Avoid These 5 Mistakes When Managing Microsoft 365

In today’s hyper-connected, mobile-first, “there’s an app for that” world, organizations must constantly innovate to satisfy the demands of their employees and customers, most of whom expect quick and reliable service at their fingertips on any device they choose. Thankfully, the latest advancements in cloud (and specifically Microsoft 365) technology give organizations of all sizes the ability to modernize for better security, greater functionality, and workforce efficiency.

However, as organizations move systems and processes from predominantly on-premises environments to cloud-based applications and platforms, they often fail to fully understand the impact these changes have on their existing processes and IT operations.

Experienced managers know that deployment of any enterprise-scale technology requires a tremendous amount of upfront planning followed by careful execution. Sometimes the biggest management headaches can be obfuscated by the seemingly streamlined and straightforward technology rollouts. Microsoft 365 is a perfect example of complexity masked by user-friendliness.

In a webinar this week, I’ll be joining fellow Microsoft MVP Richard Harbridge, CTO at AvePoint partner 2toLead, to discuss “The Biggest Microsoft 365 Management Mistakes And How to Solve Them)” where we’ll share guidance and real-world examples of deploying, configuring, and managing Microsoft 365.

To join us on April 14th at 11am Eastern, register here.

In this webinar, we’ll address a number of questions including:

  • How do organizations keep pace with Microsoft?
  • How do organizations keep up with industry & organizational change?​
  • How should organizations best approach multi-tenant & multi-cloud?​
  • What are the top mistakes Microsoft 365 managers make?​
  • What tools should more Microsoft 365 managers leverage more?

Successful operational management of Microsoft 365 necessitates having strong governance and change management models with a clearly defined and communicated plan. Having a Microsoft 365 management plan means that you can more proactively monitor and manage your business systems and the technology platforms that you rely upon.

Ultimately, the tools you deploy should enable you to improve upon key business processes. Your platform should enable quicker, more detailed collaboration between co-workers, partners, and customers, allowing you to do more, and do it better and more accurately. However, good collaboration should not come at the expense of secure, compliant, and well-governed solutions.
