Xtreme Podcast: Fun, fun, fun ‘til your IT admin takes the emojis away

Welcome to the TechGenix weekly installment of the Xtreme Minute! This is a quick synopsis of what to expect in today’s TechGenix Xtreme Podcast with Louise Chalupiak and Peter King, including links to all of the latest hot tech topics.

We start the podcast with an article from Mitch Tulloch, titled Too much fun and games? Control Microsoft Teams with PowerShell. Leave it to the North American culture to turn the fun of emojis into a legally binding risk within the workplace. Nonetheless, it is our mandate in the profession of technology to work with the business to deliver tools that promote productivity and lower risk. This article provides cut and paste scripts for PowerShell that will allow you to do just that!

Second up we turn to Melissa Burns who educates us on 20 best CRM software in 2019 for small businesses. We love you Salesforce, but you are no longer the only solution for customer relationship management. Melissa does the research for us with her list of the top 20 CRM software players. Running out of time? Skip to the bottom of the article to see a summary of the top requirement each tool will provide.

Wrapping up our day, we turn to an article from Brien Posey titled, Can those smart personal digital assistants become less stupid? The debate continues as to whether digital assistants will become the addictive tool of the future, or if their functionality will remain at the childish level at which they exist today. Brien explores the potential of artificial intelligence understanding the relationships between words as opposed to applying mathematical probabilities.

Don’t forget to check out the recent articles from Sukesh Mudrakola about Dell Technologies World 2019 and Google I/O 2019.
