IT announced today it would begin Office
365 Migrations to the new cloud version of Microsoft Office,
codename "Wave 15".
Office 365, brings new features and plans, all based upon the tried
and tested technology of Microsoft Office Professional, Microsoft
Exchange, Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Lync.
"The new Office 365 will allow more businesses to work securely from
anywhere," said John Gilham, Agile IT's Principal Consultant and Cloud
Architect. "With more people working outside office buildings on mobile
devices such as the new Microsoft Surface Pro, and in
geographically-separated locations, Office 365 offers all of the
security, reliability and collaboratve functions of an on-premise
solution, with the flexibility of anywhere access."
All of the component parts of Office 365 have been brought firmly up to
date, with Office 2013 Professional, Exchange 2013 Online, SharePoint
2013 Online and Lync 2013 Online making up the core of the suite. New
applications to the line-up are the addition of Visio and Project
'bolt-on' services, familiar to many in the corporate arena.
Another key feature of the new Office is the switch to 'per-user'
licensing, which offers the ability to install the software on up to 5
devices per user. Recognizing the modern trend for people to work on
multiple devices such as tablets and smartphones as well as PCs, the new
licensing removes the need for separate licensing for each device, as
used to be the case.
"I firmly believe that the new Office 365 is the absolute best choice
for businesses of all sizes who are looking to improve productivity and
reduce costs," continued Gilham. "Agile IT is excited to be part of the
new Office 365 and we look forward to continuing to provide unrivalled
customer service and expertise in migrating new clients to the Cloud."
One of the first ever companies to migrate users to Office 365, Agile IT
is a Tier 3 member of the prestigious Microsoft Cloud Champions Club and
is one of the less than 0.5% of Microsoft partners to hold that
position. In addition to holding six Microsoft Gold competencies and six
Microsoft Silver competencies, Agile IT was awarded "Southwest Area
Cloud Partner of the Year" by Microsoft in 2012 and was ranked alongside
Amazon and Rackspace by Talkin'Cloud as one of the top 100 Cloud Service
Providers in the world.
Agile IT's success is also good news for the local economy, with 100%
growth in the number of jobs in the San Diego area each year for the
past three years, and further recruitment in the pipeline.
Founded in 2006 by a former Business Technology consultant from
Microsoft, San Diego-based Agile IT was one of the first service
providers to deliver fixed price IT support & Office 365 solutions.
Agile IT core focus is helping its SMB and Enterprise clients maximize
their investment in technology systems and solutions using operational
rather than capital expense, to make it a more agile organization. Agile
IT's additional focus in its Enterprise
Microsoft Consulting practice areas: SharePoint,
Dynamics CRM, Exchange, System Center, Lync, SQL & Business
Intelligence, Windows Client & Server Deployment, Enterprise Identity &
Security, and Azure Cloud Service Hosting - provide agile enterprises
with integrated, secure, and robust private cloud infrastructure
supporting strategic line of business applications.
