Product Recommendations Solution
This solution enables you to create product recommendations predictive models based on historical transaction data and information on the product catalog.
The following scenarios are supported by the SAR algorithm:
Item-to-Item Recommendations. This is the "Customers who liked this product also liked these other products" scenario. Increase the discoverability of items in your catalog by showing relevant products to your customers.
Personalized Recommendations. By providing the recent history of transactions for a given user, the SAR algorithm can return personalized recommendations for that user.
At a high level, The solution exposes mechanisms to:
- Train models using the SAR (Smart Adaptive Recommendations) algorithm.
- Request a previously created model for recommendations.

The API Reference explains in more detail each of the APIs exposed by your newly created solution.
High level architecture
This solution creates a new Azure Resource Group in your Azure subscription with the following components:
An Azure WebApp (and a respective Web Job) The Azure Web-Application exposes a RESTful interface (See API Reference section) that allows you to train recommendations models, and then query those models for product recommendations. The Azure Web-Application also delegates training jobs to an Azure WebJob.
An Azure Storage subscription that is used for storing models, model metadata as well as for WebApp to WebJob communication.
