A Data Platform for the Future

More Microsoft announcements arrived yesterday for the ever evolving data platform.

Satya outlined his vision of a platform built for an era of ambient intelligence. He also stressed the importance of a “data culture” that encourages curiosity, action and experimentation – one that is supported by technology solutions that put data within reach of everyone and every organization.

There are 3 major changes in the data platform space.

SQL Server 2014 which includes the in-memory functionality for all workloads http://bit.ly/1iYbDxP . It is completely cloud aware.

Analytics Platform System (APS) which includes Parallel Data Warehouse (PDW) and HDInsight which utilises Hadoop & PolyBase for data querying (a tool to jointly query structured and unstructured data) http://bit.ly/1noP8WI

Azure Intelligent Systems Service a cloud-based service to connect, manage, capture and transform machine-generated data regardless of the operating system or platform. This is what Microsoft call our Internet of Things cloud service  bit.ly/1jIECc0

The data platform has significantly evolved over the last few years and it is centred on people, data and analytics. It is an amazingly exciting time at the moment.
