This demo-heavy session will show numerous examples (Red Hat, Docker and others) of leveraging open source technology on Azure Government to maximize development productivity.
|Enhancing Government Services Through Advanced Analytics
Presenter: Ted Malone
Data is all around us, and it is becoming increasingly hard to abstract relevant insights from our data that lead to intelligent action. In this session, attendees will be introduced to the Microsoft Cortana Intelligence Suite of advanced analytics capabilities, and will see how raw data can be transformed into actionable insight that is used to save lives.
