Organizations and regions
On Demand management is based on the concepts of organizations. When you sign up for the On Demand service, you create an organization and you become the organization administrator. The organization can subscribe to modules. Organization administrators can use the tools provided by the modules to perform administrative actions on Azure AD tenants. You can add additional organization administrators and module administrators that have access to specific modules.
For most On Demand use cases, a customer creates a single organization. Multiple administrators and multiple tenants can be added to the organization.
Adding the same tenant to multiple organizations can result in conflicting application of polices and settings. When using multiple organizations to manage a tenant, the organization administrators must coordinate their management activities.
