“Office 365 will allow employees to collaborate and achieve their work tasks regardless of the platform, product or device,” IAG chief information officer Nigel Underwood said in a statement. He added that creating a common IT platform for airlines across the group “will be more efficient and reduce our costs”. IAG said the Microsoft deal will allow the organisation to consolidate systems. “Office 365 and Yammer will enable us to switch off legacy email and related systems, including about 1,000 bespoke applications,” an IAG spokeswoman said.”

58,000 new users using Exchange, SharePoint, Lync and Yammer… allowing users to be more productive, and efficient while reducing costs at the same time? This statement holds true regardless of whether you are a small business owner, a sole proprietor, or a mega airline with 58,000 employees.

  1. Interesting that they chose SP..of course I am a bit bias and think it’s great but I wonder what the real reasons for choosing it were beyond what was stated?
