In Brazil, being charged on a dollar basis is very expensive, it is difficult to pass this on to the customer. The recent 21% readjustment was abusive.

This is the sort of thing the hard drive resident application never struggled with. Conditional formatting layered up is the sort of thing that causes problems.

Azure, the best cloud for the most people

Reviewed 3 years ago
Pros

Microsoft Azure is the most diverse and easy to use cloud provider out there. The use of networking, compute, and SaaS is all so easily built into Azure. What sets Microsoft Azure apart is that Office 365 is so easily integrated with Azure. Most businesses use Office 365 so that integration with Azure AD is massive for customers.

Cons

The cost. Cloud computing is more expensive then an on premise environment. But you don't go to the cloud for cost. You go for the functionality, HA infrastructure, and flexible options.

Pros

I liked how easily Azure integrates with other Microsoft programs and allows us to store all types of data. It is possible to synchronize local accounts with Office 365.

Cons

It happens that the application is slow, because of what access to the necessary data takes some time. Inconvenient main toolbar. Helpdesk responds slowly.

Best alternative for AWS with some extras

Reviewed 2 years ago

We are curently working towards the deployment of a platform based on Azure, with integration with on-premises Windows Server infraestructure.

Pros

I like that it is very similar to AWS so if you have knowledge in that, you don't need to learn a lot. Moreover, the integration with Office 365 and all the other things from Microsoft is awesome.

Cons

It lacks some maturity in comparison with AWS, in configuration and performance.

Powerful and enterprise-level cloud services

Reviewed 2 years ago

With Azure I can host our enterprise applications with the easy possibility to scale-out and scale-up very quickly if it is necessary. Services like App Service give you an easy and powerful solution to host web applications. Other docker-related services like Azure Kubernetes Services makes deploying and managing containerized applications fast.

Pros

I use Azure (Cloud Computing Platform & Services by Microsoft) everyday for Infrastructure as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform as-a-Service (Paas) cloud computing service models. I like the Azure portal and the tigth integration with other tools and services like Azure DevOps, Visual Studio, Office 365 and Active Directory.

Cons

It could be improve the way to create Infrastructure as Code (IaC). For now Azure Resource Manager (ARM) is the only native way to create IaC on Azure and for a beginner is not so easy: other vendors (like AWS with CloudFormation) offer better experience.

Office 365 - A best platform

Reviewed 3 years ago

Access made easy — Most of our colleagues work remotely, but Office 365 made it possible to access Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc. through a web version, which allows user to open and edit documents easily. We as a data providing organization needs high security and here Office 365 which is built on Microsoft Azure platform offers a reliable and secure infrastructure.

Pros

A user can access Office 365 from anywhere based on his or her availability. Infinite collaboration withing and across organization is made possible which helps maintain productivity. Security features are highly enriched giving extra protection. Software and programs are highly user friendly. There are multiple plans tailored for business. Access to One Drive is provided to every user, which depends on service level offered, mostly up to 1 TB of storage, per user in a cloud environment. Tools like Office 365 Skype, SharePoint and Lync Online helps for better communication.

Cons

Office 365 subscription is mostly cost effective for most businesses, but still it may not work for your business. It has limitations when it comes to email archiving.

Microsoft Office 365 is the best cloud Office suite hands down

Reviewed a year ago

My overall experience with Microsoft Office 365 has restored my faith in Microsoft and that they continue to be an innovative company offering competitive products. It's ever expanding universe of products and services continue to enable me to keep my workflow in one cohesive platform. I look forward to future integration with Azure services including Azure AI and Virtual Desktops.

Pros

Microsoft Office 365 is the best of its desktop office suite combined with online features and functions no other company can offer. It's extremely easy to administer, and the continuous expansion of features and products continues to serve me well. It's priced extremely competitively and offers a great deal of functionality and features. With recent additions of Teams and Planner, I can continue to incorporate more of my workflow into a single platform.

Cons

I do find some of Microsoft's "duplicate" products confusing. Skype/Teams, OneDrive/Sharepoint, etc. have caused confusion among myself and other users.

Microsoft (Office) 365 : Office suiteor products

Reviewed a year ago

I had a nice experience working with M365 especially in a non persistent VDI environment.

Pros

Microsoft 365 formerly known as Office 365 is an subscription based service supplied by Microsoft which covers range of products such as Word/Excel/Outlook/PowerPoint/Access/Publisher on Windows/Mac/Android based devices and also users are provided with 1TB of one drive storage. Microsoft 365 licensing is machine based on Windows10/Windows server 2016 for which machine needs to be registered with Azure AD before it can be used by the users as the machine's object ID gets tagged on the azure AD which will then allow users to use the office suite however on Windows7 it works based on work place join which is in turn based on the user logging on to these machines.

Cons

> Non persistent Virtual machines based on Windows10 and Windows server 2016 are not officially supported by Microsoft especially in the on-premise environments where as it works on Azure when using Microsoft WVD. > Compatibility may be issue for certain applications.

Microsoft 365 review

Reviewed a year ago

The power of Microsoft 365 is remarkable. Compared to Microsoft '97 for example it is super powered! The Data Model, Power Query and Power Pivot, in Excel, enable the analysis of billions of rows of data. You are only limited by the power and memory of your machine. Microsoft 365 compliments Azure, also. Access is leaner but stronger. All of the Office apps use Al in various ways to provide smarter functionality.

Pros

It's accessible from anywhere and high level data security and uptime. Subscription-model means lower monthly costs. Plans are flexible to grow with your business It has automatic updates and always have the latest versions of applications. Familiarity and ease of use for most users who have worked with Microsoft Supremely easy to set up and use.

Cons

It has limited use without Internet and Some industries require on-prem data storage, not cloud-based. Subscription package means you can end up paying for functions you don't use Standard plans cap at 300 users. It's enterprise plans are more expensive. Can be jarring for users to adjust to sudden changes with no warning & functionality on Mac and Apple devices may be different or limited Less customisable for businesses who need flexibility in their infrastructure.

MS O365 offering a powerful umbrella of different applications for business

Reviewed 2 years ago

Recently I've started using MS 365 for business process automation. With the help of Power Automate, Forms and SharePoint applications it is possible to build were powerful workflows for business stakeholders I'm working with.

Pros

I think that a variety of applications within O365 suite constitutes its best advantage. From Outlook, Excel, Word, PowerPoint as simple and commonly known simple office apps to more advanced Azure and Power Automate tools - Microsoft ensures a great environment to run either small or big businesses.

Cons

Personally I feel that Microsoft Forms application should be enhanced. There are a few competitors on the market that offer Form applications with advanced features (eg. Nintex Forms). There are rumors about MS Forms Pro release, but still there's no official date.

Office 365 Review - Technical

Reviewed 3 years ago

I am able to replace Exchange maintenance and costs by supporting users within the portal. Microsoft does the maintenance and allows piloting of new versions.

Pros

I've supported Office 365 in an Enterprise capacity since its inception and like the ability to remove the need for Exchange in smaller environments. That alone allows more time to focus on other systems. The integration with Azure in larger environments makes changes easier and ease of use for Microsoft Office programs allow real time licensing counts.

Cons

The integration with Legacy apps would be my only con.
