Each company has a “case study” description and all of them extol the benefits of using Microsoft Product. Typically it reads:

Solutions Built on the Microsoft Platform

Leverage Software chose the Microsoft .NET platform because it provided both the ability to scale and the flexibility to move quickly. “We create communities for some of the largest companies in the world, so we need a platform that will scale,�? says CTO Joseph Kleinschmidt. “At the same time, the social networking space is a fast-moving one, so we need to be able to quickly deliver new features to our customers. Our solution was to create an on-demand application with a full set of open APIs as a way to deliver both the scale and the flexibility our customers need, and the .NET platform has been a wonderful base from which to do that.�?

So, if you already have plans to use MS products to build the core of your application, this might be a good opportunity. You can apply here.
