Building The Case

Backing up Microsoft 365 is a risk and value-based decision, but calculating the right course of action can be very difficult!

Organizations need to not only understand how to assess their risk of data loss and assign value to their data, but they then must calculate the value of different data protection approaches and vendors.

Our experts will walk you through how to make this determination for your specific organization across 5 different layers of analysis.

While this will be a Microsoft 365 centered discussion, the takeaways will be applicable to most SaaS platforms including Dynamics 365, Salesforce, and Google Workspace.

Discover 5 key levels of value analysis:

  • What is the value of your data and where does it live?

    Not all data is created equal; we’ll show how to think about your data’s value. We’ll also cover how to consider data across different services such as SharePoint and Outlook and how this can impact its ability to be recovered.

  • What is the cost of a data loss event?

    We’ll review several common types of data loss events, their likelihood, and the financial consequences they can have from regulatory fines to ransomware payments.

  • How quickly and with what granularity can I restore data?

    Let’s understand the costs from how much time is spent by users and IT team responding to data loss events and also determine the operational costs.

  • How much data do you have and how fast is it growing?

    This analysis is easy to perform, but vital to determining if leveraging a blanket retention policy strategy or self-hosted, on-premise backup solution is right for you.

  • How much time am I spending on backup operations?

    For a true cost/benefit analysis it is important to understand the hardware and time costs associated with maintaining and configuring your backup infrastructure or sorting through your different policies in the admin center.
