Microsoft Book of News – Ignite 2021

Microsoft Ignite 2021 Announcements

Another Microsoft Book of News, this time from Ignite 2021. Thanks Microsoft, really handy having all the announcements in one place.

Not loads of Data & AI things shared at this event. But still 55 pages of some impressive additions to the Microsoft products.

My favourite bits as a Data Platform person:

Page 11 – Azure Synapse Pathway

With the launch of Azure Synapse Pathway, customers can simplify and
accelerate migrating from a legacy or cloud data warehouse to Azure
Synapse Analytics by providing automated translation of existing business
logic. Azure Synapse is a limitless analytics service that brings together
data integration, enterprise data warehousing and big data analytics to
provide real-time data insights. This downloadable tool enables customers
to access resources such as Teradata, SQL Server, Netezza, Snowflake,
BigQuery, Redshift and others. This allows automatic translation of more
than 100,000 lines of SQL

Page 11 – Azure Stream Analytics

Azure Stream Analytics, now generally available, has been updated
to provide support for single tenant dedicated clusters. Azure Stream
Analytics Dedicated provides single tenant hosting for increased reliability
with no noise from other tenants. Customer resources are “isolated” and
perform better during bursts in traffic.

Page 11 – Azure Purview

Azure Purview’s ability to automatically scan and classify data residing
in AWS Simple Storage Services (S3), SAP ECC, SAP S4/HANA and
Oracle Database is now available in preview. With this update,
customers can automatically scan and classify data residing within
various on-premises data stores using the Azure Purview Data Map.
In addition, this data can now be discovered across the organization.

Azure Purview’s ability to scan Azure Synapse Analytics workspaces
is now available in preview. With this update, customers can discover
and govern data across their serverless and dedicated SQL pools in
Azure Synapse workspaces. This expands on Azure Purview’s existing
tools, enabling customers to scan data across various sources via
out-of-the-box connectors in the Data Map.

Page 13 – Azure Synapse Link for Azure Cosmos DB

Azure Synapse Link for Azure Cosmos DB is now generally available.
Azure Synapse Link for Cosmos DB enables cloud-native and near-realtime
analytics to be run over the NoSQL data in Azure Cosmos DB,
including MongoDB. Azure Synapse Link breaks down the barrier that h
as long existed between online transactional processing (OLTP) and
online analytical processing (OLAP) systems by linking Azure Cosmos DB
to Azure Synapse Analytics.
