Microsoft’s suite of business software applications is the de facto standard, and has become so enmeshed in business that words like Excel, Word, Powerpoint and Outlook are used interchangeably to mean spreadsheets, word processing file, presentation slide deck, and email. Instead of “I’m sending you a spreadsheet” it’s just as common to hear “I’m sending you an Excel file.”
For the past ten years, the Office suite has been available as a subscription to “an always-up-to-date cloud service” known as Microsoft 365. Microsoft 365 is the productivity cloud designed to help you pursue your passion and run your business. More than just apps like Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Microsoft 365 brings together best-in-class productivity apps with powerful cloud services, device management, and advanced security in one, connected experience. Use professional email and calendaring to reach customers and coworkers wherever work takes you. Store, access, and share files from anywhere with 1 TB of online storage per user. Keep your team on the same page with group chat, online meetings, and calling in Microsoft Teams, the hub for teamwork. Help protect your employees, your data, and your customer information with advanced security and device management.**
While many companies continue to access the Microsoft office suite of products from on-premise servers, the move to the cloud for Office remains very compelling. Moving to the cloud means you can access your apps from anywhere you have an internet connection and that advanced security tools are available from Microsoft to better protect your data.
