What do you want to know?
When should you use Azure Synapse Analytics vs. Azure Data Factory? How can you optimize your Pipelines and Data Flows? Can Azure Purview bring additional benefits for Data Engineers? How do you set up automated deployment? What are some best practices to follow and pitfalls to avoid?
I’m sure you can think of many other questions! You can of course also ask questions during the session, it’s a live session after all! I just want to make sure that we have some questions queued up from the start to get the most out of our time 😊
(If we don’t get through all the questions during the session, I will try to get them answered in a follow-up blog post.)
