Matching Developments Inside Office 365

Originally published on July 1, 2019, Office 365 for IT Pros (2020 edition) is updated monthly to make sure that content stays fresh. Over the last few years, Microsoft has made thousands of changes to Office 365. That’s a lot of information to track. We made 164 major chapter updates to the 2019 edition over 15 updates released to subscribers.

Written by a team of highly experienced Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals (MVPs), Office 365 for IT Pros (2020 edition) is a practical, hands-on reference, based on experience gained by working in real-life projects with a range of customers since the introduction of Office 365 in June 2011. Because we keep an eye on what Microsoft does inside Office 365, you don't have to worry about making decisions based on outdated material - we do all the work for you.

The Massive Scale of Office 365

Companies are migrating to Office 365 at increasing speed. In April 2020, Microsoft reported 258 million paid seats of Office 365. Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella calls Exchange Online "the gateway drug to the cloud" because email is usually the first workload to move from on-premises servers into the cloud. But as you'll learn in Office 365 for IT Pros, there are plenty of new and exciting advantages to be gained from the wide breadth of functionality that exists inside Office 365.

Office 365 for IT Pros (2020 edition) covers essential business productivity features such as Microsoft Teams, Office 365 Groups, Stream, Planner, Flow, PowerApps, Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and OneDrive for Business. You'll learn about Office 365 data governance, compliance, and eDiscovery, and how to exploit the Office 365 audit log to understand what's really happening inside a tenant. A chapter on Microsoft Information Protection teaches you how to use Office 365 to protect sensitive messages and documents with rights management and encryption.

Two books are included in this package. You'll get PDF and EPUB versions of the main book and the companion volume. The companion volume covers topics like Delve and MyAnalytics that were in the main book (in previous editions) together with other information that we can’t fit into the main book but still consider interesting and valuable.
