Introduction to Azure Synapse Analytics

Do you want to learn how to bring together enterprise data warehousing and big data analytics? In a recent webinar, 3Cloud consultant Mike Donnelly, explores the components included with an Azure Synapse Workspace. This presentation goes through all the various pieces of Synapse, what it is and what it can do, as well as why people will be using this more and more as people build modern data warehouse.
When you search Azure Synapse Analytics, you’ll see there is Azure Synapse Analytics (formerly known as Azure SQL DW) which has been around for a bit as a data warehouse solution. But you will also find Azure Synapse Analytics Workspaces Preview. This preview resource is the focus today and many of the pieces it includes will be covered (and demoed), including:
• SQL Pools (formerly known as SQL Data Warehouse)
• Built-in SQL Pool (aka SQL On-Demand/Serverless)
• Azure Data Lake Storage (Gen2)
• Spark Compute Pools (not Azure Databricks)
• Integrate (Azure Data Factory)
If you’re interested in learning more about Azure Synapse Analytics and why it will become the tool of choice for building modern data warehouse, this webinar is for you. Watch the complete webinar below.
