The cloud is a crucial part of Microsoft's future, and the success of Office 365 will be a crucial part of that. "Businesses moving to the cloud will find it extremely hard to migrate away from it, creating an exceptionally sticky business fueled by ongoing subscription revenues," said David Lavenda, VP of product strategy for harmon.ie. "And with Office Graph, which promises to deliver business intelligence from the cloud, Microsoft is likely to be the first to a new smart cloud offering, which will further drive growth."
"Microsoft is at a crossroads. By doubling down on Office 365 and effectively shedding the mobile device market (Nokia), Microsoft has clearly indicated it’s a cloud-first world and the Ballmer device-first, Windows-first dynasty is behind us," said David Lavenda, VP of product strategy for harmon.ie, referring to the regime of former Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer.
Enterprise mobility has exploded over the past decade, but its full promise remains just that – a promise
To organize your workday and make yourself more efficient, it’s important to focus on three aspects of your work life: time, space and mind-set, says David Lavenda, at Harmon.ie.
Today's changing workforce with more mobile and remote workers has meant changes in how enterprises collaborate between employees, partners and customers. When mobile devices are used as a primary or secondary collaboration tool, then you might have to crack the mobile collaboration code for your enterprise to make sure collaboration happens securely.
Businesses are on the brink of an enterprise ‘app-ocalypse’ driven by the advance of cloud services companies and their workforce have added to their arsenal in order to cater to customers and deliver amazing (often times contextual) experiences. Driven by a desire to improve service and performance these businesses are unwittingly creating a chaotic — even crippling — user experience for their workforce. David Lavenda tells how freedom of choice — which allows businesses to select the most appropriate cloud service for the task at hand — has created problems for the enterprise that only app and services consolidation can solve. - See more at: http://www.mobilegroove.com/consolidate-to-avoid-enterprise-app-ocalypse...
Israel-based Harmon.ie places your Microsoft document sharing and social conversations into a single app. I spoke with Yaacov Cohen, Harmon.ie's co-founder and CEO about BYOD, employee collaboration, mobile security, Harmon.ie's integrated conversation solution, and why some BYOD programs seem to fail.
Even as enterprise mobility and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) experience changes. I recently had a chance to speak with David Lavenda, technology strategist, Fast Company columnist, and vice president of product strategy for harmon.ie, a collaboration tools vendor.

Office Delve and Graph are works in progress: some things are done, but there's a lot more to do, Microsoft execs conceded at the Ignite conference in Chicago yesterday — even as they boasted of the speed of development.
Over the coming months we’ll see a lot of activity around connecting enterprise teams, the development of ‘Boards,’ the panes on which Graph information is displayed and the mobile experience, including the release of a Delve Windows Universal app.
Israel-based harmon.ie (pronounced “harmony”) announced yesterday at Microsoft Ignite its new channel partner program for the Office 365 community.
This product essentially brings a single pane of glass to access all Office 365 data stores from Microsoft Outlook or a mobile interface.
I’ll blog about my experience using its product another day, as it gives me simple access to SharePoint instead of the dreaded browser interface. Think of the Outlook snap-in as akin to running Microsoft Dynamics CRM from the CRM snap-in in Outlook and tagging/saving every e-mail, etc. More on the functionality later.
Adoption of Microsoft Office 365 continues to accelerate as companies embrace the cloud as a key pillar of today's digital workplace. harmon.ie, a proven enterprise collaboration leader, today announced its list of the top 25 Office 365 influencers. A natural extension of its past annual top 25 SharePoint influencers, this year's top list embodies the Microsoft ecosystem leaders' digital transformation to the cloud. Today's leaders go beyond on-premise SharePoint to play a critical role in helping businesses successfully embrace Office 365 as the cornerstone of their employee collaboration and productivity platform. The awards were announced at the 2015 Best of Breed Party on Tuesday night, hosted by Metalogix, and the full list of 2015 #O365Top25 winners will be available in harmon.ie booth #602 on Wednesday and Thursday.
harmon.ie, which puts all Microsoft collaboration tools on a single screen, plans to recruit more than 100 reseller partners this year to drive rapid growth in the SMB market.
