INSTRUCTOR NOTESBPOS-S is a great fit for many businesses and identifying those organizations where the core features of BPOS-S add the greatest value is a important factor in the successful implementation of a move to services. In practice, businesses have many specialized implementations and considerations that need to be factored into a plan for moving to online. Understanding the core features and capabilities allows you to quickly determine which businesses will have significant refactoring driving up the costs of adoption and which are better suited to the key capabilities of the services.Microsoft also provides an additional focus on simple management for IT Professionals.

The release of Microsoft Office 365 bring a wide range of improvements and enhancements over the current BPOS serviceA streamlined user experience across the entire serviceNew flexible billing options enables monthly or annual billing options. For Monthly, you can add/remove users as needed and only pay for what you need.New role based access enables more control and management within an organization. End Users, IT managers, Service procurement, user administration, help desk, etc.With the role based access comes a much simpler web interface and a single access portal for all users, weather they are end users or IT managers. each role.Microsoft Office 365 also brings true single sign on experience across all services. No more need for a Sign-in client to access the service, just run the Services Connector once on each PC for single sign on configuration.For more experienced users and more advanced IT control needs, a new Remote Power Shell access is available to manage the Exchange service with the goal of expanding this in the future to other servicesNew Active Directory Federation enables IT managers to manage users from their existing local AD system.For the individual productivity services, there are several changes and improvements as well:Microsoft Office 365 includes the Office Professional Plus suite as a new component to the service. This is the most up to date version of Office applications delivered as a subscription service, on a per person basis. It also comes with the Office Web Apps for viewing and light editing of documents via the web browserThe new Lync Online service combines the previous Office Communications Online with the Live Meeting service for a single integrated service and application.

I’d like to spend a few minutes going deeper on the Microsoft Office 365 for Small Businesses and Professionals offer. First of all you’ll notice that it includes Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Office web applications and Lync Online. It’s a complete experience that, as of today, most small businesses have not been able to take advantage of. Either because they did not have the expertise to deploy all of these products or they didn’t have the budget to do so.The offer is designed for a small business and we think the target customer is about 10 users although the service will scale up to 50 users. We’ve simplified the experience and minimized the levers that an administrator can pull so there’s no real need for IT to manage the service. It’s easy to try, it’s easy to buy, and most importantly it’s to administer and it works great with Office. It also includes a financially backed SLA.Another key feature is the ability for the customer to easily create and manage a public website. We hear time and time again from small businesses, that they are looking to create a professional presence for their organization. Microsoft Office 365 for Small business allows them to do that by creating a public website or by taking advantage of capabilities like Lync Online that allow them to host virtual meetings with their customers or suppliers.Now the last thing that I’d like to highlight on this slide is the naming convention that we’ll be using for the Microsoft Office 365 SKU line up. One of the challenges that we had when we looked at the full range of Microsoft Office 365 SKU’s that were going to be make available, was that it became increasingly difficult to describe what was coming in Enterprise vs. a Pro Plus vs. a standard vs. an individual workload vs. etc. and we realized that we did not have a series of names that we could use to appropriately describe the various skus. So we took a different approach. And the approach we took with naming the various Microsoft Office 365 offers is using first, a nomenclature called ‘Service Plan’ and second, a letter to describe a family and third, a number to describe which sku within a given family that represents. So as you can see on the slide, this is Microsoft Office 365 Service Plan P1. P standing for Professionals and Small businesses and 1 representing the first suite in that line up. When we launch Microsoft Office 365 later in the fiscal year, we will not have a second sku in the Professional line up but we’ve given ourselves the flexibility to introduce additional offers in the future, for example, a P2 and a P3. Finally as you can see on this slide, the Microsoft Office 365 Plan P1 will be priced at $6/user/month, which is a very low price point that allows a small business who has limited IT capabilities and limited IT budget to take advantage of a very powerful set of productivity services.
One of the more important questions that you’re going to ask yourself or talk to partners about is ‘when is Microsoft Office 365 for small businesses not enough?”And there are several key scenarios that are great triggers for you to talk to customers or partners about when Microsoft Office 365 for Enterprises is a more appropriate offer. So for customers using Active Directory for example to sync up their environment or manage their line of business applications… that’s a key reason to direct them to Microsoft Office 365 for Enterprise since Active Directory sync is not supported in Microsoft Office 365 for Small Business.Customers looking for email archiving for compliance or those that are using blackberry devices are more reasons to direct customers to Microsoft Office 365 for Enterprises. If they plan on growing beyond 50 users are already have more than 50 employees that will need the service, or see 24x7 phone support for their IT staff as a key feature and capability or want to use tools like Powershell to manage their environment, those are really key drivers to Microsoft Office 365 for Enterprise.We’re very excited about Microsoft Office 365 for small businesses that do not have these needs, but for those that do, these are some key triggers that will drive a customer to want to purchase Microsoft Office 365 for Enterprise and it’s important that you talk to both your customer and your partners about these key differences.
BPOS customers will all be moved to Microsoft Office 365 over time, starting shortly after Microsoft Office 365 is released. Transitioning to Microsoft Office 365 is designed to be as easy as possible, with the customer deciding when to move.With all the improvements and enhancements with Microsoft Office 365, there are new minimum requirements to prepare for. Most customers should not any trouble preparing in advance for these requirements and since Office 2010 is delivered as part of the service upgrading is simple.
