GA: Azure Stream Analytics, Power BI general availability

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.
