Intro to Application Insights
(aka Understanding What the Hell is Going On With Your App)

Building websites & apps is easy. Building reliable and valuable websites and apps is hard. It is critical it is to understand who your customers are and how they are using your product. You want to understand usage trends to better target the right personas and environments, prioritize the right workflows, and invest in the right sets of features. Of course you also want that information in near-real-time to ensure you can quickly respond to changing customer needs. See how Application Insights can help with comprehensive 360° views across availability, performance, and usage with minimum effort and cost.

Bringing It All Together: Microsoft's Integration Roadmap

On Christmas Eve 2015, Microsoft released a roadmap for delivering its vision of a simplified, unified, and robust platform for integration using both cloud and on-premises technology. This session will provide an overview of the roadmap, highlighting how planned improvements over this year will help in closing the gap between traditional server-based solutions and modern API integration approaches, democratising access to tools that previously demanded specialised skills, and enabling hybrid scenarios with greater scalability and ease of implementation. Come see how Microsoft is evolving integration by leveraging the power of Azure!
