ike the rest of the industry, the movers and shakers of the cloud ecosystem turned their attention to the Microsoft Build summit last week, which saw the software powerhouse introduce a host of new features for its infrastructure-as-a-service platform. The release was headlined by a managed code execution tool that provides the ability to have a pre-defined action automatically carried out when a certain piece of data is received or some other important event occurs in an deployment. Azure Functions, as a service is called, made its debut alongside new monitoring functionality designed to ease the task of spotting performance issues in a large Azure environment. Administrators can now see how long it takes an application to serve requests in real-time and immediately distinguish traffic that exceeds the median processing time. As a result, the IT department doesn’t have to be notified by users when their organization’s cloud deployment starts acting up, which streamlines the troubleshooting process.

Article | February 28, 2020

Think of a time, when you have used a map to find a café for your family dinner. Or perhaps, you used it to look for a newly opened fashion store in your neighborhood.

I have never been more energized by the growth of these location technologies having an impact on our daily lives, the way we work and interact.
