Many Needs - One Solution
What’s the surest way to drive your business to the brink of extinction? Failing to prepare for a predictable future. So unless you like the idea of becoming part of the fossil record, now is the time to embrace the business software that meets the needs of business, today and tomorrow: Microsoft Office 365, the next generation of hosted services that combines the familiar Office desktop applications with enhanced cloud-based communication and collaboration services.

Meeting the needs of a mobile workforce
How many of your employees work nine to five on premises? In all likelihood, it’s a minority or soon will be. Today’s workers are more mobile, opting to work remotely on a flexible schedule. And they’re bringing their own consumer devices into the workplace, expecting to use their personal smartphones and tablets for business.

With Office 365, these mobile go-getters will be equipped to work anytime, anywhere, on virtually any device. The new Office works great across many devices, and it positively blows the doors off on Windows 8 tablets and phones, providing a fully immersive, touch-optimized experience that lets you, for example, pinch and zoom while presenting with PowerPoint or changing your Outlook calendar view. What’s more, Office 365 allows each user to have up to five concurrent installs across their Windows tablets, PCs and Macs.

Meeting the needs of a social workforce
Your employees are not just mobile, they’re social—especially the younger ones, who’ve come of age in the era of Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. So what if you could harness the power of social sites inside your company, using an internal social network to accelerate collaboration and innovation and lift employee morale? With Office 365, you can.

Meeting the needs of a cloud-based future
It doesn’t take a weatherman to forecast cloudy days ahead for business—cloudy in the best sense of the word. There’s little doubt that more and more of your business information technology will move to the cloud in the near future. And with Office 365, you’re already there!

Press and Media have given top marks to Convergence 2013 – largely due to value-based keynotes that included stories from Chobani, Shock Doctor, Revlon and Weight Watchers. If you or anyone on your team couldn’t make it to Convergence this year, you still can participate virtually in the highlights.

Virtual Convergence is a free, online experience for those unable to attend the event in New Orleans. Replays of keynote sessions, general sessions, concurrent and deep dive sessions are available on-demand. The Virtual Convergence site will stay up year-round, and is a great way for customers, prospects, and partners to engage with a broader online community and learn from the topics presented at the in-person event.
