FFS Microsoft. I'm trying to sell to our management the benefits of O365 and there you are making me look like a p***k at every opportunity.
Thanks for F all.
Hidden dependencies in Microsoft's on-premises Dynamics 365 can leave users open to cloudy outages. Office 365 fell over for a few hours on 6 April in Europe and Asia, taking down anyone relying on Microsoft's cloud service. However, behind-the-scenes connections to Azure meant that those running on-premises versions were also …
I'd like to come up with some witty, detached take on this but actually that pretty much describes them.
Like all suppliers.
They are your suppliers, not your friends.
They are your "friend" as far as they a) Help you do your business b) Don't f**k your business up.
As they do less of a) and more of b) they become less of a "friend."
So locally they have everything they NEED to login and start, but the login process tries to connect to Azure for the Skype bit and won't continue if it fails? And their "fix" is to entirely disable the Skype functionality, and require it to be done manually? Why not simply remove the dependancy?!? If you can connect, great, if not then continue the login process and let the user crack on using their local resources which are working.
