Azure Integration Services

Transparity, as an AIS practice, design, develop, deliver and support enterprise integration solutions and provide expertise on all aspects of Azure Integration Services.

Azure Integration Services is a collection of Azure services. Here we take a look in more detail at the core components.

Azure Logic Apps

Logic Apps allows you to create workflows and coordinate business processes. It provides connections to hundreds of services both in the cloud and on-premises. Azure Logic Apps is built on a containerised runtime and can be deployed and run from anywhere.

Service Bus

Use Service Bus to connect both on-premises and cloud-based apps and services for messaging workflows. Service Bus can send messages to multiple back-end systems, talk to Java Message Service and scale out ordered messaging to multiple readers, among other features.

API Management

For secure publishing of your APIs for internal and external developers when working with back-end systems hosted on-premise or in the cloud. It modernises and simplifies work across hybrid and multi-cloud environments by providing one place to manage APIs.

Event Grid

Event Grid connects third-party and Azure services for a fully managed event-routing service. Event Grid uses a simple publish-to-subscribe model for your event-based apps and is developed for high availability, scalability and consistent performance.

How Our AIS Developers Can Help

We provide expert help to determine the best approach to design, develop and support your Enterprise Application Integration using the most suitable services in Azure Integration Services.

Azure Integration Services is not a new Azure service but instead is a collection of other Azure services. This makes a lot of sense as why try and produce a new service that contains functionality that already exists in other services? Instead, Microsoft just adds new functionality where needed and takes advantage of the whole of Azure for everything else.

The core components of Azure Integration Services are detailed in the Microsoft product list. Transparity AIS developers are experts with these tools:

  • Logic Apps: Provides data connection and orchestration features
  • Service Bus: Secure message queuing service
  • API Management: Provides secure control and throttling features for APIs
  • Event Grid: Event routing system
  • Azure Functions: Platform to solve complex orchestration problems
  • Azure Data Factory: Fully managed, hybrid data integration service

Plus, you can use any other Azure service that you wish such as SQL Azure, Azure Tables, CosmosDB, Blob Storage and much more.

In addition, because Azure Integration Services is built on Azure using Azure services, the system is:

  • Fully managed by Microsoft and so the level of system administrator support is minimal, with no need to patch or backup
  • New code releases can be automatedly deployed using the release pipeline features built into Azure DevOps
  • New deployments can be completely managed using Azure Resource Manager (ARM) templates, which can automate the setup of all the Azure Services

Reduce Integration Overhead with AIS Development

Azure Integration Services offers a greatly reduced administration overhead compared with BizTalk and other systems.

Azure Integration Services is a great step forward and a world-class cloud-based system for integrating systems in the cloud and on-premises.

When used in combination with the Transparity Data Integration Hub Framework, even the most complex enterprise data integrations can be created easily and risk-free.

All using a tried and tested architecture and components based on Azure Integration Services backed up with fully automated deployments and monitoring.

If you have existing BizTalk Server systems that require support, modernisation, consultancy or development, our engineers are on hand to help you with them.

We have been BizTalk development experts for many years and though now most systems are being migrated to Azure Integration Services, our in-depth knowledge of BizTalk Server integration solutions for all ERP, CRM, EDI, Salesforce, databases and custom applications is available.

App Innovation Customer Stories

The availability and performance of a large and complex healthcare management system is the foundation for 'end user service levels. CHT moved their development and support to Transparity at the beginning of the year and improved results have been immediate.

As AppCan’s client base expands, some users required specific functionality. In this case, AppCan was approached by an existing client – a large gas services company – looking for a development partner as it had won the delivery lead framework contract bid for London.

Cornerstone was in the process of implementing an IT system that would manage their entire estate (circa 21,000 sites). This system needed to contain all details of the estate and ensure a greater level of automation could be achieved between Cornerstone, its customers and suppliers.
