Over the past couple of weeks we’ve been reminded how essential Office 365 has become to leading organizations in many different fields. In higher education, universities are using tools such as Excel and Power Bi for Office 365 to make data-driven decisions that can improve performance and competitiveness, help with funding, and support accreditation. Healthcare organizations are using Office 365 to transform their cultures, improve collaboration, and increase customer satisfaction. And the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the U.S. Department of Labor are the most recent cabinet-level government agencies to adopt Office 365 for greater productivity and better collaboration
One reason so many individuals and organizations are choosing Office 365 is because of the way we keep making it better through continuous innovation, constantly adding new features and expanding the capabilities of the service. In the past two weeks alone, we started rolling out Clutter, a new feature that can help you organize and manage your email, and we announced Skype for Business, which will combine the capabilities of both Skype and Lync to provide a more unified communications solution. We also introduced Office 365 Video, to enable organizations to make video an integral part of their internal communications.
Another reason that so many customers are choosing Office 365 is because it offers the exceptional privacy, security and compliance they value and they trust Microsoft to help them manage their information.
