3 Success Factors For Your MS Office 365 Deployment

Cloud adoption is rapidly growing across multiple industry sectors as organizations look for greater flexibility and efficiency gains. Research from Gartner found that the cloud computing will grow from $67B in 2015 to $162B in 2020 attaining a compound annual growth rate of 19%. But how do you know if you're even using them effectively?

As cloud services can be adopted quickly, and are positioned as being simple and easy to  use, their growing popularity comes as no surprise. However, many organizations are not maximizing the potential of their cloud services, which has an impact on their ROI.

Getting more bang for your buck

The inefficient use of Microsoft Office 365 is one scenario where organizations are missing out on potential ROI. Adoption of the cloud-based service is growing rapidly, with Microsoft expecting to have two-thirds of Office users moving to the cloud by fiscal 2019 (1st July 2018).

In fact, a Forrester report states that successful Office 365 adoption can give businesses an ROI of 162% within three years. Despite this, many organizations aren’t unlocking the product’s full potential. For example, the plethora of new features that are released by Microsoft on a regular basis can make it difficult for organizations to keep up.

Keeping it Cost-effective

In addition, organizations can find it challenging to monitor Office 365 usage – something ever-increasingly important in the era of GDPR. Understanding how Office 365 is actually used is too critical to maximizing cost-effectiveness and driving efficiencies within the workplace (why are you paying for what you don’t need?). Only by having visibility into usage can organizations understand if their current subscription is in line with their business needs.
