At Inspire, Microsoft today announced Microsoft 365, a new bundle offering that brings together Office 365, Windows 10 and Enterprise Mobility + Security offerings from Microsoft. With more than 100 million commercial monthly active users of Office 365, and more than 500 million Windows 10 devices in use, Microsoft is trying to combine their products and services into a single holistic solution to help organisations succeed. Microsoft 365 will be offered in two variants: Microsoft 365 Enterprise and Microsoft 365 Business.
