Azure Data Factory
As one of the newest Azure offerings, Azure Data Factory can at first thought be compared to SSIS. I don’t think we are quite there yet with the comparisons; however, I talk with MVP Reza Rad and discuss some of the similarities and differences between the two.
A consultant now living in New Zealand, Reza has lots of experience with the data management and gives us the scoop on the initial offering of this new Azure tool. I hope you enjoy the episode. If you have some feedback or comments, feel free to reach out on Twitter — I am @CarlosLChacon.
