Over the past several months, I have spoken with many prospects and partners about Office 365. What I have discovered is that there are as many ideas about what Microsoft Office 365 is as there are people I’ve spoken to. I’ve heard “Office 365” defined as:
- The desktop product(s) I use today – I pay for it via yearly subscription
- The combination of SharePoint Online and OneDrive
- Microsoft Office Online apps (Outlook Web Access (OWA), Outlook Online, Office Online)
You’ll see in there a mix of desktop and cloud-deployed products, and the reality is that in the short term you’ll most likely find yourself in a hybrid mode, rather than firmly planted in one or the other. The purpose of this discussion is the modern add-in, though, which only applies to Microsoft Office Online apps.