The company on Wednesday launched its new Affiliate Partner Program, an expansion of its channel-partner program aimed at helping individual consultants and boutique consultancies “reap the benefits of the growing market for cloud and mobile tools" among SMBs.
Have you ever wondered if you rate as a mover or shaker in the Office 365 universe?" Well, now you have your answer, thanks to a just released list from Harmon.ie.
Harmon.ie, a company that creates software solutions to improve collaboration in the digital workplace, commissioned Scratch Marketing + Media to identify top Office 365 influencers.
Starting from a position that today’s mobile workforce does not need more tools, just better ones, Harmon.ie announced Collage, an app that brings data from multiple business application sources into a single view that can then be acted upon.
Email has a bad reputation for being the main cause of information overload; just look at the massive amounts of articles and studies devoted to the topic: According to a 2012 report from consulting firm McKinsey, reading and answering emails constitutes 28 per cent of an employee’s weekly work tasks. In a study of office workers in the U.K. a psychiatrist found that the average worker’s IQ fell by 10 points when they were distracted by email messages while working, the equivalent of missing an entire night of sleep.
Key features: Collage provides workers with the first ‘go-to’ app for the Digital Workplace, now uniting business/collaboration apps, topical email and documents into a contextual single-screen experience on iPhones and iPads.
Despite years of discussions on enterprise mobility and BYOD, there are very few real business use cases that demonstrate real ROI. While we have much to accomplish in our quest for the mobile enterprise, many lessons have already been learned; lessons we can apply moving forward.
The typical mobile user of Microsoft's collaboration tools — Office 365, SharePoint, Yammer and OneDrive — isn’t a social media maven, according to a survey of user habits. But he can't live without document access.
Microsoft's Office 365 and Apple's iOS devices are becoming the main tools of the mobile workforce.
That is the conclusion of a survey [pdf] of 1,500 business users who downloaded the harmon.ie Mobile app, which brings Microsoft collaboration tools into a single screen on Android, iOS and BlackBerry devices.
A new report suggests the most common activity among businesspeople using Microsoft collaboration tools is document sharing, and much of that activity occurs early in the week, on Monday and Tuesday.
The problem with mobile and social tools in the workplace is that they are all about distraction, says Yaacov Cohen, the co-founder of Harmon.ie, an Israeli-based company that is creating new social tools for the workplace.
Updated Microsoft is serious about making work seamless. Five months after it was originally announced, Microsoft is officially rebranding Lync as Skype for Business.
The reasoning is simple. “We want to bring together the well-loved, familiar experience of Skype with the enterprise security, compliance and control that businesses expect from Microsoft,” a Skype blog post explains. A technical preview is already available, and the service will be made generally available in April.
Creative Solutions in Healthcare found its workers are more productive and collaborative using social collaboration software than email. That led the company to evaluate options like harmon.ie's Collage, which brings together information spread out among different cloud services, like Office 365, Yammer and Salesforce, on a one-screen notification center for easier viewing.
Harmon.ie, a cloud-based software company headquartered in Israel, has moved its U.S. headquarters from Silicon Valley to Boston and plans to have 15 people at the office by the end of the year.
With the recent unfurling of a Collage service, Harmon.ie makes it possible to integrate data from a variety of cloud services at the point where that data is consumed. David Lavenda, vice president of product strategy for Harmon.ie, said Collage is designed to make it simpler to unify workflow that now typically spans multiple disjoined cloud services. Rather than ask end users to keep track of where files are located, Lavenda said Collage provides a mechanism through which each individual users can customize their own workflow. Notifications then inform them when changes are made within that workflow, after which they can use Collage to fire up the native application required to access that data.
In a February 2014 industry brief, Forrester Research defined the Engagement Workplace: the next generation business user experience “that empowers employees using any device to take the next most likely action in their moments of need.” In a subsequent report, Forrester noted that in the Engagement Workplace, the
end user experience [will] help workers focus on their jobs by integrating multiple investments, including employee self-provisioned (cloud-based) applications, collaboration applications, and line-of business applications, which are all mobile-enabled and in the context of business results.”
Between cloud services, BYOD, and on-site software, workers use a large and often fragmented collection of apps and services to get things done during the course of a workday. Unfortunately, the "mishmash" approach means employees struggle to find what they need when they need it and sometimes resort to workarounds if they can't get satisfaction with IT-sanctioned products. Hopping back and forth between apps and tabs is maddening, inefficient and unproductive.
