Value of Adding a domain to Office 365 (way more than you might think)

Adding a domain name to your Office 365 is a key part to making your People Centric Enterprise work.  Its pretty simple to do, but it will give your firm a unified email domain while still working with Office in the Cloud.  No more having to either maintain a an on-site Exchange Server or have to give people a gmail or hotmail address for your business.

Its technically easy to do, as the video shows, but its worth thinking about how this all fits in the new People Centric Enterprise.

Your domain name is more than just a company name, it should be a brand, a personality and identity that reflects something about what you want to tell the world.  By being able to assign all your users names with your domain, the same domain as your web page, you create a Cloud based identity.  Users can see that your web page, your Office 365 and your email and Lync are all part of a single surface that they can contact from any device anywhere.

Having a single domain that for the web site and the internal messaging and collaboration builds a sense of unified working, where the people are not being made to fit in to boxes.  Rather your domain becomes a large tent where your workers, your partners and your customers can find ways to communicate, learn and share around your business.

  1. With a name like Hooker,
    you oughta follow me, bro.
    I sooo wish you could have
    the kinda accident I had [NDE]
    THEN! you'd know our lifetime
    is only a litmus test to see
    which direction we'll go at
    our Final Judgement. STILL...
    some shall go the opposite Way.

    Yes, earthling, Im an NDE
    so I actually know God exists:
    He rewards those who HONOR n RESPECT
    Him and strive to follow His Laws;
    for those who wanna know what
    Seventh-Heaven holds for your
    indelible, magnificent soul whom
    God has so carefully crafted
    (and if you're not too concerned
    with WWIII and N. Korea,
    you better follow us):

    Find-out what RCIA means and join.
    God bless your indelible soul.

    PS denying Hell will not prevent
    U.S. from falling INTO Hellfire:

    Jesus is the Just Judge;
    He only 'reads' what OUR past,
    mortal lifetime consisted of.
    so... I'd strongly urge you to read
    'Lui et moi', too, by Gabrielle Bossis
    (a French writer, translated, into
    crystal-clear-100,000W-GE-prose -
    a must have for anyone who's gotta
    grow-UP in our predestined
    relationship determined by YOU).
