Ultima CSP Relaunch scheduled for next month

Ultima has been working hard to improve our CSP platform, value-add and support that we offer. We are now in the final stages, with the launch planned for March.

This will provide customers with customer facing portals, reporting services, updated service delivery descriptions and support options. We look forward to sharing more with you all in the near future.

MyAnalytics now available for all

Previously only Office 365 E5 users would have this feature as standard unless purchased separately. This is now available for all Office 365 users under Enterprise and Business plans.

The tool gives a weekly personal insight to your end users of their time management and handy hints and tips to help improve these.

Updated Dynamics 365 Licensing Guide

Microsoft update the licensing guide for Dynamics 365 on a regular basis, to reflect amendments and add-ons. For the latest guide please click here.


New Advanced Security and Compliance offering

One of the main reasons customers adopt Microsoft 365 E5, is for the security and compliance capabilities it offers for dealing with cybersecurity threats, along with complex information protection requirements.

This remains Microsoft’s hero offering, but to address users that have not yet invested in M365 E5, Microsoft have announced that, as of 1st February 2019, they are introducing new packaged Microsoft 365 E5 security and compliance offerings to be attached to M365 E3.

The new Microsoft Identity and Threat Protection offering unifies our security value across Office 365, Windows, and Enterprise Mobility + Security (EMS). Available at $12 per user, per month.*

The new Microsoft Information Protection and Compliance offering captures increased demand for data governance, information protection, search, and discovery solutions related to regulatory requirements like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Available at $10 per user, per month.*
