At its premier event – INSPIRE 2017, Microsoft announced the bundling of Office 365 and Windows 10 together for businesses. Microsoft 365 is a new effort to make available Office 365 Enterprise, Windows 10 Enterprise and other Mobility and Security features via single subscription.
Microsoft 365 Subscription
The Microsoft 365 subscription will be available in two tiers.
- Microsoft 365 Enterprise
- Microsoft 365 Business
The decision comes in the light of response from customers who are more interested in buying Microsoft products as a comprehensive package instead as a separate bundle. Hence, in an attempt to address the commercial needs of both, small business establishments as well as big enterprises, Microsoft introduced this package.
We are incredibly enthusiastic about Microsoft 365 and how it will help customers and partners drive growth and innovation, wrote Kirk Koenigsbauer, Corporate vice president for the Office team.
