Advantages of using Logic Apps

One of the most important requirements in the enterprise world is to integrate different systems that can be both on-premises and cloud-based (also in different cloud providers).

In this scenario, Logic Apps provide a great variety of connectors that can integrate with different systems, and, therefore, they are a powerful tool to achieve the target.
