News Roundup from Microsoft Ignite

It’s been a big day for the team here at Microsoft, with a flurry of announcements from the Ignite conference in Orlando. We’ll provide more in-depth details in the coming days and weeks, but for now here’s a brief roundup of the news related to data science: Microsoft ML Server 9.2 is now available. This is the new name for what used to be called Microsoft R Server, and now also includes support for operationalizing the Python language as well as R. This 2-minute video explains how to deploy models with ML Server (and with this release, real-time scoring is now also supported Linux as well). Microsoft R Client 3.4.1, featuring R 3.4.1, was also released today and provides desktop capabilities for R developers with the ability to deploy computations to a production ML Server. The next generation of Azure…
