What is Microsoft 365?

Microsoft 365 (or M365 for short) is a suite of applications that are available in the cloud. Companies pay a monthly fee per user so that their employees can use these applications. The suite includes classic programs such as Word and Excel, but also other tools that aid collaboration and communication. In order to continue using the full functionality of the Microsoft 365 suite, companies will require a Microsoft 365 license (starting 2020 at the latest). Many companies are already asking themselves whether and how M365 can be used for the purpose of a modern (social) intranet. In our latest e-book, “Can I use Microsoft 365 as a social intranet?,” we answer all your questions, weigh up the pros and cons, and show you the alternatives.
