From Office 365 to Microsoft 365 – What’s Going to Change?

May 1 2020

Microsoft 365

If there’s one thing Microsoft is unafraid of, it’s rebranding. We saw this play out as Lync became Skype for Business (which gave way to Microsoft Teams), and now Office 365 is becoming Microsoft 365. Right now, the M365 rebrand and updates are primarily consumer-focused, but some updates to familiar office suite applications are available to corporate users as well.

This tool allows us to synchronize our AD (Active Directory) accounts to our Office 365 tenant and by extension the underlying Azure AD Basic services that underpin Office 365. This provides single sign-on, security enhancements for admin accounts, reporting, and self-service password resets for online accounts.
