The Azure Integration Group formed when leading experts in the BizTalk to Azure migration space combined to provide their customers with a depth of knowledge in the field that is second to none.
Microsoft integration specialists Affinus and Data Platform and Integration specialists 345 Technology have joined forces to become the greatest resource and consultancy group dedicated to the challenge of migrating BizTalk estates to the Azure cloud.
Affinus was founded in 2007 by members of the original Microsoft BizTalk development team and has been designing and supporting complex BizTalk integrations ever since. When Microsoft launched Azure in 2008, Affinus became pioneers, collaborating with early product development, supporting the developer community, and consulting with organisations to establish their Azure cloud. Today they leverage their deep technical insight of these platforms to support complex migrations to Azure.
High performance software engineers 345 Technology specialise in super-scale, mission critical data IT projects. They recognise that the next technological revolution is being built on data – big data and AI. 345 help clients to develop their business around data and take advantage of these opportunities. 345 help with a whole range of complex, high-pressure problems using zeros and ones. They are a Microsoft Gold Partner.
Together, the combined teams from Affinus and 345 Technology form the single most significant dedicated resource focusing on BizTalk to Azure migration in the world.
