“At Lumen Technologies, we have found that using advisor in Microsoft Power Platform admin center is essential for our maintenance and governance. It enables us to quickly re-assign apps that have no owner or quarantine apps that are not in compliance. When used in conjunction with the Center of Excellence Starter Kit, advisor completes the picture. We are excited about the investment and the future how with advisor we can better protect and ensure the safety of our data and apps.

Power Platform Advisor is accessible to all tenant admins in the Power Platform admin center and customers with at least one Managed environment in their tenant via https://aka.ms/PowerAdvisor. It’s currently being rolled out to all the tenants and will be available in all tenants by the end of this month. Tenant analytics should be enabled in your tenant for Power Platform Advisor to work, and it might take up to 3 days for the recommendations to show up once the tenant analytics is enabled.

We are eager to see how you will use Advisor to optimize your Power Platform deployments. Your feedback is invaluable to us, so please don’t hesitate to share your thoughts and experiences.
