Korn Ferry

“We now have as many people outside the US as in it, and although the GDPR doesn’t mandate a particular Geo for data residency, our clients are hypersensitive about data privacy issues, so we prefer to get in front of it. Our lifeblood includes data which is personal information about people, and with Multi-Geo, we’re able to proactively address client concerns about data residency.”

- Bryan Ackermann, Chief Information Officer, Korn Ferry

Dimension Data

“In addition to meeting the data residency requirements for some of our large corporate clients here in Australia, Multi-Geo allows our business to take advantage of the same productivity features as our global colleagues. Being part of one global Microsoft 365 tenant also streamlines intra-region staff transfers, reducing operational overhead and providing a much better experience for staff relocation.”
– Mark Miller, Chief Information Officer, Dimension Data Australia

“We mapped out the global geographies of employee groups and reporting hierarchies, and considered the legislation around privacy in different countries—something that Microsoft is addressing today with the Multi-Geo Capabilities in Microsoft 365.”
– George Katsouris, Global IT VP, Operations & Services at Coty
