Why Microsoft 365 is a Solid Option for Businesses

Why Microsoft 365 is a Solid Option for Businesses

Microsoft 365 has been on the market for a while now, and we thought it would be a good time to go into the different tiers of the platform to give you an idea of what it is, why it is useful, and how your business fits into the latest cloud platform offered by Microsoft. Let’s start with what it is.

Microsoft 365 is a cloud-based bundle that includes a virtual Windows 10 desktop, access to Microsoft 365 applications, OneDrive storage, and access to security features including device management and app and data security. It is the most comprehensive cloud-based package Microsoft offers and comes in three major products that have their own tiers. They are:

  • Microsoft 365 Business
  • Microsoft 365 Enterprise
  • Microsoft 365 Education

Let’s take a brief look at Microsoft 365 Business.

This version of Microsoft 365 is built for small and medium-sized business use. Whether the company is new and has no tangible computing resources to speak of, or if it just wants to simplify its billing and move to the cloud, Microsoft 365 for Business is a good option. It comes with the following software:

  • Windows 10 Pro - Operating system
    • Windows 10 Business - Used to control devices and their security

For larger organizations or for educators there are additional options.

Perfect for the enterprise project team that needs the computing resources to excel right away.

Microsoft 365 Education is designed for the classroom. Educators can provide more powerful tools, without the huge capital investment that many schools simply cannot afford.

Teachers and administrators have full control over the platform, providing them unprecedented control over their in-classroom curriculum.
