Microsoft 365 is the way forward. There’s no doubt about it.

The cloud-based office suite of programs, which used to be called Office 365, is now the recommended way to get Word, Excel, Teams and more. Microsoft 365 and Office 365 are available in a variety of plans to best meet the needs of your organization. If you’re looking for the differences between the plans, including Exchange Online plans, this Modern Work Plan will show you which features are included in each of them.

Business Need

Today’s workplace is no longer defined by traditional boundaries. The workforce of today wants – and needs – to communicate and collaborate with one another on the devices of their choice, in the time zones of their choice and in the office spaces of their choice. This kind of business evolution, paired with a growing digital maturity and advanced technologies, brings the need to organizations to change rapidly to capture the value in alignment with the intended business outcome.

At the same time, the focus of many IT departments has shifted away from maintaining a functional environment to transform complete business processes through smart technology investments.
