Office 365

This item was not updated in last three versions of the Radar. Should it have appeared in one of the more recent editions, there is a good chance it remains pertinent. However, if the item dates back further, its relevance may have diminished and our current evaluation could vary. Regrettably, our capacity to consistently revisit items from past Radar editions is limited.

Office 365 encompasses online services such as OneDrive, Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, ...), Exchange, Sharepoint, and more.

In 2020, we realized that we've reached the limits of our communication tooling. When the pandemic hit, it was clear to us that we need a change, especially to improve our existing remote work toolset. We did an in-depth competitor analysis of different platforms and solutions and finally decided to go the Office 365 way.

Office 365 with Azure Active Directory, Sharepoint, Exchange, and Microsoft Teams & Office power our daily non-development work. The integration of the different Microsoft tools is a big plus and thanks to the MS Graph API, we can easily hook in 3rd party tools for data exchange.
