Published Mar 02 2018 06:43 PM 43.6K Views

Last year, at Inspire, we unveiled Microsoft 365, bringing together Office 365, Windows 10 and Enterprise Mobility + Security, to deliver a complete, intelligent and secure solution for the modern workplace. In October Microsoft 365 Business reached general availability, representing an integrated solution designed to simplify IT for small and medium-sized businesses.


We know that our customers, from small businesses to large enterprises, rely on the admin center for a broad set of activities. From an administration perspective, our vision for Microsoft 365 is to help simplify IT by unifying management across users, devices, apps and services. Today marks an important step in that vision as we are rolling out a new admin experience for Microsoft 365 enterprise customers. This will be a single place for admins to get started with Microsoft 365 and discover the breadth of management capabilities and experiences available to them.


Integrated into this admin center is both the new Microsoft 365 Security & Compliance Center, dedicated to providing security and compliance specialists with integrated management capabilities across Office 365, Windows, and EMS, as well as Microsoft 365 Device Management, dedicated to providing integrated device management capabilities across Intune, Office, and Windows. The Security and Compliance Center will be available shortly, with Device Management to follow afterwards. Please look forward to additional details.

Over the coming months we will continue investing in more integrated, streamlined administration experiences across Microsoft 365 to help organizations become more productive and secure while optimizing their IT resources. We will also continue to improve the admin’s user experience, so admins can complete their tasks faster and easier and get more done with their day.


For Microsoft 365 customers, once this is rolled out to your tenant, you will automatically have the new admin experience. You can login as you usually do, or navigate to to try out the new admin experience.

@E Twan Crawford- Great question. The admin tools for Office 365 are common across whatever platform your end users are using, so IT will be able to manage and monitor all users with the same set of tools. End users benefit because they stay more current on the latest versions of Office, with the latest features and capabilities. Everyone benefits when company data is more secure across devices.
