For Hamburg Port Authority, communication and access to information among its 1,900 employees is key to maintaining operations across port territory. To assist in ease of communication, HPA employed Office 365 to bring together cloud-based versions of Microsoft Exchange Online, Microsoft SharePoint Online, and Microsoft Lync Online as a connected solution with the Microsoft Office client applications in Microsoft Office 365 ProPlus.
“With our staging solution and Click-to-Run in Office 365 ProPlus, we reduced the IT labor hours to test, install, and update Office versions by 75 percent,” says Stefan van Eijden, IT Infrastructure Manager at HPA. “We now have one package to test and everything else works automatically.
