Learn the product before you jump in, it is very powerful, but that means it isn't always easy to manage. Changes can be simple as checking a box, or as complicated as sending PowerShell code, best to know how to use the features you want before you move everyone over.

Office 365 has got variety of subscriptions. Very good option for small and medium business. Office 365 email solution is excellent, very good admin control console to enable security features to inbound and outbound emails. This is part of basic standard subscription itself. As the subscription modules goes up, the security features are too notch. Email spam and malware can be integrated with third party solutions like Symantec email cloud security or barracuda or any other solution. Without any hesitations one can go for this...

Overall excellent product with great features, consider small and medium businesses to have at least basic ATP and DLP features.

In the next release, I would like to have a more intuitive tutorial. I would rate Office 365 a ten out of ten. There's nothing else like it.

I'd recommend the solution to others. They should just take the product and start using it. It's fantastic having everything in one place. I'd rate the solution ten out of ten.

We're just a customer. We do not have a partnership with Microsoft. I'm not sure which version of the solution we are currently using. I'd recommend this solution to other organizations. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

Learn a bit before you try to use it. If you are going to experience the best features of it, get to know it first. Don't just ignore it. I would rate it a six out of ten. I use it minimally.

I would recommend it because it's rather user friendly and we don't have any particular problems. I would recommend it to a company without a problem. A need that a company like ours has is that we want to be able to have data flow into one tool, for example, for all the management of tasks through the company and workflow of who is doing what and so on. There are no real solutions for this at the moment in Office 365. It would be nice if they could implement this in the next release, so we can have one solution from one company giving us the whole data and flow of data into the company. I would rate Office 365 an eight out of ten.

We're a Microsoft customer. We don't have a business relationship with them. I believe I'm using the 2019 version of the solution. While this version is on-premise, it's my understanding that the organization is testing the cloud version for future deployment. I would certainly recommend this product to others. I'd rate the solution nine out of ten.

We're just a customer. We don't have any business relationship with Microsoft. We're using the latest version of the solution. I'd recommend the solution. It's very easy to use and extremely practical. We find it quite useful within our organization. We don't use any comparable products, so it's hard to rate the solution in comparison to alternative offerings, however, generally, I'd rate the product nine out of ten.

The advice I would give to others who are looking into implementing Office 365 is that this solution is a good one for anybody needing a scalable, stable solution with good uptime. It is virtually a worry-free solution especially from the standpoint of IT administrators. On the scale from one to ten, with one being the worst and ten being the best, I would rate this product as a nine-out-of-ten. I would rate OneDrive as a nine as well.

If you need, reach out to MS support. They were really helpful in setting things up for our team.

Microsoft Office is a basic tool in consulting. I have implemented macros, specialized Office tools, and applications for it using Visual Basic. I usually need to design tools for our clients, because I want to give them a really good product. It needs to be more than Excel, alone, because it has to be easy to enter data. There are also calculations that happen in the background, and we do not want the client to be harassed by things that they do not need to know. The mission of the Office is to do small computations. It is a tool for small documents and spreadsheets, and I think it's perfect for what it's meant to be. On the other hand, there is always something that can be improved. I would rate this solution a four out of ten.

The advice I would give depends mainly on their requirements. If they need to minimize their administration, Office 365 would be an excellent option. On a scale of one to ten, one being the lowest and ten being the highest, I would rate this product a seven.

The version we are using is very generic. It requires that you perform a lot of customizations. I rate this product a 7 out of 10. I give it this rating because it works but it's not sophisticated enough and not specialized enough for health care. It requires a lot of time to customize.

It is a nice service that lets us share information easily. Look into the security and cost of the solution before purchasing.
