Office 365

What is office 365?

Office 365 is the subscription services package, managed and provisioned in the Cloud, which Microsoft is using to tie together its most successful desktop, server, and online applications for businesses. Applications in Office 365 include the traditional desktop ones such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote; traditional server-based ones such as SharePoint and Exchange, and business versions of online successes such as Skype, OneDrive, and Yammer. Office 365 makes its component applications available from anywhere, on any device – by using just a browser or with a richer client. Office 365 umbrella also includes Office 2016 desktop and mobile device installable applications purchased under a subscription plan. Millions of organizations have now moved to Office 365 making it the dominant business application in the Cloud.


Office 365 is the platform for now and future, with more and more applications coming under its umbrella. Several Cloud-based applications that people prefer for office and personal use are already in Office 365, with even more features. Lately, Microsoft has been adding new features in Office 365 first before these features are included in later on-premises version, reversing the previous process. The browser versions of applications, Office Online, are catching up on features of the full desktop versions. Even consumer licensing of Office 2016 for desktops has been converted to a subscription-based program called Office 365 for Home.
