Microsoft never tires of expanding collaboration opportunities for their customers. While organizations all over the world are still making their first steps in Office 365 collaboration, Microsoft is welcoming a new member to the family: Microsoft 365.
What Is Microsoft 365?
Microsoft 365 was first introduced in July at the annual Microsoft Inspire conference for its partner community. Microsoft 365 brings together Office 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility + Security. It comes with two options: Microsoft 365 Business and Microsoft 365 Enterprise (E3 and E5). While the two Enterprise plans are targeted at large enterprises that are always in Microsoft's focus, the Business plan was built as an exclusive option for small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs).
Currently, Microsoft 365 Business is available in public beta so that potential customers can try it before the solution becomes generally available at the end of the year. So it's just the right time to learn what Microsoft's new offering can provide to its owners and users.
2) A one-stop collaboration shop. Microsoft 365 Business is a great opportunity for small and medium-sized companies to get a centralized solution that can help them adopt a collaboration-oriented approach to their business. This is also an attractive option in payment terms, as organizations will get multiple services and products wrapped into a single bill. It has been already announced that Microsoft 365 Business will cost $20 per user per month.
• Microsoft 365 Business goes with Outlook for inbox collaboration, Microsoft Teams, and Skype for Business for team collaboration, and, OneDrive as a file storage.
• Microsoft 365 Enterprise goes with Outlook, Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business, SharePoint Online, and Yammer.
