Managing Sprawl in Microsoft 365
How content sprawl happens, why it matters, and steps every IT leader should take to avoid it
Sprawl happens when anyone and everyone can create a site or team, usually without oversight, planning, or any kind of formal training.
This typically results in dozens/hundreds of rarely used or abandoned sites and teams, a poorly-performing search experience, and your intellectual property (content and conversations) spread across multiple locations each with a maze of chats, files, and channels.
The goal of this whitepaper is to help you better identify where content sprawl may be happening inside of your organization, and provide some community-hardened best practices for building your governance strategy.
Included in this e-book:
- Case for content governance
- The history of governance inside Microsoft 365
- Why organizations tolerate sprawl
- Creating an action plat and governance best practices
