At PDC'09, Microsoft and Lokad unveiled a case study about Windows Azure. Yet, what was our surprise when discovered the following video at the Windows Azure booth (check for video links below).
Once upon a time, there was a little company with little funds, but great ambitions.
The little company wanted to process truckload of historical data. Yet, it could not afford buying tons of computing stuff.
Yet, through Windows Azure, the little company was suddently able to process truckload of data, and to output truckload of forecasts too.
The massive amount of forecasts would then flow into the IT systems of large retailers to optimize their companies.
The little company produced lots of profits, and its employees lived happily ever after. THE END
