Through Microsoft's Rapid Deployment Program, Microsoft Premier and Consulting services had the opportunity to work with a Fortune 100 Company that "invents and manufactures technologies to address some of the world's toughest challenges initiated by revolutionary macrotrends in science, technology and society." A simple business opportunity expanded to see how this large, international customer can ingest millions of events per hour, exploit near-real-time analytics, and tackle true 'Big Data' problems successfully on our Azure data platform. We will provide a detailed walk through the architecture that was implemented, review some obstacles met by the various teams (client, product, consulting), and do a deep-dive into the various Azure components: DocumentDB, Stream Analytics, HDInsight, and Azure Data Factory.
Good developers try to make their jobs as easy as possible. We know our application will evolve and will need to scale, so we try to make future changes as simple as possible by layering and decoupling our architecture up front. That's great, but can we do more? Your API should be the most important part of your application, especially if you're deploying to the cloud. By focusing on the API first, you'll reap huge benefits in support and bug fixing, and you'll open your application up to massive scale and new features with minimal effort. With plenty of examples and live demos, this session is a practical guide to writing API-driven applications.
With Multi-Factor Authentication adding a second factor of authentication to on-premises and cloud applications is easier than ever.
