Making the most of your move to Office 365
Feb 06,2013 0 Comments
Moving to a cloud based solution such as Microsoft Office 365 is an easy decision to make, but successful migration depends on meticulous planning – and integration with a unified email management system delivered from the cloud helps to maximise your investment.
Your organisation’s needs
In these hard-bitten times, organisations are increasingly required to get more for less – to identify and implement new technologies while reducing overheads. It is easier said than done but, when it comes to email management, a transition to cloud-based solution means this challenge is not insurmountable.
Microsoft’s Office 365 gives businesses a cost-efficient alternative to on-premise email infrastructure, and enables organisations to move to the cloud without losing Microsoft’s familiar applications and interfaces. It offers a simplified, streamlined infrastructure along with improved scalability and lower total cost of ownership. It does not, however, entirely remove the need for effective email management.
It is impossible to overstate the importance and value attached to a reliable, robust and secure email service. Research suggests around 60% of people now spend half their working day on email, creating vast and ever-growing repositories of critical information, while around 86% of end users rely on email as a search tool. In short, email and email management have become central to organisations’ daily operational needs.
Indeed, the management of such a fundamental and vital business asset demands a holistic approach. First and foremost your network must be rigorously protected against the constantly-evolving threat of viruses, spam and malware, but data leakage prevention and regulatory compliance is also a necessity.
