What is Microsoft 365?
If you’re not sure what Microsoft 365 is, I’ve written an Office 365 overview that outlines the business and enterprise versions of Microsoft 365. You can find that overview here.
Microsoft is the master of bundling products. They did it with Office, by bundling their productivity apps. They did it with Office 365, by bundling Office with Exchange Online, OneDrive for Business and Skype for Business. Now Microsoft is foreseeing another successful product bundle with Microsoft 365.
In this blog post, I’ll expand on and introduce all the Microsoft 365 plans that are available. So anyone reading this, whether working in a business, organization or government agency can see the plan that best suits their work needs.
