Organizations are seeing a growing need to control permissions with granularity to optimize processes and workflow. With role-based access control, or RBAC, access and entitlement are decided through granular methods. By using granularity as a process for authorization, organizations can control the access or entitlement of the requester for the requested resource. RBAC can help reduce employee downtime and manage access control policies more efficiently.

The Microsoft Office 365 administration portal was not built to handle day-to-day operations belonging to large volumes of users, or licenses, whether you are in hybrid, cloud only or multitenant environments.
