What Is Office 365 for Business?

Microsoft Office 365 is the how traditional Microsoft Office products such as Outlook, Word, Excel, & Powerpoint can now be purchased on subscription model. Office 365 software can now be purchased on an ongoing basis which means no more upfront licencing costs and continual releases of new versions to subscribers.

Part of Microsoft Office 365 advantage is the cloud integration of email, storage & teleconferencing. No longer do Businesses need to invest in local server technology to get enterprise grade email, as the email host is located in the Microsoft Data Centre – Microsoft do the routine backup, maintenance, and updating of the email host – this means businesses no longer need to invest in upfront hardware, or incur ongoing running costs such as electricity, air con & space.

Similarly with each subscription Microsoft also offers a compelling scenario for offsite storage with 1TB per user cloud storage and file sharing in the cloud. Subscriptions may also include Skype for  Business (previously called Lync) that allow to group teleconference, instant message and VoIP enabled single point of presence calling

To gain all these feature Businesses traditionally need to invest heavily and spend to maintain & upgrade their systems.
