New video for the Office 365 identity models

There are three identity models for Office 365:

  • Cloud identity
  • Synchronized identity
  • Federated identity

A new 3-minute video for the Understanding Office 365 identity and Azure Active Directory article explains the three models simply and helps you determine which model is most appropriate for your business.


If you have 3 minutes, please watch the video and let us know what you think:

  • Are there other technical topics that could use this kind of video treatment?
