The business value of Microsoft Azure Logic Apps

I’ve written a paper on the business value of Microsoft Azure Logic Apps for Integration. Mainly useful for CIO’s and IT managers considering Azure PaaS services for their Integration needs.

It describes the components of Microsoft Azure, and then drills down into aPaaS and iPaaS to position Logic Apps, API Apps and API Management. Furthermore it describes common integration needs in complex application landscapes such as keeping data in sync, creating composite apps, involving supply and demand chains and integrating apps and portals.

Next it describes the real business value, so that you can explain it to your business stakeholders as well. This includes creating value add on top of commodity SaaS apps, leveraging investments in legacy applications (your Systems of Record), decreasing time-to-market, channel renewal, agility: basically digital transformation using Gartner’s┬ápace-layer application model.

Lastly it describes the different integration themes that Logic Apps can help you with.

Enjoy!
