Microsoft, making bots safe in the cloud

Traders are installed bots, ready to run the graph.  They need some minimal framework tro be installed and set up.  Good work, Microsoft. So, the plan is simplified, make trading pit work in Azure first, since Microsoft is paying attention.

  Microsoft execs read my blog, they get what is going on. 
Venture Beat: Microsoft launched its Azure Bot Services today to give bot creators the option to move their bots into the cloud and let Microsoft handle server and storage issues, the company announced today.
Alexa Web Service is cloud-based, but until today, none of the big three cloud providers — Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services, and Google Cloud Platform — have provided a solution for developers to create bots in the cloud.
The service was created, wrote Microsoft FUSE Labs general manager Lili Cheng in a blog post today, to “give you the operational agility to run and handle scale as your bots grow in popularity and you only pay for what you use. Moreover, you also don’t need to worry about provisioning or managing servers that run your bots. Patching and infrastructure maintenance is handled for you — you focus on writing code.”
The Microsoft Bot Framework can make bots that operate on more than half a dozen platforms including Skype, Microsoft Teams, Facebook Messenger, and Kik.
