Picture an online command center which threads your key Enterprise apps including Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint Server, through the eye of a cloud delivery platform reducing cost, complexity and helping staff focus on revenue, not technology.
This is precisely the end goal of Software-as-a-Service Office 365, Microsoft’s latest business productivity suite which mitigates the need to tether software to expensive legacy hardware in your IT department.
Access your email, important documents, contacts and calendars from anywhere and any device, making you completely self-sufficient using a remote cloud hosting platform from Virtual Internet.
Every best seller from the Microsoft suite of packages is available within this hosted software including Exchange and SharePoint, which are becoming standard features in any serious IT department.
Just take a look at the massive growth in search demand for this business tool on Google Insights. Searches for Office 365 are surging almost VERTICALLY upwards and this will accelerate further in 2012.
One reason for this is because Office 365 is geared to work on all Smart devices which is in itself experiencing massive growth. The combination of cloud scaling coupled with horizontal reach on all physical devices, is making the Microsoft suite of productivity tools invaluable to high-demand Enterprise IT.
Strong SLAs and uptime guarantees from providers such as Virtual Internet are also helping to fuel this growth in hosted productivity infrastructure.
“Because you can use your mobile device to access e-mail and documents, you won’t have to hurry back to the office (or look for a Wi-Fi hot spot if you are using your computer). When traveling, you can access your e-mail and even edit online documents from most popular Web browsers,” said Microsoft.
Plus, because Enterprise employees are familiar with nearly all MS products (Excel, Word), learning Office 365 is ridiculously easy.
“With Office 365, you can create a password-protected portal to share large, hard-to-e-mail files both inside and outside your organization, giving you a single location to find the very latest versions of files or documents, no matter how many people are working on them,” said Microsoft.
By leveraging Exchange through Office 365 users can access all email, contacts and calendars anytime, anywhere using desktops, laptops or mobile devices.
Enterprise level AV and spam filters protect business employees at all times. They can also create sites to share documents through hosted SaaS SharePoint, which allows further ability to track project milestones and ensure everyone has the latest version.
If you have not yet investigated Office 365, start now. It has a high approval rating and will become a standard feature in Enterprise IT over the coming years.
