FICCI migrates to Microsoft Office 365
TT Correspondent |  |  17 Dec 2012

FICCI, India’s largest and oldest apex business organization has selected Microsoft Office 365 over Google Apps to improve its communication and collaboration in the cloud.
FICCI’s migration to Office 365 will enable the organization to add more licenses on Microsoft Exchange and enhance collaboration amongst users in a virtual environment using Microsoft Lync.
FICCI wanted to upgrade its email system from the limitations of Rediffmail server to a more stable platform where data space, service support and security could be achieved. The organization evaluated hosted solutions from Google, IBM and Microsoft, through an in-depth market survey and feasibility study and found the best fit in Microsoft Office 365.

Rajiv Mishra, Additional Director & Head - IT, FICCI stated, “We looked for ways to deliver cloud on our terms along with enterprise-class security, thereby reducing capex. Microsoft Office 365 emerged as a better fit with our overall IT strategy, as it is much more integrated and advanced than Google Apps and offers more of the functionality our employees need. Combined with the extended functionality in Lync Online, Office 365 offers much more enterprise value than Google.”

Ramkumar Pichai, General Manager - Microsoft Office Division, Microsoft India said, “FICCI’s decision to deploy Office 365 across its offices worldwide is further evidence of the enterprise-class quality and scalability of the world’s most popular productivity platform. Office 365 clearly makes Google Apps look outdated when it comes to enterprise-class security and delivering cloud on your terms.”
