What Is The Microsoft Modern Workplace?

The Microsoft Modern Workplace and Office 365 is a more holistic cloud service that is made up of a range of cloud apps that improve project management, employee engagement and create a truly modern workspace. You can see which cloud apps make up the Microsoft Modern Workplace, below. 

The goal of the Modern Workplace is to align people, process and technology to improve the way a business operates on a daily basis. Picture a world where your workforce is empowered to use Office 365 and Modern Workplace in a way that suits them. Think about the benefits to them, the work they produce and the increased employee productivity for your business when they feel empowered to create their own ways of working. In addition, the implementation of a Microsoft Modern Workplace will make you a far more attractive company to work for if you can offer things like flexi-time, remote working and the ability to access things on mobile devices. 

When it comes to hiring, you’re able to cast your recruiting net far and wide because you know you’ve got the IT architecture in place to facilitate a truly modern workspace. One that can handle people being in different time zones, operating on multiple devices and the cybersecurity issues that come with it.

Speaking of cybersecurity, the reluctance to implement these cloud-based products is down to misconceptions about cyber threat protection and security management. However, more than 60% of cybersecurity experts believe that the risk of a security breach is the same, or lower, on public cloud-based environments compared to traditional on-premise sites.

So, if security is your biggest issue then have no fear, cloud-based technology like this is just as, if not more, secure and shouldn’t stop you from onboarding more immersive technology and revolutionising your ways of working. In fact, Gartner named Microsoft Security a leader in its five Magic Quadrants which should give you even more confidence in this technology. In addition, our team here at Everything Tech will install everything to the highest possible standard and ensure it is secure and everyone is trained.

What Are The Microsoft Modern Workplace Products?

The Microsoft Modern Workplace Solutions comprises several different apps all framed within a cloud infrastructure. What this means is that all these apps and your business’ associated accounts can be accessed on any device/operating system that has an internet connection.


The Reasons To Adopt The Microsoft Modern Workplace

You might be wondering why you and your business even need this radical level of digital transformation. After all, things might be working just fine as they are. But, what if you could take your ways of working to the next level? What if you could truly empower employees, enjoy a more modern management style and access the things that matter through multiple devices? This is what the productivity applications housed in Modern Workplace can do for you.

A truly modern workplace combines physical and digital space to meet the needs of your business and its employees. Adopting this strategy eliminates problems like:

Data in silos

The most frustrating thing in the world is not being able to access relevant documents, create reports or view analytics. And, because data is kept in its own compartments, team members have limited visibility and are unable to access a single source of truth.

Constrained to certain devices

Older systems, what we call legacy systems, can only really be accessed on fixed devices such as computers in an office, due to security reasons. This lack of flexibility means work only gets done at set times which creates rigid business practices.

A frustrated employment base

Outdated working practices create disgruntled team members. People are looking for greater flexibility and expect work to fit around their life. Having legacy systems which are rigid, slow and don’t allow people to do their job in a way that suits them, ruins the user experience and can cause employees to look elsewhere for employment.

Poor communication

Messages, relevant documents and other information is being shared on old, outdated channels which lead to misunderstandings, a lack of visibility and control. Outdated communication tools, which can’t be accessed on multiple devices in a flexible way, creates bottlenecks in the work process.

Clunky processes

Legacy systems using two or more systems to complete a task increases the margin of error and leads to low-level tasks being completed manually, which wastes time.

The Benefits Of Using Microsoft Modern Workplace


Using Microsoft Power Automate within Office 365 allows you to implement Digital and Robotic Process Automation (RPA). Automation increases productivity and the time that employees have to focus on other important tasks. With built-in artificial intelligence (AI) capabilities, you can also integrate lots of other applications like Google Analytics, Twitter and MailChimp.


The security stack within 365 allows you to defend against a range of advanced threats and attacks, like malware and phishing. You can also get advanced threat protection by using Azure Active DirectoryMicrosoft Intune and Windows Information Protection

Better communication and collaboration

Within Microsoft Modern Workplace, you’ll have access to several applications that facilitate collaboration and effective communication. These applications enable teams to work together, with ease, regardless of where they are. This makes Microsoft Modern Workplace great for a mobile workforce.

Get up and running quickly

There’s no hardware to install, meaning that you can get your Microsoft Modern Workplace fully installed and functioning in no time at all, especially with our assistance. This means that there’s minimal disruption to your business operations.
