Enterprise Office 365 tenant management presents IT teams with significant challenges due to the multiple workloads, admin consoles, and data sources used in managing Office 365.
These challenges are compounded by a very high rate of change and limited native cross-workload management capabilities. As tenants grow larger these challenges become ever more difficult to manage, and they hamper administration, troubleshooting, and IT service delivery.
Challenges of Managing Large Tenants
Poor visibility into what you have, especially the inability to break down licenses and their usage by function or geography
Tension between the need to reduce the number of global admins for security and the need to grant more elevated admin privileges to increase flexibility and speed of problem-solving
Difficult to grant the right permissions to the right people across the organizations, especially in geographically distributed organizations or in those with multiple business units
Limited granularity of control inside the tenant. Native tools provide either too much or nothing which leads to regular attempts to manage the balance between central management and local autonomy
No mechanism to create data boundaries around operating entities such as business units so that IT administrators can see only what they need to
High difficulty of keeping up with the rapid pace of change driven by Microsoft in addition to the change required by your own business. Homegrown PowerShell-based management tools are very difficult to keep current
Challenging to measure, monitor, and proactively increase adoption rates to maximize the value of your O365 investment.
