Microsoft Online Services
Cloud computing provides the power to connect, enliven, and simplify our daily lives. For organizations, cloud computing makes it possible to lower costs and increase efficiencies. It also creates opportunities to do new things in new ways, like entering new markets, forming new business models, and creating new customer experiences. The cloud provides individuals with the power to organize daily life and collaborate more effectively by enabling anytime access to data on any device.
Microsoft approaches the cloud with a singular vision for improving organizational productivity. This approach gives organizations the flexibility and control to choose the best way to take advantage of the power of the cloud while building off existing IT systems and investments. The cloud can be additive to the applications, platform, and infrastructure your organization has in place today, and can help build off of your existing strengths.
Microsoft Online Services is enterprise-class software delivered as subscription services. Online Services complement your existing Microsoft on-premises solutions for users with desktop PCs and for users accessing applications via a web browser. By choosing Microsoft Online Services you can combine the power of robust desktop-based applications with the flexibility of fully-hosted Internet services, providing an integrated experience with a consistent look and feel from virtually any device, in almost any location.
Microsoft Online Services Benefits
Microsoft Online Services give you the flexibility to determine how and where you deploy and manage your IT infrastructure and line-of-business (LOB) applications. Whether you need on-premise software, hosted in-the-cloud software, or even a hybrid solution, you can do the following:
Combine on-premises and Microsoft hosted services
Microsoft and its partners offer software and services that customers can deploy for a broad range of scenarios.
Ensure that you have the most current Microsoft licensed product versions
Receive the latest features and functionality automatically without having to purchase new software licenses.
By using Microsoft Online Services, you can migrate from a different platform and transition your users without the high up-front hardware costs.
Deploy solutions rapidly
Whether you are responding to changing market conditions or updating your IT infrastructure, Microsoft can help you get your infrastructure up and running quickly.
Lower your up-front investment
Since Microsoft manages the IT infrastructure, it can help you save money on hardware and software expenses so that you can reallocate budget to other business-critical projects.
Get secure and reliable access
Microsoft has invested in a global network of data centers that give you around-the-clock and security-enhanced access to all of your business-critical collaboration services.
Microsoft Online Services are available as stand-alone services and are offered through traditional Microsoft Volume Licensing programs. Customers with more transactional needs can employ the agility and flexibility of the Microsoft Online Subscription Program.
