Pivoting with KQL

Robert Cain continues a series on KQL:

Business Analysis is becoming mainstream in today’s corporate world. A big part of that analysis is done with pivot tables. Think of an Excel spreadsheet where data is organized into rows and columns.

The pivot plugin will take one data column from your query, and flip it to become new columns in the output data grid. The other column will become the rows, and an aggregation function will be at the cross section of the rows and columns, supplying the main data. You’ll get a better understanding through the demos in this post.

You may be wondering “plugin? What’s a plugin?”

I did, in fact, wonder. And Robert explains what a plugin is, as well as examples of how to pivot.
