|Office 365 Roadmap|
|Wednesday, 22 June 2011|
Thursday, 23 June 2011 10:00a.m. PDTWhen Office 365 releases on June 28th, it will combine cloud services including Exchange Online, SharePoint Online and Lync Online subscription licenses with licenses to Office 2010 desktop software and the Office Web Apps. Like the Business Productivity Online Suite (BPOS) that it replaces, Office 365 promises Microsoft collaboration software with a single, predictable, per-user bill and less management and maintenance that the software would require on-premises. However, Office 365 requires organizations to trust Microsoft and their ISPs with critical IT infrastructure and information, and it does not deliver the same features as the software would on-premises.
This TeleBriefing provides an overview of Office 365 features and limitations, and highlights migration and management considerations for customers.
