Video thumbnail for the Tales From The Trenches: Transitioning From Office 365 to Microsoft 365

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...

Hear how one company was able to transition from O365 to M365 seamlessly.

Quick question for you. What do you do when you have the majority of users transitioning from an O365 to an M365 license? Not all of them. Some will keep the O365, which is typically the case. 

In fact, a state government had this exact issue for 80,000 users and CoreView is there to assist.

Story Time: How This Government Institution Transitioned From O365 to M365 Licenses

Using the CoreView portal, they retrieved a list of all their users, applied filters on a handful of attributes, got that list down to just the folks that need to transition, from there, they saved the report and then for quality control purposes, they performed these license swaps from an O to an M365 and batches of a thousand at a time.

And instead of an army of help desk personnel, they delegated that task to just a few people, and it was handled in a matter of days. That is the true power of CoreView's overall reporting, custom reporting, saved reporting, and our management actions all at the same time. 

And by the way, the folks that made the license swaps, technically speaking because of CoreViews's permissions or perfect permissions, they don't even need access to the admin centers. They only need access to CoreView, they can analyze the data they need to analyze, they can cross reference it between Exchange Team, SharePoint, etc.

Whatever that criteria was for folks that need to move, they can filter it out and they can filter it out from one place and perform the change actions from the same place.

Assigning Microsoft Admin Permissions with Ease 

What if you could slice and dice a single M365 tenant in almost unlimited ways, empowering local IT specialists or admins to add, manage and support their own users while maintaining control and ensuring compliance?

In the native Microsoft tenant, admins are assigned roles by role-based access controls

Although this system may seem like the best fit. It leaves room for admins to either be under of overprivileged allowing for security threats to sneak in. 

With CoreView Virtual Tenants, you can segment your tenant by almost any criteria – from agencies to departments or teams, or even by role or other criteria. Want to put all users with area code 352 into a separate group? With Virtual Tenants you can, and any new users who fit the criteria will be automatically included. 

Then, you can assign incredibly granular, specialized “perfect permissions” for each Virtual Tenant to the proper admins. Want to allow a marketing operations person to add new users and assign licenses, but only within his or her department? No problem. Want to enable only managers to create new teams in Microsoft Teams? Virtual Tenants combined with granular role-based access controls create unlimited combinations to support your specific needs.

What Would Happen If You Got It All Under Control? 

With CoreView, you can delegate administration while maintaining full oversight of your environment, and layer in automation that helps your team move at full speed. 

And all those departments or regions you support? Instead of supporting everyone in a single tenant, handling hundreds of requests a day and struggling to keep up, you’ve granted department admins the ability to address requests themselves. This means offloading most requests to local admins, so central IT can focus on the more complex or higher-level issues. And freeing up time to do the more strategic tasks, like monitoring compliance with internal policies and optimizing license usage, supported by readily available reporting and automation to alert you if something unusual occurs. 

This is the power of getting it all under control with CoreView. Request your demo today.
