During this one-hour session, ComponentArt Director of Development Milos Glisic, and Microsoft Program Manager Christian Liensberger will demonstrate how to create interactive, web-based digital dashboards in Silverlight 4 and mobile dashboards on Windows Phone 7 using ComponentArt's Data Visualization technology and Windows Azure Marketplace DataMarket.
“DataMarket, in Windows Azure Marketplace, is an information marketplace where users can easily discover, explore, subscribe, and consume trusted premium data and public domain data. Content partners can publish on DataMarket to increase the discoverability and global reach of their proprietary data.
"Users have access to many types of data such as demographic, environmental, financial, retail, weather and sports data. Developers can leverage a simple and uniform REST based OData API to embed this data into their applications. DataMarket provides many free datasets from leading industry providers including the United Nations, Data.gov, World Bank, Zillow, Weather Bug, Weather Central, Alteryx, and Wolfram Alpha. Developers can mash up rich industry data to enhance the capabilities of their applications."
