Your Complete Guide to Microsoft FastTrack

Enterprises are increasingly realizing the efficiencies delivered by Microsoft Cloud but onboarding on to a new platform does induce some apprehensions. Microsoft FastTrack addresses such issues. It is clearly better than standard onboarding practices. FastTrack offers plenty of tutorials and systematic user guides to ensure Office 365 deployment is easier and Office 365 offerings can be utilized for driving significant business gains. It reduces overall Office 365 implementation time, helping teams configure their projects quicker on Office 365, eliminating project roadblocks.

Getting Started: What is FastTrack?

Most people know only about the primary purpose of FastTrack—as a support service that makes Office 365 migrations easier. FastTrack offers the most intuitive assistive approach, aimed at helping Microsoft retain its customers and catalyze more enterprise-level deployment of Office 365. The lesser understood component of FastTrack is the opportunity to work with Microsoft partners for creating customized solutions to streamline and ease workloads. This is in tune with Microsoft’s approach of gradually moving away from its software model. With Windows being offered as a service, the same strategy is being brought to Office 365. Here, users get regular software updates. This approach eases the path for Microsoft when rolling out new features or patchworks. Anticipated threats are resolved more intuitively via frequent security fixes and users can access commonly used Office offerings like Word and Excel via their browser.

How does a FastTrack Center Engagement Work?

In its contemporary format, Microsoft FastTrack is moving beyond the onboarding assistance aspect, shifting the focus towards helping businesses derive more value from their cloud ecosystem. By easing users into the cloud, tech adoption, onboarding and support costs are mitigated. The emerging FastTrack service is more about creating value-centric offerings and increasing customer service levels. The QuickLeads program is also about creating more scope for customer-client interactions.
