It's All About the Cloud
As cloud-computing is becoming more and more common, companies of all sizes are seeing the benefits and jumping on board.  The ability to collaborate and communicate on the go is one of the most alluring features as well as the availability of data and the need for less hardware investments.  With the cloud trend came a new idea of "Bring your own device" or BYOD.  Now employees expect to be able to use their personal devices for work-related business without missing a beat. In this newsletter, we have articles that discuss these topics and more. It is our goal to provide you with insights and information to help further your knowledge of cloud-based solutions.  We also have a mandatory update from Microsoft that all current Office 365 customers need to know about, so be sure to check it out!

Upgrade to Office 365 Mail:
Mandatory update to improve performance and reliability
All current Office 365 users should have received communications from Microsoft about the update to MX records in Office 365. Each custom domain will be required to have a unique Mail Exchange (MX) record value instead of the current generic value for the "points to address." All generic MX records will be deprecated on January 1, 2013.  If you are an Office 365 user and did not receive this notice from Microsoft or have further questions, please let us know


Windows Intune:
