Orchestrate, monitor and manage pipeline performance

Maintaining pipelines with a rapidly changing data landscape can quickly become time-consuming, involving manual interventions. In Azure Data Factory, you can not only monitor all of your activity runs visually, you can also improve operational productivity by setting up alerts proactively to monitor your pipelines. These alerts can then appear within Azure alert groups, ensuring that you’re notified in time to prevent downstream or upstream problems before they happen.
