What we're about

The Jacksonville SQL Server Users Group (JSSUG) is a registered non-profit 501c3 charitable organization providing free technical education relating to the Data Platform surrounding Microsoft SQL Server. This group was originally founded by Brian Knight in January 2003, creating a community for database developers and administrators in the Jacksonville area. The goal of JSSUG is to educate, share knowledge, best practices, and network. Today, it is a community focusing on data, development, administration, and business intelligence. Free meetings are open to the public the third Wednesday of every month. Meetings include presentations, technology announcements, local job opportunities, and quick brainstorming/guidance for users experiencing difficulty. JSSUG

PreCon: Analytics with Azure Synapse & Power BI - Ginger Grant

University of North Florida

$150.00

In this all-day session we will be doing a deep dive into using Azure Synapse Analytics to create an analytics solution using the different components of Azure Synapse and visualize data with Power BI. Whether you choose to call it a Modern data warehouse or lakehouse or a datamart , the process to create it is the same, you need to gather the data from different data sources, analyze, transform, and develop a data model to provide user insight with the data by generating visuals on the data in Power BI.
The process involved sounds simple, but it involves a lot of different technology to create a robust scalable solution. This precon describes the components used to create a data lakehouse, perform serverless data analysis on flat files, develop code first data transformation pipelines, incorporate spark development, and implementing administration and security needed for a Power BI model with a Azure Synapse created backend.
By the end of the precon you will have the skills and code needed to implement this solution in your environment.

Agenda

• Introduction
• Developing a data lakehouse
• Analyzing the data
• Transformation layer
• Spark development
• Administration and security
