According to Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, Office 365 is Microsoft’s most strategic API. But to realize
the potential of this business collaboration platform, Microsoft and its partners have to convince
business and IT leaders that it offers levels of security, privacy, and compliance that are equal to or
higher than those of their existing on-premise solutions. Even though a high percentage of enterprises
are adopting cloud storage and compute within their businesses, the adoption of cloud-based content
and collaboration products is by no means universal. Concerns relating to governance, risk, and
compliance with regard to cloud services are understandable, but it is not unusual to find them
Today’s businesses rely heavily on email to communicate with clients, partners, and colleagues. But research suggests that organizations are lacking when it comes to protecting themselves against the increasing number of customized and complex attacks.
When polled by Mimecast, 83% of IT security managers said they see email as a primary source of attack, yet 65% claim they aren’t fully equipped to resolve the risks associated with email threats. Respondents’ perceptions of primary security threats also appeared to change based on having experienced a successful
breach. However, viruses, malware, spam, and insider threats remain the top concerns for both groups, both with and without breach experience.
Few businesses have faced as much change in such a
short period of time as financial services firms. Rapid
technology innovation, combined with deregulation,
has turned a once-conservative industry into a
breeding ground for disruptive change and cuttingedge
Microsoft commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ study to examine the potential return on investment (ROI) businesses can receive through the deployment of Office 365. To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks
associated with an Office 365 implementation, we interviewed four existing customers and surveyed 72 midsized organizations (with 150 to 2,000 users) about the use of Microsoft business products the SaaS platform, including Office Professional Plus, Exchange, Skype for Business (formerly Lync), SharePoint, Yammer, and OneDrive.
Our research found that a sample composite organization (which switched from an on-premises 2010 version solution to Office 365) had total present value benefits of $3.4 million versus total present value costs of $1.3 million, resulting in a net present value (NPV) of $2.1 million.
Microsoft commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study and examine the potential return on investment (ROI) organizations may realize by deploying Office 365. The purpose of this study is to provide readers at small and medium-sized businesses (one to 250 users) with a framework to evaluate the potential financial impact of Office 365 on their organizations.
When was the last time you went more than a few hours into your workday without interacting with someone at your company? If you’re like the majority of the workforce, limited interactions are a rarity
and collaboration is ongoing.
In today’s on-demand economy, speed and flexibility are critical. The modern workforce uses multiple devices, expecting them to work
seamlessly from any location, at any time. They want to communicate in real time and must have easy access to the data and productivity tools they need to do their jobs well.
Office 365 harnesses the power of the cloud to improve the capabilities of the familiar Microsoft Office suite to meet these expectations. It’s a robust productivity toolbox that helps companies
transform the way they engage, serve and sell to customers.
Today’s growing businesses face a tough challenge. They need to provide the same affordable, always-on mobile services that more established businesses offer, but without the economic support enterprises can fall back on. That means IT professionals are onstantly looking for creative ways to do more with less: managing teams, stretching budgets, and making the most of infrastructure and applications. To meet the needs of their organisations within those constraints, they’re turning to the cloud.
