Microsoft 365 will replace Secure Productive Enterprise
As announced by Satya Nadella at Microsoft Inspire partner conference, as of 1st August 2017, Microsoft is going to rename its comprehensive productivity suite Secure Productive Enterprise into Microsoft 365. However, this will be more than a simple change of the name.
The currently available Enterprise edition (E3 and E5) will remain in place and receive more enhanced features:
Unlocks creativity by enabling people to work naturally with ink, voice and touch, all backed by tools that utilize AI and machine learning.
Provides the broadest and deepest set of apps and services with a universal toolkit for teamwork, giving people flexibility and choice in how they connect, share and communicate.
Simplifies IT by unifying management across users, devices, apps and services.
Helps safeguard customer data, company data and intellectual property with built-in, intelligent security.
Microsoft will also introduce a Business edition for up to 300 users later this calendar year:
Helps companies achieve more together by better connecting employees, customers and suppliers.
Empowers employees to get work done from anywhere, on any device.
Protects company data across devices with always-on security.
Simplifies the set-up and management of employee devices and services with a single IT console.
For small businesses with no or few IT professionals Microsoft 365 can be a very attractive solution. With increasing globalization, a constantly growing number of mobile devices and new, highly advanced security threats Microsoft 365 is one single solution that can help businesses meet many of these challenges. Microsoft 365 integrates features from Office 365, Windows 10 and Enterprise Mobility + Security for a secure and productive workplace enabling small and medium organizations as well as large Enterprises to reach their full potential.
