Azure Synapse Analytics Database Templates

Santosh Balasubramanian shows off database templates in Azure Synapse Analytics:

Azure Synapse Analytics is a limitless analytics service that brings together data integration, enterprise data warehousing, and big data analytics. It gives you the freedom to query data on your terms, using either serverless or dedicated resources—at scale. Azure Synapse brings these worlds together with a unified experience to ingest, explore, prepare, manage, and serve data for immediate BI and machine learning needs.

One of the challenges that users in key industry areas face is how to describe and shape the mass of data that they are gathering. Most of this data is currently stored in data lakes or in application-specific data silos. The challenge is to bring all this data together in a standardized format enabling it to be more easily analyzed and understood and for ML and AI to be applied to it.

Azure Synapse solves this problem by introducing industry-specific templates for your data, providing a standardized way to store and shape data. These templates provide schemas for predefined business areas, enabling data to be loaded into a database in a structured way.

Read on to see what they can do, and try them out in a Synapse workspace.
