Microsoft is committed to providing customers with world-class productivity tools and that requires both innovation and acquisition. It is a combination of all the features and capabilities that the best minds in the business can develop. Recently there have been some exciting strategic purchases of technology from Microsoft and we should all be seeing that great technology soon, they are:
- Microsoft has acquired Mobile Data Labs, an innovator of intelligent productivity solutions for mobile professionals, including the MileIQ app that automatically calculates business miles and makes it easier for users to file accurate tax deductions.
- Microsoft has signed an agreement to acquire Secure Islands, an Israeli company that is an innovator in advanced information protection solutions. The Secure Islands acquisition accelerates our ability to help customers secure their business data no matter where it is stored—across on-premises systems, Microsoft cloud services like Azure and Office 365, third-party services and any Windows, iOS or Android device.
We are looking forward to seeing the products of these companies incorporated into Office 365 and beyond. If you are looking at Office 365, Integent can help, contact us today and we can get you up and running quickly and painlessly. For even more news on Office 365 see the Office Blogs.
