We are currently traveling in uncharted territory. Many of you have worked remotely for years, where others are still trying to figure out the logistics of how to physically work remotely. And even if the location of your work hasn’t changed, the feeling or the environment is different. Many of you will be working today with your spouse and kids surrounding you. We have new terms like social distancing and every situation is fluid and evolving. These are new times, so we need new tools to help us find as much efficiency in the way we are working.
As we have discussed over the past few weeks, Microsoft 365 and all that it includes can be quite confusing. It consists of all things Office 365 and so much more. We have given you verbal and visual descriptions of how the two products are similar and how they are different. We’ve broken down many of the essential terminologies as it is used and referenced. Now that you hopefully have a better understanding of the two Microsoft offerings let’s break down the barriers even farther and answer a few of the more commonly asked questions regarding Microsoft 365.
As we have discussed already this month, understanding the differences between Microsoft 365 and Office 365 is quite challenging. Last week, we provided a grid breaking down the differences between the products. To take things a step farther, this week, we are featuring a glossary. Even if you can see the differences, if you don’t understand Microsoft’s terminology, the grid will not truly help you understand the differences.
There is a great deal of confusion when it comes to deciphering the differences between the two similarly named Microsoft offerings: Office 365 and Microsoft 365. Many businesses think they have Microsoft 365 when, in reality, they have Office 365 or even more commonly, most do not understand that there is a difference. In this week's blog, we are visually laying out the differences.
Consistency is the name of the game, and when it comes to naming, Microsoft is King. Unfortunately, with such similar names as Office 365 and Microsoft 365, there is a great deal of confusion on the differences between the offerings. This month, we will compare and contrast Office 365 vs. Microsoft 365. We will break down the high-level differences between the two Microsoft offerings, the difference in pricing, which product will benefit your business, a glossary of terms involved with both offerings, and an essential Q and A regarding both Microsoft 365 and Office 365. Today, we will stay high-level and look and the key differences between the two Microsoft offerings.
Audio conferencing is a non-negotiable in today’s workplace. Today, more than 70% of the professional work-force works remotely at least one day per week. Because so many employees are working outside the office, the logistics of meetings has changed drastically. Many organizations have used audio and video conferencing for quite some time, although the options for conferencing haven't incorporated our current applications. This is why we are so excited about the improved functionality of Microsoft Teams Audio Conferencing.
Microsoft Ignite returned last week to Orlando, Florida and once again brought great excitement to the world of Tech. This conference is where Microsoft announces and demonstrates brand new applications. Many times they tease out these developments at prior conferences, but what makes this conference so unique is we can see the excitement and take it to work for us immediately as these applications are ready for the market. One of the exciting announcements from last week was Project Cortex. Project Cortex is an AI-based application integrated with Office 365 that brings relevant knowledge directly to where you are working.
