2. Flexible and scalable

Azure Logic Apps is a cloud-based, serverless computing service. This means it automatically scales and adapts to meet the needs of the business. Traditional enterprise integration usually involves plenty of worry about hosting, monitoring, and scaling, but Azure Logic Apps takes care of all of these separate worries in a single managed service.

3. Connects to anything

You can use Azure Logic Apps to integrate almost any business systems, including: websites, mobile apps, backends, APIs, and processes. Azure Logic Apps is equipped with more than 100 different connectors — like Salesforce, Office 365, Twitter, Dropbox, and Google services.

With Azure’s on-premises data gateway, you can quickly and securely connect on-premises software to the cloud. Organisations can also use Azure Logic Apps to exchange electronic messages with business partners using industry-standard protocols and formats.

4. Easy to use

Microsoft Azure Portal is an easy-to-use development tool, accessed within your standard web browser. You can build automated business processes and system integrations with minimal coding using the hundreds of pre-built connectors — Azure generates the code in the background.

After deployment, Azure Logic Apps lays out your workflows in an easy-to-read format. Thanks to the visual format, the logic can also be handily reused for other workflows. Despite requiring very little coding, Logic Apps does let you customise the code of any workflow in Visual Studio.

Logic Apps additionally provides ready-made templates that help you create workflows even faster. For example, you can implement a personal productivity template which sets organisational daily reminders, turns critical work items into to-do lists, and automates tasks down to single user-approved steps.
