We are a tiny firm right now but are fortunate that over the next 90 days we'll go from under 10 users to maybe 4/500. I'm knowledgeable enough to know that this is the time to get things right, maybe competent enough to get it right while small, and sensible enough to know that when we've made the transition it shouldnt be me that does any of this stuff.

I also know that I can't ask for advice here, this isn't the place for that.

I feel strongly that there should be a single source of truth for people. Right now we're a dev shop and we're all MS on that side (AAD, Azure etc), but we're all Google for everything else.

It feels sensible given our setup for the directory of people to be in Google but I can't for the life of me wrap my head around how I can set up Azure/Entra to prompt for Google auth. I know that is totally possible and I'm sure I'll work that out.

The utter mind bender is that given we're fully remote (early policy is anyone can use any device, personal or provided), how to track/manage a corp policy across both Windows and Macs. Everybody is trying to sell me their idea/product and I have nobody I can really trust.

So, my question is: does anyone know of a balanced, unsponsored, unaffiliated source that can assist an under-qualified out-of-her-depth Well-meaning person get this right before the end of Jan? Happy to deep dive, I've got a few weeks.

Google's MDM seems more Mac inclusive (despite the horrific interface) and AAD seems really limited but I haven't worked out the licensing for that yet so I'm probably missing something.
