Timing: 5 minutes Key Points: By supporting business-ready devices—whether they are corporate or personally owned—you can enable your employees to use the devices they want to get their work done. You can also take advantage of the latest hardware innovations to empower your field workers with access to their information from virtually anywhere, anytime. Microsoft is introducing a whole range of devices ready for business use:Windows 8 x86 devices provide the convenience of a tablet and the power of a PC: users can move between personal and work activities effortlessly, while IT benefits from enhanced end-to-end security and management and virtualization advancements.Windows Phone 8 smartphones provide an enterprise-ready mobile experience designed to complement Windows 8 devices, including a built-in Office Hub and robust security technologies.Windows RT devices are ideal companion devices for the business user, complete with support for side-loading LOB apps, as well as virtual private networks (VPNs) and virtual smartcards for corporate network access. Script:Today’s employees have tremendous choice in the devices they use to do their job. Hardware innovations are making devices smaller, lighter, faster, and more secure than ever. Soon there will be thin and light tablets and ultra-portables that start and run faster than today’s PCs. PCs will come in a variety of form factors, from tablets, to convertibles, to ultra-portables, to all-in-ones—and smartphones will equal PCs for diversity of design. Many of these devices will be optimized for touch, making computing more natural, engaging, and easy to use on the go. What does this mean for your business?Supporting business use of these new devices—whether personal or companion devices—will mean your people can use the devices they really want to get their work done.For your field workers in particular, you can provide small notebook computers, tablets and smartphones so that people can access their information from anywhere, at any time, and perform day-to-day business tasks without having to return to the office or a workstation.A full range of exciting new business-ready devices and form factors will hit the market this year with Windows 8. With Windows 8 tablets (specifically x86 tablets), users will no longer have to choose between convenience and productivity. Windows 8 is designed for touch, but a mouse and keyboard will still work great. Users can have the convenience and mobility of a tablet along with the power and familiar experience of a full PC and move effortlessly between work and personal activities. They can also have a connected experience with apps from the Windows Store while continuing to use the desktop LOB and productivity apps that they use today with Windows 7. Furthermore, Windows 8 introduces new possibilities in mobile productivity: with Windows To Go, users can have a fully managed corporate Windows 8 desktop with them on a USB stick wherever they go; with DirectAccess, users can access the corporate network without a virtual private network (VPN) [now with easier deployment for IT]; and built-in mobile broadband in Windows 8 will help mobile workers get connected to the Internet more quickly. In addition, Windows 8 offers the enterprise:Enhanced end-to-end security. From client device to network to back-end infrastructure, and from the moment you power on to the time you shut down, Windows 8 offers features to help improve the security and reliability of the systems in your organization. Management and virtualization advancements. Windows 8 includes enhancements to manageability and virtualization features to help IT administrators manage their client PCs. Enterprise-ready smartphones will complement the new devices powered by Windows 8. Windows Phone 8 isn't just a great phone for business. It's an extension of the Windows ecosystem and an integrated part of a Microsoft-wide mobile computing story. It's easy to deploy and manage in a Windows infrastructure so employees can communicate and contribute right out of the box. And with support for on-premises Windows Server, Exchange Server, SharePoint, and System Center Configuration Manager as well as Office 365 and Windows Azure, Windows Phone 8 fits well with what you already have and know. It's built on the same trusted core as Windows 8 and has a built-in Office Hub, which means that your employees will have a consistent productivity experience across device types. You can also expect the same robust security technologies—such as trusted boot, full device encryption, information rights management, and application sandboxing—on Windows Phone 8 devices to help you protect your business information.Windows RT companion devices round out the business user experience. Business users will also love to use Windows RT devices. Windows RT devices feature long battery life; thin, sleek, and light industrial design; and a high-quality and predictable experience over time. The real advantage of Windows RT as a companion device for business users is that it shares a common base with Windows 8, so users get a consistent experience with their primary Windows 8 PC. Windows RT also includes Office applications pre-installed—and you get commercial rights for use automatically if you already have Office licensed through Software Assurance for a primary device. You have the option to build your own LOB apps that run on both Windows 8 and Windows RT (which can be side-loaded to avoid making them public through the Windows Store—we’ll talk more about that later), and Windows RT comes complete with support for VPNs and virtual smartcards, so you can enable access to the corporate network.
