SharePoint in the Cloud
It is no secret that the cloud is rapidly changing the way in which organizations approach technology. Microsoft has strongly positioned itself in the cloud sector with the entire Office 365 platform. Customers no longer need to rely on desktop installed versions of MS Office, today they can access all programs online on any device with SharePoint in the cloud.
Reduce your IT burden SharePoint in the cloud
One of the biggest advantages to using SharePoint in the cloud is reducing your organization’s IT burden. On-premises SharePoint farms (2003, 2007, 2010, and 2013) require a significant amount of effort in terms of updating servers, installing security patches, and managing cross-browser compatibility issues for custom design. SharePoint Online is managed in the cloud, which means that Microsoft handles all updates and sever maintenance for you! This benefit is tangible and significant. If your organization utilizes out-of-the-box functionality without custom code, SharePoint Online quickly becomes very self-managed without the need for heavy IT oversight. The end result is reduced cost burden and minimized risk for technology management.
