A Look at Microsoft Office 365

Yesterday, Microsoft's CEO Steve Ballmer, took the centre stage and launched the next generation of Microsoft's cloud services, the more productive and enriched Microsoft Office 365. In relation to what we can say is a changing business landscape, where its more important to get things done more cost effectively and where a team work is more than required to get things done in time.

So Microsoft has brought all of their best communication and office applications together, to make sure that everyone has a space to work, and work in sync, knowing that all their files, are there when and where they want it to be. You have a Microsoft SharePoint, which lets you save documents, Microsoft Outlook to have all your emails and contacts ready to connect with, Microsoft Lync to communicate via video conferences or calls, and then there are the Office Web Apps, which are exactly the same as you see them in your Home Office or the desktop office version. So here is the Microsoft Office 365 video that was released earlier when the Beta Phase was on.

So as we can see, there is 99.9% uptime, there are these superb broadcast capabilities, so now its no more barriers on how you communicate, and no wonder you can have your own website to make sure those people who want to find you in your organization is made easy, your status updates, your pictures your updates, then there is this Lync that makes it easy to do instant message, video and audio calling and configuring needs. So its The cloud of the integrated world. But this doesn't makes Office 365 the best collaborative suit around, we'll get a comparison on what office 365 has and what the competition of Google Apps have in for the business world.  So Lets see the Official Webcast of Office 365 launch.
