Previewing Azure SDKs following new Azure SDK API Standards

Today we’re happy to share a new set of libraries for working with Azure Storage,  Azure Cosmos DB, Azure Key Vault, and Azure Event Hubs in Java, Python, JavaScript or TypeScript, and .NET. These libraries provide access to new service features, and represent the first step towards applying a new set of standards across the Azure SDKs that we believe will make the libraries easier to learn and integrate into your software. You can get these libraries today from your favorite package manager, and we would love to hear your feedback on GitHub . To get started follow the instructions linked below: Why are we doing this? Much like moving software from the client or on-premises to the cloud is a paradigm shift, we too have been going through a period of rapid innovation in Azure’s capabilities and learning about how best to expose it to developers. Now that some Azure...

Automating document creation and approvals with Teams and Microsoft Flow (Part One)

One of the most common scenarios for SharePoint Online andMicrosoft Flow is approvals. Having a formal workflow in place for documentreview, expenses approval and other similar day-to-day business processes is ubiquitousacross most organizations. In this three-part guide, we’ll go beyond simply approving documents and use the power of Microsoft Flow to automatically create documents based on pre-defined templates. We’ll keep our example pretty simple and contained so thatyou can build upon it – but the possibilities are nearly endless. MicrosoftTeams can take data from a multitude of systems meaning you could extract datafrom your CRM or other tools to initiate and create documents automatically. Our example scenario We’ll take a fairly common scenario that occurs in most businesses that work with customers – creating a sales or project proposal. In our scenario, we want to provide a form for people toenter relevant information for the new proposal. We then want a...

CGG speeds geoscience insights on Azure HPC

A leader in geosciences, CGG has been imaging the earth’s subsurface for more than 85 years. Their products and solutions help clients locate natural resources. When a customer asked whether the cloud could speed the creation of the high-resolution reservoir models that they needed, CGG turned to Azure high performance computing (HPC). CGG is a team of acknowledged imaging experts in the oil and gas industry. Their subsurface imaging centers are internationally acclaimed, and their researchers are regularly recognized with prestigious international awards for their outstanding technical contributions to the industry. CGG was an early innovator in seismic inversion, the technique of converting seismic survey reflection data into a quantitative description of the rock properties in an oil and gas reservoir. From this data, highly detailed models can be made, like the following image showing the classification of rock types in a 3D grid for an unconventional reservoir interval. These images...

Enable receipt understanding with Form Recognizer’s new capability

One of the newest members of the Azure AI portfolio, Form Recognizer , applies advanced machine learning to accurately extract text, key-value pairs, and tables from documents.

End-to-end CI/CD automation using Azure DevOps unified Yaml-defined Pipelines

Azure pipeline as a core part of Azure DevOps, it allows for the creation of CI ( Continuous Integration) pipeline in a declarative way using YAML documents, it is also called build pipelines. Since last Build 2019, this capability is also extending to CD ( Continuous Delivery ) Pipelines which is also known as Release Pipelines.  More than expected is now it is possible to define multi-stage pipelines-as-code for both Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery with the same YAML definition file.  Since Github can be easily integrated with Azure DevOps nowadays,  you can not only build your CI/CD pipeline based on your source code on Github, but also even Mapping your GitHub repository permissions with Azure DevOps. Solution Overview I am writing this blog to explain how to use Azure CI/CD pipelines to provide an end-to-end automation experience to users when deploying an node.js application via Azure DevOps. Our solution will...

Scale action groups and suppress notifications for Azure alerts

In Azure Monitor, defining what to monitor while configuring alerts can be challenging. Customers need to be capable of defining when actions and notifications should trigger for their alerts, and more importantly, when they shouldn’t. The action rules feature for Azure Monitor, available in preview, allows you to define actions for your alerts at scale, and allows you to suppress alerts for scenarios such as maintenance windows. Let’s take a closer look at how action rules (preview) can help you in your monitoring setup! Defining actions at scale Previously you could define what action groups trigger for your alerts while defining an alert rule. However, the actions that get triggered, whether it is an email that is sent or a ticket created in a ticketing tool, are usually associated with resource on which the alert is generated rather than the individual alert rule. For example, for all alerts generated on the...
