Executive Summary

sharpcloud was founded on a revolutionary idea: to enhance strategy development efforts by using the interactive and collaborative tools familiar to people who use social networking sites. But turning that idea into a real service for corporate users required a global series of data centers - far beyond sharpcloud's reach. By taking advantage of Microsoft partner programs and familiar Microsoft technology, sharpcloud developed and now hosts its solution on the Windows Azure platform. The company estimates that it is 200 to 300 percent more productive than it would have been on a competitive platform, saving up to U.S.$500,000 annually.
