New Research Report Explores the Benefits and Value of Deploying Microsoft Office 365 Using 3rd Party Solutions

WASHINGTON, D.C – November 11, 2015 — / — Metalogix, the premier provider of unified cloud management software to migrate, manage and secure content across enterprise collaboration platforms, today announced that it was recognized as a key third party vendor that helps enhance and accelerate the migration to Microsoft® Office 365 in a recent Osterman Research report, Making the Business Case for Office 365.

“Osterman Research strongly recommends that the majority of organizations considering migration to Office 365 – particularly mid-sized and large organizations – should seriously consider the use of third party offerings to supplement the native capabilities in Office 365,” said Michael Osterman, president and founder, Osterman Research. “The use of third party offerings to supplement the capabilities in Office 365 will mitigate the risks inherent in a single-vendor approach to managing communication and collaboration in the cloud.”

The report, which outlines how Office 365 is reducing the cost of ownership for today’s businesses, identifies key areas where third party solutions enhance Office 365’s value. These include:

  • The ability to simplify the management of permissions across various Office 365 services including Exchange and SharePoint for enhanced security
  • The elimination of redundant information to help minimize storage capacity requirements
  • Support for email and content archiving and the eDiscovery of archived content
  • Solutions to further enable business continuity and disaster recovery

“Less than a year ago organizations making the move to Office 365 demanded higher speed and greater fidelity migrations without needless application outages. Today speed and fidelity are table stakes as we see our 22,000 clients demanding greater permission security, recoverability and administration of the content and users to address their mandate for a non-disruptive migration to the cloud,” said Steven Murphy, CEO Metalogix. “At Metalogix, we’ve designed a unified management suite to support our clients’ non-disruptive move to Office 365 – regardless of where they are in their content collaboration lifecycle. From pre-migration preparation, to seamless migration and simplified ongoing management, Metalogix is there to support Office 365 users every step of the way.”
