    File recovering and easy data management from various cloud storage systems and the cost-effective capability on this IBM platform are excellent. Security on the system for the multiple data that are handled through the platform is excellent and the user can easily access any needed data from the cloud and provide useful data reports as well as excellent real-time data analytics.
    Jacintoh Gonzalez | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft 365 Business Premium

    I believe that Microsoft 365 Business Premium is applicable for any type of work or scenario. It's what I like the most about this program. In addition, it is the software that is used the most here in Mexico, and that makes it accessible to all, we should not spend financial or time in training new recruits, they recognize it just by looking at it. Where I think it could not work well is in the use of some devices, such as tablets. In things, it is very difficult to use these programs on manual devices, outside of computers.

    Pros

    IBM Cloud Object Storage

    • Cloud storage allows you to save data and files in an off-site location that you access either through the public internet or a dedicated private network connection.
    • Cloud storage delivers a cost-effective, scalable alternative to storing files on on-premise hard drives or storage networks.
    • Cloud storage services provide elasticity, which means you can scale capacity as your data volumes increase or dial down capacity if necessary.
    • Business continuity of Storing data offsite supports business continuity in the event that a natural disaster or terrorist attack cuts access to your premises.
    Frason Francis | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft 365 Business Premium

    • Work remotely with ease
    • All documents readily available
    • This software can be used on any device
    • Very user friendly and efficient
    • Confidence in Microsoft brand performance and dependability
    • Cost effective with always having the latest updates without having to purchase a new software package
    • Customer service is outstanding

    Cons

    IBM Cloud Object Storage

    • Unexpected errors are known to occur when downloading/uploading files.
    • Not easy to get started. In order to take full advantage of the platform and its features, additional training and reading documentation is needed.
    • The UI of the platform can get a bit confusing and it's easy to get lost.
    Ausrine S. | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft 365 Business Premium

    • The only thing that is a bit cumbersome is that it doesn't seem that you can save files directly to programs like one drive if you aren't using a Microsoft program to generate the document. An example of this would be if I am working in a PDF in our PDF Program I have to first save it to my desktop and then drag it into one drive. I end up with duplicates and that can sometimes make it hard to remember which is the most up-to-date.

    The basic apps are straightforward and easy to use, especially since they have been around so long. I'm referring to the basic apps like Outlook, Excel, Word, PowerPoint, OneNote, etc. Other features such as Microsoft Teams and Sharepoint Sites, Sharepoint Lists, Sharepoint Groups, etc. all require a higher level of knowledge to both implement and use properly

    In the last 5 years, Microsoft has come a long way. The performance of the products has become more and more user-friendly and it seems that the feedback provided by the user community is being listened to and worked on. The processes are very fast and seamless. There are negligible errors and doesn't slow the systems down.

    I have been working in IT sector for more than 15 years. I have worked with various vendors. IBM's sales team, support team have been really helpful. After we start to use their product, their UX design team also contacted us to get feedback from us. They are really interested about our experience.

    As mentioned elsewhere in the review, Microsoft has historically paid attention to community feedback and issues, but timeliness can improve, and so can the addressing of long-standing issues about which many users have said "I have this issue too!" but no official solution exists. For issues that do have a solution, however, the solution is usually not difficult to find, and the explanation of features on Microsoft's website can mitigate many problems.

    I just researching and applying the tools on their platforms to ensure a good learning path, based on my needs. Reading the documentation related with resources, tools. Is too big, but I am trying to know more about it every day. It is a good way to know more about their resources. A new way to attract new customers. At the end of the day, we are all involved in improvement and automation of our tasks and resources for customers and end-users.

    IBM's professional service for migrating data and implementing new cloud environment was perfect. They started to help us before we begin to bring together all data such as how can it could be best to transfer all data without problems. During the migration they watched all the process closely to prevent any failure. Lastly, after the migration, they gave us trainings on implementation.

    Alternatives Considered

    I consider that it is easy to learn, intuitive, easy to administer, has high data handling capacity, satisfactory performance in large volumes of records
    MAURICIO CORRAL RIERA | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft 365 Business Premium

    Before migrating to Microsoft 365 Business Premium, we possessed an in-house exchange server. Therefore, it was difficult for us to look at alternatives to Microsoft for a solution – we did look at the Google Suite of products, but the transition for us seemed less cumbersome to stay with Microsoft from a staff and administrative perspective. While the G Suite does offer us many outstanding products and services, we also didn’t feel that Gmail is up-to-par as a corporate solution the way Exchange/Outlook/OWA are – this alone was also a driving force for our end-users, as there was minimal transition for them to move from an on-premise solution to an off-premise solution. The additional features of SharePoint, Teams, Project, and so many other applications within Microsoft 365 also helped us make a strong case to stay with Microsoft and expand what we were using. The end-user and mobile protections of InTune have also put us at ease when issuing laptops and mobile phones to an almost fully-remote end-user base.

    Return on Investment

    IBM Cloud Object Storage

    • This allows us to recommend a platform to our clients that will quickly help them create new, efficient business processes with very little development.
    • This saves clients hours and days of manual analysis of images, allowing the system to do the work when attaching Object Storage to models.
    • There is a learning curve in utilizing the storage and the modeling, but once up and running, it works well during deployment.
    Dana Rafiee | TrustRadius Reviewer

    Microsoft 365 Business Premium

    • Teams has streamlined our chats within each department so its easy to help out each other when problems or issues arise as well as having chat conversations in real time instead of the slower email option. This is especially handy when peopel are not working in the same space and cannot use a phone.
    • All of our major communications, are done through Outlook email keeping everyone on the same page of issues within our organization or updates coming out for example
    • Excel provides a simple system for creating our schedules, Tracking customer issues, project boards etc. having all these readily available minimizes time spent looking for information and grants more time for customer interaction and increasing service and sales.
