Why Did I?" Series: Building the CorpSystem Sales Tax Office Application Using Windows Azure
The speaker of the podcast reveals why and how they've shifted to Cloud Computing, using Windows Azure. CCH is a provider of IS, software and virtual products for tax accounting, audit and business professionals. Normally, their customers have to install this software on-premise. By leveraging Windows Azure, they've taken the database and calculation engine part of the system and put it in the Cloud while maintaining tight integration with their Microsoft Dynamics suite. Operating in the Cloud enables CCH to provide a more cost-effective solution for their customers and minimize downtimes, all with very little ramp up time for their development team.
