Cortana Intelligence services

Information management

Orchestrate data movement on a fully managed, end-to-end platform. Use Azure Data Factory to build pipelines and collect and orchestrate data from the services you use for easier analysis. Plus, use Azure Data Catalog to effectively manage data sources and Azure Event Hubs to provide a staging area for incoming streaming data.

Big data stores

Store and manage structured data using Azure SQL Data Warehouse that elastically scales with massively parallel processing. Implement a hyper-scale repository with no file size limits for unstructured data using Azure Data Lake Store to attain massive throughput and analytic performance.

Machine learning and analytics

Design and publish predictive models with Azure Machine Learning, use Azure HDInsight to analyze data in Storm and Spark for Hadoop environments, integrate your code from R or Python, and analyze any kind or any size of data you need with Azure Data Lake Analytics and Azure Stream Analytics. Plus, use Microsoft Power BI to create rich visualizations that bring your data to life.
