Syntex Pay As You Go - how it helps and how to use it
Chris O'Brien
by Chris O'Brien
1w ago
In previous articles I've covered many of the capabilities of Syntex and how it can be used, and from my perspective organisations are becoming very interested in Syntex to automate processes involving documents. In a notable development Syntex now has a Pay As You Go (PAYG) model for pricing - in preview until February/March 2023 with no costs charged. In the same approach used for Power Platform PAYG, Azure billing is used and charges appear in Azure Cost Management within the subscription linked to your Microsoft 365 tenant. In this article we'll consider cases where the PAYG may be more ap ..read more

Microsoft Syntex - December 2022 update and compiled articles

Microsoft Syntex has been one of Microsoft's biggest announcements in 2022 - which can be somewhat confusing because it existed previously as SharePoint Syntex since 2020 - but Syntex is expanding massively from "AI that understands your documents so you can automate processes" to an entire suite of advanced capabilities related not just to your documents, but also your images and videos. Some of the bigger recent or forthcoming features include document eSignatures, annotations, image recognition, automated document summaries and translations, auto video transcription and much more - many of ..read more

SharePoint Syntex - new support for full document automation scenarios with Power Automate
Chris O'Brien
by Chris O'Brien
5M ago
SharePoint Syntex, the AI-enabled document automation capability within Microsoft 365, has steadily been increasing in features since its introduction in October 2020. In relative terms Syntex is still quite a young product, and seeing the new features emerge it's clear that Microsoft are investing heavily in this area. If you're not familiar, Syntex offers a range of capabilities including: Automated creation of documents from your templates (known as Content Assembly) Automated classification and understanding of documents - once Syntex AI is trained it can not only identify and recognise y ..read more

Identifying Syntex use cases - how the SharePoint Syntex assessment tool can help
Chris O'Brien

If you're a regular reader of this blog, you'll know I'm a big advocate of what Microsoft are doing with SharePoint Syntex. In short, Syntex brings intelligent automation to every organisation for processes which involve documents - and in most businesses today, that's a substantial proportion of processes. We're in the middle of big shift in technology where cloud power is commoditising advanced AI and automation capabilities so that they are no longer restricted to expensive, specialist, and often industry-specific tools. Examples of this include the legal and engineering sectors, in which i ..read more

Speaking at ESPC 2022 (Copenhagen) on SharePoint Syntex and Viva Topics
Chris O'Brien
by Chris O'Brien

Process automation and AI will be big growth engines for technology in the next few years, so I'm really happy to have been selected as the speaker to cover these hot topics (and how the Microsoft stack solves for them) at one of the big Microsoft conferences this year. The European SharePoint, Microsoft 365 and Azure Conference will be in Copenhagen, Denmark from 28th November - 1st December 2022, meaning I've got plenty of time to practice my speaker face and bad jokes. I'll be delivering two sessions: SharePoint Syntex - art of the possible and lessons learnt (session code T29) Tuesday 2 ..read more

SharePoint Content Assembly - hints and tips
Chris O'Brien
by Chris O'Brien

In recent articles I've covered SharePoint Syntex from a few angles. Most recently in Automate creation of new documents with SharePoint Syntex Content Assembly we looked at exactly that, automated document creation using the scenario of role description documents, showing the end-to-end process of using Content Assembly. Here at Content+Cloud the scenario is a good fit for Syntex in our business because we have a large number of open roles, which equals a large number of documents, and they're all based on our common template for role descriptions. With Syntex Content Assembly we can sim ..read more

Automate creation of new documents with SharePoint Syntex Content Assembly
Chris O'Brien
by Chris O'Brien
9M ago
With the recent Content Assembly feature, SharePoint Syntex can now create templated documents as part of an automated process - all native to Microsoft 365. This is an important part of intelligent automation since so many processes involve a document - in the consumer world your mortgage documents, an insurance quote, a letter confirming a policy change and so on. While financial and ERP systems often take care of invoices, sales orders and purchase orders, the business world revolves around proposals, contracts, safety reports, compliance certificates, checklists, affiliate agreements and m ..read more

The rise of low-code business applications continues, with industry analysts such as Gartner predicting that by 2025 70% of new applications developed by enterprises will use low-code or no-code technologies, and Microsoft claiming that 92% of Fortune 500 clients are now using Power Apps to provide tools to their employees and customers. With this backdrop I'm excited to be speaking at the inaugural European Power Platform Conference this year, held in April in Berlin. The conference is from the same team behind the European SharePoint, Office 365 and Azure Conference (ESPC), one of the bigges ..read more

SharePoint Syntex AI - my top 5 real-world tips
Chris O'Brien
by Chris O'Brien
1y ago
SharePoint Syntex is the AI-powered ability for Microsoft 365 to learn and understand your documents, enabling knowledge to be extracted and automated processes to be implemented around your content. Building on earlier work I did, I've worked on a couple of Syntex implementations recently, one for a client and one internal to us at Content+Cloud. Putting Syntex into action in the real world is quite different to general experimentation, and in this post I want to share some learnings as I've worked with different scenarios. Before that, if you're looking for some fundamentals content on Synte ..read more

Supercharge your virtual Teams meetings with SharePoint Syntex, whiteboards, polls, presenter modes and more

As we all settle into the next few years of hybrid work, it's somewhat sobering to reflect that Microsoft have clocked up to 2.7 billion minutes of Teams calls in a single day at times. We're irrefutably spending much more of our time in Teams calls and meetings - from all those short "stop by the desk" chats that are now scheduled meetings (reflected by a 22% increase in meetings of 30 mins or less in Microsoft's research), to more organised team and company "all-hands" meetings which have shifted from either fully or partly physical to fully virtual in many cases. The challenge now is how to ..read more
