We are the Azure Data Explorer web UX team. Azure data explorer is Azure’s Big-Data Analytics service that enables lightning speed querying and exploration of huge data sets.

Although fairly young, Azure Data Explorer has already been extensively adopted internally for all log-analytics needs, and externally we are growing exponentially. ADX (Azure Data Explorer) is already indexing more than 40 PB (petabytes) of data every day.

ADX Web Explorer is the UX through which our customers interact with Azure Data Explorer. Through our web-based Single-page-app they send their data to ADX, author their queries, visualize the results, and create dashboards to share with their team.
