Kaiser Larsen Senior Product Marketing Manager, Azure Synapse Analytics

The virtual event Azure Synapse Analytics: How It Works is now available on demand. In demos and technical discussions, Microsoft customers explain how they’re using the newest Azure Synapse Analytics capabilities to deliver insights faster, bring together an entire analytics ecosystem in a central location, reduce costs, and transform decision-making.

This post outlines five key reasons to view the one-hour event.

Learn how to deliver powerful insights with speed and ease

Today, it’s critical to have a data-driven culture in your organization. Analytics play a pivotal role in helping many organizations make insights-driven decisions—decisions to transform supply chains, develop new ways to interact with customers, and evaluate new offerings.

At Azure Synapse Analytics: How It Works, customers showed how they combine data ingestion, data warehousing, and big data analytics in a single cloud-native service using Azure Synapse. If you’re a data engineer trying to wrangle multiple data types from multiple sources to create pipelines or a database administrator with responsibilities over your data lake and data warehouse, you’ll see how all this can be simplified in a code-free environment.

Customers also demonstrated how they give their employees access to unprecedented, real-time insights from enterprise data using Azure Synapse with built-in Power BI authoring.

Achieve unprecedented ROI

Companies featured at the event have demonstrated significant cost reductions with cloud analytics solutions. Compared to on-premises solutions, these solutions:

  • Require lower implementation and maintenance costs.

  • Reduce analytics project development time.

  • Provide access to more frequent innovation.

  • Deliver higher levels of security and business continuity.

  • Help ensure a better competitive advantage and higher customer satisfaction.

With cloud analytics, organizations pay for data and analytics tools only when needed, pausing consumption when not in use. They can reallocate budget previously spent on hardware and infrastructure management to optimizing processes and launching new projects. In fact, customers average a 271 percent ROI with Azure Synapse—savings that come from lower operating costs, increased productivity, reallocating staff to higher-value activities, and increasing operating income due to improved analytics. Analytics in Azure is up to 14 times faster and costs 94 percent less than other cloud providers.

Deliver a unified analytics experience to everyone in your organization

BI specialists, data engineers, and other IT and data professionals are using Azure Synapse to build, manage, and optimize analytics pipelines, using a variety of skillsets.

  • Data engineers can use a code-free visual environment for managing data pipelines.

  • Database administrators can automate query optimization and easily explore data lakes.

  • Data scientists can build proofs of concept in minutes.

  • Business analysts can securely access datasets and use Power BI to build dashboards in minutes—all while using the same analytics service.
