There is a wide choice of Office 365 subscriptions, including hosted email only, a rented copy of Microsoft Office, and enhanced subscription packages which give access to even more applications. They contain features such as increased storage and legal hold data retention. You can collaborate in Microsoft Teams with colleagues in the same building and customers around the world. You can even design your own applications in Power Apps to satisfy your exact business needs.
As mentioned above, Office 365 is a subscription-based service. It offers all the familiar Microsoft programs but with an emphasis on Cloud integration. You are free to work and share files from virtually anywhere.
Office 365 is a powerful and flexible software package, making efficient and portable working simple and cost-effective. Along with the usual Office applications such as Word and Excel, you can access email and calendars on the go, across all your favourite devices. There is also the capability for instant messaging and video conferencing
Because Office 365 is in “the cloud” there is a misconception that backups are taken care of. They are not. Office 365 is High Availability which means your files and emails are available to you (subject to you having an internet connection) but should you or your team delete a file or an email – it's gone! There are retention policies that can be adjusted, but once the deleted item is out of the scope of these, it cannot be recovered. Unsurprisingly, a whole industry has emerged in Office 365 backups with options available starting at a few pounds per user per month. Customers are increasingly choosing to back up this essential service.
Every customer is different so there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question, sorry. We look after customers who no longer have an on-premise server and who collaborate by having all of their files in the cloud. Similarly, we look after customers who utilise office 365 extensively but still have the requirement for an on-premise server.
