Consuming SaaS Solutions with Azure Data Factory

Organizations today continue to leverage Software-as-a-Service solutions (SaaS). This presents a unique challenge for BI architects. Custom .NET activities in Azure Data Factory and Azure SQL can be used to present and analyze this information. This session will look at a completely cloud based production architecture using Azure Data Factory and Azure SQL. The session will focus on the mechanics necessary to consume SaaS data using Azure Data Factory. There are 4 core steps that will be demonstrated during the session: 1. Building a custom .NET activity for Azure Data Factory 2. Using Azure Storage and Azure Batch to publish and run the custom .NET activity 3. Building custom data sets and custom linked services for a SaaS solution 4. Running and monitoring a pipeline that leverages the custom .NET activity to write data to Azure SQL. At the end of the session, attendees should understand the architecture components required to build their own solutions in Azure.
