Can't Decide: Office 365 Premium or Status Quo
Posted on 2016-11-24
I am IT for company of 50. 25 are in main office, 25 dispersed in 4 remote branch offices.
All files are on our SBS 2008 Server and accessed locally on LAN, remotely via Remote Desktop Connection to a Terminal Server.
Besides the usual Microsoft Offices Documents and Email, we have 10 engineers that use AutoCAD and other 3D Software (these files are big), also, we have Graphics Designers and they work with Adobe Photoshop (Also BIG BIG Files).
We are updating our Office 2007 to Office 2016. Like the Office 365 Cloud scenario for easy access but I see drawback with fact that A) much of our companies data is not Office Documents and B) It is more expensive than if were to purchase Office 2016 and use it for 10 years.
What would you do??? I "think" would still need in-house servers and MS User CAL's so not like we can put everything in the cloud and not need in-house server computer..
