Why Office 365 Reporting is a Must-Have for Your Organization

Posted by Juliette Ollagnier on Thu, May 26, 2016

If you began working in IT before cloud computing started going mainstream, you’re probably accustomed to some outdated reporting processes. With older versions of Microsoft Office, it was easy to access reports from traditional data sources like event logs or desktop tools. With Office 365, reporting tools are much different.

 Fortunately, IronPort is a relatively robust system, so it shouldn’t completely crash on a regular basis. However, it is far more likely that you will experience issues in global email performance and quality of service due to performance and health issues. In many cases, users will begin to complain of a degradation in service involving issues with their email delivery.
