What Is Office 365?
Office 365 is the brand name used by Microsoft for a group of software and services available with a subscription.
Most Office 365 subscription levels include a cloud implementation of SharePoint, or more accurately SharePoint Online.
That implementation of SharePoint online is automatically created when the subscription is activated but not configured in a particularly useful manner.
Why SharePoint Online?
- Reduce cost by achieving access to SharePoint functionality with vastly reduced ownership costs.
- Reduce risk with a platform to which Microsoft is committed.
- Achieve compliance with SharePoint document and records management features.
- Increase efficiency with a collaborative platform.
