Every business aspires to be more data-driven, further fueling the need for enabling data-driven insights & decision making at all levels in an organization.
As the volume, variety, and velocity of data explode - so does the opportunity to harness data more effectively. However, the need to maintain and manage two types of analytics stream: data warehouses and data lakes means more complexity and less agility.
Obviously, there is a need for evolving the approach to data analytics.
More and more customers are choosing cloud to run their business, and Azure Synapse Analytics (formerly known as Azure SQL Data Warehouse) has been showing up as a core part of the company’s analytics strategy. Why: Azure Synapse Data Warehouse is up to 14x faster and costs 94% less than other cloud providers and is ranked the industry leader in two independent benchmark reports.
Synapse Analytics is Microsoft’s new take on the data warehouse. Synapse Analytics brings together traditional Data Warehousing and Big Data analytics – into one offering. With the new offering, Azure Synapse Analytics brings a data warehouse and data lake together.
Azure Analytics is a suite that offers Azure customers:
Limitless scale: Azure Synapse Analytics delivers insights from all your data, across data warehouses and big data analytics systems, with blazing speed.
Powerful insights: It is deeply integrated with Power BI and Azure Machine Learning to greatly expand discovery of insights from all your data and apply machine learning models to all your intelligent apps. This will significantly accelerate time to value.
