Managing Microsoft 365 Licenses is Complex

Smart IT leaders like you want to ensure that they’re buying the right license for each user, that licenses are being used, and that the right team members have perfect visibility into the costs involved.

Unfortunately, Microsoft doesn’t provide good visibility into license usage. After running hundreds of health checks for enterprise companies, we found:

  • 10-20% of licenses are unused or unassigned with more clearly over-assigned.
  • 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 $5to $50 million each year for Microsoft 365 licenses—making even a little waste add up!

What could you do with an additional $5 to $50 million extra in your IT budget? Read the full Microsoft license benchmarking report here.
