Do you want to be a cool secret agent and command your app just with your voice? Do you want to enable your users to quickly use your app while hands free or while doing other tasks. Meet Cortana, ready to do your bidding (or tell you a bad joke). Your personal assistant Cortana is inhabiting more devices and more platforms. She is even "speaking Aussie" on Australian devices and helps with making sure you get to work on time, don't miss your flight and whether you should wear a coat tomorrow. But did you know she can also be customised to work in your app?
Richard Conway and Andy Cross, Azure MVPs from Elastacloud, take you on a tour de force of Big Data as a workload and the available services on Azure for supporting them. The session begins with introductory outlining of IaaS, PaaS and SaaS offerings; from the complexities and power of building a Linux IaaS cluster to the simplicity and bounded capabilities of Cloud Services via HDInsight. The session will continue to give hands on examples of HDInsight, the Hadoop on Azure service and will conclude with a demonstration of Machine Learning with the new AzureML service.
The Lync Call Quality Methodology (CQM) is a practical approach that applies the broad guidance we have published in the Lync Networking Guide. CQM is a data driven framework backed by SQL queries and an operational process to systematically improve and maintain call quality. CQM was derived from Microsoft and some of our largest customer deployments. CQM was published in v2 of the Networking Guide complete with queries and an updated set of 2010/2013 KHIs. This session will go through the individual components of CQM, describe our recommended process for implementing it, show findings from using CQM and go into detail on how the SQL queries work and how you can customize them for you or your customer's needs.
