It can be tough to keep track of everything with multiple accounts and tenants. It can also be time-consuming. As a result, you might feel like juggling too many balls at once. So how can Multi-tenant Office 365 help you?

What is Multi-tenant Office 365?

Multitenancy in Office 365 refers to the software-as-a-service (SaaS) model in which a single instance of the software serves multiple tenants. In other words, each tenant shares a typical example of the software but has its unique data and configuration settings. 

The benefits of multi-tenancy are that it can provide companies with centralized CRM and support. This can help reduce costs, increase employee efficiency and make the customer experience more streamlined by having one set of tools to manage, rather than relying on different systems.

What’s the use of Office 365 tenant setup? Multitenancy is used in several areas, such as Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, and Skype for Business Online. These services are offered as part of the Business and Enterprise plans.

It is famous for its multi-tenant architecture because it enables cost-effective resource sharing and data isolation and security between tenants.
