Azure Synapse Analytics is an evolution of Azure SQL Data Warehouse. Azure SQL Data Warehouse was a massively parallel processing (MPP) cloud-based, scale-out, relational database, designed to process and store large volumes of data within the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. But, due to the circumstances of data lakes, the decision-making process becomes quite ineffective.
To overcome this aspect, Microsoft launches Azure Synapse Analytics to enhance machine learning and business intelligence capabilities.
So, instead of adding new features to each of their services, Microsoft decided to explore how they could combine their key capabilities. This will help customers gather and analyze all the varying data, to solve data inefficiency, and work together.
Also, Azure Synapse connects natively to several other Azure data services, including:
- Azure Machine Learning
- Microsoft PowerBI
- Azure Data Lake
- Azure Blob Storage
- Azure Active Directory