A simple explanation might be if you have multiple tools, such as Yammer, Chatter, and others from the long list of products, that are really working well in different use groups then making this a single shared environment should further boost the benefits. Collage makes it seem like a one screen environment, see for yourself by watching the concept video and the demonstration on YouTube. Assuming that Collage does what it says on the tin then you should have an easy way to bring the benefits of enterprise level integration to overcome shadow IT fragmentation. For many enterprises Collage could be a quick win to get both scale and integration of knowledge and experiences into enterprise wide ‘smart data’.
The initial launch unifies Microsoft Office 365, Yammer and Salesforce notification services, and additional cloud services will be added in 2015.
Social collaboration software specialist harmon.ie launched Collage, a platform designed to give workers a contextual, single-screen work stream that offers a 360-degree view across enterprise cloud services.
Harmon.ie today addressed one of the biggest issues in cloud computing: how to track everything that happens in the services you are using. It's solution, Collage, pulls together enterprise cloud services onto a single screen and lets users know what’s happening across the cloud ecosystem in which they operate.
Harmon.ie Inc. today became the latest player to address cloud sprawl with a new service that promises to consolidate off-premise data sources into a unified view of the user’s workflow. The launch extends the startup’s strategic focus beyond Microsoft’s and IBM’s collaboration portfolios to the more modern tools on the mobile worker’s belt.
To help control the proliferation of cloud apps cluttering iPad home screens, Collage looks to manage data feeds and notifications from Yammer, Office 365, Salesforce and others.
We call it “the cloud,” but it’s actually many cloud services. To bring together business updates from several leading cloud services, Boston-based Harmon.ie is today launching a mobile dashboard called Collage.
It’s designed for the information worker “trying to see what’s going on and how I should prioritize my day,” CEO and cofounder Yaacov Cohen told VentureBeat.
... Earlier this week research from Synergy Group explained how Cisco is now ahead of Microsoft in the enterprise collaboration space, while other research from harmon.ie found that while Microsoft was the “undisputed” leader in separate collaboration programs, companies weren’t using the full suite in concert. ...
Although Microsoft has been developing Office 365 at a ferocious rate recently, it still remains a suite of individual applications designed to accomplish specific tasks. To enhance user navigation, harmon.ie has developed a single screen view of those applications and what’s happening in them.
Juggling apps on a mobile device can be a challenge, particularly when it involves the pressures of real-time collaboration. For organizations that use SharePoint and other Microsoft back-end systems, Harmon.ie Mobile offers a top-notch solution. For $19.99 plus $4 per month per mobile user, Harmon.ie Mobile puts Office 365, SharePoint, OneDrive, Yammer and Enterprise Mobility Suite into a single pane of glass. When a communication arrives, the app pops up within the user's current work context and facilitates a response or tasks, such as sharing or modifying an Office document, assigning a task, or responding to an email or text, all in as nondisruptive a way as possible. The back end of the solution is implemented as a SharePoint add-on. A free version offers read-only document access.
A new study, "The State of Mobile Enterprise Collaboration 2014: From Personal Productivity Toward The Connected Enterprise on the Go," finds barriers and opportunities that are driving mobile collaboration. It also highlights a chasm between IT and business departments. The two camps are not equally mindful of mobile policy, and while IT professionals know that personal mobile productivity tools are available, business professionals are less aware. This situation points to the need for IT to take on the role of strategic adviser, to enable more mobile collaboration and improve support of the business department. Harmon.ie commissioned Scratch Marketing + Media to conduct the online survey of 1,400 information technology and line-of-business professionals in 2014. Respondents came from a broad cross-section of industries and company sizes in the United States, as well as multinational businesses. All use enterprise collaboration tools on desktop and mobile devices. Respondents include C-level executives, as well as business and IT leaders and professionals who daily use or support mobile enterprise collaboration services.
