What is Microsoft Office 365?

The modern workplace is changing; employees today demand the freedom to work anywhere, with anyone, at any time, across any device.


While meeting these demands, organisations must be able to address cybersecurity threats, issues surrounding the growing use of BYOD and consumer apps, as well as challenges created due to regulatory and compliance requirements.


Microsoft Office 365 is the cloud-based software suite that combines the familiar Office applications – Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, for example – with next generation productivity-based tools, such as Yammer, Planner, SharePoint, OneNote, Skype for Business.


With the applications designed to enhance productivity, communication and collaboration – across the business, with customers, partners, and third parties – Office 365 also incorporates industry-leading security, compliance and privacy controls.


Oliver Moazzezi, Cobweb Technical Architect and Microsoft Office Servers and Services MVP, says, “The transition of software services to the cloud is here to stay. It’s a relatively new market, but one that is already mature and ahead of traditional on-premises solutions with features and functionality.


“Microsoft is leading the way with Office 365, a suite of productivity services for the SMB and supported all the way up to the largest enterprise.”


O365 definitive guideBut many organisations are unaware of the full scope of Office 365, and so we’ve put together a guide to take businesses through the features offered – from the established and well-loved favourites to the lesser well-known tools, along with value add applications – from within the Microsoft ecosystem as well provided by Microsoft partners – that, depending on individual need, can further enhance employee efficiency and business process.  


We also take a look at various pricing plans, because Office 365 is not only flexible and scalable, but available cost-wise to suit organisation size and budget – and we examine (and dispel) some of the myths that can prevent a business moving to - and experiencing the benefits of using - cloud services. We thought it might be useful, in addition, to include some guidance on Office 365 adoption in the workplace and migration.
