Companies in the very near future will need to be able to react to things that are happening around them in a timeframe that allows for decisive action. Being able to do a weekly batch insert from your OLTP systems into an analytical database are always going to be needed but what if your business needs to make decisions as soon as something happens and not whenever you load the datawarehouse? Banking, Betting, Motor Sport and Manufacturing.

In this session, I am going to show you some of the things you can do in Stream Analytics. Correlation with a lookup dataset, all a machine learning function and Windowing. Too many people are wary of real-time data, this session will show you that you don't need to be.
