Certero for SaaS - Microsoft 365 Module

Manage your Microsoft / Office 365 SaaS subscription more effectively: avoid Bill Shock, Cloud Sprawl, Shadow IT and Toxic Consumption



In many enterprises, the starters and leavers process is often poorly managed and can cause many issues for IT and other departments. Typically, leavers’ hardware and software assets are not tracked properly and organizations waste a lot of money purchasing extra equipment for new starters, rather than re-harvesting existing assets. The same is true for SaaS solutions like Microsoft 365 (formerly ‘Office 365’).

As organizations migrate to the cloud, many believe the days of license management are behind them. After all, you cannot be non-compliant with SaaS applications, right? However, while enterprises may not have to worry about licensing compliance, SaaS subscriptions still need to be managed. Neglecting this responsibility can lead to spiraling costs that are often difficult to address.

For example, as employees leave and new people join, licenses are often not re-harvested and organizations end up over-allocating subscriptions, along with their costs. Without a robust ‘starters and leavers process’, managing these subscriptions without centralized visibility across the Microsoft 365 estate is almost impossible. Before long, expenditure on unallocated, unused and under-utilized subscriptions grows to 10%, then 20%, then 30% and so on.
