Azure Data Factory

Suitable for virtually any scenario that involves working with linked Service, so that it is possible to connect Azure Data Factory to storage services for SQL data in the cloud, and that it is possible to access them at any time. Serves to make the information much cleaner and have the desired formats and structures in case of working with time tracking or general employee work tracking applications, so it is easy to create accurate and aesthetically acceptable analysis for general tracking software. It is extremely useful if you do not have any data server service, as Azure Data Factory has the ability to maintain almost 90 different data connectors without the need to use a server.

Devart Excel Add-ins

Devart Excel Add-ins is really good for data comparison of one database table against another database table. There are plenty of times where the business users need help understanding with their Power BI data models are not connecting correctly and I use this tool to break down the differences between the tables they are trying to connect.

Azure Data Factory 7.0
Based on 2 answers
We have not had need to engage with Microsoft much on Azure Data Factory, but they have been responsive and helpful when needed. This being said, we have not had a major emergency or outage requiring their intervention. The score of seven is a representation that they have done well for now, but have not proved out their support for a significant issue

Alternatives Considered

Azure Data Factory

SSIS was used for on-premise SQL work, Azure data factory is required to unlock the full potential of Azure connected databases. The ease of configuration and the ability to schedule workflows solved so many data integration issues at speed. Without investing in ADF we would not have achieved the level of data integration we have.

Devart Excel Add-ins

Devart Excel stacks up very well against its alternatives. It has significant advantages as it keeps getting an update. Features are very much suitable for smaller organizations. For larger organizations the features cannot be used directly because of the size of the company and more native requirements of IT software requirements.
