Azure Synapse Analytics Masterclasses – Migrate and Modernize

Avanade and Microsoft are teaming up once again for four additional sessions, following the Azure Synapse Analytics Masterclasses. Based on the feedback and the Q&A questions from the previous series, our experts will focus on how to migrate and modernize. You will learn how to get the most out of advanced analytics, as we deep dive into a different topic each week.­

Starting Friday June 4th, we invite you to join us for a four-week series of interactive one-hour sessions. We are pleased to announce a key expert from Databricks will join us for the first event. Similar to the first series no need to just take our word for it, as we will be sharing real life examples from companies across Europe. Each session will follow with a live Q&A so be sure to stay until the end.

About the modules

  • Module 1, June 4th – Migrate and modernize to Azure Synapse Analytics and Azure Databricks.
    For this first session, Avanade, Databricks and Microsoft are teaming up to get you up to speed on why there has never been a better time for switching to modern, cloud-based Big Data platforms with Azure Databricks, Azure HD Insights and/or Azure Synapse. Learn how to drive innovation and productivity, exceed business goals and reduce business costs. Regardless of your On-Prem provider.
    Ryan, Toby and Arancha will also provide insights into our combined experience with Hadoop Migration projects in particular, and how to migrate environments confidently, easily and at low risk. There are many reasons to migrate, join to learn the benefits for your business.

  • Module 2, June 11th – Modernize your on-premise legacy data warehouse to Azure Synapse Analytics.
    Join Arancha and Ryan for module 2 to hear how you can modernize your legacy data warehouse workloads to Azure Synapse Analytics. Achieve scaled agility, cost reduction, accelerated time to insight so you can innovate confidently with data-driven decisions.
    Learn how Azure Synapse Pathway automates manual code conversions to be faster, less prone to human error and more cost efficient. One of the more complex migration tasks is translating SQL code. To convert hundreds of thousands of lines of legacy code across database objects requires thousands of hours of intensive labor and knowledge transfer of business and system logic, which are prone to human error and incur a large cost.

  • Module 3, June 18th – Unlock your SAP data gold mine.
    Grab a coffee and learn from Ayman and Ida how to unlock your SAP data by integrating your SAP with non-SAP data (incl. IoT, PoS, applications) in Azure for immediate insights and application innovation to transform your business. In this session Ayman will discuss how to bring your SAP data to Azure, taking advantage of the “Common and Industry Data Models”. We show you how to accelerate your journey to the Modern Azure Analytics Data estate. Furthermore we will discuss the benefits of having a cloud-based, scalable and flexible solution to deliver your Advanced Analytics and Machine Learning use cases.
    Ida will then walk you through some of the most familiar challenges, data integration scenarios and use cases our clients are facing today. By combining the best of SAP and Microsoft, she will show you how to get started with migrating workloads to Azure Synapse Analytics and unlock the value of your SAP data for easy use in modern analytics projects.

  • Module 4, June 25th – Data migration and platform modernization
    Migrating to Azure as a Modern Data Platform can be bewildering and challenging.
