Microsoft has announced the public beta of Microsoft Office 365, the company's cloud productivity service for businesses of all sizes, in India. Office 365 was introduced in limited beta last year, bringing together Microsoft Office, SharePoint Online, Exchange Online and Lync Online in an always-up-to-date cloud service. The public beta available online allows millions of people in India and across the world to try Office 365 for the first time. Globally, more than 70 percent of the organizations that signed up for the limited beta were small businesses with fewer than 25 employees.
“The Early adoption trends show how well Office 365 resonates with small businesses that want full-featured professional technology, delivered in a way that makes sense for their company by offering them streamlined communication with high availability, comprehensive security and simplified IT management.”, said Sanjay Manchanda, Director, Microsoft Business Division.
Since the introduction of Office 365, more than 1,50,000 organisations worldwide, from independent professionals to large enterprises, have signed up to test it.
