Taken from the Microsoft Office 365 Technical Blog,
“With Exchange 2010, we redesigned the product with low-cost large mailboxes and cloud services in mind. We then extended this vision through Office 365 where tens of thousands of organizations with millions of users have accompanied us on this journey to the cloud. Now, customers can look forward to the new release of Exchange which offers a wide variety of exciting benefits:
- Remain in control, online and on-premises, by tailoring your solution based on your unique needs and ensuring your communications are always available on your terms.
- Keep the organization safe by protecting business communications and sensitive information in order to meet internal and regulatory compliance requirements.
- Increase productivity by helping users manage increasing volumes of communications across multiple devices.”
Work from your desktop, laptop or phone – whether you’re connected to the internet or not. My personal favorite: offline support in OWA now grants you the ability to launch OWA in your browser and work, even with a spotty internet connection (whether you’re in an airport, at an event or running somewhere between the two), and your emails and tasks are automatically synced the next time you have a network connection. Office 365 now has a new feature that makes it even easier to get in touch with the professional connections you’ve made: import contact information from LinkedIn, and have all that information at your fingertips, in one place. Exchange will consolidate each individual contact’s information across your personal contacts, GAL and other networks to create one master contact card.
