Life-cycle management of Office 365 can be a complex undertaking. Luckily, that's where software company Metalogix steps in. Metalogix's Essentials for Office 365 combines holistic user management, cloud migration, license optimization, mailbox and drive provisioning, and comprehensive backup all on one platform, requiring only one installation.
Principal Engineer at Metalogix Shamil Turner called Essentials for Office 365 "the easiest way to manage your users surrounding their onboarding, usage and offboarding of the Office 365 platform."
The migrator section of Essentials enables migration from SharePoint, as well as personal drives including Google Drive and Dropbox.
"What's awesome is we can understand the permissions surrounding Office 365," Turner said.
"Beyond that, we can easily grant permissions or clone and transfer permissions from one user account to another," he added.
Cross service management, analysis and data democratization is a breeze with Essentials, where everything is represented with charts and graphs in reports.
"What people really want to understand and see about Office 365 is what's actually going on. We do a great job of visualizing this in our administrative section," Turner said.
Essentials allows the user to change and transfer licensing for individual Office 365 users. It also includes extensive backup features.
Metalogix has a robust reseller program that includes deal-registration programs and the promise of a new stream of recurring revenue.
