Chapter 1. Why Office 365

Abstract
We plan and design for change. After it happens, we plan for the next change. What drives change? With information technology, there are many factors—lower cost of equipment, better computing power, greater bandwidth, new software, and so on.

Chapter 2. Understanding the End User Experience Using Office 365

Abstract
Office 365 is scalable for all businesses. An Office 365 subscription can be created for 1 user or 100,000 users. Office 365 is the only service that allows any business to have the same capabilities as a Fortune 100 company, at a low monthly subscription. As a business owner, you are no longer restricted from using tools that were only available to large corporations—you have the same capabilities.

Chapter 3. Office 365: The Apps

Abstract
The business environment around us has changed. In today’s workplace, we see that there are at least four age-based demographics that IT services need to support. These demographics have different needs, different views on business collaboration, and different views on how a business needs to commutate with employees, vendors, and contractors. The common bond among all of these groups is apps. As funny as it sounds, when we look at today’s work environment, collaboration, sharing information, and simplification of the job and productivity, it all comes down to apps. The previous chapter offered an overview of a typical workday using the various tools to conduct business. This chapter takes a deeper dive into using the apps, with a focus on collaboration.

Chapter 4. Security Best Practices

Abstract
The cloud is changing the way our businesses operate. Business owners, employees, and contractors work anywhere in the world, work at any time of the day, and use many types of devices to access business resources. Business owners are always looking for ways to manage those resources. The question is how to manage these resources in our new cloud-based economy. What is the impact if you do not manage your cloud identity? The best way to begin a discussion about security is to take a quick look at the security features that are part of Office 365, and explore a practical example as to why security is important.

Chapter 5. Deployment Step by Step

Abstract
In the previous chapters, we walked through the Office 365 features, most importantly, Office 365 security. At this point, the question that we all ask is: How do I get started with Office 365? There are a variety of different ways to get started with Office 365. The key is to remember that Office 365 is like the soup aisle in the grocery store. You need to make sure that you are purchasing the correct subscription, and not a retail version from your local Office supply store. Office 365 is a subscription business service and it must be purchased from Microsoft or an authorized Cloud Solution Provider (CSP). The focus of this chapter is to leverage the information discussed in the previous chapters so that you can completely configure your Office 365 environment. At the end of this chapter, you will have a fully functional Office 365 solution.

Chapter 7. Managing Your Office 365 Deployment

Abstract
Previous chapters discussed how to move your business to Office 365. This chapter is focused on the administration of Office 365. Time is money, and as an administrator, you are looking for the simplest way to accomplish a task. This chapter outlines the common tasks that administrators are asked to perform in the administration of Office 365. These tasks range from renaming users to adding e-mail aliases, to creating shared mailboxes, to changing the subscription type. There are four different ways to administer Office 365: the Office 365 administrator center, PowerShell, the cloud-based tool Nuvolex ( www.Nuvolex.com ), and the local Active Directory managed from your Windows Server. Let’s review these management tools—with the exception of the local Active Directory management, which is beyond the scope of this chapter.
