What’s New in Orchestry (January 2023)

We kicked off 2023 and the month of January with a bang – thanks to our wonderful Partners and Customers, we are solidifying our product roadmap for 2023 with a focus on some incredible features and functionality many of you, no doubt, will find incredibly useful.

In January, we put together many informative blog articles sharing our expertise in auditing and cleaning up your M365 environment, because there is no greater feeling than starting off a new year with an organized M365 tenant, free of inactive, ownerless, abandoned, and redundant workspaces. Last, but most certainly not least, we welcomed a new partner to our team. Read our summary of all the Orchestry happenings in the month of January!
