Email is an important part of every organization and Office 365 Exchange Online helps make this even better. It’s a cloud-based email service that comes with lots of advantages and ensures smooth communication within the business. If your organization has a hosted Exchange environment, you have the option to Migrate Hosted Exchange to Office 365. There are a few migration methods that are available and each one has its own set of advantages over the others in terms of requirements and benefits.

Let’s see how Microsoft 365 improves your business functionality:

Microsoft 365 can be integrated into your existing infrastructure

Office 365 integrates well with cloud-based applications and on-premises environments. You can deploy in a hybrid environment where some applications run from the Microsoft cloud and other applications use locally downloaded applications. This allows businesses to customize services for each user and device.

It also integrates well with other cloud-based services such as Dropbox and Google Drive, so businesses don’t have to worry about it not working with their existing infrastructure.

Businesses mobility

If your organization relies on employees having remote access to documents and applications, Microsoft 365 is for you. With access to Microsoft’s suite of applications, employees can access, edit, save, and share documents from their Hosted Virtual Desktop setup on their personal devices with maximum security.

Simplified management

Microsoft designed its O365 with organizations in mind, keeping management costs low while maintaining a high level of security.

The platform is designed to be accessed through Microsoft’s web-based portal called the Microsoft 365 admin center, allowing administrators to manage resources in a unified platform. It also includes Microsoft SCCM, enabling businesses to quickly and easily deploy applications to thousands of users.

Provides compliance with Microsoft standards

Office 365 includes compliance standards so your organization can easily ensure that your installation meets regulatory requirements. O365 has also undergone extensive third-party testing to earn the Enterprise Security Seal. This means it is a highly secure platform for transmitting, storing, and managing data.

User friendly

O365 includes Microsoft’s core productivity applications such as Outlook, SharePoint, and OneDrive, allowing organizations to standardize products that provide a familiar interface to employees regardless of which application they use.

All applications are housed in an easy-to-use platform, making it easy for employees to track their tasks and communications.

 Reduces the cost of ownership

O365 is affordable and easy to deploy and maintain for large numbers of users. This is a subscription-based service that pays a monthly fee per employee. This keeps costs under control and allows you to easily manage your budget when adding new employees or devices. Due to Microsoft’s existing relationships with major IT vendors, we can also offer enterprises the ability to purchase licenses through their current service providers. This can often be integrated into existing services.
