The desire and expectation to use real-time data is constantly growing, businesses need to react to market trends instantly. In the new data driven age a daily ETL load/processing window is not enough. We need a constant stream of information and analytics achieved in real-time. In this session will look at how that can be achieved using Azure Stream Analytics. Building streaming jobs that can blend and aggregate data as it arrives to drive live Power BI dashboards. Plus, we will consider options for using Stream Analytics in production and what other tools could be used in the ever-growing list of Azure services. Lastly, we will explore the theory behind a complete Lambda architecture where we combine streaming and batch data together and how this different from the Databricks Delta architecture.
