Microsoft Azure Synapse Analytics

Combining data warehousing, big data, and modern analytics

Azure Synapse Analytics is a limitless analytics service that combines data integration, data warehousing, big data, and modern analytics. It brings together SQL used in data warehousing and Spark technology used for big data. Furthermore, integrates deeply with other Azure services (e.g. Power BI), offering organizations a single platform that can handle every data challenge.

If you want to gain a competitive advantage from your data, you need to start combining it: integrating different types and volumes of data (big, small, structured and unstructured) from various sources (line-of-business, production floor). Traditionally, however, this requires a complex setup. With Azure Synapse Analytics, Microsoft bridges the gap between enterprise data warehousing and big data and fuses different data processing technologies. The result is a unified experience for all data professionals, from BI developers to data scientists and beyond.

Paired with delaware's ETL framework, which consolidates best practices and accelerators to speed up the development process (via code automation) as well bigger-picture challenges like data quality and logging, Azure Synapse Analytics is the key to unlocking the true value of data streams within your enterprise - at scale.

Key features of Synapse:

  • Handle workloads at any scale with the SQL and Spark engine.
  • Query your data directly in a pay-per-query model with the SQL Serverless option and discover a new world of possibilities.
  • Benefit from an end-to-end, unified user experience for all your data tasks (ingest, explore, analyze, visualize) with Synapse Studio.
  • Unlock the possibilities of the entire Azure platform thanks to seamless integration with other Azure services - including Azure Purview.
  • ...and more.
with Azure Synapse Analytics, Microsoft is finally bringing data warehousing, big data, and data integration together in an end-to-end analytics platform
