Featured Presentation

Introduction to Azure Data Factory

Speaker: Mike Diehl, Practice Lead Databases and Business Intelligence Imaginet

Summary: I've been doing a lot of work with Azure Data Factory in the past few months, and I'll show you some of its features. Azure Data Factory (ADF) is Microsoft's cloud-based data integration service for ETL (Extract, Transform and Load). It's somewhat analogous to SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS). ADF can connect to various types of data sources, including file systems, FTP, relational databases, data lakes, and do some transformation of data. It can also execute existing SSIS packages if you want to start migrating more of your on-premises services to Azure.

About Mike: Mike Diehl is the practice lead for databases and Business Intelligence at Imaginet Resources, a Microsoft partner with offices in Dallas, Calgary, and Winnipeg. Mike has over 20 years of experience using Microsoft database technologies and is an expert in Agile Analytics, Scrum, Kanban, and Microsoft Team Foundation Server.
