Don’t miss the valuable data-protection information in this detailed new White Paper from the experts at Osterman Research.

Here’s the key takeaway: Most Office 365 customers will require third-party products and services to supplement the native capabilities of the platform.

“There is no denying that Microsoft Office 365 is a robust offering with a wide range of capabilities. Microsoft has taken pains to ensure that Office 365 operates with reasonable reliability and that its features and functions meet the needs of a wide range of potential customers. However, as with any mass-market, technology-based offering, there will be deficiencies in specific aspects of the features and function that many customers require. Because no cloud-based offering can be all things to all customers, many – if not most – Office 365 customers will require third-party products and services to supplement the native capabilities of the platform.”

See for yourself:

  • Which missing features in the Office 365 platform to consider supplementing with other cloud-based or on-premises tools
    Drawbacks of Office 365 include limitations related to archiving, retention, data location, security, mobility, mailboxes and OS version. See which shortfalls affect you – and how to overcome them.

  • How third-party enhancements provide more granular or more capable archiving, security and encryption than Office 365’s native capabilities
    For example, only Office 365 Plans Enterprise E3 and E4 offer unlimited archive storage quotas and litigation hold capabilities, which means that users not provisioned with these more expensive plans may require supplemental archiving capabilities to ensure adequate retention of data. See all the archiving, security and encryption capabilities you should consider – to eliminate risk.

  • Why solutions designed to supplement or replace specific Office 365 features and functions will grow at a healthy pace
    While Office 365 provides a useful set of features and functions that will be well received by many organizations, there are limitations that can be managed through the use of third-party services. See the different types of available and emerging offerings – and avoid potential pitfalls.
