Tenants support your product development process

Tenants are the primary organizational concept for the event-driven Services you develop and operate. When you create your Contextual account, you will receive access to your first tenant, and you can get started building Services right away. Multiple tenants provide support for larger development teams or product development organizations that want to separate Development, QA, and Production - or have other process-related considerations that require separation of work on services. Regardless of your needs, one or more Tenants can be used to achieve your software development lifecycle goals.
