Office 365 is a subscription-based, web-delivered version of WORD, EXCEL, POWERPOINT and other related applications designed to work in a collaborative environment.

In this workshop we will review the wide variety of subscription models and what features and benefits would steer you toward the best fit for your organization. Because Office 365 is tightly related to Office 2013 and Microsoft’s cloud-based storage service SkyDrive, we will explore those relationships and help you understand the total Microsoft Office ecosystem. We’ll also discuss moving Outlook e-mail from your servers to the new cloud-based hosted Exchange.

Most of this workshop will focus on the web-based versions of popular Office applications and how to take advantage of a new world for Microsoft: multi-user editing and collaborative sharing of documents in the cloud. You’ll learn the key differences between computer=based versions of Office and Office 365 and discuss why you might want to migrate from Office 2007 or 2010 to this new environment.

This workshop will be taught by Doug Allen, President of Allen’s Consulting. Lunch will be provided.
