Microsoft offers its plans in two series for its Enterprise customers. Enterprise customers are those whom user count is high in numbers i.e. more than 300 users. But it’s not essential that only Enterprise customers may acquire them. Any customer who’d like to meet their requirements that matches these plans may proceed for the purchase.

So, as the title of this article suggests, those two series of plans offered by MS are Microsoft Office 365 Enterprise and Microsoft 365 Enterprise. We may proceed to look into each one of it first to know exactly what offerings are we getting in these two.

What is MS Office 365?

It’s a cloud offering of MS which includes several services in it depending on the plan you opted for. The examples for the services included would be Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft Teams, Microsoft SharePoint etc.

It also comes with a typical set of Office apps i.e. Word, Excel, PowerPoint etc. which mostly get used all over the world on the daily basis. That totally depends whether the desktop apps are supported in your active plan or you may need to switch to next tier plan of Office 365.

What is Microsoft 365?

It’s also a cloud offering from Microsoft which basically includes all the services coming along the Office 365 but additionally it offers two other add on including Enterprise Mobility and Security (EMS) and the Windows 10 Enterprise license.

EMS is to basically add an extra coat of security for your organization’s data and access to it, increasing the productivity without compromising any bit of the security and emitting all the risks.

Windows 10 Enterprise license means that you don’t have to activate the Windows manually by using the product key, instead when your Microsoft 365 licensed user is logged in to the Windows, it’ll automatically be digitally licensed.
