Today we announced the general availability (GA) of the integration between Azure Stream Analytics and Power BI. With this capability you can create interactive real-time dashboards for streaming data from devices, sensors, infrastructure and even your business applications.
– Azure Stream Analytics lets you rapidly develop and deploy low-cost solutions to gain real-time insights from devices, sensors, infrastructure, and applications. Use it for Internet of Things (IoT) scenarios, such as real-time remote management and monitoring or gaining insights from devices like mobile phones and connected cars.
– Azure Stream Analytics is a fully managed, cost effective Azure Service that enables you to do real-time stream processing on data in-motion using a simple SQL like language. Stream Analytics provides a number of input connectors, such as Azure Event Hubs and Azure IoT Hubs, which allow you to easily ingest data at scale. Using a Stream Analytics job you can then do aggregations, filtering, and grouping of the streaming data on temporal windows. You can then connect a number of downstream databases and systems, such as SQL DB and DocumentDB to persist the results of your analytic computations.
– With today’s announcement you will see another output connector, the Power BI connector, which allows you to stream data directly to a live dashboard. This will dramatically reduce the latency and time to action on your most important business metrics.
Hope this helps.
