Microsoft Office 365

Microsoft Office and Office 365 are constantly changing to address your unique needs and requirements. For example, a variety of Microsoft products have been integrated with Office 365 to increase productivity and efficiency in your office. And that’s just the beginning of the evolution of Microsoft Office and Office 365.

Here are 6 impressive facts about the evolution of Microsoft Office and Office 365:

1.     Microsoft Has Renamed Various Services

Microsoft’s cloud-based storage service, known as SkyDrive, has been renamed OneDrive. Similarly, SkyDrive Pro has been renamed OneDrive for Business. What’s the reason for these new names? A court ruling occurred over a trademark dispute with BskyB, a British satellite broadcaster. While the changes may confuse some users, Microsoft changes the names of products and services fairly often.

2.     Microsoft Has More Plans for Lync and Skype

In May 2011, Microsoft purchased Skype for $8.5 billion. Shortly after purchasing Skype, Microsoft implemented voice connectivity between Skype and Lync in 2013. According to Kirk Gregersen, Senior Director in Microsoft’s Business Division, the company plans to provide video integration and various other features between Skype and Lync in 2014.

3.     Yammer Will Be Integrated Into Office 365

In 2012, Microsoft acquired Yammer, a social networking company, with the intent to keep the company separate from Microsoft. However, Microsoft has integrated Yammer into Office 365, primarily SharePoint. The integration enables IT pros to replace the typical SharePoint Server 2013 social experience with Yammer. This can be done using SharePoint’s central administration console to activate the change, then users will be redirected to the company’s Yammer network.

4.     Microsoft Will Release New Applications and Features in Office 365

During the SharePoint Conference 2014, Microsoft showcased a few new updates for Office 365. First, Microsoft will release Office Graph, an “intelligence fabric” that analyses content, activity, interactions, and maps relationships on Yammer. Microsoft also showcased a new application, known as Oslo, which uses the Office Graph to collect relevant information about Office 365 users from SharePoint, Yammer, Office, Exchange, and Lync.

In addition, a Groups feature will be added to Office 365, in order for users to create a group of conversations, calendars, emails, and files. These groups can be accessed by members and used to collaborate.

5.     Office 365 Has Become Microsoft’s Fastest-Growing Product

Microsoft’s Office 365 has grown at an impressive rate. In fact, Office 365 has experienced triple-digit customer growth for 18 uninterrupted quarters. According to Gregersen, approximately 25% of Fortune 500 companies are using Office 365, as well as 60% of financial companies and 70% of manufacturers.

6.     Office 365 Packages are Available at an Affordable Low-Cost

In January, Microsoft partnered with GoDaddy to offer affordable Office 365 packages worldwide. Shortly after, Microsoft released a set of three Office 365 packages available through GoDaddy. The cheapest package is available for $3.99 per month, which offers 5GB of email storage, 2GB of cloud storage, calendar, and contacts email syncing for small businesses.
