Office 365 is Lighting a Fire Under DaaS!
Cloud services are here to stay and IT organizations are finding them more and more irresistible.
What’s not to love as you begin adopting Salesforce.com, WorkDay, ServiceNow and even more turnkey cloud services to run mission critical operations within your business? You get to shut down legacy application infrastructure in your own data centers, reduce your CapEx footprint and take a cloud-first approach to any new IT projects going forward.
Most IT teams have already moved some of their server-based workloads to their favorite private cloud or to a public cloud such as Azure, AWS, or Google. These moves deliver many benefits, like replacing CapEx with OpEx, reducing your data center footprint, and eliminating the worries around power, air conditioning, spinning drives, redundancy, certain elements of security, and more. You’re also no longer over-provisioning your data center resources and staff to handle the surge – you’re now leveraging just-in-time elastic cloud services instead. Well done!
Cloud Services, Not Cloud Science Projects
With cloud adoption accelerating, Office 365 is the latest and most obvious next choice. Remember the days when you installed and operated your own Exchange Mail Servers, your own Skype Servers and Network File Servers? If you’re still living in that world, take a closer look at Office 365, there’s another way.
Office 365 is a cloud service that runs in Microsoft Azure. You pay a monthly subscription that provides your users with always-up-to-date Office applications, including Outlook, PowerPoint, Excel, Word, OneNote, Publisher and Access. And you can install them across multiple devices, including PCs, Macs, Android tablets, Android phones, iPads, and iPhones. It also provides all the back end cloud services for their email, voice communications (Skype) and file sharing (OneDrive). Your users can access these services securely from home or on the road and all from their own devices (BYOD). Did you notice in that design you’ll find no IT spend on network bandwidth and user devices? Imagine that.
