If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Azure Stream Analytics, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
Overall, we've been quite happy with the product. I would rate it at a nine out of ten.
I would advise potential users to properly plan and structure their static data and the reference data before putting it into the Stream Analytics. On a scale from one to ten, I would give Azure Stream Analytics an eight.
If you want to deploy IoT services, this solution will be very helpful for real-time applications and for collecting data. I would rate Azure Stream Analytics a seven out of ten.
My simple advice would be to not scale up initially. Also, if you have questions don't just rely on the official documentation, but use other resources such as a blog by a developer, because sometimes that can be more helpful than documentation provided by the company. The best advice I can offer would be that if there is a simple solution available, do not try to complicate things. I would rate this solution an eight out of 10.
Azure Stream Analytics is something that we were able to easily learn. It doesn't take much programming sill, so I feel that it is easy to start using. Other than the problem with delays in connecting to Microsoft BI, Kibana, or other monitoring tools, I don't have any other issues with this product. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
We have a mixed system. We also use IBM AIX in addition to the Microsoft platform. That means that ATP works successfully with Microsoft for us. If you want to implement it, the benefits are greater if you have a Microsoft in the surrounding systems. Implementation is always easy. The hard part is then when you must have to use it, when you must work with it. An important part is education, this shouldn't be neglected. I would rate Azure Analytics at eight out of 10. It gives us what we need, we are satisfied with the results.
