Azure Log Analytics, part of the Azure monitoring services, enables you to collect and correlate data from multiple sources and provides actionable insights about your IT environment. By using these insights, you can reduce the mean time to resolution of issues and get time back to focus on your strategy and innovation.
Recently, the service started transitioning the back-end platform to a highly scalable and much more flexible data store—offering powerful search, smart analytics, and even deeper insights. This upgrade provides access to an advanced analytics portal, including an interactive query language and integrations with PowerBI Desktop.
