Why you need Microsoft 365 governance

Microsoft 365 and Microsoft's Office applications don't need an introduction any more. Teams create, communicate, collaborate, and get great work done every day thanks to this suite of business applications. 

That's exactly a source of risk and a main reason why you should elaborate a well-thought governance around it: collaborators might end up creating and duplicating dozens of folders, files, collaboration spaces, multiplicating the use of storage, granting access to documents to external parties and even creating security risks. 

That's where our added value comes in the picture: we facilitate your digital transformation & empower your employees to become happy and more productive in a secure & well managed Microsoft365 environment. We can accompany you during each step of your Microsoft 365 journey to this happy, productive & modern workplace.

Licence optimization

Are you having difficulties in seeing clear in all the different types of Microsoft 365 licences? You are not alone! Our Microsoft 365 licence optimization track will make sure you only pay for what you actually use, and you get the most out of your licences.

Our approach

In general, customers call on us with two different needs: either there is a clear, well-defined project, or they come with a more general question: they know that something has to be done, but they don't quite know where to start.

In both cases, our pragmatic approach is what sets us apart, and we will propose an approach tailored to your specific needs. We won't create big bangs or propose time-consuming & costly studies, but come with a hands-on approach that delivers results. We'll accompany you with a complete 360° approach including analysis, roadmap definition, technical execution & change management. Our approach covers the Azure Cloud administration & security, over license optimization all the way to productivity apps & user adoption.

Hereunder you'll find a brief overview of our approach. Of course, no project is exactly the same. Please reach out to us to discuss your needs in detail.

"Over the years, I started to specialize more and more in the Microsoft 365 ecosystem. Often, the complexity of licensing within the MIcrosoft365 ecosystem is a quasi inextricable tangle for customers that they find very difficult to clarify. It gives me great satisfaction to assist my customers in this respect and to ensure that they get the full potential out of their licences."

"In my role as senior Microsoft365 consultant, I manage Microsoft365 projects for clients of all sizes and industries. In some projects my role is limited to one specific part, but the projects where we achieve the greatest customer satisfaction are those where we go through the entire process together with the client: starting with an analysis of the existing situation and needs, through a development and integration process to cloud administration, security and backups."
