‘The modern workplace’ is a concept we often come across - but what does the concept really cover? With Microsoft 365, mobility and security are some of the key elements, but the modern workplace is much more than that.
Let's take a closer look at the possibilities of the modern workplace with Microsoft 365.
A modern workplace requires that your employees can work safely and efficiently, even if they are not sitting in their place in the office, but instead work at home, on the train, at a customer's or elsewhere. It requires your employees to have full access to mail and calendar and all their familiar Apps in Office 365 - Word, Excel, Power Point and OneNote - on the go. With Microsoft 365, access is available from PC, mac, tablet and mobile phone, so the tasks can be solved regardless of time and place.
But emails and phone calls are not the only way your employees can collaborate. With Teams, there is access to both chat and video meetings - just as many of us know it from, for example, Skype. Teams work effectively with the tools in Office 365, so it is simple to book a video meeting in the calendar and make screen sharing of documents during the meeting.
When your employees work mobile and from many, different devices, strong tools are needed to handle security. For example, you must be able to define and control who has access to which systems and data, and what the user rights of the various units and the various employees must be. As a further tightening of security, you can also choose to use 2-factor security authentication instead of just a single password.
All this and much more, such as end-point management with Intune as well as identity and access management with Azure Active Directory, is available as part of Enterprise Mobility & Security and is also one of the core components of the overall Microsoft 365 package.
Security and user management are also built into Windows 10, which is considered by many to be the most advanced enterprise operating system.
In Windows 10, for example, there is a built-in firewall and antivirus protection with Windows Defender, which protects your employees and company data against viruses, malware and spyware that come from emails, apps, the cloud and the Internet. Windows 10 is constantly updated against the latest moves of cybercriminals, which Microsoft is spotting around the world and immediately taking its precautions against.
All in all, Microsoft 365 is a really strong solution, which solves many of the tasks in one complete package, which you previously had to handle in several, different solutions. Now it all comes together - and it saves time, and reduces the risk of errors and gaps.
