This book is an exhaustive guide to designing and implementing data solutions on Azure. It covers the process of managing data from end to end, starting from data collection all the way through transformation, distribution, and consumption.
Modern Data Architecture on Azure begins with an introduction to the fundaments of data management, followed by a demonstration of how to build relational and non-relational data solutions on Azure. Here, you will learn data processing for complex analysis and how to work with CSV and JSON files. Moving forward, you will learn the foundational concepts of big data architecture, along with data management patterns and technology options offered by Azure. From there, you’ll be walked through the data architecture process, including data consortium on Azure, enterprise data governance, and much more. The book culminates with a deep dive into data architecture frameworks with data modeling.
After reading this book, you will have a thorough understanding of data design and analytics using Azure, allowing you to collect and analyze massive amounts of data to optimize business performance, forecast future results, and more.
