​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Business Case for Site Provisioning



June 20​​, 2018

Peter Carson, President

When left unchecked Office 365 groups can get out of hand with multiple groups for the same purpose, empty groups that are not in use, a hierarchy that is difficult to navigate, corporate templates not being​ used for the SharePoint modern team sites being created, among many other problems. On the other hand, if you restrict users access too much to groups then they will never adopt them, and they are a very powerful tool for organizations. In this blog we discuss some of the business goals that will be solved by this solution, how it is built, and the major takeaways.​

All organizations, regardless of their size, rely on external parties to support their daily operations. It is important to know what is the best method of sharing content out to these external users.
