Azure Data Explorer is a latest edition to Azure Data Platform. It enables exploration of real time data. The first thought that came to my mind when i read about this, was how is it different from stream analytics which is meant to perform analytics on streaming data.
Upon researching and reading further on the tool, understood that Azure data explorer is meant for exploring real time data unlike stream analytics which is meant to execute queries while the data is on the wire and is consumed by either power bi report or an action is performed based on the query being executed.
However with Azure Data explore, we explore and understand the data better.
From Data sources perspective, as of now it can accept data from sources such as event hubs.
Very excited about this tool
