Case Study: Office 365 - IIM Bangalore

  1. 1. Staying in touch even after graduating from IIMB! Your complete office in the cloud.
  2. 2. Here’s where it all began in 2004.
  3. 3. Rakesh Godhwani and his batch mates graduated.
  4. 4. They went their different ways. And hardly stayed in touch.
  5. 5. The same happened with every batch starting 1976.
  6. 6. Which was close to 10,000 graduates.
  7. 7. As a result there was no way to get in touch with anyone. To encourage them to offer support. Or to host reunions. Or to discuss ideas. Or even to catch up for old time’s sake.
  8. 8. 4 years after graduating, Rakesh decided to look for a solution to this problem.
  9. 9. He adopted Office 365 to get everyone together.
  10. 10. And because it didn’t need on-site hardware, they could begin immediately.
  11. 11. And dramatically scale up every time a new batch graduated.
  12. 12. Without shelling out too much on technology.
  13. 13. Today, Rakesh is connected with an alumni of 7,000 people
  14. 14. Which helps in… Networking with multiple alumni on one screen Get regular updates on the local alumni chapters Stay active and involved with social feeds Help with campus placements Help with mentoring, coaching, fund raising etc.
  15. 15. Using the world’s best email solution
  16. 16. And Instant Messaging capabilities
