For businesses of all sizes, the productivity of its employees revolves around the basic office suite – email, calendar, word processing and spreadsheets. However, as the workforce has become more mobile, the basic productivity toolset has had to change and adapt. This is why Microsoft updated Office 365 to be a fully cloud-based collaborative platform ready to get work done wherever and whenever it is required.
On 21st April 2020, Microsoft officially changed the name of its productivity suite from Office 365 to Microsoft 365. The applications included in the various versions of the productivity suite remain the same. However, alongside the standard applications we expect from a traditional Office 365 subscription, Microsoft 365 also includes Windows 10 Enterprise and Enterprise Mobility + Security. This means subscribers get access to a whole range of advanced applications and platforms.
Microsoft 365 is a subscription service that provides users with the productivity applications necessary to get work done in the modern workplace. Thanks to Microsoft 365’s cloud-based structure, the suite of productivity applications is constantly being updated and improved.
Collaboration and communication are fundamental components of productivity in the modern workplace. Microsoft 365 provides the tools necessary to bring collaboration, communication and productivity to each individual in a business.
