Microsoft 365 Personal, Family and Business

Compare Microsoft 365 Personal, Family and Business

Many Office users have difficulty working out what Microsoft Office 365 actually is. Frequently it is equated with the “classic” Office product. The users therefore assume that they simply receive Word, Excel and PowerPoint, etc. “from the cloud”. But precisely this aspect comes with new, additional benefits.

What is the difference?

Although Office 365 does provide the actual Office package, this is merely a fraction of the features on offer. The real benefit is frequently underrated or even overlooked entirely. My personal view is that Office 365 creates an integral and strategic direction within the enterprise. Besides features such as Exchange Online, SharePoint Online or Skype for Business Online, Office 365 enables security functions, data analyses, project work, real-time communication, social networks and much more.

Below will be the differences in Microsoft 365 Personal, Home and Business. Different features, offerings, suited for different situations.
