XYO and Microsoft Partner to Offer Clients with Blockchain GeoSpatial Apps on Azure’s Marketplace
When it comes to technological innovation, not a lot of companies can rival what Microsoft has done over the course of the past few decades. The firm has not only withstood the pressures of time, but with its Windows OS ( operating system) has also become part of mainstream culture in an undeniable way.
With that out there, as per an all-new post released by geospatial-tech firm XYO, Microsoft has for the first time in its history decided to embrace decentralization by teaming up with XYO and creating a new suite of products on its Azure platform.
At this point in the article, it is worth noting that Azure is a cloud computing framework that has previously been used by a number of big-name digital entities such as:
- Virgin Atlantic
- Daimler AG

As part of this latest deal, XYO and Microsoft will work together to help create a host of “push-button geospatial blockchain apps” that can be accessed by clients via the Azure ecosystem. What’s more is that these new apps will be decentralized and make use of innovative blockchain solutions such as ‘smart contracts’
In rounding off this piece, it should be remembered that XYO has previously worked with other tech-giants such as Accenture and Consensys on a number of different projects. It now remains to be seen how this latest partnership fares in the future and whether it is able to help Microsoft gain a better foothold within today’s burgeoning blockchain ecosystem.