Timing: 1 minute Presenter Note:Consider sharing a demo of Windows to Go to complement this slide. Key Points:Regardless of device—PC, tablet, smartphone, Windows To Go USB drive—users should be able to connect to both their personal content and corporate content.Windows 8 allows users to stay connected to cloud services and enterprise servers behind a firewall at the same time, continuously and transparently. Script:As we mentioned previously, today’s users don’t want to have separate devices for their personal and work lives. They want to be able to keep tabs on work projects from virtually anywhere they might be and from whatever device they are using, and they want to be able to access their personal content even when they are “at work.” Windows 8 is all about enabling mobile access to both personal and corporate content, whether someone is using a PC, tablet, smartphone, or even public or borrowed computer (by using Windows To Go USB drives, as we discussed earlier). From virtually any Windows 8 device, users can access personal content stored and managed through personal cloud services. Equally, they can access content behind an enterprise firewall, continuously and transparently—whether those are corporate cloud services or documents stored on an enterprise server.
Slide purpose: Use this slide to welcome your guests and to set their expectations for the presentation. Presentation purpose:This presentation is designed to help you introduce the new Office 365 SKU,Office 365 Midsize Business, to the TDM and/or BDM of midsize businesses under 250 users, who want core communication and collaboration capabilities, and IT control. The deck starts with business pains, then go into how Office 365 can solve those pains. Your goal as presenter is to achieve the following:Introduce yourself and demonstrate the value you can bring to the customer.Highlight the solution and scenarios of the new OfficeShow that you are someone who can discuss Office 365 solutions knowledgeably.Expand your conversation to Project and Visio if it makes sense (see appendix slides)How to present this slide:Leverage the content below to explain what the audience can expect from the presentation.What can customers get from this presentation?Learn about the features and benefits of Office 365 and the cloud.Get immediate feedback on their questions and concerns about moving to Office 365 and/or the cloud.Talk to someone who understands IT and specific business needs.Get directions about taking action and next steps.
Slide purpose: Break the news that there is now a specific offering for midsize businesses called Office 365 Midsize Business. Explain what Office 365 is and what Office 365 Midsize Business includes at a high level.How to present this slide:Keep in mind that most people, when they hear “Office 365”, only hear “Office” and think “Word, PowerPoint, Excel”. And when they hear “cloud”, they think “web apps” only, thinking this is only a browser-based version of Office, similar to Google Apps. So it’s important to take your time and labor on these 2 points specifically. Transition from previous slide by saying, “We understand what technology you need to help you manage the business challenges you are facing. We are excited that there is a new offering in the market that has been designed specifically for you….”Talk trackIntroducing Office 365 Midsize Business – this is an offering specifically designed for businesses with less than 250 usersFirst of all, Office 365 is a cloud-based productivity service hosted by MicrosoftIt gives you enterprise-quality productivity tools at an affordable priceBecause this is a cloud service, you always have access to the latest, most up-to-date technology…Including the latest version of the familiar Office applications (like Word, PowerPoint, Excel, that you currently run on your PC or laptop)…Connecting seamlessly with business-class email and calendar, with the ability to share documents, and set up online meetings with audio/video conferencing.(If you feel customers will know the product names, you can mention this) These are all services powered by our enterprise-grade solutions, Exchange Online for email, SharePoint Online for document sharing and business processes, Lync Online for IM, presence, and conferencing.All these services are built to work together seamlessly so you can easily start an IM or schedule an online meeting in Outlook or any Office applications.Plus all these services can be managed within a single web-based admin console so you can easily integrate with your existing Active Directory, add/delete users, and add security to your mobile devices, etc.All services are supported and backed by the same 99.9% uptime guarantee service level agreement.In contrast, some key business needs, such as Voice for PC to PC calling, Google Contacts, and Google Video, are not covered by the Google Apps for Business service level agreement (SLA). What’s unique about Office 365 is that:It works perfectly with the Office you know and use so your employeesdon’t have to learn a new tool or require additional training from youIt is designed to help you work seamlessly online or offline:Say you are working on a proposal and want to get feedback from your partners or customers. You can start working on it on your own computer, then save to the cloud and share it securely with partners or customers for feedback. They can then access the documents and work on them with you online instead of emailing different versions back and forth. If you go offline, say when on a plane, you can still access the documents and work on them offline (using SkyDrive Pro), and Office 365 will automatically sync the document back to the cloud as soon as you have connections again.These are all enterprise-class services – trusted by large corporations designed to give you the reliability and security you expect.Coca-Cola Enterprises (72,000 employees), Starbucks, Campbell Soup, Hyatt Hotels (106,000 employees), the Department of Veterans Affairs (600,000 employees), Lowes (>200,000 employees), Hallmark (9,500 employees), Japan Airlines (20,000 employees), and Burger King (3,500 users). We do not violate your privacy or confidentiality requirements by using scanning technologies to read your email for targeting advertising like Google does.Let’s drill down now on the specifics of Office 365 to help you understand why it’s the right technology for your business. The first area we talked about is “anywhere access”….
