What you'll learn

  • See how giving every employee access to real-time data at Microsoft allowed teams to better operate their products


Interested in becoming more data driven and empowering your peers and coworkers with insights and data? Yoni Leibowitz and Sasha Rosenbaum share how Microsoft has been constantly transforming its engineering, support, finance, and marketing work via new tech for data-driven decisions.

Project Kusto gave every employee access to real-time data about all Microsoft services, replacing the previous systems with a far superior service at a dramatically lower cost. This change transformed the company in a fundamental way so that many organizations and teams across the company can’t imagine operating their products without it.

This session is sponsored by Microsoft.
