Here we take a look at the benefits of Microsoft Exchange 2013 and offer our expert advice on how to get the most out of the technology.

Delivering a number of new features and improving the existing technology, Exchange 2013 is the perfect asset for businesses of all sizes.

After a lengthy development process, Microsoft said their main goal was to produce technology which “supports people and businesses as their work habits evolve from a communication focus to a collaboration process.”

Designed to be used either on-premises or as a hosted service, Exchange 2013 offers functionality to support multigenerational workforces. Outlook in particular has a new streamlined look with plenty of tools to make day-to-day tasks quicker and easier. The programmes also support touch devices, helping business workers stay connected with clients on the go and appealing to companies who incorporate BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies.

Unlike older versions of Exchange, there is now integration with SharePoint 2013 and Lync 2013, which offer plenty of features to make tasks like collaboration using site mail boxes possible. Searching for archived emails and documents quickly is now vital in many organisations; SharePoint and Lync provide e-Discovery functionality so you can easily preserve important data across inboxes. Companies can also use the new built-in DLP (Data Loss Prevention) to keep track of and protect sensitive data, ensuring colleagues are aware of policy violations before emails are sent.
