We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"This is a unified business package that helps people be productive in working environments."
"The most valuable feature is Microsoft Teams."
"What was most valuable for me was how simple this solution is to start using."
"The Power BI environment and the integration between Power BI and SQL are the solution's most valuable features. The integration between products is great."
"The flexibility of having a subscription for the Office software, rather than having any upfront costs is the best part of this solution."
"The most valuable feature for us is Microsoft Teams."
"It has file storage, file sharing, a provisioning box, and a SharePoint profile for each user."
"The two biggest value adds of the solution are having the ability to outsource the email and not having to manage the email server. It's just seamless. Having the most current versions all around and having things updating frequently by themselves ensures that everybody's got access to the same software."
"We have really high level of services, performance, availability, and it is stable. Everything works together really well."
"This solution has automated protection from downtime. High-availability is built into every component, and the backups are completely automated."
"Flow and Form components can be improved individually, but it would be nice to see the product take the next step and operate as a unit rather than separate modules."
"There are loads of holes in security and I'd like to see better integration with security products."
"The admin panels have too few samples."
"The solution's licensing framework needs improvement."
"There are various things that you need to use PowerShell to do. That would be good. You could do them through the management portal, rather than through PowerShell. That's the biggest improvement I would like to see."
"The pricing for this solution could be improved."
"Updates to the SQL server with better features are needed to compete with Oracle Database."
"The ability to manage the updates a little better would be helpful. Sometimes end-users will get a prompt in the middle of the day that they have to update. When there's a new update, then their system automatically starts to reboot, which can be ill-timed. Having a little more control over that would probably be welcome. Notices in regards to updates and being able to manage the timing around them or to be able to do it at off-times would be helpful."
"The price of licenses is high and should be improved."
"Depending on which plan you purchase, there are a plethora of applications available to you."
"Compared to buying a license, it is much cheaper and a good buy."
"We do monthly billing, however, I'm not sure what the exact costs are. We may pay around $1,000/month. We started using the Microsoft Teams and we've started doing the conference call feature, so that's another $4 an account and we have a few accounts using that right now."
"USD $1,250 annually for the standard package."
"Pricing can vary a lot due to fluctuations in exchange rates and that is not favorable for planning."
"Now you can select different licenses, for example, if somebody doesn't need all of the features, it would cost $8 USD per month and if they didn't need the email application then it would cost $6 USD per month."
"It works out to be $12.50 per user per month."
"Microsoft 365 Business will be good to have if you have a large organization where you have more than 3000 employees. Other cheaper solutions, like Gmail, are easily available in the market."
