ERWIN & BUSINESS ANALYTICS

Azure Synapse Analytics

Azure Synapse Analytics

 

Insights for all

Azure Synapse provides a breathtaking view of your data across data warehouses and big data analytics systems. Bringing these two worlds together into a single service is challenging as it requires unifying similar concepts that operate differently in each world such as security, privacy, and performance. With Azure Synapse, this seamless unification of data warehousing and big data not only simplifies a business’s analytics platform, but also breaks down silos that exist today because of teamsdata, and skills.

Azure Synapse Intro

Azure Synapse Analytics Workspace

During Ignite 2019 we already saw the first announcement about Azure Synapse Analytics. The first Public Preview was announced during Build 2020.

Immediately after Build 2020, I started playing and exploring with Azure Synapse Analytics Workspace.
Fortunately, I was off for a few days and was able to use this free time to dive a little bit into Azure Synapse.

A few days later during the Analytics in a Day workshops that I gave for my employer InSpark in collaboration with Microsoft, I immediately took the time to give a Live demo. I found the inspiration for this Live demo during a YouTube session presented by Simon Whiteley.

For many participants it is more imaginative,  to walk through the product Live than to tell a story via PowerPoint Slides.

Upcoming Articles

In the coming days I will try to write a number of articles so that you become more familiar with the various possibilities of Azure Synapse Analytics.

I have the following articles in mind:

✅ Creating your Azure Synapse Analytics Workspace

✅ Exploring the new Azure Synapse Analytics Studio

Creating an Apache Spark Pool

Creating a SQL Pool

Integration with Power BI

And if you have more subject which needs to be explained feel free to leave them in the comments.

Happy reading!
