Improving the Office App Experience in Virtual Environments
More and more businesses are allowing their employees to work remotely. By allowing people to work remotely it allows your business to have more employees. Employees want to work for a company that allows them to work remotely and by allowing some employees to work remotely you have more free office space to bring in new employees for training. However, a major concern with allowing your employees to work from home is making sure your remote workers stay connected and that your business’s information remains secure. Microsoft 365 has been making improvements to their software to enhance and secure virtual work environments.
Microsoft 365 is designed to help organizations digitally transform workplace collaboration. Many customers that I work with use virtualization, and they’re always looking for ways to cut costs and improve the user experience. To help, we acquired FSLogix last November, and today I’m pleased to announce four new capabilities to further improve the user experience in virtualized environments:
- FSLogix technology, which improves the performance of Office 365 ProPlus in multi-user virtual environments, is now available at no additional cost for Microsoft 365 customers.
- Windows Server 2019 will add support for OneDrive Files On-Demand in the coming months.
- Office 365 ProPlus, our flagship Office experience, will be supported on Windows Server 2019.
- And we’ve added new capabilities to Outlook, OneDrive, and Microsoft Teams in Office 365 ProPlus to improve the user experience in a virtualized environment.
