The Network Team has started helping its customers with file and security access management using Sharepoint online services.
Joey Grissom, TNT’s head of cloud engineering, recently helped a customer with multiple retail and vendor locations migrate their file system to SharePoint online services.
The business justification was simple. The company had already invested both in Office 365 for productivity apps and Azure for their primary business accounting application. Since their email, office and accounting were already in Azure, why not put the file system to simplify management and streamline administration.
Of course, it only helped that migrating didn’t change their costs and helped them remove the requirement of relying on their file servers and backup tools to maintain 24 x 7 availability. Now that all the files are in SharePoint online, file security and backup integrity can be managed via an online portal. Backup appliances, special software installs and proprietary knowledge are no longer a part of their file system management. It is all in the cloud.
Come talk to TNT about moving your files to the cloud. Many versions of Office 365 already include the cost of this feature, and you may not be getting the full value of your investment in Office 365.
We are here to help.
