The Results:

  • Hybrid Office 365 adoption bottlenecks were removed
  • 90% of the added hybrid administrative burden was eliminated
  • 30% reduction in cost of software maintenance
  • Simplified user provisioning and management of on-premises and cloud Microsoft assets
  • 80+ Legacy administration policies consolidation into 2 Cayosoft Rules
