Office 365 Options
Office 365 is made up of a number of individual Microsoft Server and Desktop applications that are available either individually or bundled together in the form of a Plan. In general the plans offer greater value if you intend to use more than one individual application. Just to add to the potential confusion there are also different versions for SharePoint and Exchange Online, also referred to as Plans. Although it can be a bit daunting trying to identify what Plan you should be signing up to, having this choice does provide you with the assurance you can find the right plan to match your exact needs at the right price point.
