TechnoStore App


To demonstrate that a cloud application hosted on Windows Azure Platform can cooperate with Office 365’s functional capabilities.


The application includes basic ERP functions in order to simulate a real-world environment of an application stored on the cloud (using Windows Azure and SQL Azure). The application requires a User ID and Password of an Office 365 subscription in order to be able to simulate seamless integration between the application’s ERP functions and the features provided by Office 365, namely Exchange Online, Lync Online and SharePoint Online.

Pre-requisites for deployment and test:
