The Task

Office 365 underpins Thermo Fisher’s modern workplace. The biotech company now leverages OneDrive for Business and it was undergoing the Microsoft Teams shift from classic to modern SharePoint.

In this move, IT manager Deepa Ravindran and her team required the chance to move back and evaluate their demands. They immediately recognized they’d three challenges:

  1. Their relatively small IT team was burdened by SharePoint site provisioning tickets
  2. They’d almost 12 1000 SharePoint websites that lacked any governance or lifecycle management and
  3. They didn’t have a strategy to restore a website collection for any twelve month retention period.

The AvePoint Solution

Thermo Fisher evaluated multiple methods to address their challenges.

“…But we found AvePoint supplies a much better solution and simple usability for all of us that simply directly satisfied our need,” stated Ravindran.“ AvePoint’s Governance solution ought to touch-free lifecycle management also it complemented AvePoint’s backup solution.”

Cloud Governance’s self-service questionnaire and catalog of Office 365 services have helped Thermo Fisher’s users collaborate better.

“Some people won’t figure out what they need so rather of visiting [IT] immediately, now it’s all taken proper care of using that questionnaire tree and self service portal,” stated Ravindran. “The questionnaires offer an easy walk-through for that team to recognize ‘ok exactly what do I want.’“

When the SharePoint site, Team, or any other Office 365 workspace is provisioned, Thermo Fisher’s governance and lifecycle coverage is instantly put on the related Office 365 Group.

“After the automated provisioning, another factor may be the lifecycle management and anything we all do is undamaged with recertification,” stated Ravindran. “That’s an immediate benefit…and it’s a day and night difference.”

The Conclusion

Thermo Fisher’s IT tickets plummeted after deploying Cloud Governance, making their IT team more effective.

“Recently with this metrics our support tickets go lower 50 %, and none in our current tickets are suitable for provisioning a website [so a large burden on the IT team] is finished,” stated Ravindran.

Overall, Thermo Fisher is happy with their implementation of Cloud Backup and Cloud Governance.

“You guys are awesome and try to exceed,” stated Ravindran. “You go the additional key to make certain it’s all completed and 100 % fool-proof therefore we are prepared for production.”

Thermo Fisher has become resting assured that they’re in a position to sustain and promote more adoption across their atmosphere.
