The last few months in the new job have been super busy. The Office 365 team is passionate, customer focused and agile. Just in the last few months, we’ve made a number of investments. As a result, I haven’t been able to blog as much as I’d like. I’m stepping away of some of the WPC activity right now to share some of the new investments we’ve made in Office 365. Below are just a few examples:
Office 365 for Government. Office 365 for Government is a new multi-tenant service that stores US government data in a segregated community cloud. You get all the rich functionality that Exchange, SharePoint and Lync have to offer at very attractive pricing.
Office 365 for Education. We offer Office 365 for Education A2 plan for free! This is incredible value for education institutes. Microsoft has a history of providing great value to education, and this is just another example. To learn more about the different plans, check out @ http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/edu
Security and Standards. We support a wide array of industry standards including ISO-27001, EU Model clauses, HIPAA-BAA and FISMA—just to name a few. Check out the new, improved Office 365 Trust Center to learn more.
Geo Expansion. Office 365 is available in 88 countries and 32 languages and we’re looking to expand even more in the future.
Feature Improvements. We have been adding value to Office 365 on a monthly basis based on customer and partner feedback. You can follow the updates @ http://community.office365.com/en-us/wikis/office_365_service_updates/974.aspx.
If you’re a Microsoft customer or partner and haven’t checked out Office 365, I highly recommend checking it out. If you have feedback, I’d love to hear it – feel free to tweet me @arpanshah.
