Cloud Governance Now Available As Microsoft Teams App. January 22nd, 11:00 am EST.
Many of the organizations that we work with have experienced challenges when deploying Microsoft Teams across their organization. Among other things, we frequently see scenarios such as:
1. Organizations that turn on the application with insufficient planning for governance.
2. Teams sprawl due to a lack of user understanding resulting in too many workspaces to manage with existing resources.
At the core, Cloud Governance is a solution to both of those obstacles and so much more. Effectively manage sprawl by automating the provisioning, management, and lifecycle of teams, sites, groups, and more. Join AvePoint Strategic Consultant Wendy Henry and learn how to encourage and embrace adoption by utilizing everything Cloud Governance has to offer.

Migrate to Office 365 & Save Money!
The extensibility of the Office 365 platform means you can deliver more for less, BUT only if you can identify, migrate and remove redundant workloads.
Get rid of the extra license cost, lower the burden of supporting multiple applications, and simplify life for your users. It’s a win, win…win.
Join our expert, Hunter Willis, as he walks you through how to get from Application A to Application B and deliver savings and free up budget for your organization.
This includes the unauthorized use of applications or “shadow IT” that can pose a risk to the security of your company’s data.
