1 BASICS Simple, Straightforward, and Jargon-Free Answers

2 Contents: What is Office 365? What is Office 365 used for? How much does Office 365 cost? Is Office 365 secure? How does Office 365 stack up against the competition? How difficult is it to migrate your existing files?

3 What Is Office 365? Office 365 is a blanket term for many of Microsoft s cloud software services. The SaaS (Software as a Service) model replaces the old practice of purchasing software and downloading it on the lone computer each of your employees uses at work. The basic idea is that subscriptions to these services give you access to your office 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. So whether you sign in from a tablet or smart phone on the road, a laptop in your bedroom at home, or a desktop in your actual office at work, you can access any of the tools or information you may need. Multiple devices, multiple locations same access. Factoid 68% of workers check their work before 8 am. Factoid 50% check it in bed. 3

4 What Is Office 365? Microsoft offers a formidable array of service bundles under the Office 365 banner, and a lot of confusion arises out of people using the general term to describe several different things. Office 365 Personal is essentially a cloud version of the old Microsoft Office, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Outlook (but now with OneNote, Publisher, and Access). On the other end of the scale, there is Office 365 Enterprise E3, which includes ediscovery and Power BI. (See Compare Office 365 for business plans to see what various bundles include) Factoid 38% of workers check their work at the dinner table. Factoid 44% check it daily while on vacation. Factoid 11% check it hourly while on vacation. 4

5 What Is Office 365 Used for? The table below lists the main Office 365 offerings along with rough equivalents from Google Apps, Microsoft s main competitor, and a brief, oversimplified explanation of their functions: Outlook Office OneDrive Lync SharePoint Yammer Exchange OneDrive Active Directory Power BI Gmail Docs Drive Hangouts Sites Google+ Gmail Vault , Calendar Documents Files and Document Storage IM, Voice, Video Intranet, Collaboration, Sharing Social Updates Business Archiving, Legal Searches and Holds User Access Controls Metrics, Analysis, Graphs 5

6 How Much Does Office 365 Cost? There will likely be costs associated with your initial migration into the cloud. Many companies work with Microsoft partners to develop user stories to help them decide among the various service options. Microsoft partners can also help you migrate legacy archives into the cloud. The table below lists the costs for various subscription plans: Business Plan Number of Users Per User/Month Exchange Online Kiosk Unlimited $2.00 Enterprise K1 Exchange Online Plan 1 Business Essentials Business Business Premium Enterprise E1 Enterprise E3 Unlimited Unlimited Up to 300 Up to 300 Up to 300 Unlimited Unlimited $4.00 $4.00 $5.00 $8.25 $12.50 $8.00 $

7 Is Office 365 Secure? Many business leaders feel a natural reluctance to give up physical possession of their files and documents. Hosting applications and storing files on your business s premises provides an intuitive sense of security and control. But any system connected to the web is vulnerable to attacks. And any datacenter can be destroyed by disasters like floods or fires. The difference between cloud and on-premises datacenters is that cloud service providers expend vastly greater resources in their efforts at securing businesses information than most businesses could possibly afford themselves. Saving your data in the cloud makes it more secure for many of the same reasons that saving money in the bank is safer than hiding it in your mattress. 7

8 Is Office 365 Secure? Security measures include: -Modular Datacenters: All the physical storage components are brought to the Microsoft facilities sealed up in shipping containers, where they remain for as long as they are in use. Only a few people have access to the areas where these containers are stored, and entry is guarded using RFID tracking and biometric controls. -Encryption at Rest: All the data on the physical storage devices is encrypted. -Redundant Storage: If the hardware running your workloads in one container fails, those workloads get transferred to different parts of the container. (If all the hardware in the container goes bad, all the data is transferred to another and the data stored in the original container is deleted.) 8

9 Is Office 365 Secure? -3 Separate Datacenters: If an entire datacenter goes down, Microsoft guarantees you re workloads will be operational again in a second datacenter within an hour. There is a third datacenter as well which can have you operational again in three hours. But if the first two go down we all probably have bigger problems than waiting for our files to come back online. -Password Requirements: minimum characters, 90 day expirations, multiple character types, CAPTCHA prompts and lockouts after multiple failed log-ins. -Multifactor Authentication: When you first sign in on a new device, Office 365 sends a text with a passcode. You have to enter that passcode in addition to your password to access your files. Administrators can set up Multifactor Authentication for any user. ******* 3X 9