You get more new and advanced “Enterprise” functionality, and we continue to increase the granularity of admin (rather than take away) partner opptySharepoint actually starting to surpass it’s on-prem counterpartIntegrating with new assets – FAST, SKYPE, YAMMERThis is a good slide to explain what is included in Office 365 Midsize Businesses. You can consider printing this out as a leave-behind too.When you explain Office 365 to a small and midsizebusiness, it’s easiest to explain in four buckets. The first and foremost, and where most of the exciting investments are coming from for this release, is Office. This is the familiar rich Office client that your customers use and love, but now offered as a cloud service, so it’s always up to date. This Office “knows” you, meaning you now sign into Office so your latest documents and settings roam with you or follow you. Users can use this Office on multiple devices. And when you don’t have your laptop, you can now stream the full Office applications to any PC in minutes with Office on demand so you can work from anywhere. This Office, delivered as a service, is designed to work seamlessly with best of breed productivity services. Exchange Online for hosted business-class email, SharePoint Online for document sharing and sites management, and Lync Online for web conferencing and instant messaging. These are all enterprise-class services designed and optimized for SMB. There is a lot of features and capabilities packed into Office 365, so to start a conversation, Exchange Online is the best workload to lead with because everyone needs and understands email.
Richest experience across all form-factors, all input methods and across platformsBefore the click:Office 365 includes the latest version of all the familiar Office applications – including Word, PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook – for you to use on your PCs and Macs. After the Click:In addition, it also provides access to certain Office applications that are optimized for tablets and smartphones. For example, Outlook for Windows tablets is optimized for touch experience and makes it easier for users to interact, compose and manage their email on the go. Lync and OneNote for Windows Phones as well as iOS and Android operating system provide the rich experience on the mobile phones. For each Office 365 licenseduser,you can use Office on up to 5 PC or Mac, and 5 mobile devices.
Integrate the cloud into the creative environment to automate backup and ubiquitous access. <Distinguish Skydrive and SPro)There is no use for Office on all your devices if you can’t get to your documents.With Office 365, your documents are saved to the cloud by default so they are automatically backed up. You now have a “drive” in the cloud called SkyDrive Pro for documents that you are managing and working on but can also share with others (see screenshot, point to the SkyDrive Pro link at the top right bar)Because everything is saved to the cloud, when you sign into Office from any browser, you will always have the latest version of your documents follow you. See this list of your latest documents (point to the screenshot on the left). This also goes for settings like your personal dictionary and custom templates. When your documents are saved in the cloud, you can also sync (point to the sync button on the top right) these files to your laptop or mobile devices so you can still access and work on them when you are offline. It will automatically re-sync it back to the cloud when you have your connection back.
Distinguish the 2 Skydrives again!In addition to making it easy to share documents and emails with a pre-set team structure, you also want to do ad-hoc sharing and also sharing with external partners or customers.With SkyDrive Pro or any other document library within SharePoint Online, you can easily share documents from the preview pane. This preview pane helps ensure it is the right file you want to share.[Click]Or, you can also easily share documents from within each of the Office applications by clicking share.
The future of the phone call! Speak to limitations though. This is the “Wow!” moment when you demo to customers. Talk it up!The biggest challenge for remote workers is to hold meetings, especially productive meetings together. Lync Online in Office 365 has solved this problem by adding multiparty high-definition video conferencing where every participant can now interact with everybody else on the meeting in a more lively manner. Plus, with the ability to share your screen, may it be a specific document, presentation or your entire desktop, users can convey their point clearly to the audience of the meeting. [Click]The new Lync Online in Office 365 now also supports creating a shared OneNote meeting notes during the meeting. This means with one click, you create a OneNote that everyone in the call has access to and can start typing at the same time. Everyone can see and verify the list of action items as they are being discussed during the meeting so there are less chances for errors and ensure everyone is on the same page. Since it’s a shared OneNote, it also means the organizer of the meeting can delegate the responsibility of note-taking to someone else in the call if need be.
Explain “Business” Social and then speak to pervasive presence and the move from non-realtime to realtimecollab (flow)We are bringing social to the business world to help you stay connected and get things done the way you are already familiar with.[Click]Office 365 provides an integrated social experience to help users keep tabs on what everybody is working on or talking about via the newsfeed.[Click] You can follow people, documents, sites as well as tags to get updates in your newsfeed on all the things that are important to you.[Click] Also, you see the presence wherever you go within Office 365 to know who’s online and available. When you mouse over it, it pops up the same people card, giving you the full details about a person as well as their social feeds all from one location.
