An Introduction to HDInsight

Microsoft has recently released HDInsight, which is an Apache Hadoop based solution in Azure for big data. Unlike traditional SQL Server, HDInsight can handle either structured or unstructured data and can provide this data to SSAS, PowerPivot, PowerView, or Excel. In this session, we'll talk about what HDInsight is or isn't, and how we can use it for analysis and visualization to gain new insights into data that was previously much more difficult to work with.
