Introduction to Azure Synapse Analytics
- Azure Synapse Analytics
One of Microsoft’s newest cloud services, Azure Synapse Analytics positions itself as a key tool to unlock insights and drive decision-making from data and analytics.
With the rapid growth of Data Lakes and continued strength of structured data warehouses, a consolidated tool to ingest, prepare, manage, and serve data for enterprise cloud stores offers compelling opportunities for the Azure platform.
As enterprise organizations design modern data architectures and cloud-based applications, the ability to work with data on limitless infrastructure presents interesting possibilities to manipulate large data volumes, combine different types and sources of data, and perform analytic exercises.
In this recorded webcast, we analyze the key capabilities of Azure Synapse Analytics and consider where it fits within the Azure cloud ecosystem. We discuss what the evolution of SQL Data Warehouse to Synapse Analytics entails for existing Azure implementations and highlight the added features Synapse offers for data warehousing and big data analytics.
