Multi-Geo: Microsoft’s New Globally Reaching, Enterprise-Grade Data Location Controls

Multi-Geo: Microsoft’s New Globally Reaching, Enterprise-Grade Data Location Controls

At a time, when there are so many regulations from governments, corporate compliance and third-party regulators, Microsoft is guiding the path to more granular data location controls within organizations on a global scale with their Multi-Geo feature. This feature gives organizations with Office 365 the ability to put their end user’s Office 365 data in different Microsoft data centers across the world and setup unique permissions for each country, and it is now available for Exchange Online and OneDrive for Business. Future releases of Multi-Geo will include support for SharePoint Online and Office 365 Groups.

Multi-Geo Features

To see some of the features and Multi-Geo capabilities and learn how to implement Multi-Geo within your organization, review the Microsoft Mechanics’ video introduction below.

Multi-Geo is currently available to customers with a minimum of 5,000 users and requires the customer to license a minimum of 5% of their total user accounts with Multi-Geo at a service cost of $2/user/month. Currently, Multi-Geo is available widely, but not quite everywhere in the world yet. See below for the current Map of available Geos:

Empower Your Firstline Workers with Microsoft’s F1 M365 Offering

Empower Your Firstline Workers with Microsoft’s F1 M365 Offering

Today’s businesses are ever more dependent on their Firstline workers. A Firstline worker is someone whose main job is focused on creating or delivering a company’s product. This could be workers who interface directly with a customer or those employees building your product on the manufacturing floor. These Firstline workers frequently have been under resourced with technology. Many companies find it difficult to justify paying the same price for software subscriptions for a Firstline worker versus a traditional knowledge worker, when Firstline workers spend very little time in front of a computer. Microsoft recognized this challenge and began offering Kiosk plans. Those plans first evolved into the F1 plans and now Microsoft includes the F1 plan into their brand-new Microsoft 365 (M365) F1 bundle. The M365 F1 offering includes three major pillars – Office 365 functionality; a scaled down version of the Enterprise Mobility + Security Suite; and Windows 10. Microsoft has priced this product aggressively, which is less than a third of the cost of the regular Microsoft 365 E3 or E5 plans, while offering all the features and security your Firstline worker needs to be successful.

Power BI Licensing Options – What fits your needs best?

Getting the most value from the data within your business requires a powerful set of tools. Giving actionable visual representation to this data is key for your company’s decision makers. Successful companies are accomplishing this through the use of Microsoft’s Power BI business intelligence tool because it can combine data from many different sources and expose new correlations in the data that have never been seen before.

There are three major ways to license Power BI for an organization: Power BI Desktop, Power BI Pro, and Power BI Premium. However, most clients will ultimately use a combination of these three solutions to effectively empower their end users with BI data.
