  • Recommendations: Providing personalized product recommendations on an E-Commerce site is one of the most important tools that a retailer can deploy, as product recommendations dramatically improve conversion rates for online retailers. Microsoft provides a Recommendation API in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. The Recommendations API is an example built with Microsoft Azure Machine Learning that helps your customer discover items in your catalog. Customer activity in your digital store is used to recommend items and to improve conversion in your digital store. The recommendation engine may be trained by uploading data about past customer activity or by collecting data directly from your digital store.
