Facebook migrates to Office 365 for email and calendar access for its 13,000 employees
Facebook has inked a deal with Microsoft to roll out Office 365 web-based email and calendar services to its 13,000 employees. Internally, employees rely on the social network's Facebook at Work service to collaborate, but it does not have an email (or calendar) component. Facebook will also leverage Office's Delve feature to easily find relevant information within documents.
From The Wall Street Journal:
In explaining why Facebook made this move, Chief Information Office Tim Campos cited security and platform flexibility in a guest post on Microsoft's Office 365 blog (opens in new tab):
Interested in Office 365? You can get started with for as low as $6.99 a month (or $69.99 yearly), which gives you access to Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Outlook, Publisher, Access, and 1TB of OneDrive cloud storage.
