THE MICROSOFT AUDIT CHALLENGE

Microsoft conducts customer compliance reviews almost twice as often as other vendors, and their audits can generate 15 to 30 times their cost making them a lucrative money-maker and source of leverage for the Microsoft Sales Team.

Whether you're feeling overdue for an audit, unsure of your environment's entitlements and deployments, or have just received a notification from Microsoft, you're likely in line for a costly and disruptive process that you haven't budgeted the time or money for.

Savvy organizations don't wait for Microsoft to set the agenda.
