Cloud Readiness Assessment

Transitioning your IT infrastructure to the cloud enhances your efficiency, agility, customer responsiveness, cost optimisation, scalability and security.

IT Champion helps businesses move the right areas of their existing IT infrastructure into Microsoft Cloud through the use of Microsoft Office 365 or Microsoft Azure. Create either a public or hybrid-cloud footprint based on your businesses goals and requirements.

Operating in the cloud is technically different from operating on-premises and properly moving workloads to Office 365 goes far beyond a simple lift and shift by replicating the existing on-premises infrastructure in the cloud.

The IT Champion Cloud Readiness Assessment delivers a comprehensive analysis of existing systems readiness for cloud computing and identifies the workloads and applications that an organisation can move to the cloud. It details the model and cost of the Office 365 services with a clearly designed migration road map.

  • Full analysis of current systems
  • System and application readiness assessment
  • Cost and model forecasting with proposed Office 365 licensing

Office 365 for business FAQ

What is the cloud?

“The cloud” is a friendly way of describing web-based computing services that are hosted outside your organisation. When you use cloud-based services, your IT infrastructure resides off your property (off-premises), and is maintained by a third party (hosted), instead of residing on a server at your home or business (on-premises) that you maintain. With Office 365, for example, information storage, computation, and software are located and managed remotely on servers owned by Microsoft. Many services you use every day are a part of the cloud; everything from web-based email to mobile banking and online photo storage. Because this infrastructure is located online or “in the cloud,” you can access it virtually anywhere, from a PC, tablet, smartphone, or other device with an internet connection.

What is Office 365?

Office 365 refers to subscription plans that include access to Microsoft Office applications plus other productivity services that are enabled over the Internet (cloud services). Office 365 includes plans for use at home and for business. Office 365 plans for business include services such as Skype for Business web conferencing and Exchange Online hosted email, and additional online storage with OneDrive for Business.

Many Office 365 plans also include the desktop version of the latest Office applications, which users can install across multiple computers and devices. The fully installed applications include: Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, and Access. (Publisher and Access are available on PC only.) And you can install them across multiple devices, including PCs, Macs, Android tablets, Android phones, iPads, and iPhones. When you have an active Office 365 subscription that includes the desktop version of Office, you always have the most up-to-date version of the applications.

The Office 365 plans that are online-only are a great choice for certain business needs, and they are designed to work with the latest version of Office, Office 2013, and Office 2011 for Mac. Previous versions of Office, such as Office 2010 and Office 2007, may work with Office 365 with reduced functionality. Get more details about which Office versions are supported. NOTE: This compatibility with Office does not include the Exchange Online Kiosk or Office 365 Enterprise K1 plans.

All Office 365 plans are paid for on a subscription basis, monthly or annually.

“Microsoft Office” is the name we still use for our familiar productivity software. Office suites are available as a one-time purchase and include applications such as Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, which can be installed on only one PC or Mac. The applications are not automatically updated. To get the latest version, you can purchase the product again when the new version becomes available. The latest versions currently available for one-time purchase are Office 2016 for Windows and Office 2016 for Mac. These suites do not come with any of the cloud-based services included in Office 365.

How many devices can I install Office on if I have an Office 365 Business or ProPlus subscription?

Office 365 Business and ProPlus subscribers can install Office on up to 5 PCs or Macs, 5 tablets, and 5 smartphones. You can count hybrid Windows devices, such as the Microsoft Surface Pro, as either a PC or a tablet.

Is Internet access required for Office 365?

Internet access is required to install and activate all Office 365 plans and to manage your subscription account. Internet connectivity is also required to access Office 365 cloud productivity services, including email, conferencing, IT management, and other services.

Many Office 365 plans also include the desktop version of Office, for example, Office 365 Business Premium and Office 365 Enterprise E3. One of the benefits of having the desktop version of Office applications is that you can work offline and have the confidence that the next time you connect to the Internet all your work will automatically sync, so you never have to worry about your documents being up to date. Your desktop version of Office is also automatically kept up to date and upgraded when you connect to the Internet, so you always have the latest tools to help you work. Compare Office 365 plans.

How do I set up my Office 365 services?

IT Champion are experts in helping businesses choose the right Office 365 plan, migrate their critical businesses services over and at proving lightening fast ongoing Office 365 support.

What’s the difference between Azure and Office 365?

Perhaps the simplest way to view Azure and Office 365 is that Azure replaces the back-end infrastructure businesses need such as physical servers, software and solutions that would run on these servers to enable many business services. Office 365 is a licensing model that delivers solutions that end users would use such as Microsoft Office, Skype for Business, SharePoint, Microsoft Dynamics.
