London, Dec 16 (IANS) 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.

“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.
