US tech giant Microsoft has teamed up with traffic, navigation and mapping products company TomTom to bring enterprise-grade location-based services to Microsofts Azure Cloud platform.

TomTom plans to integrate its services into Azure to make it even easier and more flexible for developers to build and manage enterprise, mobile, web and internet of things (IoT) applications that are location aware.

"Making TomTom's services available through the Microsoft Azure Cloud platform will allow developers and our customers to make location a core part of their Cloud-based applications," said Peggy Johnson, EVP of Business Development, Microsoft, in a statement.

"Teaming up with Microsoft will bring our technology to a much broader developer community on a platform they are already familiar with," added Harold Goddijn, CEO, TomTom.
