The Benefits Of Migrating To MICROSOFT 365
Switching to MICROSOFT 365 helps to establish a company’s digital transition a little more. In particular, by reinforcing the use and importance of the Cloud.
In addition, we see that companies use many applications in addition to the business software already implemented and essential for the continuation of the activity. An application for instant discussion, another for project management and task assignment, an application for transferring heavy files, an email server, a tool for sharing calendars, a cloud space… So many services require users to multiply manipulations.
However, a new phenomenon that has appeared in companies called “App Fatigue” or “application fatigue” reveals the shortcomings that the proliferation of applications made available to users can represent. Initially planned to facilitate task performance and communication, this phenomenon will have the opposite effect. These investments will therefore prove to be counterproductive.
Migrating to MICROSOFT 365 will, therefore, not multiply applications or investments. Indeed, all the applications will be available and accessible on the 365 Portal, and gateways will allow users to find documents and files on the various tools via automatic synchronizations, therefore without excessive manipulation.
Finally, automatic and regular updates allow internal or external IT support to focus on other aspects of their business because Microsoft will support these tedious tasks.

After presenting all the advantages of migration to MICROSOFT 365, it is still appropriate to alert you to the need to prepare this transfer well.
In addition to the technical aspects of such manipulation, the project will also have to be thought out from the users’ point of view: how to make their task easier? What are their business constraints? How do we ensure data security? and their transfer?…
The tools and services available in MICROSOFT 365 subscriptions can today be considered essential in the organization of companies.
