There are numerous collaboration tools available across the Microsoft Office 365 suite and its on-premises equivalents. From Microsoft Teams (just announced near the end of 2016) to SharePoint (which has been around in various incarnations since 2001), IT and business teams have plenty of options for communicating with each other within the Microsoft ecosystem.
Word processors, spreadsheet applications and presentation software were once tools that everyone accessed strictly from a laptop or desktop. Over time, mobile versions became available, alongside cloud-based equivalents that did not require any locally installed components. Google Drive is a prime example of the latter: It can be accessed from anywhere via virtually any web browser.
Staying productive in the modern office requires a lot of technological tools. Employees are expected to get their work done quickly and effectively, and this focus on efficiency has driven employers to search for people with specific skills revolving around popular business platforms. Although there are many of these, one of the most widely used is Microsoft Office 365.
Microsoft Office 365 has become one of the most widely used cloud computing services in recent years, buoyed by its familiar brand, numerous integrations and cross-platform compatibility. A report from Skyhigh Networks revealed that over 58 percent of sensitive data in the cloud was stored in Microsoft Office documents. Plus, this share was expected to increase in the years ahead due to the inclusion of 1TB of OneDrive storage with entry-level Office 365 subscriptions.
