Narato and Microsoft Azure

Recently, Narato became a Microsoft Identity Partner. As one of the first companies in Belgium, we are planning big things with Azure B2C for a project for the Flemish government. Mike Martin already came to Narato Academy to talk about Microsoft Azure. When we got the chance to go to Seattle to learn more about Azure, we didn’t hesitate.


Conference in Seattle

In September, a couple of people from Narato boarded a plane to Seattle to attend the Microsoft Identity Partner Conference. The weather was nice, places like Pike Place Market and the Space Needle immediately sparked our interest, but before we could relax and take a closer look at this interesting city we were expected at the Bellevue. In this venue hundreds of Identity core developers gathered here to learn more about the newest additions to the Microsoft Azure family: Azure B2C (Business to Consumer) and Azure B2B (Business to Business). Since Narato is currently working on a project that will make use of Azure B2C, we were very interested in learning everything we could. Azure B2C will provide easy access management and client-centred identity.

We had a chance to talk with visitors from all over the world to share our knowledge. We expanded our international network and listened to very interesting cases that had already used the technology. This conference offered us a lot of information that hasn’t even been documented yet. With all this extra knowledge, we can immediately get to work for our project. We’ll be pioneers in this job, since we are one of the first Belgian companies to work with Microsoft Azure B2C.


Narato Academy

As we believe in sharing knowledge, our story doesn’t end in Seattle. Since we couldn’t take everybody with us, we are planning an extra evening with Narato Academy to talk about what we have learned in Seattle. Even colleagues that will not be working on this project will have the opportunity to learn about these new developments. We are very excited to see where Microsoft Azure will bring us and we’ll keep you posted about the progress we will make in our project for the Flemish government.
