Title: Azure Functions in the Real World

This session is an in depth look at the use of Azure Functions to integrate internal corporate systems with a new high volume large scale eCommerce system. Dozens of Azure Functions are used as microservices to coordinate incoming product catalog data, outgoing order data, and exports to external partners with a Sitecore Commerce based website. We’ll take a look at lessons learned developing, deploying and integrating Azure Functions as well as serverless computing, microservices, and function orchestration. The focus is sharing experiences to help you figure out how to successfully leverage the power of Azure Functions on your project.