Office 365 simplifies most of the tasks required by IT admins by making them easily accessible via the simplified admin portal. IT administrators can get to workload management portals using the universal nav bar. Also the left navigation frame allows IT administrators to quickly get access to adding users, checking service settings or check on licensing. In addition, Office 365 now have integrated community support where IT Administrators can quickly search for any issues on the community right from within the portal.
Deploying Office in the past has always been a chore. Now you can deploy Office on desktops quickly and effortlessly by streaming the full featured Office desktop applications directly from Office 365. [Click] It’s so simple, users can do it themselves by simply clicking on “install”.This is a ground-breaking technology because rather than taking 30 min to download the .msi file (Microsoft Installer) and then another 20-30 min to install Office. With this click-to-run technology, Office is ready to use within moments (as quick as seconds with a fast Internet connection) of you clicking “install”.This Office stays on the machine so users can go offline once it’s installed. This is not to be confused with Office on demand that we talked about before for you to stream one Office application to any PC for you to edit documents wherever you are.
Not only is the new Office quick to install, it can also run side-by-side with older versions of Office. [Click] Here you have an example of a single machine running both Word 2013 and Word 2003.This is great for many reasons. It means you can deploy and standardize everyone in the company with the new Office but still allowing, say Finance, to open and use a budgeting Excel file with macros built in that they have been using for years. This will give them time to test the new Excel before completely moving off of Office 2003 – which is coming end of support by April 2014.
Business-ready toolsOffice 365 has the broadest definition of what productivity and collaboration means for businessYou get big business tools at affordable price, no compromisesOne stop shop for everything you need to be productive at work, no more cost and hassle of integrating point solutionsMicrosoft builds professional tools for businesses. This is the core of our business. We don’t think about this as a side business so we can useyour business data to sell advertising.Latest technologyBecause Office 365 is a cloud service you subscribe to, you’ll always have the latest version of the technologyOffice is the common language in business for years – you can now subscribe to Office and always get to use the latest versionLow upfront costsYou don’t need to upgrade any servers to use Office 365.You cut down on cost related to server maintenance when you no longer run your own Exchange Server. You just manage your Office 365 services from a web-based admin console.Office 365 also means low training costs because itis based on services that are already familiar to your usersPer-user licenseSimplified per-user rather than per-device licensing: Less time spent tracking licenses, more options for users.With each Office 365 user, you can Office on up to 5 PC or Mac, plus 5 mobile devices which include smartphones and tabletsYou get predictable monthly costs that are easier to budgetIf you have seasonal workers, you can easily add and delete users as you need them.
We introduced the new offering Office 365 Midsize Business earlier on in the presentation as the unique plan designed specifically for businesses under 250 users. To help you choose the right plan for your business, we have a comparison between three popular options: Office 365 Small Business Premium (SBP), Midsized Business (M), and Enterprise E3. There are some similarities across all three plans, for example all three plans include the full featured Office desktop applications. But let’s look at the differences here…First, at the bottom of this table, you can see the seat target for these plans, as well as the pricing (USD dollar shown). There are technical limitations on the number of seats you can add to SBP and M, but you should choose the right plan not only based on these, but also around topics like IT control, support, how to deploy Office, and whether you have advanced business and IT needs.Let’s start from the bottom.IT controlIT admin with Small Business Premium is simple and preconfigured so customers don’t have to do much to get up and running. Midsized Business and E3 customers want greater control and customization from the console, which is why we’ve built in more robust controls like Active Directory integration. The difference between M and E3 is more subtle, where in M you should expect to see more templates and how-to videos for the IT generalists, and in E3, full capability to configure all the services.SupportSupport is much the same. Basic support for Small Business Premium includes initial phone support as needed. Midsized Business includes unlimited telephone support during business hours, whereas E3 has 24/7 access. Of course, we have 24x7 phone support on all critical service issues. Our phone support exceeds our closest competitionon all of our plans. OfficeAs mentioned, all three plans include desktop Office applications licensed as a subscription, plus Office Web Apps. What’s different here is how you get to deploy Office. Office Deployment for Small Business Premium and Midsized Business is a “pull’ experience meaning the end user initiates the deployment and it streams Office directly from Office 365 servers. Push deployment in E3, means that Office may be used with software distribution and automation tools that enable IT admins to install it on behalf of end users.Advanced servicesWe’ve already touched on it, but only Midsized Business and E3 will work with Active Directory. This enables single sign-on for all your PCs and it integrates with your company’s identity system. Users created on-premises are available for license assignment in the cloud, and you will have one place to set up permissions. The biggest difference between M and E3 are advanced services like Excel and Visio Services for SharePoint integration, rights management (allows customers to send IRM mail from Exchange), voicemail, and compliance features like In-Place Hold and Data Loss Prevention. If you need these services, you will want to consider E3 regardless of your company size.
