Trustmarque ran a Microsoft funded Business Productivity Assessment (BPA) to identify key areas where the customer could optimise their Microsoft 365 position. The recommendations of the BPA included the following:
Trustmarque FastTrack Ready Service
As a Microsoft FastTrack partner, we supported the customer to implement key apps and services within the Microsoft 365 suite. The initial priority concentrated on migrating their on-premise email solution, Exchange 2010 (which was due to go end of support) to the new Exchange Online platform. This Microsoft 365 adoption support is now extending to areas like SharePoint, Teams & native security features.
Power Platform – HR electronic forms and process automation
We identified a proof of concept opportunity to streamline the outdated, manual HR processes by utilising PowerApps, SharePoint lists and PowerBI. The solution helped to automate the entire process, providing greater visibility and control and helping to save both time and money.
User profiling and licensing review with Prism
We utilised Prism, a bespoke business intelligence asset management tool developed by Trustmarque, to help them understand the intricate software needs of their large and diverse workforce. Prism was able to identify what licenses are required by who – taking into account vast differences in the way people work and the tools they need.
InTune device security management
We identified that InTune, Microsoft’s mobile security solution, would deliver on their strategic direction on security, compliance and control as they begin to adopt more cloudbased apps and services. InTune has enabled their users to self-enrol devices and work on the apps they need, while remaining compliant with data protection regulations.
It was important for Trustmarque to leverage current investments to reduce Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) by identifying cost savings through the adoption of technology available through Microsoft 365.
