If you are beginning the journey to Cloud Computing in Microsoft Azure for analytics, one of the best ways that I can recommend to you to get started is with the use of Microsoft pre-built solution templates. The common tool used for these solutions is the Microsoft Cloud BI tool Power BI which is part of Office 365.
The specific solution templates for Power BI are available here. I’m going to focus on 1 of those templates that I use often for customer POCs: Campaign Brand Management for Twitter. That’s because that template includes the back-end Azure cloud functionality to call into Twitter to pull Tweets, process them and mash them up with the Microsoft Azure Cognitive Services for Sentiment Analysis.
