Automate your processes and optimize operations
Azure Logic Apps is a cloud-based Platform as a Service. It allows you to connect your organization’s apps and services, develop and run automated workflows in the cloud, and automate existing workflows.
Logic Apps’ simple user interface doesn’t require coding and is a fully managed service. Meaning, you do not have to worry about scaling, monitoring, hosting, or managing your solutions. Azure’s flexible structure is designed to expand your integration possibilities across cloud, hybrid and on-premises items.
To alleviate you from reinventing the wheel, Logic Apps comes with hundreds of pre-built templates to help you simplify your workflow creation even further. Like other Azure services, Logic Apps operates on a pay-as-you-go model without upfront costs.
Building better with Azure Logic Apps
Schedule and send email notifications using Office 365 when a specific event happens, for example, a new file is uploaded
Route and process customer orders across on-premises systems and cloud services
Move uploaded files from an SFTP or FTP server to Azure Storage
Use prebuilt Microsoft-managed API connectors and built-in operations so you can connect and integrate apps, data, services, and systems more easily and quickly
No code required, though Logic Apps does support services to customize code
Create Azure Resource Manager templates to set up and automate deployments across multiple environments
Supported by extensive Microsoft Azure library of services
Create and edit workflows with easy-to-use tools
Simplify complex processes by using the visual design tools in Azure Logic Apps. Create workflows from start to finish with the workflow designer, Visual Studio Code, or Visual Studio. Save time on your operations with these easy to use visual tools.
Even for multi-tenant based logic apps you can create workflows. You can do so by accessing the sizable templates gallery. Helping you set up common workflow patterns, ranging from simple connectivity for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) apps to advanced B2B solutions.
Connect different systems across multiple environments
Some patterns and processes are easy to describe but hard to implement in code. Azure Logic Apps helps you seamlessly connect disparate systems across cloud, on-premises, and hybrid environments. For example, you can connect a cloud marketing solution to an on-premises billing system, or centralize messaging across APIs and systems using Azure Service Bus. Azure Logic Apps provides you with a fast, reliable, and consistent way to deliver reusable and reconfigurable solutions.
First-class support for enterprise integration and B2B scenarios
Businesses and organizations digitally communicate by using industry-standard – but often different – message protocols and formats, such as EDIFACT, AS2, X12, and RosettaNet. By using the Azure Logic Apps enterprise integration capabilities, you can transform message formats of third-party entities into formats that your systems can interpret and process. Azure Logic Apps handles these exchanges smoothly and securely with encryption and digital signatures.
The Azure Logic Apps platform helps you implement and scale up to more mature integration scenarios by providing these capabilities and more:
- Integrate and build off Microsoft BizTalk Server, Azure Service Bus, Azure Functions, Azure API Management, and more.
- Exchange messages using EDIFACT, AS2, X12, and RosettaNet protocols.
- Process XML messages and flat files.
- Create an integration account to store and manage B2B artifacts, such as trading partners, agreements, transform maps, validation schemas, and more.
Access resources inside Azure virtual networks
Logic app workflows can access secured resources, such as virtual machines (VMs) and other systems or services, that are inside an Azure virtual network when you create an integration service environment (ISE). An ISE is a dedicated instance of the Azure Logic Apps service that uses dedicated resources and runs separately from the global multi-tenant Azure Logic Apps service.
Running logic apps in your own dedicated instance helps reduce the impact that other Azure tenants might have on app performance. An ISE also provides these benefits:
- Your own static IP addresses, separate from the addresses shared in the multi-tenant service.
- Set up a single public, static, and predictable outbound IP address to communicate with destination systems.
- Increase limits on run duration, storage retention, throughput, HTTP request and response timeouts, message sizes, and custom connector requests.
- When you create an ISE, Azure injects or deploys that ISE into your Azure virtual network. You can then use this ISE as the location for the logic apps and integration accounts that need access.
