Azure Data Factory (ADF) leaks – Microsoft’s ETL-in-the-cloud offering is coming

I wouldn’t normally put up a blog post simply to draw attention to someone else’s blog post but in this case, given my heritage with Microsoft’s existing ETL tool (SSIS) and my long interest in all things to do with cloud and data integration I thought this was worth mentioning.

Mary-Jo Foley has posted Microsoft readies new Azure Data Factory service in which she details a forthcoming service that Microsoft are bringing out on their Azure platform:

That service, known as Azure Data Factory, is meant to allow users to consolidate a number of Microsoft Azure services, along with select third-party services, into a more easily-managed analytics and data pipeline, according to sources who requested anonymity.

That is what i would refer to as a cloud-based ETL tool, the like of which I have been speculating about for some time. I’m looking forward to playing with this for real.


P.S. To whomever it may concern, it wasn’t me that leaked it OK Smile
