Last week, the United States Air Force announced it has selected Office 365 to power productivity and collaboration for more than 100,000 active, civilian and reserve personnel. Through deployment of a Department of Defense (DoD) dedicated version of Office 365, Service members will have access to the comprehensive and integrated set of productivity capabilities Office 365 provides, including email, Skype for Business calling and meetings, real-time document co-authoring, and other collaboration tools.
The agreement is one of the largest commercial cloud contracts in DoD history, and is expected to help the Air Force significantly reduce costs over the next three years. No organization deserves a more enterprise- and security-ready approach than the Air Force. Read more about its selection of Office 365 over on the Microsoft Government blog.
