If you are about to embark on or just started on an Office 365 migration, you are in good company.
According to Okta, a cloud-based service that tracks organizational logins across multiple different cloud-based technologies, Office 365 was by far the most popular business application, followed by Salesforce, Box, and Google Apps for Business. Moreover, while transitioning to Office 365 is the right move for many enterprises, the migration process can be littered with a variety of stumbling blocks, which we discussed in an earlier blog post.
When migrating your end users to Office 365 or Windows 10, or whilst delivering any other major IT transformation project, it pays to have the right tools in place to help you get the job done as efficiently as possible.
With so many moving parts to manage in an IT migration, being able to rely on a sophisticated project management tool like Dashworks means you are already ahead of your competitors as it shortens the time your IT team spends on IT upgrades, which makes your business more agile and adaptable to change.
Whether you are an old pro at using Dashworks, have only begun using it recently, or are considering a purchase or evaluation, you should know that the latest version, Dashworks 4.3, has some improvements that IT professionals on a tight deadline are using to stay on top of their projects.

Therefore, a transformation like this requires detailed planning and thorough assessment of your IT landscape in addition to the device migrations.

In many enterprises, the problem of application sprawl or 'shadow IT' as it is becoming known is a serious issue for many IT managers. If IT is unaware of, or has not authorized certain IT-related software purchases, chances are that the resulting applications will not comply with the latest internal IT standards, open up a significant licensing risk and provide a serious ongoing security headache. Without ongoing IT asset management, IT departments often are surprised to find hundreds of apps, of which, maybe just a small proportion have been purchased through them. Even worse, some of the apps may have been bought multiple times (with multiple versions) by different business units or regions.
