This month we're going to break out of our usual format and feature a variety of short sharp presentations on a selection of new Azure features & topics. Each presentation will run approximately 10-15 minutes and allow time for group discussion.
Here's the topic list so far (but keep coming back as the agenda may change closer to the event!):
Cortana Analytics Suite
An overview of Cortana Analytics Suite, a fully managed big data and advanced analytics suite that enables you to transform your data into intelligent action.
Update on ExpressRoute
Peter will give us an update on the latest features of ExpressRoute.
Azure Files Storage
Unfortunately Kris will be unavailable to present this week - but we look forward to seeing his talk at a future meeting!
Azure Mobile Engagement
Azure Mobile Engagement allows you to maximise app usage, retention and monetization through the collections and processing of analytics.
Azure Data Factory
The ADF is a platform for automating and orchestrating the various components that make up a big data solution in Azure such as Stream Analytics, Hadoop, Machine Learning and Power BI. Prior to ADF these components were developed separately requiring custom code and manual steps to bring them together as an end-to-end solution. This approach was slow to market, onerous and difficult to manage operationally. With ADF the challenge of ingesting, transforming and presenting large datasets as a business service is made simple.
The new IoT Suite is a cloud-based offering with preconfigured solutions that address common Internet of Things scenarios, so you can capture and analyze untapped data to transform your business.
