Case Overview

A client that Oakwood recently worked with had invested in Office 365, including some of the higher-cost licenses which include security & compliance features. They were struggling, however, in understanding what to prioritize first in terms of rollout and adoption.

Some content had been migrated, along with some Microsoft Teams for collaboration.  However, not all of the content was moved from on-premises infrastructure. Things such as; governance, guidelines and training were not included in the previous efforts which slowed internal departments adoption and potential collaboration.  In addition, Microsoft enhancements and changes to both Security and Microsoft Teams added complexity and understanding of key decisions. 


What Oakwood Delivered

First, Oakwood worked with project stakeholders to define the vision and future state. During guided workshops, our customer shared their current business challenges and Oakwood Consultants reviewed what was possible within the scope of 365.  Since modern workforce projects involve a lot of moving pieces, guidance to move from “what’s possible” to “what’s recommended” enabled our customer to move forward with key decisions.

Oakwood teamed with project stakeholders to create a clearly-defined roadmap that incorporated all of the resources, both technical and human, into a comprehensive solution for their modern workforce enablement.

This roadmap enabled our customers to gain buy-in from their departments to leverage Office 365 and improve collaboration and information security to their modern workforce as well as defined successful adoption 3, 6, and 12 months in the future.
