We are pleased to announce a new Azure architecture blueprint for Large-Scale Computing - Financial Services (PDF download).
Financial services organizations in insurance, capital markets, and banking bring complex and challenging large-scale workloads to the cloud. To drive their businesses without expanding their on-premises data centers, these organizations need to build efficient cross-premises and hybrid workflows to collect, transform, enrich, and analyze disparate data. Common use cases include risk modeling, customer and compliance reporting, and simulations.
The blueprint illustrates a real-world scenario that uses Azure Data Factory to manage and monitor the data flows, while leveraging Azure Big Compute, Big Data, and infrastructure services including Batch, HDInsight, Machine Learning, Virtual Machines, Virtual Network and more to build cost-effective solutions.
