Introduction: Understanding the Basics
When the cloud started becoming a big thing almost a decade ago, organisations of all types and sizes were quick to jump on the bandwagon with their desire to remain at the cutting edge of innovation. As with any hasty and poorly executed technology strategy, the initial enthusiasm was often met with a multitude of problems, such as poor compatibility with existing systems, security and compliance issues and a lack of in-house expertise needed to get everything up and running smoothly.

Cloud computing has changed the way we store share and gather the information. Cloud computing is the concept of storing, managing and processing the huge amount of data over the internet rather than on a personal computer or local server. This has improved the speed of data exchange as cloud servers are more powerful and faster than the local servers. Artificial intelligence application is making the cloud computing smarter and faster. Machine learning algorithms can collect and analyze the huge amount of data and help in making decisions.

This chapter is a bit more theoretical but covers a premium service of Microsoft Azure platform that can be used for specific use cases that Azure Web Apps may not be able to handle effectively. Other than that, it is important to know why we are covering Azure Web Apps and App Service Environment. The reason behind that is it is equally important to have environment ready for package deployment. When we consider it in the context of Java, we need to deploy WAR file in different environment. Here, we are dealing with Platform as a Service so we need not to worry about installing runtime environment else we also need to find ways to automate it.

In the last chapter, we covered details on Visual Studio Team Services (VSTS). In this chapter, we will see how to utilize VSTS for Continuous Integration. We will use sample spring application available on the GitHub and try to integrate it with VSTS.
We have already seen in the Chapter 2 how to use Team Foundation Version Control; in this chapter, we will also see how to create a project where code is managed in Git.

In this chapter, we will introduces the Visual Studio Team Services and sample application structure that is necessary to understand before automating process of building and deploying application in desired environment. We will cover basics of agile process framework supported in the VSTS. This chapter also explains how to use VSTS to manage Code and integrate VSTS with Eclipse IDE so check in process can be managed directly from IDE.
