As a consultant I do a lot of demo’s and workshop at customers and it is nice to have data in the solutions that we are showing the value of.
I just found out that you can populate demo data into Windows Analytics – Upgrade Readiness so that you can show a lots of data in the solution.
- You need to have a Azure Subscription to setup OMS
- You need to Add the Windows Analytics – Upgrade Readiness to your OMS
