Details

Featured Speaker: Brandon Brockhoeft
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 and also examine the cost of Data Factory, as well as the cost of complexity and maintenance of custom solutions. You’ll even get to see a sample pipeline built in .NET and look at the Azure UI Designer options for continuous delivery.
