It’s been a while since I’ve posted because in addition to my regular responsibilities (and taking a seminary course) I’ve been co-authoring a book!
Working with Packt Publishing on this book was a wonderful experience that I’m thankful to have been a part of. I hope this can be a help to the analytics community as a comprehensive resource for the PL-300 exam or for anyone else getting started using Power BI. I’d love for others to be able to read the book, pass the exam, and help further their career and reach their analytics and reporting goals.
Hello everyone. I just wanted to post something quick and share that July has been a busy month and while I won’t have a video this month, I do have many things coming up (amongst reorgs and team moves).
Rest assured more How To Analytics will be coming!
Azure Synapse Analytics SQL Serverless is a distributed data processing/query service over data that lives in your Azure Data Lake. The service enables access to data through the following functionalities:
A familiar T-SQL syntax to query data in place without the need to copy or load data into another data store
Integrated connectivity via the MSSQL driver that has wide support amongst business intelligence and other query tools
Synapse SQL Serverless was built for large-scale data processing. The service provides fault-tolerance and enables high reliability even for long-running queries involving very large datasets.
