Microsoft is ending support for Office 2013

To make sure enterprises make the most effective use of their Office 365 packages, Microsoft has announced it will no longer provide technical support or software and security updates for Office 2010 and Office 2013 from October 13, 2020. This means your Office 365 apps will work, but you may be exposed to security risks.

 

Office 2013 Client Connectivity to Office 365 Services

Microsoft will not take any active measures to block older Office clients, such as Office 2013 and Office 2010, from connecting to Office 365 services. However, legacy clients attempting to connect to a modern, always up- to- date cloud service may experience performance and reliability issues.

 

Modern Collaboration

Microsoft Teams can be used as a hub for teamwork within an enterprise. All team members communicate through conversations, meetings, and calls. Teams conversations offer a threaded, persistent, and contextual chat that keeps record of team activity, keeping all team members up to date.

How to organize remote work

When people ask us about remote work, we tell them our team and I make sure every our employee has the tools, resources, and solutions to be as productive, creative, and secure as possible—working from any location and on any device. Below, I’ve identified some of the top ways we are enabling remote work at IT Partner. I hope you find them useful.

 

Remote work: our expirience

As you might know IT Partner work as a distributed team. From 2014 (some of us even earlier) we have been working and collaborating remotely. It wasn’t simple shift. You should challenge yourself every day ‘cause you have Youtube, Facebook, Netflix and all this stuff around. Also, you may have kids and pets, probably. As Jimmy Kimmel said yesterday, “Did you know you can make coffee at home?”. And he even spelt his name on a cup correctly :)

Accessibility in Microsoft 365

According to a Cornell study, most people with disabilities choose not to disclose their disability to their employer. You can use the built-in, inclusive capabilities within Microsoft 365 to empower your team and foster an inclusive environment, without having to know the specific needs of your team members.

Compliance Manager

It is complicated to interpret compliance requirements and they can also be labor-intensive to implement. With new regulations and changes coming constantly, keeping up can be difficult and expensive.
