Microsoft and Thorogood: Cloud Analytics

For large enterprises, the use of cloud products is compelling, providing the ability for greater agility at a much lower investment. For those enterprises with a range of analytics needs and a variety of data sources held on-premises, there are a number of choices to consider. 

This workshop, hosted by Microsoft and Thorogood, is designed to help you understand the range of cloud products available from Microsoft, the role that cloud products might play in your environment and considerations around data location and data usage.

The workshop will cover three key areas:

  • Overview of the current Azure products and architecture, including cognitive services, along with an insider’s view of the upcoming roadmap
  • How considering a Hybrid approach may give you the best of both worlds
  • Real world examples based on case studies and demonstrations from recent client engagements

Wherever you are on the cloud journey, from unsure to fully committed, this workshop can help you consider the products and next steps for your situation.
