Today, Lokad has been announced as the Windows Azure Platform Partner of Year by Microsoft. This year, Lokad has been chosen among the nearly 3000 entrants worldwide for those awards.
This award recognizes Lokad for demonstrating innovation, competitive differentiation and customer value by using Windows Azure. The Microsoft Partner Awards recognize partners that have delivered exceptional Microsoft-based solutions over the last year.
The Lokad team is extremely proud of achieving this level of recognition. The last French company to get an equivalent award was Dassault Systèmes, the largest French software company and it was two years ago.
As outlined in our previous post, we have been working hard to really get the most of Windows Azure. We did not just port an existing technology toward the cloud, but we did re-design from scratch a cloud-native architecture.
Our ambition is to deliver the most accurate and most scalable forecasts of the market. Windows Azure has already demultiplied our efforts and the results we bring to our clients on a daily basis, but that's only the start. We firmly intend to keep up with the hard work to unleash all Windows Azure potential for the next generation of business analytics.
