New names for Office 365 and Microsoft 365

Microsoft is once again changing something in the Office 365 product portfolio. But this time, in my opinion, for the better. There are also new products for private persons, more about that later, but more important are the changes for companies. These are primarily name changes, whether for good or bad is a matter of personal opinion. Already in the past, customers have often mixed up the names.

Migration from an Office 365 to a new Microsoft 365 Tenant – The approaches to migration

As MCT, I have a developer tenant for Office 365, and this year we are finally getting access to the Microsoft 365 function, i.e. Enterprise Mobility and Security.
