The AvePoint Solution
Thermo Fisher evaluated multiple solutions to address their challenges.
“…But we found AvePoint provides a far better solution and easy usability for us that just directly satisfied our need,” said Ravindran.“ AvePoint’s Governance solution had a better touch-free lifecycle management and it complemented AvePoint’s backup solution.”
Cloud Governance’s self-service questionnaire and catalog of Office 365 services has helped Thermo Fisher’s users collaborate more effectively.
“Some people won’t really know what they want so instead of coming to [IT] right away, now it’s all taken care of through that questionnaire tree and self service portal,” said Ravindran. “The questionnaires provide an easy walk-through for the team to identify ‘ok what do I need.’“
Once the SharePoint site, Team team or other Office 365 workspace is provisioned, Thermo Fisher’s governance and lifecycle policies are automatically applied to the corresponding Office 365 Group.
“After the automatic provisioning, the other thing is the lifecycle management and anything we do is intact with recertification,” said Ravindran. “That’s a direct benefit…and it’s a night and day difference."
