Venue search platform Eventopedia has announced, 24 January, that it has officially moved onto Microsoft’s Azure cloud services platform.
The new platform uses ‘serverless’ microservices to manage the build of Eventopedia’s always on, end-to-end API functions. The move also means that Eventopedia is now fully mobile ready and is able to integrate with third-party systems using the open architecture in Microsoft’s secure cloud environment.
Eventopedia is one of the first technology start-ups globally to use Azure Functions.
By moving to Azure cloud based technology, Eventopedia says it will also gain support for its own next generation native mobile apps built-in, and the highest levels of data security as standard.
Eventopedia CEO, Toby Heelis, says: “This product development positions Eventopedia for rapid growth owing to the easy integration, via our API, to leading business and hospitality platforms. This technology has allowed us to gain significant traction with multinational corporations, event agencies and global hotel chains. This fits with our long-term business strategy to create firm-wide efficiencies and dramatically reduce the daily workload of all event planners.”
