Inside your organization, content, communities, teams, groups, and sites grow over time. This is a positive result of digital adoption. As those digital workspaces grow in usage, volume, and variety, it can be challenging to manage and understand how the technology is leveraged, by whom, and where.
Understanding SharePoint and Teams Sprawl issues are crucial
For many organizations, understanding of digital workspaces and how they are being used is low because it often isn’t prioritized from the beginning. The organization may know that the workspace exists, perhaps who created it, and when it was created, but not much more about it. Certainly not enough to proactively manage the lifecycle, proactively support adoption, manage compliance effectively, or improve how people work within and across these workspaces.
For many organizations, the barrier to better management and support is due to a lack of understanding. Lack of insight leads to the sprawl being classified as “unmanaged sprawl.” Transitioning to “managed sprawl” is the number one focus of effective IT Governance for the Digital Workplace.