While IT department leaders said they provide a vast range of mobile tools to business-side employees, a surprisingly large number of those employees are unaware that the tools are available, according to a recent survey from harmon.ie. The accompanying report, "The State of Mobile Enterprise Collaboration 2014," reveals that technology is making it possible to share and update files, manage projects and pursue a variety of strategic objectives with mobile devices. However, a lack of organizationwide awareness about mobile capabilities is hurting the overall state of enterprise collaboration. "Mobile workers are still struggling to access critical business information increasingly distributed across multiple cloud services and enterprise applications," harmon.ie co-founder and CEO Yaacov Cohen wrote in the report. "To realize the true value of a mobile enterprise, collaboration needs to move well beyond where we are today. In today's competitive market, just giving workers the ability to send email … or exchange instant messages is simply not enough." More than 1,400 business and IT leaders took part in the research.
“The problem isn’t the actual mechanics of the program, which are simple,” says David Lavenda of the Microsoft productivity app company Harmon.ie. “It’s the context – people won’t want to interact with colleagues using FB. Remember FB’s attempt to add email a few years ago — same idea.”
NIBC is an enterprising retail and commercial bank for entrepreneurs that takes pride in a forward-thinking, can-do attitude and "yes" mentality that allows it to be agile and flexible. The bank has offices in The Hague, Brussels, Frankfurt and London.
Forced to meet new regulations, Netherlands-based merchant bank NIBC needed to prove that it was compliant in the way it managed unstructured data. Doing so led to a project it's rolling out on a department-by-department basis, an effort that provides document and email compliance controls while also allowing employees to better access files from mobile devices.
Last week, harmon.ie released research results showing “The State of Mobile Enterprise Collaboration 2014: From Personal Productivity Toward the Connected Enterprise on the Go.” The report found that mobile enterprise collaboration is disproportionately focused on personal productivity and task efficiency, with plenty of room to improve how businesses turn mobile enterprise collaboration into a competitive advantage.
According to "The State of Mobile Enterprise Collaboration 2014: From Personal Productivity Toward the Connected Enterprise on the Go," report from harmon.ie, mobile workers are still struggling to access critical business information that is now spread across multiple services and applications.
Enterprise mobile collaboration leader harmon.ie today released "The State of Mobile Enterprise Collaboration 2014: From Personal Productivity Toward the Connected Enterprise on the Go," a comprehensive report based on a recent survey of 1,400+ business and IT leaders.
Mobile enterprise collaboration is still immature, focusing more on personal productivity and task efficiency than on larger enterprise needs, according to a survey of more than 1,400 business and IT leaders by enterprise mobile collaboration firm harmon.ie.
A report from harmon.ie has found that enterprise mobility is still predominantly focused on personal productivity as opposed to mobile enterprise collaboration, which is described as “not yet mature.”
I talk and write a lot about enterprise collaboration and collaboration tools. Workforces are becoming increasingly mobile, globalized and include members who work remotely. This requires an increasing focus on how teams of people (employees, partners, customers, advisors, contractors, etc.) can work closer together in virtualized workplaces. I asked Harmon.ie's VP of Product Strategy, David Lavenda, to share in this article some of his insights and strategies.
When asked to describe their own IT organizations in terms of collaboration maturity, 21 percent of IT respondents describe themselves as innovators.
Upwards of 90 percent of IT respondents empower employees with email access, 88 percent provide company calendar access and 82 percent enable employees to manage contact directories on their mobile devices, according to a survey of more than 1,400 business and IT leaders by harmon.ie.

Microsoft SharePoint as a technology isn't bad. SharePoint is only as good as its implementation. Soon SharePoint might only be good as its mobile experience. The mobilization of Microsoft SharePoint is a topic I've been following since I began at TechRepublic and wanted to get back to it this year. I recently had the opportunity to speak with Yaacov Cohen, CEO of harmon.ie , a collaboration tools vendor to get a status check about how enterprise mobility, SharePoint, and Office 365 are currently working together.
With the largely untapped potential of mobile enterprise apps, smart developers need to move quickly to cash in on what may be a pending gold rush. This slide show, put together with eWEEK reporting and industry insight from Gartner, Forrester and enterprise collaboration player harmon.ie, provides insights on how the mobile enterprise user experience will evolve and how mobile enterprise app developers can capitalize on new opportunities.
Todd Hetrick wants an iPad app to access SharePoint that is straightforward and easy. Luckily for him, harmon.ie to the rescue! Read all about it in this blog post.
