Today, practically all businesses rely on data to run their operations, which raises the demand for enabling data-driven insights and decision-making at all levels of an organization.
The opportunity to effectively utilize data grows in tandem with its volume, diversity, and velocity. Data lakes and warehouses are two separate sorts of analytics streams but maintaining them involves more complexity. Additionally, analytics expands a variety of teams, tools, and systems; it is not just about DWs and DLs. Because everything from BI to AI is reliant on analytics data, it is difficult for all teams to design an analytics solution to fulfill all needs.
Clearly, the way in which data analytics is done needs to change.
Azure SQL Data Warehouse has been emerging as a key component of analytics strategy as more and more clients choose the cloud to run their businesses. Why: According to two independent benchmark evaluations, ADW leads the industry because it is up to 14 times faster and 94% less expensive than other cloud providers.
