Microsoft Office 365 is one of the most popular services associated with what we have come to know and love as “the cloud”. It has helped millions of individuals and businesses streamline their operations and boost their efficiency. But just what is Office 365? And how can it help your business?
What is Office 365?
This is the name given to a pool of services and software created by Microsoft. It acts as a central hub, containing many of the famous Microsoft products such as Word, Excel and PowerPoint.
The moving of software and services to the cloud is nothing new, and it has greatly helped business to reduce on their costs, office space and physical server needs. Cloud hosting allows many of the business critical tools that companies use every day to be hosted externally by another organisation, and operates as a virtual hard drive for businesses to utilise.
In this case, Office 365, which contains at least eight key Microsoft tools, allows users to do everything from creating documents to sending emails all over the cloud.
Office365 hosted email
One of the biggest benefits that Office 365 can offer to your business is the hosted email service. Web email hosting is one of the biggest advantages that cloud services have brought to the world of business, and Office365 hosted email is one of the most commonly used tools for this.
Having an external provider host and manage your emails is highly beneficial, as it allows you to tap into the often much-larger servers that these organisations enjoy. Furthermore, you will be offered an additional layer of security and protection, and will experience a much higher performing and more versatile hosting platform.
There are many hosting providers that you can choose to work with, but Microsoft is obviously one of the most popular names in the world of IT. For this reason, Office 365 is an easy choice when looking to move your business to the IT cloud.
