Office 365 is a SaaS solution by Microsoft. There are 24.9 million total subscribers as of that last report. This confirms a vast number of people using Office 365 to help manage their businesses. I always had a question whether organizations need a monitoring solution for Office 365 or not. In this post, we will discuss Office 365 Monitoring and Dashboards in SCOM.

Microsoft Office 365 provides service monitoring options in Office 365 portal itself. I have seen some of the outages are updated in Health > Service health section of admin center after several hours.

Have you seen your Office 365 users are not mails even though Microsoft Office 365 Service health dashboard shows everything is “OKAY” with your tenant? Yes, there could be problems with network and connectivity side. The connectivity issue of LAN, WAN, Internet, WiFi, Proxy, and Firewalls also can cause issues with Office 365 or exchange online.
Would you like to have proactive or reactive monitoring for Office 365 environment? I assume, for a critical service like Office 365 should have proactive monitoring rather than reactive.
