You probably heard of storing data in “the cloud” or doing backups to “the cloud”. But do you know what “cloud” computing really means? Let’s start by defining what “the cloud” really is.
“The Cloud” is a friendly term to describe IT infrastructure residing off-premise – likely on Microsoft’s or some other companies’ servers. Then that data can be accessed anywhere there is internet. One way to utilize the cloud is Office 365!
Office 365 refers to subscription plans that include access to Office applications plus other productivity services that are enabled over the Internet (cloud services) such as Exchange Online, Skype for Business, and SharePoint.
Many Office 365 plans also include the desktop version of the latest Office applications. The fully installed applications include: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, and Access. (Publisher and Access are available on PC only.) You can install office across multiple devices, including PCs, Macs, Android tablets, Android phones, iPad, and iPhone.
Today, many people are moving from their local Exchange server or their POP accounts to Office 365. The simple truth is Office 365 has more to offer than everyone else. Here are some of the benefits with an Office 365 subscription.
This is just three of the many different plans that Microsoft offers. No matter what type or size of business you have, there is a plan for you. Give Kirbtech a call today and we would be happy to discuss what Office 365 plan would best fit your business.
