Application Insights is an extensible Application Performance Management (APM) service for web developers on multiple platforms. Use it to monitor your live web application. It will automatically detect performance anomalies. It includes powerful analytics tools to help you diagnose issues and to understand what users actually do with your app. It’s designed to help you continuously improve performance and usability. It works for apps on a wide variety of platforms including .NET, Node.js and J2EE, hosted on-premises or in the cloud. It integrates with your devOps process, and has connection points to a variety of development tools.

Bill will demonstrate App Insights on the philly.NET Azure web app and show how to monitor existing web sites for availability. PowerShell is then used to automate availability ping tests.

“Internet of Things” is the ability to connect devices and transmit their data for storage and analysis. These devices range from simple Arduino and Raspberry Pis kits to industrial manufacturing machines, and the data they are collecting have the power to digitally transform businesses. Azure provides services to securely connect and manage your devices as well as collect, store and analyze your data. In this talk, I will describe the Azure components involved in a typical IoT solution as well show how easy it is to get started with your own IoT solution.
