This is an updated version of a popular blogpost that I posted in January 2013. It turned out to be one of the most visited posts and it still is (This one). This time I have updated the feature comparison list to show what is included in the different Office 365 plans and subscription levels that are available. It is not easy to find the information when you are looking to buy just the right plan for your organization.
My primary goal with this post is to again make it just a little bit easier to find what feature is included in what plan, what functionality is avaiable in which plan and most importantly, where is SharePoint Online included? 😉

2   Yammer Enterprise is not a component of Office 365 Government, but may be acquired at no cost as a standalone offer for each user licensed for Office 365 Government Plan E1, E3 and E4. This offer is currently limited to customers which purchase Office 365 Government under Enterprise Agreement and Enterprise Subscription Agreements.
3   Azure RMS is not included, but can be purchased as a separate add-on service.
4    To learn more about which RMS features are included with Office 365 plans, see Comparison of Rights Management Services (RMS) Offerings

6    Office 365 Video is not available with the following plans: Office 365 Government E1, Office 365 Government E3, Office 365 Government E4

Changing or mixing plans
As the needs of your organization change, you may need to change your Office 365 plan. You can switch from your current Office 365 subscription to another Office 365 subscription:
– In the same service family: For example, you can move from Office 365 Business Essentials to Office 365 Business Premium, or from Office 365 Enterprise E1 to Office 365 Enterprise E3.
– From a standalone plan: For example, you can move from Exchange Online Plan 1 to Office 365 Enterprise E1.
– To a different service family: For example, you can move from Office 365 Business Essentials to Office 365 Enterprise E3.
For information about how to change subscriptions, including how to move from a trial to a paid subscription, see Switch to a different Office 365 plan or subscription.

You can combine Enterprise, Business and standalone plans (e.g. Exchange Online Plan 1) within a single Office 365 account. However, existing limitations on the number of seats per plan do not change. For example, you can have up to 300 seats per plan on both Office 365 Business Essentials and Office 365 Business Premium, but an unlimited number of users on Exchange Online Plan 1. Education and Government plans cannot be combined with Enterprise, Business or standalone plans.

Note:

1   To use folder sync, you must have Office 2013 (Standard or Professional edition) or an Office 365 subscription that includes Office applications. Office 365 Business Essentials, Office 365 Enterprise E1, Office 365 Education E1, and Office 365 Government E1 plans don’t include subscriptions to Office 2013. However, you can use folder sync if you have Office 2013 installed and subscribe to one of these plans.
2   Kiosk accounts have limited OneDrive for Business functionality. Kiosk customers can use the OneDrive for Business folder sync client application to sync team site document libraries with a shared computer and access documents offline. But kiosk accounts do not include a OneDrive for Business Personal Site, so they do not benefit from a OneDrive for Business personal library with 1 TB of online storage.
3    Azure Rights Management (RMS) is not included, but can be purchased as a separate add-in order to enable supported IRM features.
4   Because Kiosk users can’t be administrators, tenants with Kiosk users need at least one Enterprise user to access the admin center.
5   When you use eDiscovery features, the licensing requirement for a plan that permits that feature applies to all end users that are part of the eDiscovery action (Search, Hold, Export).
6   Authenticated SharePoint Online users can access private site collections with faceted navigation.

Office 365 News – Unannounced Microsoft change to SharePoint Online access


 Office365logo       SP2013logo

Microsoft recently made a change to the way users can access SharePoint Online, this may affect many thousands of customers without them knowing…

Licensex

It has been disclosed to me that Microsoft has implemented a change on all Office 365 tenants to the way an unlicensed user can access SharePoint Online services…in a bad way…

Previously, the behaviour was that if you did not give a user a the SharePoint license in Office 365, the user could not access SharePoint.
This is the expected behaviour and this is how most companies restricted access to SharePoint Before they were ready to offer the service to their organizations.
This is no more, or at least not the current behaviour…Microsft has ‘temporarily’ made a change that allows ALL users, with a license or not to have access to all SharePoint Services.
The imidiate affect may be that your organization sleeps safely in the belief that SHarePoint may not be accessed, except by you in IT or by a limited number of individuals, meanwhile, the users go crazy and start using SharePoint in ways you never intended…

Well, this is something I don’t like, I would like this change to be limited to the ones who specifically asked for it, and if you needed it, you could request it, not the other way around.

Note 1: If you find that you do not want this behaviour, you want access only to your licensed users. Open a Service Request with Microsoft and ask them to change it back, they will help you then.

Note 2: The change does not affect OneDrive for Business, unprovisioned users do not get access to their ODfB without the SharePoint license.

The reason given by Microsoft representatives is this: Microsoft recognizes assigning licenses to users that are synced to the O365 services is cumbersome for larger tenants, to alleviate this pain point; a temporary change has been released to SharePoint Online that will allow users to access SharePoint Online even without license.’

Enterprise Edition of SharePoint Server 2013 – what’s in it?


Why get the Enterprise edition of SharePoint Server 2013?

That is a question you should ask yourself at the beginning of every new SharePoint Project where you are planning to set up a new farm. Depending on what features and functionality you are planning to use, the editions will offer you a different solution.
Obviously, the Enterprise edition has a bigger prisetag, but if so only one of the features is what you or your customer is looking for, you could end up saving money by using a built in feature instead of developing your own.
Say that you only need one of the Enterprise features and you end up getting the Enterprise license, you get the functionality you was looking for, but in addition, you will have all the other Enterprise features available for use at a later time. The odds tell us that the farm will evolve and new functionality will be asked for.

Note: The complete list of all features in all editions of SHarePoint 2013 can be found here: SharePoint 2013 feature comparison chart all editions

The top 10 lost of features that make customers buy Enterprise edition, at least from my experience (feedback on this is welcomed and will be considered for implementation)

1 InfoPath Forms Services
2 Excel Services
3 PowerPivot
4 PerformancePoint Services
5 Power View
6 ScoreCards and DashBoards
7 Visio Services
8 Content Search Web Part
9 Analytics Plattform
10 Host Named Site Collections

Enough with the planning and strategy/sales/aquisitions dravel…lets dive into the features!

The ‘shortlist’ of ENT features looks like this, these are the features that you DO NOT get unless you have the Enterprise edition:
