Why Microsoft Office 365? Important Arguments

Many companies are currently putting their IT environment to the test. Reasons for this are, for example, growing cost pressure, an increased demand for flexibility in processes, and higher safety requirements.

Cloud solutions offer a flexible and cost-effective approach. Therefore, it is today no longer a question for the majority of companies whether to use cloud solutions or not. Instead, it is a matter of how quickly and to what extent they gain experience with these new technologies in order to be able to use them profitably.

Microsoft Office 365 is one of the best solutions for starters. Many advantages arise from using Office 365. These include, for example:

  • editing, sharing and releasing documents and applications from anywhere and with most terminal devices
  • always working with the latest product versions thanks to automatic updates in the background
  • elimination of maintenance and operation of the own IT infrastructure, Microsoft takes care of this thanks to provision in their own data centers
  • availability of 99.9 %
  • if required, even higher levels of data protection in accordance with the German requirements thanks to the Microsoft Cloud Germany
  • flexible rental fee due to individual licensing – pay only for what you really need
