Mobility for SharePoint On-Premises and Office 365
AgreeYa Mobility announced Onvelop, a unified collaboration and communication platform that enables secure mobile access to Office 365, SharePoint, and Lync from iOS, Android, and Windows 8 mobile devices. Users can review documents, create events and announcements, chat, call via Lync/OCS, have a SharePoint document review meeting online via chat or call conferencing, check out and update documents from SharePoint, and check them back in to SharePoint so that updates become available to other enterprise users in the same network—from the mobile device.
Onvelop also provides enterprise administrators with a web-based dashboard for easy remote license management and enterprise-data control on the Onvelop platform. To learn more, see the Onvelop website.

GSX Solutions announced the release of GSX Monitor & Analyzer v10.6 with the ability to track mail availability and performance across hybrid environments, including Exchange 2007 to 2013, Office 365, and IBM Domino.
The new GSX Monitor & Analyzer feature enables administrators to do such things as track availability and performance during migrations from earlier versions of Exchange; compare cloud vs. on-premises performance, and more.
Also released was the enhanced GSX Management Pack for SCOM. New features include a “back-up” alert, which is automatically closed in the SCOM dashboard, eliminating the need for admins to check alerts manually. To learn more, see the GSX Software website.
