Microsoft SQL USP

In the data integration software market, Microsoft provides Microsoft Azure Data Factory, a cloud-based data integration service. This orchestrates and automates the process of moving and transforming data. Users can use this data integration service to ingest data from various data sources, transform the data, and load the output to data storage units. Azure Data Factory itself does not store any data, as such. It lets users create datadriven flows to orchestrate the movement of data between supported data stores and processing of data using compute services in other regions or an on-premises environment. Request Microsoft SQL Pricing to get more information.


The company enables users to create data pipelines that facilitate the process of moving and transforming the data. These data pipelines can be then run on a specified schedule (hourly or weekly basis). Azure Data Factory enables users to visualize data lineage and dependencies between data pipelines; monitor data pipelines and set up monitoring alerts; automate cloud resource management, and connect to on-premises or cloud data sources, using data management gateways. In addition to data movement and transformation, It is enables preparation and partitioning of data. Azure Data Factory further features real-time streaming, machine learning for analytics, and enables custom coding.

Microsoft SQL presence in Data Integration Software

Microsoft has been an eminent global vendor in providing a diverse set of software, licensing solutions, and hardware products across different verticals for over 3 decades now. Among the Fortune 500 companies, 80% of them are on Microsoft Cloud. Enabling business users has been one of the key priorities of Microsoft, which is evident through its R&D efforts in the data integration market. In order to cater to the demands of its clientele base, the company spent 13% of its revenue on R&D in 2016. Through this investment, the company has succeeded in delivering innovative data integration, data management products, and new cloud services in this market. In March 2016, Microsoft released a preview version of Azure Data Factory (ADF) Copy Wizard for interactive and code-free data movement experience. With this release, customers could easily move data between Azure BlobStorage, Azure SQL, Azure SQL DW, Azure Data Lake, and On-Premises SQL Server, using a simple and code-free wizard. Another development saw the release of ADF Monitoring & Management (M&M) App in February 2016. With this release, users could easily monitor and manage their data factory pipelines using the completely redesigned M&M App. Microsoft has been working toward comprehensively becoming an exclusive mobile and cloud service provider, which reflects through its Mobile First, Cloud First strategy. In this pursuit, the company launched ADF, a cloud service for data integration, which automates the process of aggregating data from multiple sources, so that it could be analyzed later.

I liked the integration with the .NET framework where developers can use the C language features versus TRAN sql. The other impressive features were event handling and data Source/Destination wizards.
