePoint中现有的Lists功能。项目管理工具可让您使用Microsoft服务中的清单来跟踪进度,还可以从Teams等聊天应用程序中创建新的任务清单。您还可以从应用程序的其他位置导入现有列表,以供会议室中的人员进行评论和编辑。您的同事可以在完整列表和单个项目中进行调整或留下建议。

随着Microsoft继续构建和增强其生产力软件套件,它也在寻找与更多组织接触的方法。本周,该公司宣布了其首个行业云产品,这是针对特定行业设计的一组工具。微软从Cloud for Healthcare开始,考虑到该国对远程医疗的重视,非常聪明和及时。

这项新服务使医务人员不仅可以使用Microsoft的Teams和Healthcare Bot Service等各种工具,还可以让患者在系统上来进行预约和转诊。在团队内部,医疗保健提供者还可以进行符合HIPAA要求的远程医疗访问,并进行后续护理。患者门户网站还将使在各种设备上管理看诊预约和支付账单,并发送提醒,让这一切变得更加容易打理。

提供者还可以使用Cloud for Healthcare来通过预防和护理管理计划与患者联系。借助Azure IoT集成,他们还可以实时从医疗设备远程接收数据,以在需要时升级护理并快速响应紧急情况。

听起来,这将是一种全面管理医疗保健业务的方法,考虑到美国在这一方面的零散状况,这将是受欢迎的新闻。

This week Microsoft hosted its annual Build conference completely online. That meant streaming keynotes, panels, digital breakouts and workshops for developers. But that didn’t slow down the flow of news. From a new framework for Office collaboration and a Cloud offering for Healthcare to an AI supercomputer, Microsoft flexed some serious tech muscle. The company’s investments in cloud and machine learning are starting to deliver real products.

Businesses continue to be the main target of its software offerings -- things like Outlook, Office, Teams and SharePoint. Microsoft has been working to make its 365 services more powerful. It announced Fluid Framework last year, promising a collaboration ecosystem that does away with distinctions between Excel spreadsheets, Word documents and PowerPoint slides altogether. Those file types will cease to exist, and instead you’ll simply use bits and pieces of these formats in the same workspace. It’s a bold proposition, but one with the potential to propel Microsoft’s productivity software ahead of Google’s. At Build, the company announced it will be rolling out the Fluid Framework in the next few months.

If you’re on the Targeted Release cycle, you’ll be one of the first people to try this out in Office.com and Outlook for the web. In the new format, you’ll be able to start whichever Office app you want -- say Excel or Word, for example -- and pull in Fluid components like charts, tables or task lists.

These components will stay updated wherever they are, so if you edit a cell in a table you pulled from an existing spreadsheet, the value will save in every place it exists. You’ll also be able to collaborate on these files in real time with others, too. These components can be inserted into emails or even a chat app like Microsoft’s Teams. The company also announced that Fluid Framework will be open-source, so you might see third-party apps make use of these features in future too.

Microsoft also announced a new Lists app that’s based on the existing Lists feature in SharePoint. The project management tool will let you track your progress using checklists across Microsoft’s services, and you can create new to-do lists from within chat apps like Teams, too. You’ll also be able to import existing lists from elsewhere in the app for people in the room to comment and edit. Your coworkers can tweak or leave suggestions on both the full list and individual items in it as well. There’s also conditional formatting so you can have background or font colors change when items are checked off, or have the icons update based on specific situations.

As Microsoft continues to build out and enhance its suite of productivity software, it’s also eyeing ways to reach more organizations. This week, the company announced its first Industry Cloud offering, which is a set of tools designed for specific industries. Microsoft is starting with Cloud for Healthcare, which is pretty smart and timely given the country’s pivot to telehealth.

The new service offers medical workers access to a range of tools like Microsoft’s Teams and Healthcare Bot Service, in addition to patient engagement portals and systems for booking appointments and making referrals. Within Teams, health care providers can also conduct HIPAA-compliant telehealth visits and follow up on aftercare. The patient portals will also make it easier to manage appointment bookings, send reminders and make bill payments across various devices.

Providers can also use Cloud for Healthcare to reach out to patients with preventative and care management programs. With Azure IoT integration, they can also remotely receive data from medical devices in real time to escalate care when needed and respond quickly to emergency situations.

It all sounds like a comprehensive, well-rounded way to manage most of the aspects of running a health care business, which, given how fragmented America’s infrastructure is on this front, is welcome news.
