To keep your company growing at the dramatic pace you plan for, it is essential to have your business software applications integrated around a single process, database and network. However, many organizations may not realize that the exact same solutions they have been using before the API was born can also be connected with integrations. For instance, Office 365 already includes a healthy set of features, but that doesn’t necessarily mean its functionality can’t be further expanded.
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. The large part of the cost and time of administration is tied up in common security measures: managing group admission, pruning users, creating security policies and ensuring users have access to network resources. Office 365 moves these tasks to the cloud, but doesn’t necessarily make them easier for users.
