The newest versions of Microsoft's Office productivity suite are an interesting departure from the Office of old. There are several versions and editions of Office, and each one offers something a little bit different. There's the well-known local desktop version, Office 2016, and the relative newcomer, cloud-based Office 365. The apps in each are comparable, but Office 365 offers more flexibility with its access-from-anywhere model.
Companies and IT administrators need to know what they're getting from the different Office editions -- and smaller shops are not exclusively limited to the Office for Business versions. Businesses must also consider whether to deliver the mobile or desktop version, and they might even find it's time to switch to the cloud-based subscription suite. One bright spot in this migration process is that Microsoft has added security features to Office 2016, so moving off an older version could improve existing security measures. This handbook outlines everything businesses need to know about choosing which Office to deliver to users.Continue Reading
