One of the major goals of Azure Functions is to make the developers focus on just developing the application requirements and logic and abstract everything else.

As a developer or business user, you cannot afford to invent and develop your own applications from scratch for each of your business needs. You would first need to research about the existing systems and see if they fit for your business requirement. Many times, it would not be easy to understand the APIs of the other systems and integrate them as someone else has developed those APIs.

Azure provides many connectors that you could leverage to integrate your business applications with other systems pretty easily.

In this chapter we will learn how easy is to integrate different services that are available in Azure ecosystem.
