Where does Windows Azure folks get their inspiration?

Published on by Joannes Vermorel.

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.

Data Analytics with Windows Azure

The little company wanted to process truckload of historical data. Yet, it could not afford buying tons of computing stuff.

Import and export data in Windows Azure

Yet, through Windows Azure, the little company was suddently able to process truckload of data, and to output truckload of forecasts too. 

Feed IT systems with Windows Azure

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

Published on by Joannes Vermorel.

Reduced first page of the Microsoft case study on Lokad Forecasting has been available as a rationalized business practice for more than a century. Yet, we believe that we when it comes to scalable forecasting, Lokad is one of a kind. We invested a lot of efforts to scale Lokad up during 2009 to address the needs of our largest customers. In particular, we have migrated our technology toward Windows Azure, the cloud computing plateform of Microsoft.

Today, we are at PDC'09, and we are pleased to announce the release of a case study produced by Microsoft about our scalable forecasting technology. Special thanks to the Azure marketing team.
