Azure SQL Database External REST Endpoints Integration is a long-awaited capability. Though currently it has only been released to an early adoption program, it is worth taking a look at.
This integration massively reduces difficulties in integrating Azure services with Azure SQL Database. As with only one line of code, Azure SQL database can integrate with a wealth of services. Such as Azure Functions, Cognitive Services, Event Hubs, Azure containers and so much more.
