A day after announcing a partnership with Amazon for cross-device integration for its voice assistant technologies (Alexa and Cortana), Microsoft has announced that it is releasing Web Services tools for Microsoft Visual Studio Team Services cloud service.

Microsoft’s hope is that by providing integration services, more developers will choose its own web service with which to produce tools.
Despite a strong narrative, according to the end of last month Microsoft still only owns about 11% of the cloud services market. Amazon still leads the category by 34%, while Google remains at 5%.
These tools will be covered at IT/Dev Connections 2017 in October, along with educational content on AWS and Azure.
