Office 365 - the leading SaaS solution in the world – has profoundly changed the nature of IT Service Management. As servers are moving to Microsoft, a lot of our customers are wondering how to transform their Service Management to fit the cloud delivery model.
The MSP and CSP world is getting bigger, every day. The market is growing; Microsoft estimates that Cloud Provider Managed Services will surpass USD 43 Billion next year. Who doesn’t want a piece of that pie?
Yes, the pie is big, but you’re not the only one at the table, and at the end, keeping cloud customers or winning a new one is harder than ever.

While this opens plenty of opportunities, it also comes with massive challenges for an IT organization. Now that services are delivered on devices that often are not under the maintenance of the company (BYOD), it is hard for IT to know if they are providing reliable delivery of the services, cloud or on-prem, that they provide.

Making the switch from an on-premises deployment to Office 365 is easier said than done. Large organizations in particular have complex infrastructures, with users requiring different applications and services from varying locations. Furthermore, regulations and technical roadblocks make it challenging to move applications without disruption.
That’s why hybrid deployment is often the best answer for those looking to transition to the cloud without interruptions. Here are a few other reasons why.
As technology changes, so does user experiences and expectations. The technology shift from computer mainframes to cloud computing brought about a host of new challenges for IT administrators to manage; and how we handle end users’ complaints must be carefully considered within the scope of how the technology has changed.
The rapid growth of Office 365 is undeniable. In a recent poll of IT decision makers, 78 percent indicated that they are currently using or planning to use Office 365 software and services. Office 365 has more than 85 million users, and is on track to reach 100 million users this year. However, many enterprises are running into network performance issues when they deploy Microsoft Office 365. Zscaler’s recent report shares how performance issues are impacting Office 365 users, with 70 percent of enterprises experiencing latency issues on a weekly basis.
When it comes to Office 365, Microsoft provides many tools that are helpful in giving administrators visibility into their service health, but there are some glaring gaps that make monitoring just as important as ever. The Office 365 Service Health Dashboard lets you know if there is anything impacting users, and provides status updates on each issue.

It’s almost impossible to get any work done when network performance issues get in the way. Research shows that network issues contribute to declines in revenue and end-user satisfaction, but it doesn’t take a breadth of data to know that outages are a major headache. That’s why it’s crucial for IT administrators to stay on top of network performance monitoring, anywhere, anytime.
So what do you do when users outside of your main office complain about slow networks or applications?
IT applications are built around the end-user experience, and as moreGSX customers transition from on-premises to hybrid service delivery, we’ve faced many latency issues that have negatively affected the end-user. However, ensuring that our infrastructure provides the best end-user experience, when we don’t always have the root cause, is really dependent on the network.
