What it is ?
Microsoft Online services essentially consist of offerings ideal for organizations who do not have messaging and collaboration capabilities like Microsoft Exchange Online [e-mail] or SharePoint Online [portals and collaboration]. The key advantage of Online Services is that it will allow businesses to stay in touch with customers, associates and teams across geographic boundaries round the clock and provide instant access to information, thereby enhancing efficiency and reducing costs. Businesses can now save upto 50% of their IT-related costs with the launch of these services.
