What is Evergreen IT?
Evergreen IT is where software services are continually kept up-to-date by the software provider. Evergreen IT includes not just user-facing software (like Word), but the systems behind the scenes that keep everything running – all of which lives in the cloud.
What are the benefits of Evergreen cloud software?
Evergreen cloud IT means you are guaranteed to be on the very latest version of the software. This means you have access to the most secure version with the latest features, without having to pay extra – it’s all included in your ongoing software subscription.
What is an Evegreen IT approach?
An Evegreen IT approach is where you are aware of the benefits and pitfalls of Evegreen IT services, and plan appropriately. By working with a trusted partner like CompanyNet, you can have advance notice of what changes are coming, and ensure your business is ready to take full advantage of them.
Many businesses are moving to Evergreen Microsoft 365, transitioning their staff to Windows 10 and opening up access to the suite of products available in Office 365. With that transition complete, the platform becomes part of your core day-to-day operations. At that point, it’s vital that the right operational processes and roles are in place to manage Microsoft 365 on an ongoing basis.
Cloud platforms such as Microsoft 365 need a different kind of operating model compared with the traditional, on-premises services your team may be used to. This is because cloud vendors manage updates in a new way, with features and services being launched, updated and retired constantly. On the plus side, this means your software and underlying systems are always up to date. But, if not well-managed, the rapid cadence of these changes can have a serious impact on both the technical and the business resources in your organistaion.

Change is in the nature of Microsoft 365, so you should expect and prepare for a significant level of change as part of your operations.
