Increasingly organizations are moving towards cloud technologies to meet their computer storage and networking needs. Now Microsoft, one of the most prevalent business technology providers utilized by our clients, is incorporating a cloud-based feature as part of the next update of Office 365, its email and productivity suite.
We’re commonly asked by prospective clients, “What are the major differences between cloud and on-premise storage and networking technologies?” Until recently, one of the biggest differences that Office 365 users could expect was not having public folders. Now, Microsoft is attempting to eliminate that difference.
The new Microsoft public folders will offer an easy and effective way to share information across an organization. However, it is important to note that they are not designed for archiving data or document sharing and collaboration.
