How do you calculate Application Manager Online consumption?

The Application Manager Online pricing model is based on the solution used by the end-customer. The total amount of registered application entries in the end-customer application portfolio library is collected every month. Registered application phase and state is not taken into account as well as AppUpdate due to the fact that AppUpdate service has its own pricing model. Also the historical data of precious invoices has no impact on next months consumption calculation.

Do we need Azure AD or Office365?

No, Application Manager Online supports also Active Directory/LDAP and AD Federation Services integration – you will be able to authenticate with your own AD account.

Do we need SCCM?

No, there is no requirement for SCCM. If you do have SCCM you can benefit from Application Manager Online integration with that system and you can use features like Template Deployment. Without SCCM you need to install the application on the machines dedicated for testing manually.

Can Application Manager Online work with both SCCM 2012 and the current branch?

Yes. Both versions are supported, and you can even set up Application Manager Online to support multiple deployment severs in parallel. This is quite common when you are doing an SCCM side-by-side upgrade.
