Founded on Azure technologies, Microsoft Azure Stack delivers proven, software-defined infrastructure for existing and next-generation applications. With advanced compute, networking, storage and security solutions, you can unlock new levels of flexibility and performance using industry-standard hardware, on top of which you can deliver Azure-based IaaS and PaaS services in your datacenter. These services can be customized to meet the needs of your users, delivering the same self-service experience as Azure to empower your developers through write-once/deploy-anywhere freedom.
By its nature, SQL Server installations on-prem can often require significant CapEx investment on a recurring basis. If you are considering the cloud then you want to ensure that you have received the maximum return from that investment before you switch to a fully OpEx model. Hybrid solutions can let you scale and migrate your SQL Server workloads into Azure while still getting the maximum return from your on-prem infrastructure.
In this session you will see the new Microsoft Business Intelligence Platform: Power BI. We will we will make a tour around the platform and in particular see how it connects with other services (both Microsoft and third-party) to obtain data. After this general tour you will see a very particular demo, about how a very "peculiar" company solves its problems using the Power BI platform and then tell the reality of a company that sells condoms and wants to know where to offer their products best. Fun guaranteed!
