Tales From The Trenches: How to Manage 15,000 Microsoft 365 Licenses in 80 Countries

We hear – firsthand – from our all-star Success Team about how CoreView combats the chaos for some of their top-tier customers. Let's dig in... 

How one law firm:

  • Gained oversight of their 15,000 Microsoft licenses 
  • Increased IT efficiency by 15% 

Eliminate Unnecessary Microsoft License Spend

Smart IT leaders want to make sure that each user receives the appropriate license, that the licenses that are used are with the appropriate team members, and have complete visibility into the associated costs.

Microsoft, sadly, doesn't offer very good visibility into license usage. After performing countless CoreView “Health Checks” for hundreds of enterprise companies, we discovered:

  • On average, 32% of licenses are unused or unassigned
  • Extra licenses are “sitting on the shelf” – but the company is still reserving new licenses instead of re-assigning
  • Attempts to allocate costs and provide accountability through chargebacks or showbacks are complicated or non-existent
  • Customers are paying anywhere from $5 to $50 million each year for Microsoft 365 licenses—meaning even a little waste adds up

With CoreView, IT departments can pull a comprehensive report within seconds. Time us. 

Curious to know how many of your Australian employees have mailboxes over 50 gb? 

What about how much the US office is spending on disabled accounts?

Oversight is Power

The bulk of correspondence, data creation, and data storage for your company happens inside of your Microsoft 365 tenant.
As a result, monitoring user behavior in Microsoft365 can assist a business in many different ways.

These kinds of data tracking can reveal:

  • communication gaps between particular departments
  • users with licenses they don't truly require
  • specific resources that are underutilized across your company

CoreSuite collects and enhances audit data across Microsoft 365 to give you the information at your fingertips:

  • Need to see audit logs from 6 months ago? No problem, CoreSuite stores audit logs for 1 year or more.
  • Want to create an alert based on specific audit data? Easy – just set up the rules and send an email alert or run a workflow.

Managing Microsoft 365 Licenses is Complex - CoreView Isn’t

The layer between IT managers and Microsoft 365 is CoreSuite. We give users access to a single admin interface, which unlocks a ton of value.

To begin, we organize and keep up-to-date every piece of siloed data from your M365 tenant. On-premises data can also be retrieved via our hybrid connector. Everything is now centralized.

All of Microsoft 365's admin centers are replaced by CoreSuite. This empowers IT teams to administer M365 with greater effectiveness, control, and security.
