IT Central Station is now PeerSpot: Here's why

Office 365 Primary Use Case

Law Biddle - PeerSpot reviewer
Vice President IT Services at Allegient Defense Inc

We're using Microsoft Defender for endpoints.

We went that route as we did have an IT service provider, however, they were very expensive. When we did a corporate merge at the beginning of 2019, we decided that we were going to go to Office 365 and do a one-stop-shop. We didn't want to have the on-prem equipment to maintain. 

In our last solution, we were limited as to what we could do for, for example, email addresses for the entire company, which were about 80 people. It was very costly to do that. Therefore, we only had our program managers and our site leads with email addresses.

When we decided to come back over to the corporate side, we wanted to keep the same flexibility and be able to have access to Microsoft for their tech solutions or their tech assistance, depending on what we needed. It gave us that flexibility and we were able to run the company on basically two IT people rather than paying $3,000 to $4,000 a month for IT services from other vendors, such as like Ntiva or something like that.

Office 365 is used for business. We open accounts for startups and existing businesses, we primarily use Office 365 as an email platform. This is essentially what we're doing with Office 365.

Email, Instant Messaging with Teams, Teams Video Conference & Mobile Outlook Application.

Office 365 works very well with Microsoft Windows ECO system without any friction. Microsoft Teams video conference is a very good tool to have instant or scheduled video conferences, the quality of the video and audio is excellent but requires good internet bandwidth. As an email Admin, control aspects are top-notch, it could email quarantine details, block, allow domains, etc. especially Microsoft email filters (Spam, Malware, etc) with a basic standard subscription are on par with leaders in Email filters (Like Symantec, Barracuda, Cisco). These features are really handy for small and medium organizations. Outlook configuration for receiving and sending emails is very simple.

We use it primarily for collaboration across teams. We use it to collaborate either via email or we use Teams quite a lot. For all of our meetings, we are now using Teams. Then we use the planner boards and things in Teams as well for keeping track of the work that we need to do.

I am using the new version, which they launched at the beginning of this year in Portugal. Business Central is the new version of the ERP for Microsoft.

The solution can be deployed on a public cloud and on-premises.

My company implements the solution, but the clients I do projects for usually have 50-60 users.

My use case is mainly the email solution of Office 365. I use the exchange online for my emails, corporate emails. I use OneDrive for saving my data on the internet, and the other good features are Excel, Word and PowerPoint online, which allows me to create online documents. I also sometimes use Microsoft Teams within Office 365. We generally use Teams for our video conference meetings and presentation meetings. We also sometimes use SharePoint to share documents with people outside our organization. I am a cloud security lead and we are users of Office 365.

We use this solution alongside Sharepoint and Teams.

It's primarily used for collaborative work. We use Teams, for example, to stay connected. Word we are using as a word processor. Then for exchanging emails we are using Microsoft Outlook. There are also certain basic analytics that we are using this Excel. We're taking advantage of the whole suite of tools.
