Re: At what point?

And it becomes more and more difficult to advocate away from it when users have built a hodge-podge of company essential apps and groups that they just can't do without.

Jumping off the train as it gathers more momentum becomes more difficult.

It's is such a shame - Microsoft backend/admin products used to care somewhat about the IT dept and their admins. Now they are actively working to get users to proactively bypass security and force shadow IT through. They have decided that the ICT department is no longer their customer, the end user is.

What they forget is that it will be the higher echelons of the ICT dept who make the strategic bying decisions - such as whether to use Azure, AWS or Google for their compute and VM instances. This is where to hit Microsoft where it hurts as the end users will rarely care about their cloud provider, and it's easyish to move virtual machines.
