Office 365 Gets a New Name

Office 365 Gets a New Name

Microsoft has been a major player in the productivity space for decades. Their Microsoft Office platform was one of their first (and one of their most successful) products. Recently, the software giant rebranded their cloud-based Office 365 platform to Microsoft 365. Today, we’ll tell you what that means for consumers. 

There are three distinct delivery models for Microsoft 365: Home, Business, and Enterprise. There is some confusion because Microsoft had launched a business-and-education-centric product by the same name in 2019, but that product has since been discontinued. Let’s take a look at the current Microsoft 365 offerings:

Microsoft 365 Home

There are two packages of Microsoft 365 Home and they include the following software:

  • Word - Microsoft’s word processing application
  • Excel - Microsoft’s spreadsheet application
  • PowerPoint - Microsoft’s presentation building application
  • OneNote - Microsoft’s note taking application
  • Outlook - Microsoft’s email application

On Windows 10 PCs users also get access to Publisher, a typesetting application. The subscription also includes OneDrive with 1 TB of cloud storage and access to Skype, Microsoft’s video conferencing application.

The home edition of Microsoft 365 is available per user or in a family plan that provides up to six separate personal accounts. 

Microsoft 365 Business

For businesses, Microsoft 365 comes in three different packages and includes the Office package as well as access to the following applications:

  • Teams - Microsoft’s collaboration application
  • Exchange - Microsoft’s email, scheduling, and task management application
  • SharePoint - Microsoft’s project management application

Microsoft 365 Business comes in Business Basic, Business Standard, and Business Premium. The basic edition only provides access to web-hosted applications, while the Premium package includes Microsoft’s Intune software and additional security features.

Microsoft 365 Enterprise

The enterprise edition of Microsoft 365 is a comprehensive suite of tools to help fuel the modern business. On top of the standard Microsoft 365 Business Premium package, Microsoft 365 Enterprise also includes access to:

  • Microsoft Bookings
  • Microsoft Yammer
  • Microsoft Stream
  • Microsoft Sway
  • Microsoft’s task management suite
  • Advanced analytics
  • Device management
  • Identity management
  • Threat protection
  • Advanced compliance

...and more.

The platform comes in three separate services levels: E3, E5, and F3.
