About Quest On Demand

Quest On Demand is a cloud based management platform, providing access to multiple Quest Software Microsoft management tools through a single interface. Cloud based is a term that refers to applications, services or resources made available to users on demand via the Internet. Quest On Demand Global Settings is a Software as a Service (SaaS) application where application software is hosted in the cloud and made available to users through quest-on-demand.com.

The Quest On Demand management platform is based on the concepts of organizations, task based modules and Azure AD tenants. When you sign up for the Quest On Demand service, you create an organization. The organization can subscribe to task based modules. Organization administrators can use the tools provided by the modules to perform administrative actions on Azure AD tenants.
