Enabling secure ways to share and collaborate on content with people inside and outside your organization is critical to improving teamwork and productivity. According to Gartner, “By 2020, 80 percent of large and midsize organizations in mature regions will have deployed one or more content collaboration platform (CCP) products to implement a content productivity and collaboration strategy.” But, if it’s not familiar and easy to use, user adoption is limited. That’s why Microsoft OneDrive allows you to work securely from any device on any platform from your desktop, from the web or from our mobile app, and is designed to work with the productivity and collaboration tools your employees use every day.

What do our customers think? With over 85 percent of the Fortune 500 companies having OneDrive and SharePoint across 250,000 organizations worldwide, we are delivering on our vision of a more connected workplace. In fact, usage of OneDrive for Business has more than doubled in the last year alone.
