Big Data on Microsoft Azure

The traditional enterprise data warehouse has been around a long time, and it isn’t going away anytime soon. However, with modern options based on Hadoop like HDInsight and PolyBase, and new analytic and data mining techniques, the warehouse is no longer the center of our business analytics universe. Enterprises now have the flexibility to integrate and analyze external and internal data in ways previously not possible.

We will demonstrate how to do initial data loading and analysis using HDInsight and Power Query, and then visualizing that data using Power View.
