Many of the clients I work with are making the move to Office 365 from Office 2010, or a mixed environment of various Office versions. In either scenario they are making a leap to a new version of Microsoft Office providing their users with more flexibility, the opportunity to work more efficiently while increasing user productivity.

Keeping ahead of technology’s constant changes and advancements is tough enough. Just when you think you’re in step with the latest and greatest, it veers sharply into unfamiliar territory.
Tech is ever changing, making it difficult to stay current. It can also be difficult to know when something is a fad versus the next big, important advancement.
IT professionals and end-users often see technology from different perspectives. You’re likely to be more concerned with all the mechanics and logistics.

I recently spoke with an HR person at a mid-sized company, and an IT leader at a smaller non-profit organization. Both conversations were about Office 365 training for their employees.
It's probably obvious that when you introduce a completely new software platform at your company you should have a training plan ready. But what you might not have realized is the importance of establishing such a plan when you're rolling out a newer version of something familiar—such as Office or email software.
The truth is when migrating to newer versions of software, training can help prevent productivity loss. Beyond that, short training sessions can help users maintain their skill sets while highlighting new features that can boost their capacities of using the software.

You can’t go a week without hearing about a well-known business making the move to Office 365. Microsoft highlights many migrations on their Microsoft Office Blog. While many enterprise size clients have a direct line to licensing questions with Microsoft, the small to mid-size businesses are often times working with a Managed Service Provider (MSP) or even trying to figure out costs on their own.
We post lots of great Office 365 tips, early looks and highlights on the newest features. We are, after all, a Microsoft Partner and early technology adopters by nature.
