Microsoft Azure: Turning tiny insects into big data

Technology is transforming the way field researchers collect data. Hogan Consulting Group knows that, with the right tools, our customers can transform the way they do business, too.

Using smart traps to capture mosquitos, epidemiologists are studying the DNA that mosquitos collect. Using the cloud, researchers can analyze over 100 million pieces of DNA in a matter of hours, identifying where diseases come from and how they spread. “If we can detect new viruses before they spread, we can stop outbreaks before they begin.” That’s the transformative power of Microsoft Azure.

That power can be used to transform your organization. Hogan Consulting Group can help you. Contact us to find out how.

Build forms from scratch and handle responses with Microsoft Forms

Teaching kids the life skills they need to succeed can be time consuming. Microsoft Forms is a new part of Office 365 Education that allows teachers and students to quickly and easily create custom quizzes, surveys, questionnaires, registrations, and more. With Microsoft Forms and Flow, you can receive email, push, or text notifications when new survey responses are submitted. You can also notify your team by posting the response to your channel on Teams, Yammer, or Slack. Best of all, Microsoft Flow is compatible with over 100 different apps, helping automate tasks that are time consuming. This saves time and allows teachers to spend more time teaching.
