Please note, this meetup will be streamed through YouTube Live: https://youtu.be/07j22d4B_hA
The Long Range Capacity Planning team at Microsoft is responsible for producing plans for expanding Microsoft Azure Data Centers around the world. These are multi-billion dollar plans that enable the full suite of IaaS and PaaS cloud offerings for our customers, over a 5+ year time horizon. In this talk, we will present the data science software stack that we have built using RStudio Connect and Azure, for producing these data center capacity plans. We will discuss how RStudio Connect has empowered our data scientists to connect more directly with internal stakeholders and decision makers, and how RStudio Connect has enabled us to streamline our data science and business processes.
