You have probably seen over the last few months that Microsoft has made a few changes to its product offerings – “Office 365 is now Microsoft 365!” This is not meant to confuse the consumer but give them a more comfortable perspective on the offering. 365 has always been, and for the foreseeable future, be solutions that give foundations of Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Productivity Products.
The architecture has evolved over the years as more and more businesses embrace the cloud. Most recently the drive to offer a more tightly integrated “Work collaboration” along with “cloud-based” solutions has driven a rush for the need of a solution provider that is easy and almost a one stop shop.
Although not by any means necessary a showstopper, Microsoft makes a plethora of tools and information available for you to plan your deployment or life cycle changes. I always recommend when starting this endeavor use the “Microsoft Cloud Adoption Framework for Azure”( https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/cloud-adoption-framework/) and if needed consult a certified Microsoft Solution Provider.
