Based in the United Kingdom (U.K.), Hogg Robinson provides corporate travel booking services to customers worldwide. To deliver its services, Hogg Robinson integrates systems and data from third-party suppliers, customer business systems, and in-house software, using Microsoft BizTalk Server 2010 Enterprise. Hogg Robinson wanted to extend its core travel platform to work seamlessly on mobile devices. It created a mobile version of its application using Windows Azure - including Cloud Services, Service Bus, and SQL Database - to deliver travel information and booking services to mobile users. The company has already saved up to 80 per cent in start-up costs and improved the development team's productivity by 25 per cent with Windows Azure.
