Enterprise Shared Tenant

The Washington Enterprise Shared Tenant (the Tenant) changes how organizations have historically managed their IT infrastructure, by shifting the management of these resources to cloud providers. With the ability to serve multiple tenants from Microsoft 365 via a common, cloud-based server, Washington state agencies can benefit from shared resources (such as existing data centers, computers, operating systems, software applications and maintenance). Other advantages include on-demand access, enhanced security and mobility, and streamlined efficiency.
