Today at the Microsoft Tech Summit being held in Washington, D.C., Microsoft’s Julia White has announce new Azure Government capabilities to help drive deeper adoption of the company’s cloud offerings for government.
The new services include:
- Power BI Pro on Azure Government, which is a cloud-based analytics service that connects to a broad range of live data through easy-to-use dashboards. By making Power BI Pro available to Azure Government customers, U.S. government agencies will now be able to extend the way they use their data so they can visualize and analyze data with greater speed, efficiency and understanding. For example, with Power BI Pro, agencies can now continuously monitor information in one place, build interactive reports, identify and analyze data anomalies, and develop procurement and cost analyses more quickly and efficiently.
- Azure Government customers will also be able to use the Power BI Publish to Web feature, which allows customers to easily embed interactive Power BI visualizations online, such as in blog posts, websites, through emails or social media.
- HDInsight on Azure Government, which will offer U.S. government customers fully managed and supported Apache Hadoop, Spark, HBase and Storm clusters. This will help government IT specialists get up and running quickly on any of these workloads without buying hardware or hiring specialized operations teams typically associated with big data infrastructure needs. HDInsight will help agencies further lean into open source technology initiatives and allow data scientists to easily combine code and statistical equations to develop models that can lead to faster and smarter decisions.
