Microsoft Office 365

A Web-based version of Microsoft's Office suite of enterprise-grade applications. Office 365 is delivered to users through the cloud and includes Exchange Online for email, SharePoint Online for collaboration, Lync Online for unified communications, and a suite of Office Web Apps, Web-based versions of the traditional Microsoft Office suite of applications. Office 365 users also have the option of accessing the applications in Microsoft Office 2010 Professional via a monthly subscription.

Office 365 is part of Microsoft’s Software Plus Services strategy, combining the advantages of cloud-based remote computing software options with the company’s traditional base of on-premises software offerings.  One advantage of Office 365 is that it is regularly updated approximately every 90 days without companies having to pay any upgrade fees.

In addition to targeting enterprise customers with Office 365, Microsoft is seeking to meet the needs of small businesses for affordable enterprise-level office applications by pricing Office 365 at $6 per user, per month.
