Office 365 Enterprise E5 has a host of great features tailored to an enterprise organization’s needs for additional security (Advanced Security Management), enhanced protection (Advanced Threat Protection) and the ability to quickly locate and analyze emails, files and other resources that meet specific criteria (Advanced eDiscovery).
To configure these new features and show them working for yourself—and to leave you with a working dev/test environment with which you can further experiment—take a look at the new Office 365 Enterprise test lab guides (TLGs).
The Office 365 Enterprise TLGs are a modular set of highly prescriptive articles that step you through:
- Building a simplified intranet in Azure infrastructure services with an Azure trial subscription (optional).
- Creating an Office 365 Enterprise E5 trial subscription.
- Configuring directory synchronization between a Windows Server AD forest and the Azure AD tenant of your Office 365 subscription (optional).
- Configuring and demonstrating Office 365 Enterprise E5 features (Advanced Security Management, Advanced Threat Protection and Advanced eDiscovery).
With these articles, you can quickly create a free dev/test environment for demonstration or evaluation of these enterprise features for training or for application development. You simply start at the bottom and work your way up.
The resulting Office 365 dev/test environment can also be extended with an Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) trial subscription to test combined Office 365 and EMS enterprise scenarios. For the current set of Office 365 and EMS TLGs, see the cloud adoption test lab guides.
It’s time to roll up your digital sleeves and get your hands on these crucial enterprise features of Office 365.
