Microsoft’s Hybrid Integration Platform, which includes BizTalk Server, Azure Logic Apps, Azure API Management and Azure Service Bus, enables businesses in their digital transformation journey. You can now seamlessly connect applications, data and business processes across on-premises and the cloud using the hybrid integration platform.

During the MVP Global Summit 2016, and taking the opportunity of having most of the Integration MVPs gathered at the event, Microsoft Pro Integration team invited them to create short videos (10 minutes webcasts) at Microsoft Building 20, building that is the home of the “famous” Channel 9 studio, about Hybrid Integration, and our coworker Sandro Pereira was one of them. The result is this 8 minutes video on “Empowering Hybrid Integration” where you will learn how you can create powerful hybrid integration solutions using existing on-premises and cloud based solutions.
