Microsoft 365 product name changes

Microsoft has announced that it is changing the names of its subscriptions for small and medium-sized businesses. IT Foundations have summarised these recent Microsoft 365 name changes.

From April 21st 2020, your subscription will now be called  Microsoft 365.  Microsoft has chosen to drop the ‘Office 365’ brand to show that it offers so much more than the Office apps we use each day. 

  • Office 365 Business Essentials becomes Microsoft 365 Business Basic 
  • Office 365 Business Premium becomes Microsoft 365 Business Standard 
  • Microsoft 365 Business becomes Microsoft 365 Business Premium 

How do these changes affect your business?

Right now, it is just a product name change. Microsoft has not announced any changes to features, or more importantly, pricing. This means you will still receive the same features and functionality you already have

These name changes will take place automatically, there is not anything required from your business to enable this. You will notice these changes on your IT Foundations invoicing, as we will soon be updating these to reflect on the recent changes. 

Breakdown of packages

With the name change already taking place, now would be a good time to check which Microsoft 365 subscription your business is currently using and whether or not it is the best option for your business needs. IT Foundations recommends Microsoft 365 Business Premium as a minimum for our customers.
