Why Modern Exchange Hybrid?

The question of why should I implement Exchange Modern Hybrid is justified. Exchange Modern Hybrid is specially designed to simplify implementing Exchange Hybrid Mode by eliminating the requirement for inbound HTTPS connections to an on-premises Exchange organization. The technical specifications for Classic Exchange Hybrid are sometimes unsuitable for enterprises. You can read more about the differences between the two Exchange Hybrid modes in ENow's blog post, "What are your Hybrid Options."

Intune Explained

Intune was born as Microsoft’s Cloud based Mobile Device Management platform. Since then, it has grown into a management platform for both mobile devices and P.C.s. Intune can now manage iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, and some versions of Windows. It’s clear that Microsoft intends to grow Intune into a complete cloud-based device management platform.

The process of planning for an Intune roll out can be difficult. The features and functionality within Intune are ever evolving, so knowing how to deploy Intune effectively takes some studying. In this blog post, we’ll provide an introduction into Intune's current capabilities. We will test out what Intune can do to make your data more secure in a “Cloud First, Mobile First” world.

What it is, what it costs, how you'll use it, and if you want it at all.

What is "Microsoft 365"?

Microsoft Office 365 Usage Statistics

Only a statistician loves statistics and I am no statistician. However, it’s interesting to try to track the growth in Office 365 numbers based on the snippets of information released by Microsoft in their financial results and elsewhere. Last week Microsoft talked up their FY16 Q3 (to the end of March 2016) results and revealed that Office 365 had achieved 63% growth in constant currency over the previous year. That’s a pretty good result that demonstrates continuing interest by customers in moving from on-premises Office services to their cloud equivalents.
