Microsoft Build 2017 Looks Into An Intelligent Future

Meanwhile, serverless computing supplements DevOps because it frees up developers and IT operations staff from having to set up and tune systems. In the event, Microsoft is expected to detail and share more about the company's future plans for Windows, Cortana, Office 365, and Microsoft Azure.

Azure Mobile App: Now in beta, developers can view and receive notifications of health data and metrics on a number of app services, as well as start and stop VMs and Web apps.

Moreover, Microsoft announced new technology to enable developers to "containerize" existing .NET apps and deploy them to Azure via Microsoft's Azure Service fabric microservices platform, which supports both Windows and Linux.

Microsoft is also opening up the tech that supports its AI development to developers by adding 29 new cognitive computing services into the Microsoft Cognitive Services suite. The software giant this week announced the latest burst of an upgrade for its cloud computing service, which includes a new distributed database service, IoT updates, and some major enhancement to Azure's database portfolio.

GE said it remains a partner to, not a competitor with, Microsoft in the Industrial IoT market, a GE spokesperson told CRN. That service, which is actually a geo-distributed NoSQL offering called CosmosDB, is the subject of a separate post by Mary Jo Foley, and well worth reading up on.

Taking a page from Facebook's lexicon, the term Microsoft Graph refers to all the data gathered not only from users interacting with Azure services but devices and any sensors attached to them.

The $14.8 billion from the commercial cloud businesses represents more than 15 percent of the $96.24 billion in overall revenue that Wall Street expects from Microsoft this year. DevOps, continuous delivery and containerisation.

The move basically makes it possible for developers to use some of the most popular databases on Azure.

Tribune Media (TRCO) Receiving Somewhat Favorable News Coverage, Report Finds
The business had revenue of $439.90 million during the quarter, compared to the consensus estimate of $450.18 million. First Command Bank bought a new stake in shares of Tribune Media during the fourth quarter valued at about $121,000.

One of the applications Microsoft showed during the keynote was how computer vision could be used on a building site.

"What Orwell prophesied in '1984, ' where technology was being used to monitor, control, dictate, or what Huxley imagined we may do just by distracting ourselves without any meaning or goal - neither of these futures is something that we want", he said.

Microsoft also unveiled new tools to help people more easily incorporate artificial intelligence into their applications.

For instance, Microsoft introduced services for migrating Oracle databases to its Azure cloud and launched Android and iOS apps for managing cloud resources.

The Cosmos DB announcement is the big bang release from the first day of Microsoft Build, but the Azure Database for MySQL and PostgreSQL might just be the one that has developers more interested. Also new is a Visual Studio Snapshot Debugger that provides quicker debugging response to apps running on premises or in the cloud.

The new Azure Cloud Shell provides an authenticated, browser-based shell experience accessible from anywhere.

Microsoft on Wednesday, May 10, USA time, unveiled new tools meant to democratize artificial intelligence by enabling machine smarts to be built into software from smartphone games to factory floors.
