Hi,
I wanted to create an application that will be responsible for reading data from SharePoint, MS Team, and Exchange (Chats) and obviously needs to perform some automation on top of that data.
Graph API option seems the best bet to achieve this. But this is an extremely slow process considering the end users may have more than 1TB of data.
Just curious where the Microsoft bots run. If I create a bot and host it on azure. Will it speed up the process. I am time taken for request and response of Graph API.

    Hi @ASR ,

    I don't think it would speed up the process. You still have to use Graph API to deal with the 1TB data in bot. This is no different from read the data in an application.

    And this is a demo project to build Bot Framework bots with Microsoft Graph that would help you:
