Microsoft Office 365
Microsoft Office 365 is a subscription-based bundled-offering that includes licencing as well as hosting on Microsoft’s servers and is supported by Microsoft. For small users this is often sufficient but for SMEs and larger enterprise organisations, the standard Microsoft offering may not be sufficient. Qubic provides the service in a way that suits the needs of the organisation.
First, transition or ‘on-boarding’. Qubic will work with you to understand how you want to work with Microsoft Office 365, what you want to do with existing emails and office files and how you want to work going forward. Once the plan is agreed, we will undertake all of the work against an agreed timescale to move from your current configuration, through transition and on to a steady state with Microsoft Office 365.
Where you chose to store your data is important particularly with regards to the Data Protection Act and specifically following the EU declaring Safe Harbour – the treaty that enabled data to be transferred to the US from Europe for storage – invalid. Microsoft does not have any datacentres in the UK for Office 365 Customers, in fact they announced in November 2015 that they would start building datacentres in the UK in 2016.
