Microsoft offers Office 365 trials in Qatar
Doha, December 7, 2011
Microsoft Qatar has announced that Microsoft Office 365, the company’s next-generation cloud productivity service for businesses of all sizes, is available for trial in Qatar.
The company also announced the first major service update for Office 365 and showcased new customers to the service.
Office 365 brings together Microsoft Office, Microsoft SharePoint Online, Microsoft Exchange Online and Microsoft Lync Online in an always-up-to-date cloud service. The public trial that starts today (December 7) allows businesses and consumers in Qatar to try Office 365 for the first time.
“We’ve been in the cloud for years supporting large enterprises such as Shell and DuPont, but Office 365 takes that same enterprise power and delivers it for small businesses,” said Naim Yazbeck, country manager, Microsoft Qatar located at Qatar Science & Technology Park.
“They can now get the same powerful technology capabilities to match their business ambitions.”
With Office 365, moving to the cloud does not require people to change the way they work because it’s based on the familiar, industry-leading productivity tools people know and trust.
Employees get new ways to work together with ease, on virtually any device or mobile phone, using familiar applications, such as Office, that they already know and love. Business owners get the reliability, security features and IT controls they need in the cloud.
Customers who get started with Office 365 can use the service knowing that when Office 365 becomes commercially available, they can subscribe and continue using the accounts they have set up during the beta period, a statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
