Office 365 in 2016 – More Stability? #office365

Michael Sampson - Currents

At least, I hope that they do because it’s really hard for tenant administrators and others to cope with a cadence like the 450-odd changes Microsoft said they made during the year to August 2015. I think we see a different dynamic with Office 365 though, at the other end of the continuum: the constant addition or refinement of capabilities can make a system “unstable” in the eyes of users and administrators alike.

Ken Carroll

There were ‘administrators’ in gray suits (as in Masters in Business Administration) who spent their time on paperwork and what we would now identify as management.
