An Overview

Microsoft 365 (formerly Office 365) is a line of subscription services offered by Microsoft as part of the Microsoft office product line. The brand encompasses plans that allow the use of the Microsoft Office software suite over the life of the subscription, as well as cloud-based software as a service product for business environments, such as hosted Exchange Server, Skype for Business Server, and SharePoint, among others.

All Microsoft 365 plans include automatic updates to their respective software at no additional charge, as opposed to conventional licenses for these programs—where new versions require the purchase of a new license.

Office for Business

Microsoft 365 is the productivity cloud designed to help each of us achieve what matters, in our work and life, with best-in-class Office apps, intelligent cloud services, and advanced security.

If you’re comfortable with cloud storage and need Office on more than your computer then Office 365 is worth the spend – it’s more the getting used to paying a subscription for something that used to be a one off purchase that is the barrier rather than the value of the software itself.
