Myth 9 about Business to Cloud Migration

Myth 9

I will encounter issues with my critical business applications because Office 365 is updated regularly.

Here is the reality

Panoceanic understands the impact of down time to critical business applications, and the collaborative nature of these applications with Office add-ins. The reality is that Microsoft has said it is committed to compatibility with the tools your business use every day in conjunction with Office 365 by:

• Microsoft delivers the same standard desktop applications worldwide, that includes  the applications you know in an office suite.

• Microsoft takes precaution with their regular updates to Office 365 to not impact critical business applications. They have further stated that over the past 2 years their monthly updates have not changed API or object models. What this means for your business is if your current critical business applications work with Office 2010 or Office 2013, they should be compatible with Office 365.

• Microsoft further ensures their commitment by working closely with leading software vendors providing access to Office 365 updates before they are released to the public to ensure their software solutions are compatible.

• For businesses that would like to test the water first before migrating to Office 365, you can have both Office 2013 and Office 365 installed simultaneously.
