Visualize Azure Metrics into Power Bi Real-Time Streaming Service

Real-time information is hot and trendy! As part of the operational environment, you want to gather information on the health and performance as soon as possible. Azure Monitoring Service can deliver the data one needs in the blink of an eye. In one of my previous blog posts on Azure Monitoring Service, I explained how to utilize and integrate metrics in the Azure dashboard. Thanks to the metrics’ extensibility, you can stream this information directly to Power Bi. The big advantage? This information now becomes available in the reporting tool Power Bi, typically used to create an application reporting dashboard. Technical and business information can be brought together in Power Bi, thus providing even more analysis insight.

Azure Monitor Service: a first test with logical apps

Last week, Microsoft released its newest feature: Azure monitor. This new platform service provides monitoring for single Azure resources and can visualize, query, route, archive, and take action on the metrics and logs coming from those resources. Working in an enterprise environment, I am curious to explore how this feature provides an added value to cloud integration. In this post, I’d therefore would like to point out some interesting properties! Personally, I’ll mainly use Logical apps to investigate Azure Monitor, but those technics are, of course, applicable to other Azure resources as well.
