Microsoft Office 365

At the end of June 2011, Microsoft launched its cloud service  office 365

This is a subscription model starting at £4 per user per month which includes:

1. Exchange online – a massive 25GB mailbox for your emails (in hosted exchange)
This will work with almost any email program out there (e.g. Outlook, Entourage, Windows Mail) and keep a contact backup of incoming mail, sent mail, filed mail, contacts, calendar and tasks.
It will also work with most phones / devices – Android, Iphone, Ipad Windows phones and Blackberry to name a few.
The wonderful thing about hosted exchange is that whatever you do on one device will then appear on all your other devices.
So if you create a contact on your phone, it will seamlessly appear in Outlook, if you file an email in Outlook, it will be filed on your Ipad.
Everything you do is constantly backed up and there is a wonderful webmail with look and feel of Outlook 2010.

2. Office professional plus – you get access to Word, PowerPoint and Excel online. You can collaboratively work on documents with other users and word on any device even if it does not have office installed.

3. Sharepoint online – an intranet for your company allowing you to easily share information and documents with your colleagues.

4. Lync online – professional video conferencing.
