But the easiest way to see what's coming now and relatively soon on these fronts is by the good old roadmap slide. During a session at Ignite on September 27, Microsoft execs shared such a slide, as a few folks on Twitter noted.
I asked Microsoft for a slightly easier to read version of that slide. Here's what I got (and which you can see a bit better by clicking on it to enlarge):
Per User ODB management in O365 user admin console
AAD conditional access (Windows preview)
IT-managed Mac sync client deployment (preview)

It's worth noting that the slide Microsoft emailed me does not exactly match the one that was shown in sessions at Ignite. What's different?
The original slide said AAD conditional access (Windows) and IT-managed Mac sync client deployment were rolling out now. The updated slide moved those two features to Q4 2016. It also listed "Sync client installed with Office 2016 for Mac" as a H1 2017 deliverable. That item was removed.
I've asked Microsoft about the reason for the changes. No word back so far.
Speaking of roadmaps, here's another slide from the show for SharePoint users trying to keep track of what's coming when.
I didn't notice any big surprises here. It looks like a continuation of the plans the SharePoint team announced back in May.
