Add an output sync to Azure Operational Insights
Azure Operational Insights provides a very fast search and indexing mechanism to data. Its a perfect visualization experience on top of the data we are sending from EventHub->StreamAnalytics

Our company's strategy mirrors 'yk's as well.
Log Analytics (= Operational Insights) now provides HTTP Data Collector API. The ability of Log Analytics is really powerful for querying data, visualizing, alerting and max two year data retention with low cost. In my IoT project I'm using IoT Hub and Stream Analytics to collect sensor data from IoT devices. It is possible to develop custom application to transfer data to Log Analytics by using Data Collector API but if ASA natively supports Log Analytics as output sink, it would be really simple but powerful solution for many IoT projects.

We are also wondering about the potential synergies between ASA and Operational insights/OMS. It does seem that Op Insights would just provide some really great functionality around server logs, while it would be amazing to also work with the data in PowerBI via ASA. It's worth noting, we currently only want the log analytic functionality of OMS, so we would like that to somehow be a consumable unit without baggage. Hopefully someone has a vision about all that.
