Office 365 Group Provisioning

Provision Office 365 Groups

Office 365 Groups are complex objects which require careful consideration over how they are created.  This is because an Office 365 Group includes an AD Security Group, Exchange Mailbox and Modern SharePoint Team Site.  Therefore, any solution for provisioning Office 365 Groups needs to offer control over how these objects are created.

In contrast the native experience for creating Office 365 Groups provides very little control.  This is because all users are able to create Office 365 Groups, with no restrictions on how they are named.  Consequently, there is significant concern in IT Teams because of the chaos created in Active Directory and Exchange.

ProvisionPoint helps organisations better manage Office 365 Groups with a comprehensive provisioning solution.  This is because administrators can control who can create Office 365 Groups.  Furthermore, approval processes can ensure the correct authorisation for an Office 365 Group.  Finally, administrators have full control over how the Office 365 Groups are named, including using Dynamic properties.
