Mapping Data Flows in Azure Data Factory: Building Scalable ETL Projects in the Microsoft Cloud

Book description

Build scalable ETL data pipelines in the cloud using Azure Data Factory’s Mapping Data Flows. Each chapter of this book addresses different aspects of an end-to-end data pipeline that includes repeatable design patterns based on best practices using ADF’s code-free data transformation design tools. The book shows data engineers how to take raw business data at cloud scale and turn that data into business value by organizing and transforming the data for use in data science projects and analytics systems. 

The book begins with an introduction to Azure Data Factory followed by an introduction to its Mapping Data Flows feature set. Subsequent chapters show how to build your first pipeline and corresponding data flow, implement common design patterns, and operationalize your result. By the end of the book, you will be able to apply what you’ve learned to your complex data integration and ETL projects in Azure. These projects will enable cloud-scale big analytics and data loading and transformation best practices for data warehouses.
