Real-time streaming in Power BI | Microsoft Power BI
You can add Power BI as an output within Azure Stream Analytics (ASA), and then visualize those data streams in the Power BI service in real time. This section describes technical details about how that process occurs.

Azure Stream Analytics uses the Power BI REST APIs to create its output data stream to Power BI, with defaultMode set to pushStreaming (see earlier sections in this article for information on defaultMode), which results in a dataset that can take advantage of both push and streaming.

Identity Broker Service in SAML: Supporting Multiple Identity Providers & Service Providers | API Crazy
*excellent find via Nikunj*
A federated organisation may have multiple distinct services (service providers) where each service is protected under a distinct trust domain. The same organisation may wish to trust multiple external & internal identity providers and allow the end user to select their preferred identity provider. Furthermore the same federated organisation may require greater levels of certainty for specific services and may wish to limit the available identity providers for a specific service or enforce step-up authentication on the identity provider. This pattern is useful for governments and enterprise’s wishing to move away from a Push Model for Enterprise Identity Architecture.

The Corporate Implications of Longer Lives
Rising life expectancy means the level of savings required to provide a reasonable income for retirement at age 65 is becoming increasingly infeasible for most people.2 We predict that, given the average level of savings in advanced economies, many people currently in their mid-40s are likely to need to work into their early to mid-70s; many currently in their 20s (many of whom could live to be over 100) will be working into their late 70s, and even into their 80s.

Don't Build A Digital Strategy; Digitize Your Business Strategy | Forrester Blogs
Don't Build A Digital Strategy; Digitize Your Business Strategy. Digital fundamentally changes your relationship with your customers. You can't address this change with a bolt-on digital strategy that adds an app here or a site there.

Shetler gets new role as Australia creates revamped digital government agency - Government Computing Network
Digital Transformation Office (DTO) for which Shetler was chief executive, a new Digital Transformation Agency (DTA) has been created, which is intended to “implement wide scale change in digital capability across government departments, benefiting the public and other users of government services.”

The new digital agency will be responsible for the ICT policy and procurement functions, currently managed by the Department of Finance.

Assistant minister for digital transformation Angus Taylor said Australians want consistently improved digital services, focusing on user satisfaction. He announced the appointment of a new interim chief executive for the new DTA, Nerida O’Loughlin, with Shetler moving to the new chief digital officer role.
