Microsoft announced today the general availability of Microsoft Azure Analysis Services, the latest addition to their data platform in the cloud. Built on the on-premises analytics engine in SQL Server, Azure Analysis Services provides enterprise-grade data modeling in the cloud.
We have been lucky to be part of the early previews and we already have customers in production. The announcement (Announcing Azure Analysis Services general availability) even quotes our BI Team Manager, Rui Romano:
“One of the great advantages of using Azure Analysis Services and Power BI is that it gives us the flexibility to start small and scale up only as fast as we need to, paying only for the services we use. We also have a very dynamic security model with Azure Analysis Services and Azure Active Directory and in addition to providing row-level security, we use Analysis Services to monitor report usage and send automated alerts if someone accesses a report or data record that they shouldn’t.”
We want to congratulate the Microsoft Business Intelligence team for reaching another important milestone!
We are thrilled to have outstanding technical professionals in our team who are willing to reach out, share their technical expertise with others and help individuals maximize their use of technology. This “sharing culture” has been widely recognized at DevScope and now our SharePoint/.NET team just created a joint blog where they will be sharing even more about what they are interested in:

Microsoft’s Hybrid Integration Platform, which includes BizTalk Server, Azure Logic Apps, Azure API Management and Azure Service Bus, enables businesses in their digital transformation journey. You can now seamlessly connect applications, data and business processes across on-premises and the cloud using the hybrid integration platform.
During the MVP Global Summit 2016, and taking the opportunity of having most of the Integration MVPs gathered at the event, Microsoft Pro Integration team invited them to create short videos (10 minutes webcasts) at Microsoft Building 20, building that is the home of the “famous” Channel 9 studio, about Hybrid Integration, and our coworker Sandro Pereira was one of them. The result is this 8 minutes video on “Empowering Hybrid Integration” where you will learn how you can create powerful hybrid integration solutions using existing on-premises and cloud based solutions.
You can watch more sessions regarding Microsoft’s Hybrid Integration Platform on Channel9 here.
