Microsoft Azure is cost effective with per-use pricing that scales as we move through the various development stages of your project to final deployment and go live. Developing in Azure removes the expense and resource required to set-up and maintain on premises servers and other IT infrastructure. Computer and storage resources can be scaled and accessed, on demand, in real time.

Azure allows us to work with the widest range of development tools, languages and frameworks.  Developing solutions that leverage the core Azure services allows applications to be developed efficiently.  Once in production, applications can be managed and monitored easily using Azure’s comprehensive reporting tools.

Applications running on Azure have true global reach.  Azure’s infrastructure reduces cost, time and complexity of operating a global network whilst allowing applications to meet local data residency requirements.

Microsoft Azure development services from aento

The focus of our Microsoft Azure development services is to use Microsoft Azure as a platform to deliver scalable, high performance, innovative software applications for our customers in the following areas.


We develop corporate grade web sites with global reach using scalable resources such as Azure App Service and Azure Content Delivery Network.  Websites can be based on popular content management systems hosted using Azure SQL database, Azure database for MYSQL or Azure database for MariaDB.

Web Apps

Using Azure infrastructure components such as Azure Active Directory, Azure Functions, Azure Logic Apps, Azure Event Grid and Azure Service Bus, highly functional line of business web applications can be used serve employees, customers and partners globally. Web apps canbe used to securely gather and visualise data and integrate with or deliver business processes.

Mobile Apps

We develop cross-platform and native apps for any mobile device using Xamarin and Azure.  Mobile apps can easily be scaled to serve a growing customer base across multiple geographic regions. Single sign-on user authentication enables users to authenticate using Azure Active Directory, Facebook, Google, Microsoft Account and Twitter identity providers.  Azure Notification Hubs allow apps to broadcast personalised push notifications to millions of users.  Azure storage provides an infinitely scalable app resource storage.

Why aento?

At aento we have been developing complex applications and working with Microsoft technologies for over 12 years.  Our Microsoft Azure development services offer technical capabilities that cover every aspect of design, configuration and development of Line of Business and Enterprise applications.
