Taking the First Look at Microsoft Azure Synapse 

New to the tech space is Microsoft Azure Synapse, an analytics platform that was launched in early 2020. Taking notes from the tried and true Azure SQL Data Warehouse, Synapse was developed to bring enterprise data warehousing and big data analytics into a single, comprehensive service. Most recently, CCG partnered with an Optical Manufacturer (who we'll call Optical Inc.) to take a closer look at their data processes to optimize operations, increase productivity, and predict revenue. Here is a summary of the customer story:

  •  Optical Inc. previously manually extracted data from SQL data mart to excel, and had no BI solution to automate insights nor provide self-service reporting 
  • CCG performed a Cloud assessment and fit Optical Inc. with Azure Synapse to unify disparate data sources, and enhance their analytics capabilities
  • Azure Blueprints was used to enable cloud architects with a repeatable set of Azure resources and standardized testing environments 
  • CCG empowered Optical Inc. to free up several resources dedicated to report generation, and increased visibility into analytics for immediate ROI

See, we promised we help businesses See Farther and Go Faster!
