There is so much confusion today among end-users and IT Pros about the Microsoft Cloud products, that we thought we would pick up on last month's discussion about what they are, and when to use one versus another, i.e. Office 2019 vs Office 365 apps vs Office Online apps. Also how is Microsoft 365 different from Office 365. Will there be a Microsoft 365 for the consumer? Will desktop versions of the Microsoft Office products go away? Join us in the discussion to try to clarify these products and their future in the world of Microsoft. We will also share how you can join our Azure Fundamentals self-study group.
