Introducing New Capabilities for Big Data Analytics in the Cloud
Abstract: At Microsoft, we work with thousands of enterprises every day, and leverage Exabytes of data to run our own businesses such as Windows, Bing and XBox. In this talk, we’ll showcase key customer use cases that show how we have overcome common obstacles in big data adoption such as the high learning curve, cost of implementation, challenges in tuning infrastructure, and providing enterprise grade security. Come learn how you can leverage the rich analytic services in Azure to transform your data easily at any scale with the tools you already know. This talk will introduce new capabilities to process data at any scale using familiar tools. You will also learn how to compose tools such as Spark and R or do scale-out querying on demand, at massive scale with no hardware to deploy, software to tune/configure and infrastructure to manage.
