At the recent AIMS Talks event in Oslo, Microsoft Integration Specialist – and recent addition to the AIMS Team – Ricardo Torre demoed how to apply AI to integrations using Azure, Logic Apps and BizTalk. Watch the full session video below, and read on for a summary of key takeaways from Ricardo's presentation.
Ricardo explained to us how to start implementing AI in integration and have it work with both BizTalk and Logic Apps. You can start by using the Azure Machine Learning Studio, a fully integrated, drag and drop GUI interface.
So, where in my integrations could I use Machine Learning?
- Operational: the need to know why operations are performing how they do. You can also use Machine Learning for anomaly detection and preemptive operational actions.
- Business: a company might need to know how the orders are doing, and if there is any abnormal behavior.
Ricardo provided us with a demo on detecting anomalies in BizTalk tracking data, showing how easy it is to apply machine learning on a dataset. To apply machine learning to Logic Apps operational data, you can use the tracking data generated by the logic apps. Using Logic Apps, you can automate data collection and ingestion.
In the second demo, Ricardo used a high level of machine learning: cognitive services. It contains intelligent algorithms to see, hear, speak, understand and interpreted natural communication, and to search.
