How Managed Service Providers Can Help You Save Time & Money When Migrating to Office 365

How Managed Service Providers Can Help You Save Time & Money When Migrating to Office 365

There are many benefits to migrating to Office 365 and not just through cost savings. More specifically, businesses can take advantage of the expandable data management that comes with a cloud hosted environment. However, a poorly planned Office 365 migration can lead to ballooning costs and wasted IT resources. So, let’s talk about how to pop that balloon and make sure your business is operating efficiently and on budget while migrating to and operating in the cloud.

Trying to quantify the number of items before migrating your email to Office 365 can seem overwhelming, especially for a team that has not experienced a migration. This is where working with an experienced Managed Service Provider (MSP) can launch your project in the right direction right from the start. An MSP will also help keep overall costs low and your project on track. Let’s face it, as the leader of an IT department you are always juggling projects and business priorities and dedicating the necessary time to a cloud migration project isn’t always feasible. That’s also when partnering with the right MSP that can provide the dedicated attention necessary to properly plan and execute your project is crucial.

Easing the Pain of M&A with an Office 365 IT Strategy

Easing the Pain of M&A with an Office 365 IT Strategy

Duro Bag was once a small, family-owned paper bag manufacturing business with traditional IT needs. After being acquired by a private equity firm, a new entity was created called Novolex. After a flurry of acquisitions, Duro quickly became part of the largest paper bag producer in the world with nearly 2,000 employees and billions of dollars in revenue. The CIO and Director of IT suddenly found themselves in charge of the IT infrastructure for an organization that was no longer a small manufacturing company, but instead a billion-dollar enterprise with multiple subsidiaries, and more coming on board.

“There is no way they had enough excess capacity in the original company to merge all the acquired IT systems together,” says Matt Scherocman, President of Interlink Cloud Advisors. “They had to go to the cloud because they couldn’t possibly move fast enough to build servers and infrastructure, to be able to consolidate the firm’s IT systems.”

Solve Your Licensing Conundrum with Microsoft’s New Secure Productive Enterprise (SPE) Licensing Bundle

Solve Your Licensing Conundrum with Microsoft’s New Secure Productive Enterprise (SPE) Licensing Bundle

Interview with Matt Scherocman – Licensing Wrangler and President of Interlink Cloud Advisors


Slashing through the dense thicket of software licensing often requires the wisdom of Solomon, the patience of Job, and an army of product experts. Understanding and sourcing your Microsoft licensing is like pouring over the Cheesecake Factory menu. But instead of deciding between hundreds of appetizers, lunch or dinner dishes, you must wade through pages of operating systems, applications, and security solutions.

“The entire licensing process has always been a problem for companies,” says Matt Scherocman, President of Interlink Cloud Advisors. “Thankfully Microsoft is doing something about it.”

That “something” is Microsoft’s new Secure Productive Enterprise (SPE) offering that may make licensing headaches a thing of the past. SPE is a secure, desktop licensing bundle that is sold by user. Before getting to this new, streamlined offering, however, Microsoft has taken us on a bit of winding branding and bundling journey.
