No matter the size of your organization, large or small, chances are you depend on Microsoft software for your day to day productivity; but when it’s time to upgrade, could you confidently determine what’s right for your business?
Simply put, the options can be overwhelming. Not to mention, deciding whether you want to operate in the cloud and pay a monthly recurring subscription or stay on-premise and pay a one-time fee. And if that’s not all, you’ll also need to determine which features you want or need, from applications to additional security to device management and capabilities. All of these choices can seem even more difficult to make.
Never fear; the experts at Locknet® Managed IT are here to help demystify the many Microsoft options on the market today. More, we'll delve into the various platforms, their capabilities and the other options available to you. So, let's get started!
So, what exactly are the options available to you from Microsoft, to enhance your workplace productivity?
With similar names and differing versions of each product; Microsoft Office 2019, Office 365 and Microsoft 365, it can be easy to get confused about the differences between these offerings. In addition to the products, Microsoft licensing can, in fact, be just as challenging. Yet, helping customers navigate these matters is what we do at Locknet® Managed IT. So, here's a high-level overview of Microsoft Office 2019, Office 365 and Microsoft 365 features and their differentiators.
Let's take a look.
Microsoft offers several different packages aimed at its business customers, through the Office 365 subscription services. With each subscription service, you will get the security updates you need as well as the latest features and ongoing tech support, all included. The downside is that you may wind up paying ongoing for features you don't really need or want. Office 2019 is quite different, as you will see; a one-time fee you pay up front provides the basics for a single computer.
When it's time to upgrade, it's important to weigh platform functionality as well as your business needs. How to upgrade also hinges on your comfort with Cloud technology, according to our experts at Locknet® Managed IT. Here's their recommended approach.
