RedPrairie , consumer-driven optimisation specialists, shared in one of the four keynote presentations at Microsoft’s Professional Developers Conference.
Shawn Davison, VP of E²e Platforms, highlighted many of the ways Azure Services Platform will positively impact information technology in the near future, particularly in the ways of cloud computing.
Davison demonstrated how the platform will enhance RedPrairie’s “One Button Recall” application, designed to completely streamline communication between partners over the internet.
According to Davison, the primary advantage of any cloud-based program is the immediate value it adds to a legacy system. Azure Services Platform leverages this technology, allowing secure interaction between applications across enterprises through Software as a Service (SaaS). This will allow companies like RedPrairie to easily connect their clients with any number of businesses using web services, providing seamless contact not only within an organisation, but outside of it – without the need for extensive, complicated, or dedicated circuitry.
Davison illustrated RedPrairie’s plans to use the Azure Services Platform in extending clients’ on-premise supply networks across the web. This will allow the company’s customers to recall distributed product with the touch of a button, without the need to manually provide access or instruction for individual carriers.
Eddie Amos, General Manager, World wide Partner Evangelism, Microsoft, said that RedPrairie’s demonstration in the keynote address with Bob Muglia is another example of their strong partnership with Microsoft to deliver the latest innovations and technical transformations to the customers.
