You can connect apps, data, and devices anywhere — on-premises or in the cloud — with Microsoft large ecosystem of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and cloud-based connectors that includes Salesforce, Office 365, Twitter, Dropbox, Google services, and more. It’s never been easier to keep your disparate systems up-to-date, in real-time. Connect and integrate data from the cloud to on-premises. Logic Apps gives you a robust set of capabilities that make it easier to unlock data from behind the firewall, securely connect to cloud-based services, and take advantage of rich integration without having to migrate away from the on-premises systems you’re already invested in. Unleash the power of Azure services like Machine Learning and Cognitive Services.

Microsoft Azure Cloud Platform Hybrid Integration Service Bus

Simplify enterprise cloud messaging. Depend on Azure Service Bus when you need highly-reliable cloud messaging service between applications and services, even when one or more is offline. This fully-managed service eliminates the burdens of server management and licensing. Asynchronous operations give you flexible, brokered messaging between client and server, along with structured First-In, First-Out (FIFO) messaging, and publish/subscribe capabilities — excellent for tasks like order processing. Build scalable cloud solutions. Asynchronous messaging patterns are the cornerstone of durable applications. Integrate cloud resources such as Azure SQL Database, Azure Storage, and Web Apps, with Microsoft Service Bus messaging to get smooth operation under variable loads, and the durability to survive intermittent failures. Enable highly secure communication across hybrid cloud solutions. Access existing assets — wherever they are — without complex firewall, network, or VPN configuration. These services provide you with enhanced authentication and connectivity through the cloud, and the ability to see and monitor activity.
