In the modern workplace, the role of technology has never been more important. Technology connects business functions, eliminates silos, and breaks down barriers, accelerating digital transformation in the process. Microsoft 365—a platform that brings together Office 365, Windows 10, and Enterprise Mobility Security—helps Microsoft empower our employees with innovative technology to embrace a new culture of work. Our workplace is diverse, geographically distributed, and highly mobile, with an increasingly complex threat environment. Microsoft 365 is key to creating a secure and productive foundation for a digital culture.
Establishing a digital culture is important to every leader who strives to create a modern digital workplace. It starts with empowering everyone in an organization to be more creative and collaborative, and ultimately to apply technology that helps shape how we work. This cultural shift is top of mind across every organization, and Microsoft 365 was designed to support that endeavor. We use Microsoft 365 to meet business needs and minimize total cost of ownership across the IT lifecycle, from deployment to management and ongoing servicing.
Microsoft Office 365 sits at the core of how our people get work done. The heart of our cloud services, it meets our needs for robust security, reliability, and productivity in the cloud. Our goal is to enable our 124,000 employees and vendors to work anytime, anywhere, and to pick up where they left off on any device.
