Microsoft adds more enterprise capabilities to Office 365

Encouraging enterprises to adopt a more mobile-first and cloud-first approach, Microsoft unveiled a new look enterprise suite Office 365 E5 with focus on meetings and voice, intelligence, and security and privacy. Chris Capossela, Chief Marketing Officer, Microsoft, while unveiling the new enterprise suite at the company’s annual Convergence EMEA conference, said, “As businesses strive to keep up with the pace of change, they are looking to technology to drive digital transformation.”
“Microsoft can help businesses achieve their transformations by empowering individuals and organizations with innovative solutions that unleash the productivity and potential of their workforce, spur entirely new ways of collaborating, and infuse intelligence into their systems and processes.”

New Office 365 enterprise capabilities

  • A complete meeting and voice solution: With Skype Meeting Broadcast, Public Switch Telephone Network (PSTN) Conferencing, PSTN Calling and Cloud Private Branch Exchange, Office 365 customers now have one platform for calling, conferencing, video and sharing integrated with the Office applications.
  • Analytics and data visualization: Delve Analytics empowers individuals by providing rich, interactive dashboards that surface insights into how they spend their time and who they spend it with, so they can focus on the tasks and people that matter most.
  • Advanced security and compliance: Customer Lockbox offers customers full control over access to their data in Office 365 by giving them approval rights in the rare instances when a Microsoft engineer must request access to the service. Office 365 Advanced eDiscovery brings machine learning and text analytics that reduce the costs and risks inherent in managing large quantities of data for e-discovery.

Create apps in a familiar environment

Microsoft also introduced PowerApps that will help businesses create employee-facing apps of all kinds, from the simplest app — like an employee survey — to long-lived, mission-critical apps that connect to line-of-business systems and cloud services and run on any device. The apps can be easily connected to SaaS services like Office 365, Dynamics, Salesforce, Dropbox and OneDrive in addition to on-premises business systems including SharePoint, SQL Server, Oracle databases and SAP. The service provides a familiar, Office-like experience for creating new business apps and templates.
