This is big news, especially for not-for-profits, healthcare, insurance and other sectors that were previously unable to use Microsoft office 365 due to privacy and data sovereignty regulations. We will now be able to work more closely with our non-profit clients to help them leverage Microsoft office 365 and other services that will offer cost savings, efficiency and reliability.
