I wanted to compare exactly which features are available for these Office 365 plans:
- Office 365 Business Premium
- Office 365 Enterprise E1
- Office 365 Enterprise E3
The Office 365 plan comparison page did not give me enough detail. So I checked out the latest Office 365 service comparison page on TechNet (updated 1/28/2015 at the time of this post). This page lets you filter by plans. But it is way too much information for me to grasp at a glance, so I downloaded the Excel workbook and filtered more.
I filtered to see which features are available in the E3 plan, but not in the Business Premium plan (and may or may not be in the E1 plan). The result is in the table below.
For cells that say "See footnote", check out the corresponding footnotes on the SharePoint Online Service Description page on TechNet.
One important feature that is apparently only available in Enterprise plans is the ability to manage SharePoint sites through a SharePoint Admin Center (via the Web) and the SharePoint Online Management Shell (via PowerShell). This is not reflected here.

It's hard to fathom why people don't get that 12345, 123456, and other similarly stupid passwords make their own information and your organization's much less secure. But many people don't get it.
Dark Helmet from SPACEBALLS warned you a long time ago: "12345? That's the stupidest combination I've ever heard in my life! That's the kind of thing an idiot would have on his luggage!"
I made the above demotivational poster in honor of this post from InformationWeek:
Password Fail: Are Your Workers Using 123456?
Do better with passwords!

The AIIM Resource Centers offer lots of tutorials, webinars, publications, perspectives and more on SharePoint and a host of Information Management topics. Professional Members of AIIM can take advantage of these resources for free and get industry research, resource kits, training discounts, and more.
View this presentation as a course with audio and a full transcript in the AIIM SharePoint Resource Center. I have contributed more content there, including a webinar on Records Management in SharePoint 2013.
