During the pandemic, governments have leaned heavily on tools such as Teams and SharePoint to make telework possible. Now one of the biggest resellers in gov tech will sell tools to manage Microsoft's software.

With so many in government working from home, quite a few jurisdictions have reported to Government Technology that they’ve been leaning heavily on Microsoft cloud products like Teams and SharePoint to enable public servants to do their jobs remotely.

Now Carahsoft, a huge government vendor that resells technology, will start offering its customers a suite of products from a company that specializes in helping enterprises manage Microsoft products.

That would be CoreView. The company’s products include tools to help IT departments manage software licenses, find applications workers aren’t using very much, monitor for suspicious activity and automate workflows.

“As organizations’ workload and application adoption increases, complexities with license management, security and workflows arise,” said CoreView CEO Michael A. Morrison in a statement. “CoreView’s advanced monitoring and integrated reporting techniques provide agencies complete visibility and management of Microsoft 365 and other SaaS applications.”

Microsoft 365 includes popular Office products such as Word and Excel as well as newer cloud-based services such as SharePoint, Teams and security apps.

By bringing together different monitoring programs and metrics into one place, CoreView’s aim is to give users better visibility into how large numbers of people are using those products. By showing underused apps, for example, an IT team could cut licenses and save money.
