Microsoft Office 365 has become extremely popular because of the mobility and collaboration it enables. It wasn’t a long time ago when some had written off Office 365 as it struggled to gain market share in the face of intense competition from Google’s rival cloud productivity suite. Today, Office 365 ranks as #1 enterprise cloud service overall and according to our research, 87.3% of enterprises have at least 100 active Office 365 users.
This turnaround shouldn’t come as a total surprise to those paying attention. The Windows Store has a host of useful productivity and business applications. Anytime an app is downloaded, it can be accessed from the Office 365 app launcher. This makes for a superior user experience while ensuring greater workplace efficiency.
However, only 6.8% of corporate users have migrated to Office 365. This is because organizations typically migrate from their on-premises applications to Office 365 in stages in order to gain expertise in managing Office 365 and to address their security considerations before deploying Office 365 to everyone.
We’ve put together this definitive guide to provide guidance and best practices to ensure a smooth deployment while you continue to meet your security, compliance, and governance requirements as data moves to Office 365.
