Govern 365 Now Available in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace

Microsoft Office 365 users now gain access to Govern 365, an Office 365 governance tool that balances governance, security and user empowerment in an intuitive way toward better adoption of Office 365

Milpitas, CA, USA — January 31, 2020 — Netwoven Inc. today announced the availability of Govern 365, an Office 365 governance tool, in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online store providing applications and services for use on Azure. With Govern 365, end users of Office 365 can now easily provision Office 365 workloads through a self-service mode. At the same time, IT administrators can exercise fine-grained control on container lifecycle management and use Power BI-based actionable inventory reporting, all together resulting in better productivity, easier security compliance and improved user adoption of Office 365.

Netwoven Inc., founded in 2001 by senior-level executives from Microsoft, Oracle, and Intel, is a leading professional services provider specializing in Microsoft cloud services and technologies. It helps organizations in their journey to the Microsoft cloud by designing and deploying solutions for content and collaboration, cloud infrastructure and management, analytics, and custom development. Netwoven offers its services in the form of consulting, technology, product sales and expert staffing to meet the varying need of its customers.

The challenge with the fast adoption of Office 365 with a large user community lies in enabling the users to choose the right workload (e.g., SharePoint, Teams, Outlook Groups) for a specific user need. The governance challenge stems from the ability of the IT administrators in managing content sprawl and fixing accountability at a granular level to maintain the right balance between administrative control and user empowerment within Office 365.

Govern 365 addresses these issues in a sleek, adaptive and foolproof manner. The capabilities of the tool and its benefits can be summarized below.

  • Empowers users to choose their own configurable wizard-based process to request creation of containers
  • Manages content lifecycle and sprawl with rule-based smart disposition of stale content
  • Provides security assurance through an automated account as well as access recertification to validate ownership and permissions, starting at the container level and continuing down to all securable objects.
  • Enables actionable insights into all containers through Power BI-based inventory reporting, and admins can take actions toward further governance control in few clicks.

Govern 365 empowers Microsoft Office 365 end users and takes the burden off administrators for regular activities, reducing shadow IT costs and improving productivity and user adoption rate.

“Organizations around the globe are gaining tremendous value from moving to Office 365. That value, however, comes with some of its own considerations. Interest in appropriate governance for Office 365, especially to help with limiting content sprawl, is skyrocketing as administrators and service owners grapple with how best to unlock the productivity potential of the Office 365 platform,” said Andrew Sutton, Product Manager, Govern 365.

“Microsoft Azure Marketplace lets customers worldwide discover, try, and deploy software solutions that are certified and optimized to run on Azure,” said Sajan Parihar, Senior Director, Microsoft Azure Platform at Microsoft Corp. “Azure Marketplace helps solutions like Govern 365 reach more customers and markets.”
