Start your metadata driven adventure in Azure Data Factory | Data Exposed: MVP Edition
Published Nov 29 2022 11:00 AM 966 Views

Azure Data Factory can connect to a lot of sources easily, combine it with the Integration Runtimes and you can reach into almost anywhere. But after setting up connections you have to build a pipeline to describe what data you want to get and where to put it. This could be repetitive and hard to maintain ...unless... you unleash the true power of ADF, its ability to dynamically inject metadata almost anywhere. In this episode of Data Exposed: MVP Edition with Anna Hoffman and André Kamman, we will use the built in Copy Data Tool to get you started on your metadata driven adventure.
