Solution Type: Business Intelligence

Industry Type: Government

Before migrating to Microsoft Dynamics CRM, U.S. Army Europe needed to translate portions of a SQL Server database used for screening and hiring local nationals. Using the Microsoft Translator API, Microsoft Visual C#, and the common language runtime (CLR) environment, engineers automated the translation of select SQL Server data into English. As a result, the Army saved about $150,500 (about 1,750 hours) in manual translation costs, avoided a seven-month delay, and maintained access to all of its historical employment screening data.

The Intelligence, Communication, and Engineering (ICE) Content Team, which operates Microsoft Network (MSN), developed a feature to help improve user recirculation and click-through within the site. This feature searches the content of articles hosted on MSN and displays other related information to the viewer in a widget beside the original article. For instance, an article about finance might showcase information on related stock prices, or a food article might showcase cooking recipes. The feature was built using advanced neuro-linguistic programming, so completely new search models had to be created if the feature was going to be offered in languages other than English.
