Why do I need Office Professional Plus 2010?

by Arman Obosyan 16. December 2011 08:29

Часто встречается ситуация когда организации при внедрении (или лицензировании) продукта не до конца вникают в функциональность которая им необходим, как один из распространённых примеров это когда компании после развертывания в организации Office Standard 2010 обнаруживают не достающие возможности, которые присутствует в Office Professional Plus 2010, так вот, далее речь пойдет о всеми нами любимом Outlook.

Речь идет о Managed Folders, Retention Policy и Online Archive (с Exchange 2010) для которых необходимо наличие Office Professional Plus 2010, пояснения;

Если вам необходимо чтобы пользователи имели возможность использовать Managed Folders и Retention Policy или (и) пользователи могли просматривать Online Archive в пользовательском интерфейсе Outlook 2010 им необходим Office Professional Plus 2010.

Добавлю что, данные опции визуально даже не будут отображаться в Outlook Standard 2010, соответственно и нет функции Policy, например, скрины ниже

Отсутствует Policy

Office Professional 2010 PolicyOffice Standard 2010 NO Policy

В настройках папки также отсутствует Policy

Office Professional 2010 PolicyOffice Standard 2010 NO Policy

Online архив на стороне сервера, возможность хранения электронной почты и управление квотой архива, также отсутствует в Office Standard 2010

Office Professional 2010Office Standard 2010 NO Online Archive

Кроме того, следующие возможности также отсутствует в Office Standard 2010, и требуют наличия Office Professional 2010

  • Создать IRM-защищенный документ или сообщение электронной почты.
  • Предоставить доступ или разрешение на редактирования.
  • Применять шаблоны политик Protected Content сообщение электронной почты.
  • Применять политики к сообщениям электронной почты перед отправкой.
  • Работа с Outlook Social Connector, просматривать расписания встреч и SharePoint MySite деятельности (новые сообщения, документы, обновления статуса) через Social Connector
  • Интеграция с InfoPath 2010 полная работа InfoPath формами в Outlook 2010, заполнил и отправил как сообщение.
  • Инициировать IM/Voice c офисных приложений за счет интеграции с OCS.

------------

Для полного понимания, смотрим документ с ПОЛНЫМ сравнением Office 2010 Suite Version Comparison Guide” (Настоятельно рекомендую всем)

Outlook

В дополнении смотрим License requirements for Personal Archive and retention policies

И на последок, также нужно учитывать что, для выше перечислиных возможностей в контексте правильного лицензирования вам понадобятся Exchange Enterprise CAL (клиентские лицензии), и конечно же если вы планируете использовать Information Rights Management (IRM), Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS) то и для него нужны клиенски лецензии и в свою очередь почти всегда и везде нужны Windows Server CAL. Для удобства всегда выберайте или Core CAL Suite или Enterprise CAL Suite, но это уже другая история которая выходит за рамки данного поста.

На этом пока все.
