Interview about Azure Data Factory Updates

Last year at Microsoft Ignite, I was fortunate enough to interview Mike Flasko and Sanjay Krishnamurthi. This year, I got to have a follow-up chat with Mike Flasko and Sharon Lo! We talked about the recent and upcoming Azure Data Factory updates :)

In this interview, Mike and Sharon share the highlights from their session at Microsoft Ignite 2018. What are visual Data Flows? How are Azure Data Factory Data Flows different from the recently announced Power BI Dataflows? What’s on the Azure Data Factory roadmap? And finally, how can you provide feedback and get involved in private previews?

(I apologize for the unsteady video :( Unfortunately, I didn’t see how shaky it was until post-production. If it gets too distracting to watch, please just listen. Mike and Sharon share a lot of interesting things :) )

Thank you so much to Mike and Sharon for chatting with me on a busy day!

Hi Cathrine

Is there video from your Ignite session with Jason Horner somewhere? I’d love to watch it but unfortunately haven’t been able to find it yet.

Best regards

Hi Asbjørn, you can find the recording of our session on YouTube: Real-World Data Movement and Orchestration Patterns Using Azure Data Factory V2. (And for anyone else who might read this, I always link to all session material and recordings from my Speaking page :) )

Thanks a lot. I don’t know how I missed the “speaking” menu right at the header. Will head on over and watch :)

No worries! I just happen to know this website fairly well, so I know where to look :D

That video was great. We’re doing something similar to the patterns you show (bulk and incremental) although we do it with dynamic sql. Is there any chance the demo-db schema is available? I’d like to see how you’re utilizing the hash in the merge and the glimpses are short in the video :) Also I should probably get some more detailed logging set up with the OUTPUT $ACTION.

For all questions about the demo code, please contact Jason Horner. He has continued to build on the example code from our Microsoft Ignite session :) Thanks!
