Everywhere you look there’s yet another small to medium business (SMB) adopting Office 365. Microsoft provides every incentive to ease your company into its cloud-based office suite. Instructional videos, phone support, installation guide – your transition to Office 365 will be met with hand-holding all along the way.
But the environment you get isn’t necessarily foolproof.
