Filling the Gaps in Office 365
The title of this white paper notwithstanding, Osterman Research wants to make it
clear at the outset that we believe Microsoft Office 365 to be a robust and capable
platform, one that will serve most organizations well. If your organization is using
Office 365, we recommend you continue to do so. If you’re not using it, we
recommend you consider it. Microsoft offers a large, varied and growing number of
features and functions in Office 365, and at a wide range of price points that will
satisfy a number of different markets.
That said, decision makers evaluating the efficacy of Office 365 to meet their
business requirements must be aware of its shortcomings in the areas of data
protection, archiving, security, encryption, authentication and eDiscovery (among
others) covering workloads like Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, OneDrive for
Business, Skype for Business, and Azure Active Directory. An awareness of these
shortcomings enables decision makers to plan for the mitigations required to assure
the proper business performance of Office 365.
