Chris Seferlis discusses one of the lesser known and newer Data Services in Azure, Data Explorer.

If you’re looking to run extremely fast queries over large sets of log and IoT data, this may be the right tool for you. I also discuss where it’s not a replacement for Azure Synapse or Azure Databricks, but works nicely alongside them in the overall architecture of the Azure Data Platform.

In BlueGranite’s recent webinar, you will see several examples of Python in action for data modeling and visualization in Power BI. You will also learn where and how Python fits into a Power BI development workflow.

You’ll also see how to balance Python with native Power BI functionality and determine what limitations must be considered when using Python in Power BI.

In this video, get answers to questions like: Why should you care about the data model? What kind of relations are available? How do they influence performance? Why redundancy is (not) a bad thing? Don’t just tell your friends that you’re a professional who works with models, but be great in doing it.

Data Lake Storage Gen 2 is the best storage solution for big data analytics in Azure. With its Hadoop compatible access, it is a perfect fit for existing platforms like Databricks, Cloudera, Hortonworks, Hadoop, HDInsight and many more. Take advantage of both blob storage and data lake in one service!

In this video, Azure 4 Everyone introduces to what Azure Data Lake Storage is, how it works and how can you leverage it in your big data workloads. I will also explain the differences between Blob and ADLS.
