Exilesoft, a global software development company, has begun to leverage Office 365. This robust offering provides secure, anywhere and anytime access to e-mail and calendars, Office Web Apps, instant messaging, conferencing, and file sharing.
As per a report in Sri Lanka’s Daily News, Millennium IT, backed by its team of certified professionals was the infrastructure partner that collaborated with Exilesoft to provide the support and consultancy for the cloud-based Office 365 solution.
In addition, a Microsoft (News - Alert) Exchange online solution was deployed across the entire global organization during the first phase of the implementation. With this suite of solutions n place, the company now has been able to see multiple benefits from a business class e-mail and unified messaging platform that will give its access to important information from almost any device.
"We are already using Microsoft Lync via an on-premise solution and with Office 365 we plan to move to the cloud with a Lync on line solution,” said Johann De Cruz, chief operating officer of Exilesoft, in a statement.
De Cruz said that this is a cost-effective solution that will help the company to serve its customers with better agility and higher security.
“We have found that one of the key benefits of Microsoft Office 365 is the opportunity it provides to choose between a cloud-based, on-premises or even a hybrid of the two that best meets our specific operational requirements," he added.
"Being a global software development company, a reliable and secure IT infrastructure platform is absolute business critical in a competitive global environment,” commented Finn Worm-Petersen, CEO of Exilesoft .
TMCnet recently reported that new academic institutions and medical schools are continuing to leverage Microsoft Office 365 for Education, the company's next- generation productivity service, to improve communication and collaboration across campuses while helping to meet security, privacy and other regulatory requirements as mandated by the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
In fact, institutes of higher learning that have already transitioned to this cloud-based solution include Duke University, Emory University, Thomas Jefferson University, the University of Iowa and the University of Washington. They have all selected Office 365 after a consortium of technology, legal and compliance experts from the academic, public and private sector worked closely with Microsoft to develop a business associates agreement (BAA) to address HIPAA requirements.
