At this year’s Inspire Conference in Washington D.C. (formerly known as the World Wide Partner Conference) Microsoft announced the release of an all-embracing Cloud and on-prem package which called Microsoft 365 or M365.
Just when you thought that all you had to do was understand the difference between Office 365 E3 and E5, you now have two additional layers of complexity. Microsoft 365 is designed to be a comprehensive Cloud client offering, as well a comprehensive on-prem offering, including everything that was previously part of an Enterprise Platform Desktop (Enterprise CAL, Office Professional Plus, Windows Enterprise) and is now their all-in-one Cloud bundle.
What’s the difference between Office 365 and Microsoft 365?
There are two main differences: Enterprise Mobility + Security and Windows Enterprise
And there are two main versions of Microsoft 365, each built on the E3 or E5 version of their component bundles:
M365 E3 = Office 365 E3 + EMS E3 + Windows Enterprise E3
M365 E5 = Office 365 E5 + EMS E5 + Windows Enterprise E5
