We at Microsoft share an authentic passion for pushing the boundaries of what technology can do for productivity. We love creating new products and services that solve problems for our customers and let people and businesses dream bigger.
That’s why we’re incredibly excited about Microsoft® Office 365. Office 365 brings together online versions of our most trusted communications and collaboration products—Microsoft Exchange®, Microsoft SharePoint®, and Microsoft Lync®—with the latest version of the Microsoft Office® desktop suite. It turbocharges small businesses with powerful, relevant tools—and lets enterprises regain their youthful agility. It lets people collaborate from anywhere, do more, and work smarter. We think it’s a game-changer and we can’t wait for you to try it.
Whether you are an IT pro, CEO, business owner, Microsoft Partner, or just someone who wants to stay on top of the latest technology, this blog is your source for all things Office 365, all the time. We want to help you understand what Office 365 does, how you can get it, the latest news about it, and, most importantly, how it brings the future of productivity to your organization today—whether it’s an organization of one or thousands.
It’s important to point out a couple of things that we don't want to do. We don’t intend this to be a forum on the cloud—there are already plenty of those, and we think the value of cloud computing is already abundantly clear. We’re also going to focus less on “how-to” and more on how Office 365 drives IT and business value. Also, although Office 365 is indeed the next generation of Business Productivity Online Services (BPOS), customers on BPOS should still follow the Microsoft Online Services blog.
This blog is 100% Office 365. A few of the topics we plan to cover in the early going include:
If you have questions about how Office 365 can transform your business (and we hope you do), this blog is where we’ll try to answer them. Feel free to leave a comment, or communicate with us on Facebook or tweet @office365 if that’s your thing. Office 365 was built for you, and its success depends on how well we listen to your voice. So get talking—and welcome to the Office 365 blog!
Allen, Office 365 Product Manager
Executives’ at large organizations face many business challenges that require unique insights, proven experience and delivered performance. Office 365 is the next step in the future of productivity. It will change the rules of business by providing the power of Microsoft’s productivity platform to everyone through the cloud. As cloud computing evolves rapidly, Avanade continues to track industry trends through research as well as customer engagements to help organizations navigate, deploy and take advantage of Microsoft cloud-based solutions and services.
Avanade is very excited to see the expanded options for enterprise customers to purchase only what they need and support all their users, regardless of role or function, on a single platform!
Hello 365! I have not been able to pull up a webpage after clicking "find out more" or "download 365 beta". Im running IE 9 Beta. Thx
Si hace unos días os decía que “parecía” que la nueva generación de BPOS y otros servicios en la nube
ALlen, a great day, congrats, Office 365 is amazing !!!! Well chosen name, good brand and well, next milestone is the GA but at the moment looks awesome.
Ok Allen - I have a question - what happens when the internet is down or you are in a place such as an airplane where you have no internet? can you still work "offline"?
OK, where are the details? What smartphones are supported? What is happening with Dynanmics CRM? etc?
Will Mac users be able to use Mac version of Office 2011 throught this program.. Great option for Small businesses.
Our small business is already a Microsoft Exchange Online customer. Is it possible for us to be part of the beta or do we have to wait for GA?
Great idea - I can see this being extremely useful for NFP and volunteer organisations to standardise on an office tool-set without having to worry about what their members or contributors use at work or at home et al. I am President of a junior sporting club (500 members) where we do all our administration & communication through the email inbox with limited success as we are forced to do things manually on our computer because putting things online is too hard. Will there be any consideration to provide subsidised rates for community groups IE sporting clubs? Also interested to know if you pay a monthly rate for all your members or just for the creators of content IE our committee members?
Really a nice update from Microsoft.
After several years with SharePoint 2003 and some months with Live@edu at our schools, we are relly looking forward to Microsoft Office 365 here in Västerås, Sweden!!
Looking good so far. Have the Wikis and Forums launched yet? I've registered for the beta using my Live@edu tenant account and have access to the Beta Blog, but I'm not seeing that other content yet. Excited about trying out the new features, EW
Office 365 beta team --
I hope that you will create sufficient places in the "limited beta" to accommodate a wide range of potential customers. I tried a number of times to sign up yesterday as soon as the site became available, but it was clearly overloaded and non-responsive. I was able to sign up this morning, but the confirmation email indicates that interest is so high that I'll be contacted if space becomes available.
Office 365 offerings appear very attractive/competitive but if we need to wait until early-to-mid-2011 to evaluate the product for possible adoption, it may be necessary to select an alternative cloud provider. We're struggling with the need to move to the cloud now to contain costs. This is particularly true of educational, governmental, and non-profit institutions here in California who have been hit with waves budget reductions while needs and demand for services continues to rise.
Congratulations on the launch of this groundbreaking service. My business provides information risk management consulting services to clients with sensitive data to protect so it's reassuring to see the assertion that the service has SAS 70 and ISO 27001 certification. From a privacy and security perspective I'm interested in where the data in 365 are stored and and how they are protected in storage and in transit between the user and the data centre.
Where would I find a summary of information risk management controls in place in 365 that I can use for due diligence and part of my analysis and decision making for advising my clients?
Thanks, and all the best.
What a great service <if I do say so myself.> Gives new meaning to the words "cloud computing" and 'in the cloud.'
