FAQ - Azure App Consult

  • Sessions are delivered via Teams and involve interactive whiteboarding and PowerPoint presentation.
  • Your Microsoft engineer will provide a summary report including any additional, helpful resources.
  • No. Because App Consult is a proactive advisory service, we recommend addressing technical issues by submitting an incident report via the Azure portal.
  • App Consult engineers are highly specialized and focused on Azure. They don’t provide guidance on other cloud products, such as Office 365 or Dynamics 365, during App Consult sessions.
