Microsoft Azure Blockchain Cloud Workbench Service is Doing Big Data in a Big Way
September 03, 2018 / bitcoinexchangeguide
More than three years ago, one of the first companies to bring blockchain technology to the cloud was Microsoft Azure, and that would prove to be just a taste of what's to come. Now, it seems like Microsoft has the intention of connecting this technology to just about everything else in their product line. Steadily, and over time, the international software behemoth has been quietly building bridges and connections between its various blockchain services and other, more widely used and known infrastructure and platforms. These include the likes of Office 365 Outlook, SharePoint Online, Salesforce, Dynamics 365 CRM Online, SAP, and even Twitter. According to the general manager of Microsoft Azure, Matt Kerner, the underlying idea is to allow Microsoft Consumers to port their data from any of these platforms onto the cloud, and from there, onto a blockchain that will be linked to all of them.
