Microsoft Office 365 is a collection of cloud-based, pay-as-you-go applications and platforms. They all have their different uses and advantages. Depending on what you are trying to achieve in your organization, an Office 365 product may or may not be appropriate for the task.
SharePoint Online is an excellent tool for promoting collaboration between teams and team members in the organization. Files can be shared, viewed, and manipulated online. Files can be simultaneously edited by multiple users at the same time. Workflows, calendars, timelines, and a myriad other tools can be integrated into the online workspace.
SharePoint Online delivers all the powerful features of SharePoint without the associated overhead of managing the infrastructure in an on-premise deployment. Flexible management options ensure that you still retain the control you need to meet the compliance requirements of your organization.
The platform is easy to manage, available across a number of devices and platforms, highly available, and rapidly scalable. It comes with an included 10GB of space + additional 500MB per subscribed user. Additional storage space can be purchased for a very low price. Data stored in SharePoint Online is HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley compliant.
The most difficult part of the process is that of selecting the appropriate licensing, and achieving a successful migration from your existing service to Office 365. That is where we suggest you work with a knowledgeable and experienced IT provider, like TRA Consulting, to assist in facilitating the necessary changes. TRA Consulting, Inc. is a Microsoft Cloud Partner and Subscription Advisor.
