Earlier this week I meet up with the founders of Sharpcloud, a start-up and member of the Microsoft BizSpark program, to find out how they build their newly launched Sharpcloud application, which is a visual, social and analytical environment that allows users to discuss and view information to help their strategic planning. The user interface is very rich, very dynamic, and is based on Silverlight, whilst all the backend processing and storage runs on Windows Azure. Watch the video to find out why they chose Azure and Silverlight, and how they have architected their solution:
