As companies gradually adjust to and recover from the effects of the coronavirus pandemic, IT teams must ensure sufficient support for flexible working arrangements through cloud-based solutions. Microsoft stepped up to the challenge by equipping the Microsoft 365 Apps admin center with powerful features that enable IT administrators to handle these tasks more efficiently.
There are three Microsoft 365 tools that are typically used for office communication and collaboration: Microsoft 365 Groups, Yammer, and Microsoft Teams. While these three are similar, did you know that there are subtle differences that set them apart from each other? Let's take a look at some of these.
Secure logins are a necessity in business, but managing so many user credentials can get tedious. The good news is that you can simplify your organization’s login processes without compromising security by deploying single sign-on.
What is single sign-on (SSO)?
Single sign-on allows you to use one username and one password to provide secure access to multiple websites.
Microsoft Workplace Analytics is a powerful tool that gathers data from Office 365 applications such as Word, Excel, and Outlook, gleaning insights about your employees’ performance. This solution provides a better understanding of how every member of your team spends their time at work and helps improve both employee engagement and productivity.
Microsoft 365 is one of the most widely used business productivity suites today. From email and collaboration to cloud storage and enterprise content management, the robust features of its cloud-based tools and servers are nothing short of useful. Still, Microsoft 365 presents certain security challenges that businesses must address.
Microsoft 365’s plan segmentations are complicated, so here’s a simple primer on what to expect with each suite. This article should provide you with enough information to decide which Microsoft 365 plan is ideal for your business.
Information workers or frontline workers?
Microsoft 365 is the obvious choice if you’re running cloud-based business systems, but the main question is which suite will serve your needs best.
It can be overwhelming to have several windows open to manage your company email, chats, and any cloud storage just to perform your daily tasks. Microsoft Teams helps streamline the basic necessities of office work to help you overcome the challenges of multitasking.
The shift to remote work has not been easy, especially for IT administrators. After all, they’re in charge of supervising and securing workflows, devices, and software to ensure optimal user experience and to keep cyberthreats at bay. They are also expected to deploy IT solutions that are within budget so that costs don’t run amuck.
While most Microsoft 365 apps serve a particular purpose, tools like Outlook Groups, Yammer, and Microsoft Teams can all be used for office communication and collaboration. However, there are a few small differences. Read on to learn more.
With Outlook Groups, every member gets a shared inbox, calendar, project planner, notebook, and document library.
Change can be difficult in business, but it can also usher in a new era of productivity and profitability. Microsoft is shooting for better ways to improve productivity and elevate data integrity with its new Microsoft 365 product.
Microsoft has time and again shown that they are willing to make drastic changes to their products and services in the name of development.
