Are you ready to expand your business, but not ready to pay for more servers? Are you compelled to turn away certain projects because IT cannot keep up with your business needs? If yes is the answer, you will be glad to know of a solution, Office 365 that can help you stay ahead of the competition, and free-up IT so that you can focus on being better and faster than your competitors.

Office 365 is not only simple to use, but provides you with ‘virtual' anywhere access to your emails, documents, and people, so you can respond quicker to customers. Although, Office 365 offers several benefits, here are the three major benefits that you will experience on your Microsoft Office 365 migration:

Enhanced Security

Microsoft Office 365 is designed to meet enterprise security requirements, offering robust security features that put customers in control. Here's an overview of the different Office 365 security features:

· Microsoft Office 365 works with Information Rights Management that enables customers to avert issues such as document sharing, editing, and manage content expiration.

· Microsoft Office 365 with International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) Support provides with the maximum level of data isolation to federal agencies.

· Microsoft Office 365 offers robust password policies such as complexity and length combined with account lockout.

Reduced Costs

At present, almost all the technology infrastructure is quite expensive to maintain on premise. The trend is slowly moving towards monthly rental charges for these services at considerably lower cost than buying and maintaining hardware and software. The server hardware you purchase today typically will be out of warranty within a few years. And then you will also face issues related to new operating systems and application software and compatibility which will also include many software updates, hardware failures and backups along the way. Moving to Office 365 not only allows you to escape the hardware and software costs, but also enables you to evade maintenance and disaster recovery along with all backend upgrades. According to industry experts, it has been observed that moving to the cloud allow enterprises to typically see an average of 40% savings over a period of 5 years.

Supporting Benefits of Office 365

Note that your migration to Microsoft Office 365 automatically provides your users with the state-of-the-art features and versions of the cloud software and collaboration tools. It also eradicates the burden of software and hardware management so that IT resources can be utilized on other important areas of a business. Not only this, Microsoft Office 365 is compatible with almost all prior generations of Microsoft operating systems, and hires prominent security technologies to guarantee user identities for authorized access from various devices, such as smartphones, laptops, and tablets.

So, being aware of the various supporting benefits of the cloud will allow you to maximize your migration to Office 365.
