At Microsoft Build Developer Conference, Microsoft introduced Microsoft AI 365 and cross-platform services for better collaboration and productivity. In addition, new free software technologies and developer tools have been announced in Azure and Windows.

Microsoft today announced new technologies at the annual Microsoft Developer Conference to help developers create smart and collaborative solutions. This includes features of AI 365 that combine Office 365, Windows 10 and Enterprise Mobility and Security, and cross-platform services for better collaboration and productivity.

Microsoft Graph Data Connection enables enterprises to securely and accurately aggregate Microsoft Graph productivity data with their own business data with Azure Data Factory. According to the blog post, Microsoft Graph data connect is now included as a feature in Workplace Analytics and is also available for Independent Software Vendors (ISVs). The service is available worldwide today.

With Fluid Framework, Microsoft announced a new Web-based platform and a component-based model for team collaboration. This breaks down the limitations of traditional documents to simplify collaboration between applications. The Fluid Framework will be available this year through a Developer Software Developer Kit. The technology will also be integrated with Microsoft 365, including Word, Teams and Outlook. Fluid Framework features include the ability to split content, such as Web applications or productivity, into modular collaborative building blocks to facilitate multi-person content creation and co-authorship with unprecedented speed and performance. It also allows teams to collaborate with intelligent agents who make image suggestions, identify experts, and translate data.

with Microsoft Search Business users can identify relevant people, content, and activities in their organization. The corresponding search box is included in Microsoft 365 applications, such as SharePoint, OneDrive, Outlook, Windows and Bing. Microsoft Search is now available worldwide.

Microsoft Graph supports focus times in Microsoft 365 applications, such as teams, where users can work undisturbed. Notifications are suppressed and stored during these times. With the new feature, MyAnalytics users can set a routine for daily focus times: The tool determines the appropriate periods for the work concentrated on the KI base and can automatically lock them in the calendar for certain pending tasks. The feature should be available as a preview of the summer.

Ideas is a new editor based on AI in Word that makes smart suggestions to make the text more precise, readable and inclusive. The tool also provides estimated reading times, the summary of the most important contents of a document and the meaning of acronyms. The brainstorming will be available for Word Online from June.

Actionable messages In Outlook, you should now allow users to respond to certain emails immediately, without switching the application, for example, to confirm budgets, grant access to documents, or participate in surveys.

@Mentions can now be used in Word documents to assign tasks, ask questions or respond directly to colleagues. In Word Online, the feature will be available from summer.

Innovations are also available for Microsoft Edge. In December of last year, Microsoft announced that it would use the Chromium open source project for the development of Microsoft Edge for the desktop. As part of Build 2019, Microsoft announced a variety of new features for the next browser version in Windows 10.

IE mode targets over 60% of businesses that use multiple browsers today. IE mode integrates Internet Explorer as a guide on Microsoft Edge. This allows companies to run Internet Explorer-based applications in a modern browser.

Additional control tools allow users to select three different levels of privacy in Microsoft Edge: unrestricted, balanced, and strict. Depending on which option users choose, traceability of usage behavior to third-party providers will be limited accordingly. This gives users more control and transparency when using the browser.

Collections target the flow of information across the Web. With Office integration, the new feature lets users collect, organize, share, and export content more efficiently.

The new features will be introduced gradually. In addition to the enhanced Web compatibility for Edge users, Microsoft also wants to ensure that even developers who have built Chrome-compatible Web pages will benefit from the same compatibility on Microsoft Edge without any additional effort.

Activities in the field of conversational interfaces are also being expanded with the help of the Semantic Machines team. This new approach involves building powerful conversation interfaces from data and machine learning rather than rules and code. The technology will be integrated with Cortana and will be available to developers in the Microsoft Bot Framework and the Azure Bot Service in the future.

In addition, the company announced new free software technologies and developer tools in Azure and Windows. The new features and features of the Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) are designed to accelerate and further protect Kubernetes workloads.

Kubernetes' event-driven self-escalation (KEDA) provides a new hosting option for Azure Functions, which can be deployed as a container in Kubernetes clusters, making components as the applicable scheduling model or controller to all implementations of Kubernetes. KEDA is now available as a public view. Azure's Policy for AKS centrally and consistently protects AKS clusters, blocks policy violations that occur during runtime, and runs compliance scores on all existing clusters.

Microsoft also announced that Q # compilers and simulators are available as open source, Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) will be integrated with GitHub and the new Hyperscale (Citus) option in the Azure Database for PostgreSQL will be integrated with the Hyperscale Bank of Azure SQL Data.
