Aidmatrix Deploys Microsoft's Windows Azure Platform

Aidmatrix recently deployed our first production solution on Microsoft's Windows Azure platform. This is very exciting as we have been researching, prototyping, and planning out how we would leverage Azure for a couple of years. This solution is an integration between two different modules in our supply chain management (SCM) solution set. It enables transactions to be shared in near real-time between the two modules. We selected Windows Azure (and in particular SQL Azure) to provide this integration as it answered the question as to how to simply integrate a 100% SaaS SCM Module and a second module which can be delivered both via SaaS and/or installed locally on a PC that synchronizes periodically. When run locally on a PC, the module enables the user to work without Internet connectivity and then synchronize their data back to the SaaS implementation when there is Internet connectivity (this was recently used in Haiti and is next up to be implemented in Zimbabwe). Congrats to the Aidmatrix team and thanks to all the Microsoft folks who volunteered their expertise to help us make this happen.
