Extract, Transform , & Load with Azure Data Factory
Key Points in Azure AI/ML
ETL (extract, transform, load) is one of the most widely used data integration methodologies.
ETL consists of three steps:
Firstly, Data is extracted from a source location, such as a file or database.
Next, the data is changed from its original format to meet the schema of the target site.
Final step is to load the modified data into a destination place, such as a data warehouse, where it may be used for analytics and reporting.
The data you require for your analytics tasks could be in a variety of formats and places, both inside and outside your company. This data should be maintained in a centralised repository, such as a data warehouse, for best efficiency. ETL is an important aspect of the data transfer process since it makes integrating several data sources easier and more efficient.
Finally, ETL and ELT, set of data integration paradigm, are closely related to each other. The order in which ETL and ELT complete the “Load” and “Transform” processes differs. To put it another way, ELT transforms data that has already been stored into the data warehouse. When consuming vast amounts of unstructured data, ELT allows data professionals to pick and select the data they wish to transform, saving time.

Azure Data Factory (ADF) is a service that enables developers to combine data from various sources. It’s a Microsoft Azure platform for resolving issues with data sources, integration, and storage of relational and non-relational data. Azure Data Factory’s job is to build data factories on the cloud. To put it another way, ADF is a cloud-based managed service designed for complicated hybrid extract-transform-load (ETL), extract-load-transform (ELT), and data integration projects. ADF also includes an always-up-to-date monitoring dashboard, so you can deploy your data pipelines and immediately see them in your monitoring dashboard. Also, HD Insight, Hadoop, Spark, Azure Data Lake, and other computing services are supported by Azure Data Factory. Addend Analytics can help you maneuver ADF with ease!
