Microsoft Office 365 Forum

The latest Microsoft Office365 enterprise user group was hosted by Nokia in Helsinki on 27th and 28th February 2013 and organised by h2index. Seven large multinationals attended representing a range of industries including pharmaceuticals, professional services, consumer goods, energy, finance and telecommunications, together with Microsoft for part of the event.

There have been considerable improvements in the Microsoft service which is now clearly robust. Planning the move to the 2013 version of Office365 is users’ current challenge: this is complicated for large corporations and they are struggling to acquire the information they need to prepare.

In addition to the regular meetings, the Group decided to set up additional workshops to explore five issues in greater depth, namely:

  • Security
  • End to end testing and monitoring
  • Business value creation
  • Bring your own device (BYOD) and mobility
  • Planning the 2013 version of Office365

The Office365 forum meets several times a year and the next meeting will be in London in June 2013. If you would like to join any of our forums, please contact us.
