Here are a few important aspects that make Azure an effective platform for building smart applications:
Smart Interactions: Comprehensive user experience capability
Modernized, highly intuitive and easy-to-use user interface with internationalization in compliance to customer branding guidelines can be developed very quickly using Azure Web Apps and Xamarian Mobile Apps. Office 365 channels like email, skype, yammer can be used to interact with the cognitive services. Hololens, integrating digital information with user's environment in real time, can be leveraged to create interactive experience of a real world environment through augmented reality/ virtual reality.
Azure Bot Service provides modular and extensible framework to create bots that provide speech, language understanding, question and answer, and more. LUIS, which is a machine learning-based service, can help build customized natural interactions into apps, bots, and IoT devices, which are enterprise-ready, custom models that continuously improve.
Smart Processes: Scalable yet easy to build business services
Azure Service Fabric provides the required scalability to support unpredictable traffic surge while ensuring availability and security.
Service Bus and Logic Apps can be used to ingest data and provide the required integration capabilities to connect to different systems. Where the capability does not exist within a logic app, Azure functions can be developed and called from the logic app. This is an infrastructure independent component allowing commonly used components to be abstracted as a re-usable function.
Serverless, reactive architectures can be leveraged for custom topics or webhooks and Event Grid.
Smart Platforms: Democratized cognitive services capability
- Azure Machine Learning will enable Fraud Risk Analysis
- Azure Cognitive Services will include Artificial Intelligence into apps, websites, and bots so that they communicate through natural ways of interaction like speech etc.
- Microsoft Bot Framework will create a conversational mortgage assistant.
- Cosmos DB will store data
Smart Security: Azure Active Directory and Face Recognition API will enforce security
Azure provides the right platform, scale, tools and services to build the next generation of applications—AI powered intelligent, smart applications in a cost-effective way.
