2024 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Integration Platform as a Service

Tailored integration to meet your unique business needs 

In a world where every enterprise is unique, we understand the importance of providing the freedom to choose and adopt only the services that align with your requirements. Our enterprise integration offering, Azure Integration Services—which is comprised of Azure API Management, Azure Logic Apps, Azure Service Bus, Azure Event Grid, Azure Functions, and Azure Data Factory—is designed with this flexibility in mind. Azure Integration Services allows you to choose and adopt only the services you need. Whether you’re looking to integrate on-premises systems, cloud-based applications, or a hybrid of both, Azure Integration Services provides the building blocks necessary for your integration success. 

Anil Shah, Chief Executive Officer of CloudFronts, finds great value in the adaptability provided by Azure Integration Services.

Azure Integration Services gives organizations the flexibility to tailor their integration solutions to their needs, while keeping costs under control.”

Don’t pay for what you don’t need 

We understand the common challenges of budget constraints and scalability issues, and we’ve designed Azure Integration Services to tackle these head-on. Our flexible pay-as-you-go pricing model ensures that you only pay for what you use, eliminating the burden of hefty upfront licensing fees. As your business expands, Azure Integration Services seamlessly scales to meet your evolving needs. This guarantees that your integration solution remains not only efficient but also cost-effective. 

For Ajay Dhingra, Founder and President of Khoj Information Technology, the flexible pricing model of a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) like Azure Integration Services was a big selling point.

We evaluated top integration products, but they required a big initial expenditure. With a PaaS solution, US LBM could start small and grow over time as its needs evolved, and leadership liked the flexibility of that approach.” 

Ajay Dhingra, Founder and President, Khoj Information Technology

Worldwide support and reliability 

In today’s global business landscape, the ability to seamlessly operate across regions is crucial. That’s where Azure Integration Services steps in. It’s a hybrid, multi-cloud, globally managed offering accessible in over 50 Microsoft Azure regions. This means you can effortlessly connect your applications and systems across various geographical locations, all while upholding the performance and reliability standards that users demand. 

KPMG Netherlands, a Dutch professional services firm providing advisory and audit services, cites the valuable assistance they’ve gotten from Microsoft tech support during a recent platform integration project. Carel Nederveen, the Enterprise Technology Architect at KPMG Netherlands, commended the Microsoft team’s reliability.

We didn’t want to spend excessive time on research. If we couldn’t resolve an issue within a few hours, we’d seek assistance from the Microsoft team, a highly valuable and supportive resource.” 

Carel Nederveen, Enterprise Technology Architect, KPMG Netherlands

Robust partner ecosystem with over 1,400 managed partners worldwide 

Strong partnerships underpin thriving ecosystems. Teaming up with partners globally, we aim to drive and scale your integration efforts successfully. Notable successes include SPAR NL’s event-driven Azure platform and BÜCHI’s real-time data exchange, both achieved through strategic partnerships. With a shared commitment to innovation and customer-centricity, Microsoft and our certified partners are consistently leading the way in delivering groundbreaking integration solutions. 

Unlock the full potential of Azure    

Azure Integration Services goes beyond being a standalone solution—it seamlessly integrates with the broader Azure ecosystem. This means that you’re not only getting a powerful integration platform, but you’re also unlocking the full potential of Azure. Seamlessly integrating with other Azure offerings—such as Azure OpenAI Service, Azure analytics, and Azure IoT—empowers you to build holistic solutions that quickly drive innovation and efficiency across the entire organization.
