Flexible working – work anywhere, anytime from any device Migrating to Microsoft Office 365 allows your employees to access company files away from the office without the need to set up VPNs, saving time and hassle. By moving to the cloud, your staff can work anywhere with only an internet connection required – great for progressive companies allowing flexible working and greater productivity! As all your files are centrally located in a Microsoft data centre, there will always be a single data source. If you make a change to a document at home and then your colleague views the file in the office, they will see the most up-to-date document. Gone are the days of e-mailing different versions of the same Excel document between each other. Your business remains secure Microsoft Office 365 comes with a number of security features that ensure that your business can remain secure in the cloud. Microsoft Office 365 applications are accessed through SSL/TSL encryption so that communications or files are intercepted by someone without authorisation, they won’t be able to read it. Conducting regular security audits, Microsoft continuously monitor their systems for suspicious activity and have a robust incident response protocol in place. Other security features offered by Microsoft Office 365 Exchange: Up to date antivirus signatures. Email protection from malware with anti-spam filtering and antivirus software. Microsoft Trustworthy Computing security measures. Instant upgrades and access to new features As previously mentioned, Microsoft are committed to ensuring that your business remains secure in the cloud. Providing instant updates for all Microsoft Office 365 solutions, you can avoid having to go through the endless cycle of manually updating your business software and rest assured that your network is not vulnerable to be compromised by those looking to exploit older software solutions. You’ll also receive access to new features as soon as they’re launched, allowing your employees to utilise new technologies and solutions to improve their workload and productivity. Larger mailbox storage Every business has an email hoarder (or let’s be honest, many email hoarders!). No matter the nature of the email, it’ll remain somewhere in their inbox, even if it’s spam or can be easily deleted. This can cause issues for in-house servers, which can have their storage filled by old files that are not necessary to the present business function. Provide your employees with the opportunity to keep their files, and ensure that every email they receive can be stored safely in the cloud, thanks to Microsoft Office 365’s large storage capacity.

Azure Virtual Machine sounds technical but it is not once you start to learn more about them. It is another benefit of these VMs, their ease of use and also ease of setting them up. Azure VMs are extremely flexible to customize for any size business. Microsoft Office 365 allows you to choose a platform like Linux or Windows Server, or use a “Quick Create” feature that offers pre-built templates with different configurations to choose from. This makes things easier as you only have to look for a template that fits your needs and use it. All you need is to provide very basic information like name, location, platform image, and password. Here are the three main benefits of using Azure VMs in your business: Scalability: With an expansion in your business or more advanced requirements, you don’t have to buy new or more powerful machines. You can simply customize the Azure VMs into a more advanced machine. Azure VMs allows scalability on-demand, without any need for businesses to add physical resources like hardware and more space. For example, you can virtually customize your machine to add an additional RAM for better processing time, instead of adding more storage physically. Backup and Quick Recovery: Cloud computing is known for its quick recovery and backup solution that was not possible with physical machines. You don’t have to worry anymore about the failure of your hardware. All your data and apps are stored in cloud computing and in case hardware fails, it is shifted swiftly to other hardware areas without any downtime. Cloning: To physically clone a machine is an expensive and time-consuming task, but cloning an Azure VM takes seconds and just a few clicks. As you can save your customized VM as a template, you can simply use the same template to clone it again and again. More info: Azure Windows 10 VM | Windows Virtual Desktop Pricing Regards, Bruce

1) An efficient, easy and accessible way of creating relational databases Microsoft Access allows one to create relational databases in an efficient and expedient manner. Getting started in Access is very simple and quick, once one has mastered the relational database theory needed to create a relational database, one simply has to open Access in order to get started creating tables and relationships. There is no additional software, system resources, or IT professionals needed to help with the installation of components like there are with other database management systems. 2) The learning curve is not as difficult for Access, as it is for other DBMS packages There are many database management systems on the market that allow one to create powerful databases. One can find both open source and paid industry-level database management systems. However, the learning curve, in order to master using these systems, can be quite complex and time-consuming. If one has decided that a career as a database administrator or developer is one’s aim, then as a student or someone learning relational database theory, Access is a great place to get started and one can easily master the theory without being overwhelmed by the actual package itself. Once one has mastered all the skills and theories needed to create databases in Access, one can adapt to more industrial-level packages since one has already mastered the foundation-level concepts. 3) The user interface is the familiar Office interface Often when distributing databases, end users can be put off by or alienated by unfamiliar user interfaces. The advantage of designing and distributing a database developed in Access is that end-users or other developers who want to work on or update the database, will not be alienated by the interface. The interface has all the elements of the Office standard software as well as some of the familiar shortcut keys such as CTRL-S for saving and CTRL-Z for undoing. Often what stops the adoption and usage of database-centered applications and applications in general, is an unfamiliar user interface, so with Access databases, one is unlikely to encounter that particular issue. 4) Functional Form and Report Creation Ability Forms are attractive front-end interfaces that you can create in Access for data entry and a multitude of other purposes and functionality. In most cases, for example, one would not want to allow end-users direct access to the back-end tables that make up the fundamental and critical units of the database, so one can use front-end data entry forms that allow the user to only enter data in certain tables for this purpose. One can also create navigation forms and other types of application-centric forms of Access. You can also format these forms quite extensively and add conditional formatting, charts, pictures, web browser controls, and a variety of other features to the forms you create. Reports, on the other hand, allow one to display data from your tables or calculated fields in a printable manner, as with forms, reports can be customized and displayed in a multitude of ways in Access. In fact form, design, and report creation in Access is quite an exciting topic all on its own. Form design and report creation, is really where the advantages of using Access for data database creation and data analysis become quite evident. A database administrator can, for example, using Access Reports, create printable reports and documents to show management the top customers, regions, and sales amounts from one’s tables on a monthly basis.
