Microsoft 365 License Health Check
A rapid assessment of Microsoft ‘Software as a Service’ consumption and identification of cost optimisation opportunities for Microsoft 365 and Office 365.
Microsoft has transformed the way in which organisations acquire and consume licenses for Windows, Office, Collaboration, Management, and Security Tools.
However, license and cost management of Office 365 and Microsoft 365 is often overlooked resulting in considerable overspend and needless shelfware. This is further perpetuated by Microsoft’s approach to bundling their SaaS products adding to the cost of idle user subscription licenses.
Without the necessary governance and licensing expertise, many organisations will create unknown financial waste due to challenges such as:
- SaaS user subscription license management
- Suboptimal user requirements profiling
- Shelfware created by a lack of adoption
- Security and compliance management
This unmanaged cost and waste are no longer palatable for organisations on the lookout to reduce IT spend. Businesses need a quick way to resolve this concern and manage ongoing, without additional laborious administration and overheads.