David Lavenda, VP of Product Strategy, harmon.ie, explains that even though enterprises are still in the midst of a dramatic change, the mobile evolution will not be built in a day, or even in a year. The rise of the mobile enterprise demands a paradigm shift both inside and outside of organizations.
David Lavenda talks about how The Social Enterprise is dead … but it hasn’t disappeared. Rather, it has been replaced by a remarkably similar concept: the Digital Workplace. According to Gartner, the Digital Workplace "enables new and more effective ways of working, improves employee engagement and agility, and exploits consumer-oriented styles and technologies."
David Roe talks about the advantages of the new Office 365 Home Page. He highlights harmon.ie as a specialist in the areas of collaboration, customer engagement, enterprise content management and communications.
Lofty promises of a mobile electronic wallet have been around for a decade, only to crash down to earth as consumers continue to stick with the venerable plastic credit-card swipe. Will the newly unveiled Apple Pay be any different? There are signs Apple might be able to pull it off. If this happens, however, not everyone will be happy, particularly those in the enterprise world. "BYOD is dead as soon as Apple Pay takes off," says Yaacov Cohen, co-founder and CEO at Harmon.ie, a developer of enterprise mobile collaboration software. It's bad enough handing over your personal apps and data to your employer under a Bring Your Own Device policy, he says, but having to add personal purchasing history is a deal killer.
The Apple/IBM partnership news is still causing a stir in the press and amongst some analysts. Will Kelly tweets with Yaacov Cohen, harmon.ie co-founder and CEO, as well as some other industry experts to see really how possible it might be for Android to counter Apple and IBM in the enterprise.

Cognizant's Senior Analyst for Digital Transformation and Mobility Kevin Benedict interviews Harmon.ie's Co-Founder and CEO Yaacov Cohen on mobile trends, collaboration and strategies.
There are problems with Yammer. But the problem lies not the product itself. According to David Lavenda, vice president of product strategy at harmon.ie, the real problem is that many people who have access to it just won’t use it — or any other social network for that matter.
CIOs have had little choice but to watch iPhones and iPads proliferate on their networks, even if securing and managing them is an IT headache. While the news of Apple and IBM joining forces in the mobile enterprise market grabbed headlines, CIO.com’s Tom Kaneshige writes the partnership fails to address BYOD concerns. Yaacov Cohen offers insights on what this will mean for MDM vendors.

harmon.ie's David Lavenda talks about what the evolution of the business PC can tell us to expect from this new technology phase.
harmon.ie's David Lavenda discusses why so many mobile enterprise companies made financial announcements within the last few weeks. In the mobile device management (MDM) space, Good Technology has filed an S1 to go public and MobileIron successfully executed an IPO. In the File Sync and Share (FSS) space, Dropbox announced a $500M line of credit after having raised $325M in funding only months earlier, and Box just announced another $100M investment.
harmon.ie, a Milpitas, California-based business collaboration software provider, has partnered with Fiberlink, now an IBM enterprise mobility management (EMM) company, to bring application security powered by MaaS360 Application Security to Microsoft (MSFT) Office 365 and Sharepoint for mobile devices.
harmon.ie Mobile for BlackBerry 10 aggregates popular Microsoft document-sharing and social applications into a single screen experience for the BlackBerry 10 platform. Business users can share documents and collaborate with colleagues using Office 365 or SharePoint on-premise, OneDrive for Business, Office Online and Yammer—all with a single app. The development of Harmon.ie's app for BlackBerry 10 presented unique requirements to create a BlackBerry 10-specific theme based on a generic Sencha Touch architecture.
Workers in the United States are putting themselves and their employers at risk by indiscriminately using nonsecure apps services on their mobile phones and tablets for work purposes. A prime example: Estimates based on a new uSamp (United Sampling) survey calculate the fallout from storing corporate documents on publicly available cloud services has already cost businesses $2 billion. The survey of 500 U.S. business and IT workers was commissioned by enterprise mobile app vendor harmon.ie to gauge the extent to which mobile workers are going rogue, by ignoring organizational policies for mobile device usage.
