We believe that integration is an essential part of modern applications and all users should be empowered to use the integration platform to enable a composable enterprise. Azure Integration Services offers integration and automation experiences to the full spectrum of customer personas from citizen to professional developers, supporting a wide range of integration use cases. From Power Automate and its Windows-integrated RPA capabilities to Visual Studio and Visual Studio Code extensions, support for Azure DevOps, GitHub Actions, App Insights, and Azure Monitor, we provide an intuitive user experience to users on the platform of their choice.

Modern integration platform

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 multi-cloud or in the edge, or any combination of the above. Azure Arc enabled integration services offers customers better control to develop and deploy their integration solutions while providing the benefits of our iPaaS and the flexibility of hosting it anywhere.

Flexible pricing options

Azure Integration Services offers flexible pricing options to scale with the integration requirements as businesses grow, optimizing costs while automating business processes. Based on the business requirements, customers can opt-in for a multi-tenant environment with a pay-as-you-go pricing model, or single-tenant environment with a standard hosting plan or an integration service environment with fully isolated and dedicated environment. We recently announced 50 percent reduction for the prices for all subsequent units purchased after the first unit for the API Management Premium tier.

Strong customer momentum

With a global footprint of over 43,000 customers, Azure Integration Services has been at the forefront of helping customers increase business velocity and agility across different industries.

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 a modern integration platform spanning cloud and on-premises.
