What is Azure Integration Services?
Azure Integration Services is a reliable, scalable platform for integrating on-premise and cloud-based applications, data and processes across your organisation. It brings together Azure Services such as API Management, Logic Apps, Service Bus and Event Grid.
Microsoft Azure Integration Services brings together cloud services for integration
To integrate applications, it is often necessary to connect different systems, which can be a complex exercise. In Azure Integration Services, the various components (API Management, Logic Apps, Service Bus and Event Grid) work together to provide a complete solution for the integration of cloud applications and on-premise applications.
The four core technologies within Azure Integration Services are:
- API Management: to publish and manage application programming interfaces (APIs). This API service makes software services accessible to other software, regardless of whether these services run in the cloud or on-premise.
- Logic Apps: To create and run integration logic. Think of implementing a business process that depends on several applications, all of which can be accessed via APIs.
- Service Bus: To allow applications and integration technologies to communicate through messaging in a loosely coupled way. This service provides queues that hold messages until they can be picked up by the recipient. This allows applications and integration software to communicate asynchronously, even across different technology platforms, which is often needed in integration scenarios.
- Event grid: supports communication via events. For example, instead of polling a queue in a messaging service, it is sometimes easier and more efficient to signal changes using an event.
