Customers moving to the cloud can struggle to achieve control, visibility and automation, but there are tools that can assist with governance, cost control and migration.
For example, when migrating essential data and workloads to the Microsoft cloud – whether Office 365 or Azure – business customers typically want to achieve a more flexible, scalable, and productive work environment, notes ShareGate – which happens to offer some tools to solve the situation.
Too often in migrations, data can go missing, and security breaches can be effectively enabled – even when the IT team is working overtime to move everything across.
ShareGate Desktop can ease the route ahead by helping users prepare, execute and validate SharePoint or Office 365 migrations.
Then there are governance issues. The Microsoft 365 workflow needs to be managed to provide flexibility and end-user autonomy while maintaining security and visibility for IT professionals. This can be tedious and time-consuming compared to current on-prem servers.
“ShareGate Apricot monitors your Office 365 tenant and highlights ways to make it healthier. It can help you keep your Microsoft Teams organized and automate external sharing reviews so you can be sure your data is secure,” according to the vendor.

“Guide users towards secure and productive collaboration in Microsoft Teams while keeping a close eye on what’s going on, so you can easily course-correct as you scale.”
Then there are cloud cost management and optimisation tools like ShareGate Overcast, which can help ensure clear visibility of Azure resource usage, keeping track of who is spinning up what and why, or finding and fixing costly anomalies.
This ShareGate tool can help business users make sure they’re only using and paying for what they need.
