With this forum being new and all, I'd like to point people to the F# 2.0 in the Enterprise white paper that's availalbe on MSDN.
If you have feedback or questions, or want to raise follow up topics, please let the F# team know, or start a disucssion here! Also don't forget that, while this forum is new, but there is a very large amount of information on F# Enterprise topics on other F# sites such as stackoverflow and hubfs.
Microsoft F# 2.0 is a flexible and efficient language for developing analytical, data-rich, computational and parallel software components. Backed by a professional toolset in Visual Studio 2010 and incorporating the full power of the .NET platform, the language is a perfect companion to existing professional development techniques for enterprise computing.
F# 2.0 combines functional and object-oriented programming to enable the rapid creation of simple code to solve complex problems. It is well suited for performing heavy numeric computations across large data sets and has been successfully applied in financial, statistical, parallel, scientific, engineering, testing, event-processing, tool-development, and general-purpose software components.
This paper outlines the benefits of F# for enterprise scenarios, describes case studies and other real-world experiences with F#, and includes information on finding and developing F# programming skills for your organization.
