Microsoft’s 365 is evolving quickly – adding new features and functionality, leading to a growth in its popularity. While M365 offers numerous security, governance, and compliance features, moving to the cloud is no small undertaking. Companies moving files to M365 often struggle with a lack of metadata, which typically need to be reorganised to be effective. The lift-and-shift method can be wasteful and problematic.
Experts Andrew Cowan and Simon Costello from ActiveNav and special guest Ajay Iyer from Microsoft shared best practices about M365 governance. They tackled all the ‘M’s: migration, metadata and MIP labelling, and why we need to think about governance as an evolving process.
The session covered:
· How to develop an IG strategy for Microsoft 365
· How to plan for an M365 file share migration
· How to use identify and enhancement metadata for value creation
· How to classify a file based on its MIP label.
