Australian businesses have been told they will need to make their own arrangements if they want to use Microsoft’s new Cloud-delivered office software service, Office 365, but keep their data onshore.

Mr Trimboli, director of Microsoft Australia’s Information Worker Business Group, said that Microsoft was working with the Australian Government Information Management Office and the privacy commissioner regarding jurisdictional issues for data storage behind Office 365.

In the interim, companies would need to carry out private risk assessments for using the offshore or locally hosted versions of the Cloud service.
