About this event

This webinar was presented live by Rich Gibbons and Matt Marnell from Flexera on Wednesday 6th December 2017. This was the eighth webinar in the series of ITAM in the Cloud Era.


Migrating to Office 365 / Renewal / Optimization


Moving to Office 365 offers many benefits but Asset Managers still need to be on guard.

You can’t…well, you shouldn’t…move to Office 365 (or any Cloud) without fully understanding what you have on-premises, why you have it and if you still need it.

However, that is only half of it as licensing in the Cloud isn’t necessarily straight forward.

With standalone options, different levels, bundled options, a huge range of features and subtle differences – it can be surprisingly easy to under and over-license. Equally, as new features continue to be added to existing licenses – you may not be making full use of what you’ve purchased.

Join us to understand more about Microsoft Office 365 licensing, what’s available and how to keep costs under control.
