Hi

My client just bought the midsized office365 plan. What are the advantages with using the AD with office365?

I was told once activated it is difficult to turn off.

Please advise..

Thx!

Chris

It will reduce the administrative effort, you will be able to manage both the AD and Office 365 accounts from your on-prem servers. In addition, it will allow you to use features like password sync or singe sign on, which will greatly improve the end user experience. You can learn more about them here: http://blogs.office.com/2013/07/26/password-hash-sync-simplifies-user-management-for-office-365/

Turning it off is a simple matter of pressing a button, what you were told was valid years ago :)
