When managing your platform, some applications may be a higher risk of leaking data outside your organization and you just don't know it. There have been some very public scenarios of organization leaking data, or having breaches and stolen data. It's like a modern horror movie with the fear of what could happen to a company, or an an individual, if our data ends up in the wrong hands.
M365 - License Optimization Center
ENow Software's Microsoft License Optimization blog built by Microsoft MVPs for IT/Sys Admins.
My passions are Microsoft Office 365, organization change strategy and user experience. It’s been my core focus for 8+ years helping organizations plan for, implement, and adopt the technology. I have spent over 14 years combining my Psychology degree, Prince2/ITIL accreditation and Agile experience to drive project success. I focus on the Change Management Strategy across an Office 365 implementation and ongoing roadmap, establishing readiness and redesigned ways of working. At the center of all my work is the impact and experience of people, along with the bigger picture and value of Office 365 for an organization. My consulting roles have a major engagement element, whether leading the technical delivery, or consulting solely on change strategy and user experience, managing delivery and also leading key conversations and being a leader in those challenging times.
From the 1st of March this year, there will be price increases across all levels of Microsoft 365 licensing from Business Basic through to E5.
Businesses have been existing within the Microsoft 365 ecosystem for years on its ever-changing journey and ongoing transformation.
For many of these businesses, 2020 drove a need for rapid progress to enable business continuity during the pandemic. We saw potentially years of transformation in mere months, or even weeks. During this time, we certainly were not thinking 'is the cost of licensing worth it?'
The Microsoft ecosystem is a complex beast and requires detailed analysis and understanding for any business to establish their core suite of tools and licensing requirements. There are many applications for staff to use across their working day, along with the platform configuration, with a key decision being what to enable for staff.
