New infographic: Periodic Table of Office 365

Deleted
Not applicable

I consider myself a SharePoint geek, but I play more and more in the larger Office 365 (O365) sphere these days. In doing so, I’ve noticed that O365 as a concept is difficult to explain… both to IT folks and the everyday workers who are expected to use it.

So I put together a new infographic that (hopefully) provides a quick intro to O365, its apps, and how they're all related. Good for both the IT crowd and lines of business. Check out my Periodic Table of Office 365 below.

 

Update (Dec 2017): The original infographic has been upgraded to being a fully dynamic, web-based tool complete with articles on many of the apps, more translations (7 languages as of today!), and more. It's embeddable too, which is what you see below. Embed it in your intranet or website today!

Hey Matt,

You do such a great job don't you think you should do an infographic and blog about external/guest/anonymously access for each app.  I am just trying to get my head clear with Yammer and adding an external member to a conversation vs creating an external group vs creating an external network vs inviting guests into your home network.  Really external access can be the make or break of using an app and O365 groups complicates the whole thing.

At some point maybe. Lots to cover there, though. I did cover external sharing in SharePoint Online with these infographics.

Matt,

Thanks for the link to the SP external sharing infograohic.  O365 connected SharePoint sites have added a whole new layer to externals (especially those being made from Yammer).  I am sure I will see you posts when and if you ever have time to tackle this one.

Thanks,

Google images was my starting point for all of them. Have to be careful, too. Sometimes Microsoft changes them (and old ones are still prominent results) and sometimes they're, like, fan-created versions of them, using the wrong fonts and even yucky versions of the icons.

Excellent work - makes explaining the interaction to projects much easier

I found the icons are actually (in a) webfont. Which can be downloaded from http://o365icons.cloudapp.net/

If you install the .ttf as a font, you can use it in PowerPoint (as a symbol). Visio unfortunately doesn't work well, showing question marks instead of the glyphs. Did some conversion back to a vector with Inkscape and then pasted into Visio.

Wow! That is stunning... You are a big inspiration.

No Exchange Online? Outlook is not Exchange.

Exchange does not show up on the App Launcher, and is hidden from the typical users. It is only visible to Admins

Ah, ok missed the key requirement. Thanks!

And Exchange isn't an app. Exchange runs in the background. This graphic is meant for everyday users. If you're talking Exchange with everyday users, you've probably had a bad day. :)

Great work Matt !! I hope if you do not mind, I created a light version of your periodic table in PowerPoint format, with the ability for anyone to remove certain blocks or modify the text inside others.
