In response to Microsoft's announcement this week that it will no longer provide session border controller (SBC) support for PBX systems accessing Office 365, third-party firm AVST is stepping in with a solution. The gist of Microsoft's announcement is that users of Exchange Online Unified Messaging (UM) will have to use an alternative method of connecting voicemail with Outlook. In July of next year, Microsoft won't support PBX connections using SBCs for that purpose.
Microsoft beat analyst forecasts for Q4 of its 2017 fiscal year thanks to strong Azure revenue growth. Revenues of $24.7 billion for the quarter-ended June 30 increased 9% year-over-year, with operating income of $7 billion contributing a 13% boost in profits, the company announced Thursday afternoon following the close of the equity markets. Revenues for the entire fiscal year were up 5%, totaling $96.7 billion.
It will be officially released in September. Microsoft's public cloud, Azure, has met with great success in the industry. It's a solid No. 2 behind Amazon Web Services (AWS), and in some segments, even bests AWS. Until now, however, it's been a public-only platform. That's now changing, with the announcement of the release date for Azure Stack, which is meant for local datacenters.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
