Microsoft Cortana Intelligence Suite Workshop Video Tutorial Series (5/5): Predictive Web Service

The last part of this video tutorial series includes three exercises. First, Exercise 6 uses Power BI Desktop, import the summary data from the Spark cluster and create a report with drag-n-drop to visualize the data. Exercise 7 is the exciting part, configures and deploys a sample web app and configures it to consume the predictive web service published in Exercise 1, followed by conducting a few simple tests. Finally, Exercise 8 shows how to clean up the deployed resources of the workshop.

Here you start.

Microsoft Cortana Intelligence Workshop encompasses a set of processes and supporting tools to architect, construct, package and deploy a predictive analytics solution.
