Here is the talk he’ll be giving:

Democratizing Data Analysis: How/Why of Social Sentiment Scoring

The job of a data professional is evolving rapidly, driving many of us to platforms and technologies that were not on our radar screen a few months ago. I am certainly no exception to that trend. Most of us aren’t just monitoring backups and tuning queries – we are collaborating with teams throughout the company to provide them data and insights that drive decisions. Cloud providers are democratizing technologies and techniques that were complicated and proprietary just a few months ago. This presentation walks you through how a silly idea from a soccer podcast got me thinking about how Azure Logic Apps, the Azure Cognitive Services API, and Azure SQL DB combine to provide potentially powerful insights to any company with a social media and sales presence. Join me as I walk you through building a solution that can impact your company’s bottom line – and potentially yours too!

And a bit more about Matt:
