Roadmap for the Azure portal.

Azure Cloud Shell, a new Azure Portal feature, simplifies command-line tool usage, and Azure Portal App, ease Azure monitoring on Android and iOS devices

The Azure Portal App, in preview, provides Azure monitoring and management tools using native Android and iOS device user interfaces

The latest Web-based Azure portal uses a new visual design

Previews of administrative technologies for the Microsoft-hosted Enterprise Mobility + Security suite of services show a direction toward using the Azure portal and the Microsoft Graph API

An ambitious new Azure Portal is more solution-centric than the previous portal, which may be retired soon
