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.

Microsoft Office 365 Skype For Business is the next generation in Business Communications from Microsoft. Skype For Business is the successor to Microsoft Lync. More than just an instant messenger app, Skype For Business enables users to communicate with anyone, anywhere in the world, whether they are on Skype or not. The only thing required to make a successful connection is that the other party has a phone or access to the internet.

Skype For Business incorporates instant messaging, video-conferencing, meeting tools, sharing, phone dialing, and more. Skype For Business seamlessly integrates into Microsoft Office and Microsoft Outlook. Meetings can be started from Word and PowerPoint to present whatever you are working on.

The platform is easy to manage, available across a number of devices and platforms, highly available, and rapidly scalable. Data stored in Skype For Business is HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley compliant. Powerful encryption for all content ensures your data remains safe.

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.
