Gartner’s report indicates that at least one in every five organizations currently uses a Microsoft Office 365 service. Microsoft 365 has grown to be the most widely used cloud service by user count.
To thrive in today’s advanced and highly-competitive business environment, it’s important for organizations to continue to support cloud-based services committedly.
Furthermore, there are a number of specifics that we should pay attention to, and one of those is license optimization. Most IT departments need to dedicate more resources and time to understand their organization's dynamic internal licensing needs.
Any organization that wants to thrive today can’t afford to turn a blind eye to license management – it’s non-negotiable.
Enterprises with negligent license management systems often pay for too many licenses, struggle with application adoption due to a misalignment between employee needs and purchased licenses, and fail to reassign licenses after an employee has left the company or changed roles.
Businesses also routinely miss out on huge opportunities to save money on their enterprise and commercial deployment needs.
Getting the hang of the scope of Microsoft 365 modules is one of the more difficult aspects of license optimization. With 365, there’s an immense collection of license types, features, accessibility ranges, and products that are suitable for the business size, irrespective of the size.
Thankfully, CoreView can care for every license optimization need and much more. Here’s how.
CoreView can assist with the optimization of licenses by way of several license reports and management actions.
This report will focus on the license duplicated plan report. The purpose of the duplicated plan report is to quickly understand if users are receiving plans or services via more than one route.
The bulk of the Microsoft Office 365 license management issues are due to common licensing errors like purchasing more enterprise licenses than necessary, not aligning licenses with the exact employee usage, and collecting unassigned or inactive licenses.
Organizations with an actionable view into their SaaS environment are able to target specific groups of users to drive Microsoft 365 adoption, as well as transform the seemingly mundane task of license management into significant cost savings and boost productivity.
CoreView can optimize Microsoft 365 license usage by surfacing Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) Reports for the whole organization, enhancing Azure Information Protection (AIP) encryption and data loss prevention (DLP) actions by evolving historical processes based on files, groups, and users; mapping threat events and then linking those events with configuration information; and augmenting advanced eDiscovery AI searches for files and emails with reports that show user actions, like file access, user creation, sharing, forwarded email, and password changes.
These are some of the opportunities that CoreView presents to you. It helps organizations manage their cloud investment by tracking, reviewing, and reporting on various SaaS subscriptions and identifying wasteful plans or licenses.
You’ll be able to maximize your Microsoft 365 investment by optimizing licensing and driving adoption across your enterprise.
