The giant Microsoft has announced about releasing its Azure Blockchain Workbench on Monday, 7th May 2018. The platform aims to support developers and give them the ability to easily work with DL technology.
The Azure Blockchain Workbench offers the “scaffolding for an end-to-end blockchain application” that can be implemented in a few simple steps, according to the statement. In other words, Microsoft plans to provide a basic support for both its own company and external parties to design as many projects as possible using the Azure platform.
“Today, we’re excited to announce the public preview release of Azure Blockchain Workbench, a new offering that can reduce application development time from months to days,” according to Matthew Kerner’s blog post.
“Workbench gets customers started quickly by automating infrastructure setup, so developers can focus on application logic, and business owners can focus on defining and validating their use cases,” he added.
The Azure Blockchain Workbench has already been tested by several companies, such as Bank Hapoalim from Israel, Nestle, and Apttus.
In recent months, Microsoft has joined several projects based on blockchain technology, Azure platform being the latest and probably the most promising one. Among the technological giant’s partners which are involved in blockchain activities, we find Hyperledger, R3, Cornell University’s Blockchain Research Group, and others.
