Office365 is the cloud provision of email, collaboration and instant messaging services.
Office365 is an example of a true cloud service. Instead of an initial capital outlay to buy your own servers, you use the provider’s servers and connect to the service by the internet. You only pay only for the amount of the service you need – that is to say you only buy the licences you require. Paying monthly you can increase or decrease the number of licences as required. You do not need to worry about whether you have purchased the right sized server to cope with the growth of your organisation; add as many licences as you need when you need them.
There are 3 main versions of Office365 most likely to be used in a small or mid-sized organisation are:
Exchange Online – Email, calendars and contacts using the cloud, that replaces you on premises Exchange server
Business Essentials – Exchange Online plus Sharepoint for document storage and sharing and Skype for Business for instant messaging and easy video conferencing.
Business Premium – Business Essentials plus the provision of Microsoft Office applications (Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote). You no longer have to buy this software outright as a capital cost but pay monthly as an Office365 subscription.
