Crud, Another ETL Solution: Azure Data Factory
Spending too much time building and maintaining your data analytics and data warehousing applications, but don’t want to invest in a pricey commercial solution with licensing entanglements? Azure Data Factory is an alternative to writing something completely custom that plugs into lots of services and can be tailored where needed.
In this talk, you’ll learn how and why to leverage Azure Data Factory as the stepping stone for your organization’s ETL, ELT, and big data solutions. We’ll explore the distinguishing data and compute platforms that you’ll be able to use along with developer features like git source control and continuous delivery. You’ll even get to see a sample pipeline built in .NET and the Azure UI Designer that works with open data sources.
