As Azure has grown at a breakneck pace, the umbrella once known as SQL Server, including components like Integration Services, Analysis Services, and Reporting services has morphed into a full-fledged tent known as the Microsoft Data Platform. We will briefly introduce Azure as a whole after which focus will turn to the data specific and data adjacent services, covering as many as possible, after all, it seems more are added daily. Rather than a deep dive on one or two services, this session will answer five basic questions about each component:
1. What is it?
2. Who would it be used?
3. Why would it used?
4. How would it be used?
5. Where can more information be found?
At the end of the session you should be able to data services and have a brief idea of their use case thus enabling you to bring a more holistic solution back to the office.
