Abstract: BI in Real-time Using Cortana Analytics

The ever increasing volume and pace of data demands we take a different approach to analytics—one that goes beyond the traditional method of creating historical reports and calling it Business Intelligence.  As a data professional, it easy to see there are a lot of opportunities to provide valuable insights with the wealth of data streaming by every second.   You might think this is a costly endeavor, one that would require a lot of infrastructure or even one that would take months to implement.  This is where Microsoft’s Cortana Analytics comes into play.  Cortana Analytics is a cloud-based suite of solutions to ingest, manage and visualize data from all sorts of sources.  In this session, we will take an in-depth look at the various Cortana Analytics offerings and demonstrate some real world examples of how you can use the cloud-based platform to pull data from field devices and Twitter, analyze it on the fly and provide a real-time visualizations.
