Our Quick and Simple Microsoft 365 Recommendations

5 Easy Takeaways To Get You Moving Today

1. It's About Both Apps And Services

Microsoft is well known for its confusing naming schemes, and Microsoft 365 is no different, especially as there are separate schemes for home and business products, which are very different and have ostensibly the same names. The key for businesses is to take advantage of both the applications and the services that come with Microsoft 365 Business.

2. Always-To-Date and Cyber-Secure

Microsoft 365 Business Standard subscription includes the Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and other apps (previously, “Office”). Some business are using older versions of Office that were perpetually licensed. Your business will need to move off of those older versions eventually – doing so now gets you the latest versions of the products with the latest software updates.

3. Exchange And SharePoint Are Hugely Important

Of more importance to business are the services included in Basic, Standard, and Business Premium. In particular, Exchange for email, and SharePoint for files. These are the two absolutely critical services for SMEs to use, with them, you essentially guarantee safe storage and transmission of data, save for accidental or intentional damage. They happen to be extremely inexpensive thanks to the scale at which Microsoft operates.

4. Teams Helps Today, Will Become Essential Tomorrow

Microsoft 365 also allows you to use Teams within your business to full effect. Teams is effectively the de facto standard in how to share information both within the business and with people external to the business – as such its use will only become more predominant as time goes on.

5. Backups Are a Blind-Spot

Most SMEs have a blind-spot about the importance of backing up Microsoft 365 data. Whilst Microsoft never loses or corrupts data, data can be lost or damaged by “bad actors”, or simply making mistakes. It’s essential that SMEs look at putting a “cloud-to-cloud” backup solution in place for Microsoft 365.
