Microsoft: R3 on Azure: Strengthening our partnership
Blockchain is increasingly prevalent as a topic of interest in our conversations with business leaders. A growing number of our customers and partners are experimenting with the technology as a secure and transparent way to digitally track ownership of assets, and are partnering with Microsoft to build a new class of distributed applications on Azure.
