Data Factory
Data Factory is one of the many new PaaS services to come to Azure. Kristina will discuss how and why you should use it, and where it fits in the data platform story. Kristina will also show each of the different elements (Data Sets, Pipelines, Slices, Linked Services), how to set it up using JSON, and how to automate it using PowerShell.
