Furthermore, Azure Sentinel also provides APIs
for integrating different types of applications to connect with Azure Sentinel
data and insights. Here are few examples of end-to-end solutions that
unlocks the potential of Azure Sentinel and drives enterprise value.

 You can discover more examples by reviewing content and solutions in
the Azure
Sentinel GitHub repo
