Office 365 Enterprise is now avaiable. There are 4 plans available and we are currently preparing the comparision chart for Microsofts newly released product.
The rebranding and launch of Office 365 has been touted by many commentators as an exercise in marketing. It’s far from it. Others have claimed it’s not suitable for small businesses. Nothing could be further from the truth. The new small business offering (Office 365 Plan P1) can bring a massive improvement in productivity without a large IT bill. Smaller businesses running older servers now don’t need to replace these servers and can move straight to the Cloud.
I would venture that it has not been the best period for Google. As Google Apps users move to a more unified service with more features, offerings and numerous 3rd party applications this should have been a great start. Google seem to be reacting to the new competition that Office 365 brings which is a very positive move for them so it must have been a devastating blow when news of Chinese attacks on Google Apps for Government hit the headlines.
