Want to use MS Exchange without burning your company’s pocket? Try Microsoft Online

January 23rd, 2014 by Jabez Gan [MVP]

Microsoft Online Services launched in Malaysia for quite a while. This means that Malaysia companies can finally use Exchange Online, Sharepoint Online, Live Meeting and Office Communicator hosted on Microsoft’s data center.

Before we talk further, it’s always about the cost which entices the readers/bosses. Let me do a quick $$ breakdown:

(Sorry – the following will be in Ringgit Malaysia.)

SME (50 users)

– Decent System Administrator: RM3000 (monthly), or RM36,000 (yearly)
– Server hardware (with server redundancy, with license for 50 users): Rm15,000 (one time)
Total: RM51,000

For Microsoft Online Services (with Exchange, OCS, Live Meeting and Sharepoint)

– Rm33/user/month x 50 users x 12 months = Total: RM19,800

As you can see, Microsoft Online is a cheaper alternative to maintain your own IT infrastructure.

This is just a rough estimation.

What do you think?
