Delivering an optimal user experience for Microsoft 365 services and applications like Exchange, SharePoint, OneDrive or Teams relies on multiple internal teams. This includes the network, device, and Office 365 teams as well as external service providers such as ISPs, proxy providers, and any additional security services.

This complexity is why troubleshooting user experience issues and reducing the impact when Microsoft Office 365 is down and a Microsoft Teams outage is challenging.
