A Few Scenarios

Here are some of the common use cases that we've come across that many IT Network Admins can relate to.


The Problem

You are using small business server 2008 and this needs replacing however there is no longer a Small Business Server product available so this would require purchasing a dedicated ‘Exchange’ server for your email. However Exchange Licensing is expensive and you need dedicated hardware.

Option 1
365 Exchange

£3
per user per month

Switch to Microsoft Exchange on Office 365, use your own domain name and retaining all your email and contacts, with no up-front costs.

Option 2
Internal Exchange Server

£10,000
upfront

Buy a new physical server, install and configure the latest version of Microsoft SBS, buy an Exchange Server License and licenses for all Users on top of that.

Added Benefits of Office 365

No need to ever “upgrade” exchange again as Microsoft keeps the servers updated to the latest version without charge to you.

Also if the internet at your business fails email, will still flow to phones and other devices connected to other networks, whereas with an internal Exchange server all emails would stop if your broadband connection where to fail.



The Problem

Company is running Office 2007 and this is no longer compatible with other internal systems so needs to update to the latest version to stay functional and compliant.

Option 1
365 Business Premium

£9.40
per user per month

Replace capital purchase Office with Office 365 business premium subscription.

Option 2
Purchase Office

£14,350
upfront

Purchase new licenses for all users of the latest Office package, up front.

Added Benefits of Office 365

Business Premium allows you to always install the latest version of the Office Suite. Also included with business premium are lots of other services including, Exchange, SharePoint, OneDrive so allows you to dip-you-toe with other Microsoft Office 365 services.



The Problem

Need a way to collaborate between staff members, customers and suppliers? Maybe need a network for distributed staff and team members to discuss projects? In the past this would have entailed a bespoke project – now it’s available out of the box.

Option 1
365 SharePoint Online

£4
per user per month

Office 365 Business Essentials from Microsoft utilising SharePoint or Yammer.

Option 2
Bespoke Development

£20,000
upfront

Have a bespoke internal collaboration platform built utilising a software development company.

Added Benefits of Office 365

Always up to date, no ongoing costs for development and you can link these systems to external users for anybody with a Microsoft account (Hotmail, MSN etc..). Is fully scalable as runs on Microsoft’s servers so no need to invest in hardware.
