We are thrilled to share that Microsoft has been named a Leader in the Forrester Wave for Enterprise Integration-Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS), 2021. Azure Integration Services consisting of Logic Apps, API Management, Event Grid, and Service Bus helps customers connect applications, data, and services on-premises and in the cloud, helping enterprises create new revenue opportunities with an API-driven partner and developer ecosystem and boost productivity with secure and automated workflows. Forrester credits Microsoft for providing a high-end developer experience to every kind of organization, from large enterprises to smaller ones, supporting varying integration requirements with flexible pricing options.
Our vision is to empower all kinds of organizations and users, from citizens to professional developers, to use Azure Integration Services to enable a composable enterprise. We believe that integration is an essential part of modern applications and should be available and accessible to all kinds of users; citizens to professional developers. We reach out to developers at the platform of their choice with Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code extensions, support for Azure DevOps, GitHub Actions, Application Insights, and Azure Monitor, offering an intuitive user experience and increasing developer productivity. With Power Automate and its Windows-integrated robotic process automation (RPA) capabilities, we enable citizen developers to leverage integration without writing code. In addition to that, more than 450 out-of-the-box connectors such as Microsoft 365, Dynamics 365, Salesforce, SAP, and Twitter, help customers connect data, events, and resources across applications, and systems, fast and easy, without writing any code.
With the ability to run Azure’s application services on Kubernetes or any cloud through Azure Arc, Azure Integration Services enables customers to create, deploy, and manage integrations wherever they make the most sense to run, in on-premises data centers, or Azure and multicloud, or in the edge, or any combination of the above. Azure Arc enabled integration services offer customers better control to develop and deploy their integration solutions while providing the benefits of our iPaaS and the flexibility of hosting it anywhere.
Azure Integration Services has a vast and global customer base with more than 43,000 customers using our integration services to connect applications, systems, and services. Learn how customers use Azure Logic Apps and Azure API Management to connect business applications, data, and processes to digitally transform their businesses. We also have a vast partner network across all geographies to help enterprises modernize existing on-premises integration solutions, such as Microsoft BizTalk Server, or build modern integration platforms spanning cloud and on-premises.
