Real time is fundamental for the life of an organization and to the decision making process, therefore, building a real-time analytical model becomes a business need.

In this session we will learn which processes are required to build a real-time analytical model along with batch-based workloads, which are the foundation of a Lambda architecture.

At the end of the session, you will have learned how to ingest, store, prepare and serve the data with Apache Kafka for HDInsight, Azure Data Lake Store Gen 2, Azure Databricks, SQL Data Warehouse and Power BI

20:15 - Ben Jarvis - Azure Functions and Cosmos DB – A Match Made In Heaven

This session will talk about how you can combine the serverless power of Azure Functions with the flexibility of Azure Cosmos DB to process large amounts of data and gain real-time insights.

We will taking real-time position reports from aircraft across the world, ingesting them into Azure and using Azure Functions to process the ingested data in real-time to output the data in a format suitable for users to visualise. We will make use of a number of Azure services including Event Hubs, Cosmos DB and Azure Functions and show how we can combine a bit of C# with the power of Azure to do great things; while keeping our Azure resource costs at an acceptable level. We’ll also look at how easy it is to monitor the solution using Application Insights to give us a full picture of how our application is running.
