The hidden problem Cloud services have caused for businesses

Cloud services are designed for quick setup and little maintenance. This has obvious advantages, but it leads businesses to spend money on things they don’t need, subscribe to multiple software services that do the same thing, and to deploy applications with the default configurations that are not the right fit for your business.

If you ever hear your stakeholders say things like this, it could be time for an IT Audit:

  • Why do our IT costs keep increasing?

  • How can we decrease our IT spending?

  • Do we have good visibility over what we’re spending our IT budget on, and why?

  • Do we know where all of our data is? And how do we know who can access it?

  • I thought Exchange / Teams / SharePoint etc. was supposed to be good. Isn’t there a better / cheaper alternative?


How can Mindfield help?

With just a short engagement, Mindfield will review what applications you’re using, your current Microsoft licensing and utilization, and review application configurations.

We’ll then provide you with an actionable step-by-step report telling you where you can save money, enhance security and business functionality, and reduce your IT administration and maintenance overhead. And if you need any kind of support to action the report, we can help you there too.

Mindfield is not a software reseller, so this isn’t a ploy to get you to buy licenses from us. Our goal is to help our clients make the most of the software services they already pay for, and to reduce unnecessary costs.

Customer Story

Our client had a lot of pain points

Related to a lack of visibility and control over their IT services and sub-optimal configuration of their software. Business users were procuring their own Cloud-based software services, costs were escalating, there were process and data silos, and stakeholders were concerned about security.

Mindfield started by

Creating a list of in-use software, cataloging who used it and for what purpose. We could then quickly identify duplicate or redundant services, where the client was paying for different software that did the same thing. We then ran some workshops to diagram key processes spanning multiple teams, to help identify what systems to keep and what should be retained and integrated. We helped them put together an action plan and did most of the technical implementation. We also did a full audit of their Azure subscription and the key Microsoft 365 admin centers, including Azure AD, Security and Compliance, Exchange Online, SharePoint, Teams, and Endpoint Manager.

We found

Multiple security issues that could be easily remedied. We found a lot of opportunities for implementing policies, dynamic groups and automation, to reduce administration and improve compliance. We found they were paying for more expensive licenses than they actually needed, and worked directly with their CSP to reduce their monthly bill. And we found a lot of ways they could significantly reduce their costs on Azure by cleaning up or scaling down resources.

Result

For our client was a complete 180 in terms of visibility and control over IT costs. They saved a lot of money, reduced administrative overhead, and increased their credibility within their organization by improving user experience and process efficiency.
