Microsoft announced new improvements to Microsoft 365 and SharePoint Online on Monday that will be rolled out to subscribers. The improvements, primarily for end users, are starting to appear for Microsoft 365 tenants who choose to get so-called “targeted release” updates. Targeted releases must be tested by a small group of users before they are deployed more broadly. Some of the new features may slide into December, the announcement said. New features like SharePoint page performance and My Feed.
There’s a lot of talk and there’s more than a little confusion about Microsoft’s offerings since the release of Microsoft 365 earlier this year. Before I go into the differences between Microsoft 365 Business Premium and Standard, we first look at the Microsoft 365 platform. Microsoft 365 is an all-encompassing suite of cloud-based productivity tools. All Microsoft 365 subscriptions include cloud-hosted Exchange (email server), OneDrive, SharePoint, and Teams. Furthermore, all services and applications integrate with each other in one way or another. For example, the Teams “Files” tab is a SharePoint document library associated with the team/conversation. The best choices in Microsoft for business are Microsoft 365 Business Premium or Microsoft 365 Business Standard. There are clear reasons to choose Microsoft 365 Business Premium over Standard, and with just over €6 extra per month it’s more than worth the price. What’s the difference between Microsoft 365 Business Standard and Premium?
There’s a lot to be said about consistency in product names, but if you have dozens of products with multiple versions of each, similar names can quickly get confusing. We’re looking at you, Microsoft. The confusion began as follows: In 2017, Microsoft introduced Microsoft 365, a bundle of existing products under one license, aimed at businesses. The name was similar to the existing Office 365. In fact, many people accidentally mentioned Office 365 as Microsoft 365, so it’s easy to see how the two products were mixed up.
Remote mobile employees still need tools to share and collaborate with each other. Business teams want to work together and get the job done efficiently. Microsoft SharePoint Online helps with that. SharePoint is used in science and education, law and government, finance, computers, electronics and technology verticals. The largest market share worldwide is in the United States. Other top markets include Canada, the United Kingdom and Australia.
Microsoft’s SharePoint Syntex is a new feature of SharePoint online that promises to automatically extract metadata from documents, making it easier to find and categorize information. SharePoint Syntex, currently in preview but with general availability promised for October 1, is the first product based on a broader technology unveiled at the 2019 Ignite event called Project Cortex.
