Microsoft Office 365 is a cloud based product suite that includes popular applications such as the Office suite (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.), SharePoint, Exchange, Teams, Planner, Delve, Yammer and many others. Office 365 is provided on a subscription basis, also called "Software as a Service" for companies of all sizes.
The Office 365 tools can be used to strengthen collaboration and knowledge sharing in and between companies and organizations. At the same time, they are the basis for increasing productivity for both the individual employee and the entire company.
Office 365 tools are constantly being expanded and improved, and one of the great benefits of a SaaS solution is that new features and enhancements are automatically pushed out to users. Thus, long upgrading projects are no longer needed.
An investment in Office 365 is also an investment in increased security and easier compliance with GDPR-related requirements. The tools in Office 365 include a number of security-related features, as well as a number of specialized security products included in the Office 365 superstructure called "Microsoft 365".
Implementation, value realization and change management
Our approach to Office 365 is focused on using standard tools and configuration rather than development. An implementation of Office 365 is as much an organizational as well as a technical implementation.
The value of an investment in Office 365 is realized only if the users actually use the new tools. With new tools comes new and exciting opportunities and it requires focus on change management.
