Analytics is a powerful search tool that lets you analyze large volumes of any JSON or CSV data. You can run a wide range of queries, including statistical and machine learning algorithms. You might be familiar with it as part of Application Insights, but you can also apply it to any stream of NoSQL data.
For example, let’s suppose you receive a data feed about flights. You could automate a daily analysis of route popularity and congestion. Analytics can run complex queries, including joins, aggregations, and statistical functions, to extract the necessary results. You can view the results in the range of charts available in Analytics. Or you could have Power BI run the queries each day, plot the results on maps, and present them on a website.
