The Azure Management Services team at Catapult required a quick way to visualize the key health pieces for their customers, using a visually intuitive dashboard.
At Catapult, we ported our existing Azure workbook dashboards to SquaredUp through migrating the existing Log Analytics queries that they were built on. SquaredUp provided us with a way to move our existing dashboard experience into a standalone experience outside of Azure.