Accustomed to anytime/anywhere mobile connectivity in their personal lives, and fed up with the collaboration and filing sharing tools offered by their employers, many workers are taking matters into their own hands by using consumer apps to build personal clouds for work. "Rogue IT is wildly pervasive," said David Lavenda, Vice President of Product Strategy at harmon.ie, and a technology strategist in the collaboration and social business space. "It's a scourge on business because it's not secure."
We're revisiting our top five posts from May, in what has been an extremely vibrant and busy month for the Enterprise Mobility Exchange team, including the eighth consecutive year of our European event. Listed below is our month in review.
Doug Bonderud discusses recent harmon.ie rogue IT survey data.
The role which mobile apps play in Enterprise Mobility, and the rapidly accelerating capabilities of related technologies, are enabling professionals to transcend conventional methods of accessing important information for their plethora of business purposes.
In this interview, we asked David Lavenda, VP Product Strategy for harmon.ie his opinion on the benefits of multi-purpose apps, which can extract information from multiple applications, web services and cloud services, to allow people to focus on their work from virtually any location, without having to toggle between different screens or interfaces.

Enterprises continue to struggle with security issues as IT departments fight what seems to be a losing battle as they struggle to protect data. harmon.ie commissioned the anonymous survey of 500 business IT users working in US and global companies. They found that IT professionals fear of a data meltdown due to compromised documents lost via unsecured ¬file sync services tops the list of concerns, with malware downloaded via third-party apps second; and viruses ranking third.
The next BriefingsDirect panel discussion explores one of the most broadly deployed collaboration platforms, Microsoft SharePoint, to determine how it's rapidly evolving from local network portal roots into the new cloud and mobile era.
We've just released version 5.0 of our Enterprise Collaboration and Social Software Report. This latest release offers some practical answers to a nearly ubiquitous question: "How do I add useful social capabilities to SharePoint?" Specifically, we've updated the evaluations of SharePoint, Yammer, and Sitrion (formerly NewsGator), and added harmon.ie and Neudesic Pulse to the line-up. Here's a sneak peek, calling out a single aspect of each of these vendors.
Will Kelly talks to Yaacov Cohen, harmon.ie co-founder and CEO, about BYOD user education.
harmon.ie's David Lavenda talks about information overload and rogue IT.
Sharing files with colleagues and clients should be easy and convenient. What it shouldn't be is a security risk — but it frequently is. Because many small businesses don't have the right file-sharing systems and policies, many turn to unsafe practices that often put both their business's and clients' privacy in jeopardy.
It's hard to overstate the impact of Microsoft Office for iPad. The arrival of the dominant productivity suite on the dominant tablet promises to change how iPads are viewed in the enterprise. Office for iPad may also crush competitive apps, shut out cloud storage providers and limit MDM vendors.
Will Kelly talks about the launch of Microsoft Office for iPad (Microsoft Word for iPad/Microsoft Excel for iPad/Microsoft PowerPoint for iPad) and mobile collaboration. Including, how harmon.ie is developing smart mobile app solutions for accessing Office 365/SharePoint Online.
BYOD has been a perennial buzzword and we finally saw broad adoption of it last year with Gartner going so far as to predict a shift in BYOD policy from personal decision to company mandate by 2017. In conjunction with that adoption came growing pains—straining archaic enterprise infrastructure, services and policies as companies struggled to accommodate the new demands and dangers of managing an increasingly mobile workforce.
The essence of both SharePoint and Yammer is to engender collaboration, teamwork and of course, sharing. It follows suit, then, that the passionate community behind these essential business tools has a lot to say when it comes to the direction of these products. More than ever, individuals with influence have a voice that can reach into and transform the echo chamber that stifles innovation.
The mobile world has done wonders for the 'anytime, anywhere productivity.' We can now work productively with the flexibility the modern employee needs to balance work and life. At least, that was the promise.

Dan Antion talks about the term 'Newsjacking' and filling holes in other companies' domains. For Microsoft that is: MaaS360, harmon.ie and WebEx.
There is simply no way to unring the anytime, anyplace enterprise bell. Companies need to keep in mind the usual stuff like data leakage, governance; they also need to worry about employees' claims to mobile device rights. What makes David Lavenda say that? And what is Kranzberg's First Law?
