The Ultimate Jigsaw - Architecting Azure Synapse Analytics

 
English Intermediate Other

Azure Synapse Analytics holds both promise and peril for data professionals of every stripe. In order to get maximum use of this tool, we need to figure out not only what it can do on its own, but also how it fits together with everything else in Azure. Since Azure Synapse Analytics is a tightly packaged collection of seemingly random pieces, this can seem quite overwhelming - especially for someone coming from the data side of things. If you wonder how security works, what piece go where or how the network plays a part in moving data around, this is the session for you. In this session we will look into what pieces make up the buffet that is Azure Synapse Analytics, find out how it can work with both structured and unstructured data with ease, and explore some of the architectural patterns that ensure security and performance.
