Work account is an account created by an organization’s administrator to enable a member of the organization access to all Microsoft cloud services such as Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Intune or Office 365. A work account can take the form of a user’s work email address, such as email@example.com, when an organization federates or synchronizes its Active Directory accounts with Azure Active Directory.
Microsoft account, created by user for personal use, is the new name for what used to be called “Windows Live ID”. The Microsoft account is the combination of an email address and a password that a user uses to sign in to all consumer-oriented Microsoft products and cloud services such as Outlook (Hotmail), Messenger, OneDrive, MSN, Windows Phone or Xbox LIVE. If a user uses an email address and password to sign in to these or other services, then the user already has a Microsoft account—but the user can also sign up for a new one at any time.
We have made great efforts to improve MyAdvisor’s unauthenticated experience so that you can benefit from our tools and resources quicker and easier. Because of these changes, we’ve seen a drastic reduction in the use of MSA login and registration. To simplify the maintenance process, and to continue providing you better experiences with MyAdvisor, we have decided to remove support for MSA accounts. Please note: this change only affects MyAdvisor; users with MSAs on any other Microsoft platform/solution will not be affected.
The Skype Operations Framework (SOF) provided guidance to help customers and partners roll out and operate Cloud Voice capabilities. This framework has now evolved into Practical Guidance for Cloud Voice as part of FastTrack. We have made it easier for you to find relevant and targeted practical guidance that aligns to the familiar FastTrack customer journey, while still providing the ability for self service as well as streamlined FastTrack and Partner led engagements. Rest assured that the guidance, tools, training and partner offers from SOF are all still available as part of this transition!
We have aligned to the FastTrack customer journey framework and the simple mapping is as follows:
Deliver --> OnBoard
Operate --> Drive Value
Note: Over time, we will be updating our assets to align to this mapping.
