Melissa Coates disambiguates “data flows” from “dataflows” because those are two totally different things:
It’s another terminology post! Earlier this week I was having a delightful lunch with Angela Henry, Kevin Feasel, Javier Guillen, and Jason Thomas. We were chatting about various new things. Partway thru our conversation Jason stops me because he thought I was talking about Power BI Dataflows when I was really talking about Azure Data Factory Data Flows. It was kind of a funny moment actually but it did illustrate that we have some overlapping terminology coming into our world.
So, with that inspiration, let’s have a chat about some of the new data flow capabilities in the Microsoft world, shall we?
Melissa clarifies the term “data flow” (or “dataflow” as the case may be) across several products in Microsoft’s BI stack. Worth the read.
