Cutting-edge Microsoft 365 governance: Rencore and Alight partnership

2 min read

Governance experts Rencore and Alight partner to offer a complete governance solution for the Microsoft Cloud.

We are delighted to announce our partnership with fellow Munich-based Microsoft technology consultants Alight. The partnership combines Rencore’s best-in-class governance software and Alight’s highly technical expertise to implement a robust and dynamic governance approach for all types of organizations operating on the Microsoft 365 platform.

Maintaining a healthy balance between collaboration and control is a fundamental cloud governance objective. For many organizations, reverting to type is too easy when increased platform growth occurs. Strategies such as blanket permission restrictions and reducing user access are commonly associated with the on-premises governance approach of yesteryear. Cloud governance must be dynamic and fluid as the platform it seeks to control.

Matthias Einig, Microsoft MVP, CEO and co-founder at Rencore explains:

We are thrilled to engage in a partnership with Alight. We see both the quality of our Rencore Governance software and the breadth of expertise Alight possess to implement a cutting-edge, modern governance solution that organizations are crying out for as cloud collaboration becomes the norm.

Alight incorporates Rencore technology to facilitate a cloud governance approach that scales and enforces their clients’ Microsoft 365 governance plan. With a focus on business outcomes, Rencore technology helps Alight transition their clients from a static governance approach to acting in real-time, nurturing both business collaboration and staying in control of IT.

Dr. Ralf Kuhn, CEO at Alight concludes:

With Rencore we can bring the governance of our customers to the next level. They have now a central view of all their data in Microsoft 365.

Rencore Governance connects to a Microsoft 365 tenant allowing organizations to choose which services they would like to monitor. Upon receiving an inventory of data, organizations can set up governance checks that meet their specific needs. By continuous monitoring, Rencore Governance assesses any violations against running checks. When a violation is discovered, the tool allows you to automate notifications, reports, and even actions to resolve the issue.
