Windows and Windows Phone have a converged Live Tiles platform and development model. In Windows Phone 8.1 you’ll be able to do great new things with the Tiles Platform and this session is targeted at helping you understand several critical tiles topics. We talk about our converged WNS push platform and about migrating your tiles from a Windows Phone 8.0 app to a Windows Phone 8.1 app and how to best take advantage of the new Tile Templates and scenarios available to you using the converged model on Windows Phone 8.1.
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.
