Could Microsoft Office be Replaced by Cloud Applications?

A study released this week has revealed organisations could be wasting money licensing Microsoft Office applications. The conclusion of the study indicated users could be migrated to cloud applications, such as Office365, potentially saving large sums in licensing costs. The study, carried out over 3 months, revealed that 7 out of 10 employees weren’t using any office application heavily; the average employee spending only 48 minutes per day on it. The benefits of using cloud-powered applications include:

Scalability

  • Pay for what you use
  • Scale resources immediately to meet the demand of your business
  • Optional hosted exchange mailbox
  • SAN storage

Continuity

  • Software is centrally managed and applies all updates and patches
  • Failover to secondary servers, SANs, switches, firewalls and routers
  • 24/7 support

Flexibility

  • Access software and applications from anywhere at any time via the internet or LAN
  • Supports all OS/devices to include Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, IOS (iPhone/iPad) & Blackberry

Security

  • End to end encryption on all traffic between the end user and the data centre
  • All data stored in the data centre
  • 24/7 infrastructure monitoring
