Microsoft’s recognized Office 365 cloud-based service is a game-changer for businesses.
- Obsolete workstations – decommissioning is easy
- On-boarding – adding new users is a breeze
- Costs are transparent – with an old per-machine approach, it was easy to overlook some licenses over time.
Not too many years ago, companies had to purchase licenses out of the box and physically install Microsoft Office software on workstations.

That alone is saving companies thousands of dollars in human resources labor and oversight costs, on unnecessary license subscription fees.
In addition, even projects that former employees were working on are much easier to transition or decommission as needed. For example, suppose an employee was instrumental in making innovative changes to an intranet over Office 365, where hosting and domains and everything else are coalesced and streamlined by the cloud model. Making those difficult transitions gets a lot easier, because Sharepoint and associated structures are “open and interoperable” in the right ways.
By the same token, with an Office 365 approach, it’s easy for companies to grow and scale.
In the old business world, the idea of adding workers to scale up operations involved some significant inves
