As we’ve spoken about before, cloud tools play a crucial role in business continuity. Remote work continues to change the way that businesses operate. No company can afford the cost of interrupted operations caused by remote teams, on-premise servers and other issues that can affect the day-to-day running of the business. Cloud tools help to ensure accessibility, increasing productivity and reducing costs. 

How Cloud Tools Enhance Business Continuity

Which cloud tools offer the most value in terms of increased business continuity? Some of the most essential tools from Microsoft 365 include the following:


Microsoft Teams has proven itself to be a major contender to the video conferencing throne. Although many other apps offer virtual meeting features, Teams offers far more, allowing departments, project teams, senior executives, and various other team members within your organisation to stay collected, from any device and any location. Features such as voice calling, chat, real-time file sharing, access controls, and advanced encryption add even more value.


OneDrive integrates within Microsoft 365’s suite of apps, including Teams. This cloud storage solution enables files and folders to be easily managed on the cloud, with permission-based access, security features, organisation, and additional features. As data is not stored on-premise, there is no need for legacy servers, reducing costs significantly.


Microsoft Office remains the most used document, spreadsheet and presentation suite of all time. Unlike the desktop versions, the cloud versions enable documents to be easily accessed, edited, added, removed, and managed in real-time. Permissions can be set by creators and files can be shared through various Microsoft apps, including Teams and OneDrive.
