Azure Synapse Link | Scott Sewell
Customers have embraced Microsoft’s Power Apps and Dynamics 365 for its ease of use and rapid time to value. Consequently, more and more of their crucial business data is in their Dataverse data platform environments. When the data is relatively limited in volume, Power BI can easily connect to Dataverse directly. For data at larger and larger volumes – or when that data could be enriched or combined with data from other systems, the Azure Analytics Synapse Link feature unlocks incredible scale and flexibility for those solutions.
We’ll look at the options for setting up the Synapse Link for Dataverse and talk through the current and upcoming features.
About the Group
Whether you have a depth of knowledge in a certain area that you want to share or are looking to branch out and learn new aspects of the Azure stack, this is the group for you.
More than learning, the Azure Analytics User Groups is a great place to find professionals in the industry. For those new to the industry (like students), this user group is the easiest and best way to get a good introduction to Azure.
We will discuss the use and direction of tools such as:
- Azure SQL
- Azure Synapse (formerly Azure SQL DW)
- Azure Analysis Services
- Data Factory
- Azure Databricks
- Azure storage
- Azure DevOps
- Power BI
The discussion is not limited to these products and will change over time.
We welcome anyone who wishes to become involved with one of our user groups. From seasoned presenters to those that are just getting started, there are always opportunities to speak at one of our user groups. For sponsors, this is a great chance to get in front of a dedicated audience of data lovers. Email Maria De Somma for more information on these opportunities.
