A lap around Azure Data platform

Microsoft Azure cloud platform provides a number of options for storing all kinds of Data big or small, relational or NoSQL, and performing actions on Data. With so many available choices (IAAS and PAAS) it can be difficult to know the right Azure service to use for a given scenario. This session is about discovering the options of storing data in Azure and processing them. The talk will also touch on some associated services to build a streaming data pipeline. A reference architecture for big data analytics pipeline in Azure will be explained in the talk. The architecture will have data ingestion, preparation, real-time and batch analysis, publication and consumption stages. It is a whirlwind tour but I promise you will come out exhilarated at the end of the talk.

I am expecting the participant to have some experience in data related technology. Knowledge of big data terms and prior exposure to AWS or Azure will be helpful.
