Introducing Azure Synapse Analytics: A limitless analytics service with unmatched time to insight
Updated: November 18, 2019
Today, we are announcing Azure Synapse Analytics, a limitless analytics service, that brings together enterprise data warehousing and Big Data analytics. It gives you the freedom to query data on your terms, using either serverless on-demand or provisioned resources, at scale. Azure Synapse brings these two worlds together with a unified experience to ingest, prepare, manage, and serve data for immediate business intelligence and machine learning needs.
Simply put, Azure Synapse is the next evolution of Azure SQL Data Warehouse. We have taken the same industry-leading data warehouse to a whole new level of performance and capabilities. In fact, it’s the first and only analytics system to have run all TPC-H queries at petabyte-scale. Businesses can continue running their existing data warehouse workloads in production today with Azure Synapse and will automatically benefit from the new capabilities which are in preview. Businesses can put their data to work much more quickly, productively, and securely, pulling together insights from all data sources, data warehouses, and big data analytics systems.
