The growth of mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets changed the world rapidly. Most notably business users store important information on their devices such as emails, certificates, pictures, corporate apps and applications, etc. Maintaining control over their applications across corporate datacenters and public cloud platforms has become a significant challenge. IAM helps organizations to reduce helpdesk costs with self-service and single-sign-on experiences.
EMS – Enterprise Mobility Suite was introduced in the end of 2014. There is no specific product for EMS, it’s a collection of services you can choose.
Currently EMS contains the following services:
– Cloud Identity + Access Management: gives users self-service capabilities and single sign-on for any corporate resource for easier identity management – for cloud-only and hybrid identities.
– Mobile Device + Application Management: mobile device management, such as MDM in Office 365 and Intune to manage and protect corporate data and apps on almost any device.
– Information Protection: information security management across on-premises environment and cloud applications while protecting corporate data inside and outside of the organization.
– Desktop Virtualization: a scalable platform to deliver corporate applications simply and cost effectively – everywhere.
We’re happy to announce our fifth free ‘Office 365 Pills’ conference in Nuremberg, Germany on 16th June this year. We’re looking forward to speak about some Office 365 and Exchange news.

Time after time, Microsoft decided to change their company presentation to “mobile first – cloud first”. There are currently many Office 365 features, which are reserved for cloud-only users, such as Delve (Office Graph), Groups, Sway, Yammer, etc. and there are no plans to make them for on-premise customers available. This depends, among other things, on the complex configuration and the customer needs; not all on-premise users will have Exchange, SharePoint, and Lync installed.
In this topic, I will discuss the possibility to connect an Exchange Hybrid deployment with Office 365 to use site mailboxes.
