"Azure was the logical choice for us, given how it's already integrated with the Bot Framework, and we could also take advantage of services for free telemetry monitoring. Plus, with platform as a service, our infrastructure will automatically scale up and out, globally, to accommodate any increase in future volumes—and we don't have to over-provision."
