On to the cloud

If you look at the latest numbers from Microsoft, they are now touting that they sell more Office 365 subscriptions than normal Office licenses.  So the new normal is 365.  But I am finding that it really depends on how and where you purchase your 365 licenses as to the options you have for adding services later on.

Purchase Office 365/email from Godaddy and I’m having a heck of a time purchasing a Windows E5 license to add to the mix.  Because godaddy puts in their own authentication piece, it won’t let me add the E5 license to my godaddy office 365 mix.

So if you don’t plan to add any additional things like Advanced threat protection, Windows enterprise licenses and what not, godaddy’s site may work for you.  If you think you might add more cloud pieces later on, a “wrapper” site like godaddy may not work for you.
