A new era of analytics is being engendered by cloud computing. The cloud gives us the power to collect and integrate data from an enormous variety of sources, to process big data at amazing scale and economics, to dramatically simplify development and deployment, and offer amazing intelligent APIs and applications as hosted services. In this keynote talk, Joseph will review with demos and examples how these game-changing developments will change how we live, work and play, and show the enormous opportunities for customers and partners to capitalize on these innovations.
In 2010, Microsoft's Developer Division began Visual Studio Team Services, the Software-As-A-Service (SaaS) offering based on Team Foundation Server. This is the story of moving a traditional software business to Cloud-First Development and DevOps. The technologies included enterprise git, a modern release pipeline, automated testing, usage and performance monitoring, log analysis, a data-driven backlog, lean cycle metrics, and public cloud hosting. The talk combines the cultural transformation, practices, technical choices, and metrics.
