Heinrich & Reuter Solutions GmbH, aka HeiReS, offers design and development services mostly in Microsoft technologies. It also offers training and consulting around these subjects. HeiReS creates and publishes apps for customers and their products in a variety of subjects.
The business focus and main competences of HeiReS are based on Microsoft platforms and technologies, so choosing Azure as the data source for the Welcome App geared toward refugees and migrants in Germany was an easy decision. The app uses the Microsoft Azure SQL Database as well as App Services. HeiReS chose this combination to establish a stable communication between the CMS and the app without requiring an on-premises server.
Achim Dettweiler, director of Microsoft Visual Studio Product Marketing, said, "Knowing from my own experience how hard integration into a new country can be, I really love what HeiReS has created. The Welcome App Germany project, using Visual Studio for cross-platform development and Microsoft Azure for the cloud backend, provides extremely helpful information for both migrants and helpers. I can't wait to see how they will evolve the app."
