If you want want to apply, now is the time. if you have not applied for one before, be sure to read this background info on what a Fasttrack Architecture Review is.

Then, you need to apply for one of the reviews.

And a quick reminder - What makes a good Fasttrack Architecture Review?

The best Fasttrack Architecture Reviews tend to happen at the stage when an ISV is either looking at an upcoming release of their software, and starting to think about what features or capabilities to add to their product and how the various technologies in the Microsoft stack might be of use, or b) wants to think through how a particular Microsoft technology might influence their own product plans (e.g. "How could SharePoint help us?"). An open mind and a willingness to discuss ideas are essential.

Conversely, a few things can prevent a good Fasttrack Architecture Review session. If you have already made your mind up and are simply looking for more detailed discussions, then this is possibly not the right forum - let us know and we can suggest the best routes forward. Similarly, if management are not behind the changes, or you are unable to bring a senior decision maker to the meeting, or there are no specific time scales for a new version, then these sessions can be less then optimum, and we urge you only to apply when the time is right for you.
