Microsoft 365 Business

I highly recommend Microsoft 365 Business to anyone within our organization, because they already have access to many programs and services that can improve their quality of work. It's a no-brainer in that case. However, it becomes a bit more complicated for people that are outside of our organization that are looking to adopt 365 Business. It would come down to their company size and needs. I believe Microsoft's scale is well suited for large enterprise organizations. Smaller businesses may be happy with an alternative from Google or the likes. It may be more affordable for smaller companies to simply license Microsoft Office, which comes with OneDrive storage and then piece-meal other products that better fit their needs.

  • Might not be compatible with your old systems.
  • Places which suffer from poor Interent problems might not be able to make the full use out of Microsoft 365.
  • Unless using the Office Enterprise plan, one may not be able to control their own data.

The cost savings we realized from moving to this software has us hooked - it does everything we need it to do on a very high level (virtualization, for example) and is very low cost for us.

Microsoft 365 Business can transform a business with everything they offer. However, it may be overkill for some and can come with a learning curve.

Microsoft 365 Business has reliable performance. There is always room for improvement when it comes to speed, but that is heavily reliant on the Internet itself.

Alternatives Considered

Acronis is a great solution and provides a flexible amount of ways to backup and restore data. For software, it competes directly with Carbonite, ShadowProtect, Veeam, and Veritas. Most of these solutions are agent based and require licenses for each. Acronis does a great job for small to medium businesses and matches the features of the other software solutions.

Microsoft 365 business is more expensive than the other options we used. In fact, the alternatives were free, but they didn't quite stack up to what Microsoft offered. It is the most well rounded suite of productivity tools on the market. It was also important that we didn't have issues with files we already had when we upgraded to the new tools.

Return on Investment

  • Easy to configure and install as well as setup.
  • Restorations can be very quick if self provided hardware is powerful.
  • Can require switching products if company has large growth as more endpoints require large cost investment.

  • Well as I said earlier I did get a sale while grocery shopping and I accredit that to the easy remote access this software provides.
