Today’s business managers depend heavily on reliable data integration systems that run complex ETL/ELT workflows (extract, transform/load and load/transform data). These workflows allow businesses to ingest data in various forms and shapes from different on-prem/cloud data sources; transform/shape the data and gain actionable insights into data to make important business decisions.
With the general availability of Azure Databricks comes support for doing ETL/ELT with Azure Data Factory. This integration allows you to operationalize ETL/ELT workflows (including analytics workloads in Azure Databricks) using data factory pipelines that do the following:
- Ingest data at scale using 70+ on-prem/cloud data sources
- Prepare and transform (clean, sort, merge, join, etc.) the ingested data in Azure Databricks as a Notebook activity step in data factory pipelines
- Monitor and manage your E2E workflow
Take a look at a sample data factory pipeline where we are ingesting data from Amazon S3 to Azure Blob, processing the ingested data using a Notebook running in Azure Databricks and moving the processed data in Azure SQL Datawarehouse.
