Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) launched a cloud based azure application that provides developers, with single or bundled service for developing web based and mobile applications, in addition to developing myriad tools to deftly automate business across the cloud, thereby providing new services to consume APIs. MSFT adheres to ‘mobile first’ and ‘cloud first’ methodology.
Bringing apps under one hat
MSFT is implementing tools like mobile services, Biztalk and azure websites. Microsoft has robust plans in store; the company shall migrate away all users hailing from azure websites into a new package altogether – all for the same price altogether. A plethora of interested users would choose to migrate, in order to taste the fruit of the new service, though at a far slower rate, breaking a few noteworthy API services that are easy to inflict the necessary development changes upon.
The services that are currently in vogue allows the myriad developers to easily set up websites which can be built over a short notice, in a quite scalable way, wherein the myriad of backend tools can host the apps with push notifications, singular sign on, databases and such other features quickly and smartly. However, as and when the services got unified, different tools including production or staging can happen together at the blink of one’s eyes.
Omar Khan Unplugged
Microsoft’s azure platform director, Omar Khan, commented that Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) believes that on unifying the features, handling the azure platform and thereby the app gets all the more easy, simpler and hence time savvy. With this move being rationalized, the developers do not need to connect varied data into the applications from various places and locations.
The interesting part about the new unified services is that they are based out of logic applications. They operate in the same vein as applications that automate varied business processes like Dropbox, Office 365, etc. The innovative app service also possesses tool to manage the API component.
Indeed, Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) is targeting both the segments of developers – ones who are competent in developing line apps and those who come up with customer facing applications.
