Microsoft Office 365 is Microsoft’s latest product that represents a shift toward cloud based storage and computing. It was first tested late in 2010 privately with certain companies, and was subsequently launched officially on June 28, 2011. It is a subscription-based service, and customers have access to Microsoft products such as Exchange, Lync,Sharepoint and all of the Microsoft Office applications.
Office 365 first started off as being a business service, but the opportunities for selling to the mainstream consumer quickly became evident. Now, Microsoft Office 365 comes in a variety of packages that vary depending on the needs of the purchaser.
The most attractive aspect of Microsoft Office 365 for consumers is that information is stored in the Cloud. This allows for the software to be continually updated, and customers have access to their information wherever they go. Furthermore, included in the package is extended cloud storage space and 60 minutes of Skype calling. Conveniently, Office 365 Home Premium, which is targeted at ordinary consumers and families, can be installed on up to five computers. Other features include the “Click-to-Run” system which allows for faster application loading times and the “Office on Demand” feature which allows the temporary streaming of any Microsoft Office 2013 on any computer that does not have Office applications. This is useful on computers that do not have Microsoft Office installed but need to open a Word document, for example.
As previously mentioned, Office 365 can be used by a wide range of customers. Some of the smaller packages include Office 365 Home Premium and University, which do not include services such as InfoPath and Lync. In the University version, the price is discounted, but it can only be used on two devices under a four-year contract. After this, there is the Office 365 Small Business version, which includes Microsoft Exchange, Sharepoint and Lync. It is intended for businesses that have less than 10 employees. As the editions get larger, you ultimately arrive at Microsoft Office 365 Enterprise. This is intended for large businesses and customers have access to all applications in addition to specialized compliance and support from Microsoft.
Microsoft Office 365 is the next step in Cloud computing, and for the consumer that is ready for the shift, it is an attractive product. To many it may seem just like an online version of Microsoft Office, but the usefulness of being able to access your information from any computer cannot be understated.

As a Windows Champion blogger, I do not receive compensation, but I do receive resources, information and tools in order to test and use Windows-based services.
I had recently seen an advertisement for Microsoft Office 365 and was wondering what it offered. As someone who works from home, I, too, understand the necessity of being about to access your programs on multiple computers and devices. Thanks for the review.
I think this is the best version yet, the features are amazing!!
I need this, my new laptop came with the starter version and I need to upgrade to the complete version so I can use all of the features. So much fun
I like the idea of being able to share between devices, and Mac too.
This is something I need to install on Hubs dino computer. The features are comprehensive and def seem very user friendly.
