Channel 9 Video on Azure Data Factory

In case you missed it: Channel 9 recently featured a discussion and demos of our preview release of Azure Data Factory.

In this video, Anand Subbaraj introduces us to Azure Data Factory (ADF), a new Azure service that helps data developers and IT professionals easily transform raw data into trusted data assets for their organization at scale.

ADF operates over a range of data services, and supports processing of on-prem SQL Server, Azure SQL Database, Blobs, and Tables using Hive, Pig and C# on HDInsight (Hadoop). With ADF, you can easily create and orchestrate simple, highly available, fault tolerant data analytics pipelines which can be monitored from the Azure Preview Portal.

Organizations all over the world are collecting, processing and gaining insights from more data than ever before – with ADF pipelines you can deliver transformed data from the cloud back to on-premises sources like SQL Server, or keep it in cloud storage; you can take advantage of the seamless connection with Power BI and other applications for the consumption of data assets.
