Why not take advantage of the free trials available to you! You can choose the smaller home and small business packages or if you wish you can delve into the enterprise packages with all the bells and whistles.
Signing up takes a very short amount of time – simply go to the following link or if you are a business and looking for a trial use this (Awaiting link details) (will take you to the Comms Group UK Ltd Office 365 partner link which will allow us to assist you in your trial or answer and questions you may have).
Once you have signed up it will automatically log you onto your Office 365 trial where you will be met with your services being provisioned!
Once provisioned, you are ready to go! Download the latest version of Office, look into what Yammer can do for your business, choose from a number of setup options to fully provision and manage your cloud environment ready for your cloud/on-prem data.
Although the portal can look quite clean and basic, there are plenty of advanced options to work with, it is wise to plan any moves effectively as you will need some ‘infrastructure’ with regards to SSL certificates to properly manage a cloud/on-prem/hybrid cloud environment.
It’s a trial after all so go nuts, make stuff happen, see what settings do, best in a trial then on a live environment right?
The other thing to do would be to look at the ‘exam blueprints’ to see what deploying and administering entails so that you can look into those areas in more detail.
Free trials are a great way of working with the product, Microsoft have given us the tools, use them! 🙂
