Low Code In The Workplace
Low Code/No Code. A trendy topic. Everything needs to be faster, easier, and cheaper. And low code is a player in that arena. It aims to get the power of building applications into the hands of those close to the business process.  It's a great concept, but has its challenges. In this episode we'll talk about who Low Code is good for, who might want to use it, and give you some strategy for how to use Low Code tools at your organization. Please enjoy the conversation between Mike Bodell and Mitch Herrema.

The Champions Model Moves Organizations Forward
If you're looking for a way to roll out new technology or new ideas and really get some momentum behind them at your organization, you should consider the Champions Model. The Champions Model involves building a team around the idea that new ideas are great, but need to be vetted before launching to the whole organization. The Champions Team is able to easily validate the ideas, give feedback, and have a balanced mindset on how the new concepts should be used. We're going to dig a bit more into this model, talk about the pros and cons, and help you identify who the Champions on your team should be.  Please enjoy the conversation with Mike Bodell and Matt Dressel.

Should You Hire In House for Office 365 Help?
Our focus today is around hiring consultants to help you with initiatives in your organization. Should you be looking for a company/expert to help? Should you hire someone on your team internally? And what information do you need in order to make this decision? We’re going to target Office 365 today, but a lot of this thinking is “agnostic” to the specific technology. And full disclosure, we offer O365 services, but this podcast isn’t about us, it’s about helping you find your way when you have business goals that may require some technology behind the effort. So please enjoy the conversation between Matt Dressel, Mike Bodell, and Mitch Herrema.

Iterative Intranets
We've built our fair share of intranets over the years, and we've noticed many of our clients like the idea of the "big bang" launch where they can celebrate and have an event for the launch of the intranet. We're all about celebrating, but the process of actuallly getting all the pieces in place and keeping it all up to date while the intranet is being built is a lot of work. So we have a few ideas around this topic, and why you might want to consider a phased approach to your intranet launch. Please enjoy the conversation with Mike Bodell and Matt Dressel.

What is a Modern Workplace?
What really is a Modern Workplace? Being a “Modern Workplace” can mean a lot of things, but there’s one thing that’s certain - it’s always a moving target. We’ll be talking through our 3 areas of focus: Communication, Collaboration, and Business Applications, and give a glimpse into what we see those areas looking like in a “Modern Workplace”, as well as a little history on where they’ve come from. While we do talk about some specific technologies, know that these can be applied “agnostically” independent of a specific technology. It’s more about culture and mindset than anything. So let’s get into it - Please enjoy the conversation with Matt Dressel, Mike Bodell, and Mitch Herrema.

Ownership of Resources in the M365 Power Platform
Today we’re going to be digging into the Power Platform in Microsoft 365 a little bit, specifically creating resources in Power Automate and Power Apps. Who should be the owner of these things? Should we be using a service account? What happens if the owner of these resources leaves the company? If you are the Power Platform Admin at your organization, this one is for you. We’re going to be answering all these questions, and give you a few recommendations for how to best manage resources in the Power Platform. Please enjoy the conversation with Matt Dressel, Ashley Jolman, and myself.

Making Technology Services Approachable With Productized Services
Have you ever been on a website that offers technical services you need, and all you find are flashy case studies, as well as pages that list all these great benefits you’ll get from working with them? Everything looks great until you start looking for pricing. It’s nowhere to be found. All you see is a big “contact us” button, or "schedule a demo". Odds are, things stop right there. You’ll have to get on the phone with a salesperson who is driving to close the sale, which is never fun. We’ve been working to challenge this process, and give someone browsing our site all the information they need before they get in touch through the use of productized services. Today we'll be chatting today with Mitch Herrema (Operations), Ashley Jolman (our delivery lead), and Mike Bodell to dig into this topic and understand some of the benefits we’re seeing through the use of productized services.
