The Premier Support plan is part of the “Enterprise support offering” and is equivalent to the Professional Direct support plan that is available for all Azure users. The Premier support plan, in addition to the Pro-Direct option, includes personalized hand-on assistance and training to maximize your return on investment; as well as a dedicated Technical Account Manager who can drive pro-active support for all your Business solutions (including non-Microsoft Applications).
