Microsoft Office 365 delivers the power of cloud productivity to businesses of all sizes, helping save time, money, and free up valued resources. Office 365 combines the familiar Microsoft Office desktop suite with cloud-based versions of Microsoft’s next-generation communications and collaboration services—including Microsoft Exchange Online, Microsoft SharePoint Online, Office Online, and Microsoft Skype for Business Online—to help users be productive from virtually anywhere through the Internet.
Microsoft Exchange Online is a hosted messaging solution that delivers the capabilities of Microsoft Exchange Server as a cloud-based service. It gives users access to email, calendar, contacts, and tasks from PCs, the web, and mobile devices. It integrates fully with Active Directory, enabling administrators to use group policies, as well as other administration tools, to manage Exchange Online features across their environment.
Organizations that subscribe to Exchange Online retain control over the messaging services they offer to users, but they do not have the operational burden of on-premises server software. With the Exchange Online hosted plans described in this document, email is hosted on servers that support multiple customers simultaneously. These servers are housed in Microsoft data centers and are accessible to users on a wide range of devices from inside a corporate network or over the Internet.
Microsoft SharePoint Online enables an organization to easily create and manage custom team-focused and project-focused sites for collaboration. In addition, it’s possible to deploy an organization-wide intranet portal used to disseminate information and news across the organization.
Microsoft Office 365 is a subscription service that provides you with the latest version of the Office desktop applications that you’re already familiar with, such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
Even though Office 365 is a cloud-based service, Office applications don’t run in the cloud. Instead, users download Office applications from the Office 365 portal and install them on their local computers.
Microsoft uses Click-to-Run technology to make the download and installation of Office applications fast and simple. Click-to-Run uses virtualization technology to run Office applications in a self-contained environment on a local computer, which allows users to run Office applications side-by-side with earlier versions of Office.
Microsoft Skype for Business Online is a hosted communications service that connects people anytime and from virtually anywhere by delivering the collaboration capabilities of Skype for Business Server 2015 as a cloud-based service. It gives users access to presence, instant messaging, audio and video calling, rich online meetings, and extensive web conferencing capabilities.
Organizations that subscribe to Skype for Business Online retain control over the collaboration services they offer to users, but they do not have the operational burden of on-premises server software.