10 Is Office 365 Secure? -Remote Wipes can be done from any browser by the device owner (in case of theft) or by the administrator. Administrators can also force passwords on Office 365 files on remote devices. -Information Rights Management (IRM): puts wrappers around ed documents that carry instructions for how they can and can t be used. You can prevent people from opening, editing, printing, copying, or forwarding a document or set an expiration date for it. -Transport Rules: Administrators can create rules to ensure compliance with official standards like HIPAA. -ISO Encryption: applied to all Office 365 data.

11 How Does Office 365 Stack up against the Competition? Office 365 s main competitor is Google Apps (though stay tuned for Apple s eventual push into the market). The expert consensus is that Microsoft s cloud productivity and collaboration suite beats Google s offerings in a few key areas. In one of the most authoritative and comprehensive comparisons, Derrick Wlodarz, who was a Google Apps Certified Trainer and a Google Apps Certified Deployment Specialist, writes about what he discovered after his IT company switched to Office 365 after almost four years using Google.?? 11

12 How Does Office 365 Stack up against the Competition? Here s Wlodarz s basic finding: The battle between Microsoft and Google goes a lot further than who has bigger inboxes, more mobile apps, or whatever new whizbang feature can generate easy buzz. I ve carefully learned that this is more-so a battle of the ecosystems at this point. Who s got the all-encompassing platform that is looking to solve business needs the way your company views them? Who s going to solve your problems today, but offer you a segway to cloud document storage & unified communications & etc tomorrow? Business Problem x Success 12

13 How Does Office 365 Stack up against the Competition? That s the question companies and organizations should be asking themselves. Because it s the realization I ve come to after our two-feet-first jump onto Office 365 a little more than a month ago. Google Apps isn t a bad platform by any means. In fact, it s pretty darn good. But in my eyes, when you view both suites as the sum of their individual parts, as a collective experience, Office 365 takes the upper hand. 13

14 How Does Office 365 Stack up against the Competition? Here are a few more general takeaways: Office 365 apps tend to play nicer with other apps, while Google really wants everybody you re working with to be on Google too. Office 365 is much better when it comes to security and compliance standards like HIPAA. (Wlodarz: I m refusing to recommend [Google] Apps for any clients even remotely associated with the healthcare industry so they don t have to go through the pains I described. ) Lync is much better than Hangouts, Google s unified communications offering. 14

15 How Does Office 365 Stack up against the Competition? The advantages you do get from Google Apps derive from its minimalist user interface. While Office 365 comes in at least eight varieties (see the cost table above), Google Apps lets you choose between just two. Google Apps for business ($5/user/month or $50/user/year) and Google Apps for Business with Vault ($10/user/month). Depending on which bundle of apps you need and other circumstances, Google Apps may also be cheaper. $ $ $ $ $ $ $ 15

16 How Does Office 365 Stack up against the Competition? Some users find the minimalist, one-size-fits-all Google ecosystem less complicated to navigate. So it can be good for businesses who don t have a lot of custom requirements. Finally, many reviewers complain about the Office 365 version of PowerPoint, but it s unclear whether the Google counterpart Slides will be any more user-friendly. In general, users favor the familiar Office tools by a large margin, seeing the Google versions as knockoffs.? 3X $ error 1 st 16

17 How difficult is it to migrate your existing files? Microsoft s philosophy with Office 365 is that it should be able to meet a huge array of business needs. So the platform can be customized to fit any organization s specific productivity challenges. That s both its main strength and its main weakness. The types of companies who go with Google prefer the one-and-done simplicity of choosing a plan. With Office 365, many businesses need help from third-party partners to realize all the productivity and cost benefits. Many companies, for instance, have a lot of difficulties migrating legacy archives into the cloud (but this problem isn t unique to Office 365). Once the ideal plan has been chosen and the migration completed, however, Office 365 is the better all-around solution for most businesses. 17
