Some information on new Office 365


Many people are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the new Office 365 which is due any time now. With a new version on the way there are of course plenty of questions about what the product contains, what the upgrade path and options are and so on. Here a few resources I’ve found that may answer some of these questions for you.

Interesting that these documents also say:
 
“We'll be rolling out the service upgrade over the course of 2013, and it is completely automated: there's nothing you need to do to prepare your Office 365 service for the upgrade. During the upgrade, email, instant messaging and sites will keep working, and you don't need to reconfigure computers and mobile devices after the upgrade.”
 
All we need now is a date when it will actually be available.
