Overall Satisfaction with Azure Data Factory

We are using Azure Data Factory for a client of the health care sector. It has helped us to migrate data from multiple sources into a single destination and create data-driven workflows in the cloud for automating data movement. Also, we are performing machine learning algorithms on the data with Azure ML to generate reports.
  • Easy to create ETL workflows
  • Pre-defined templates to design the pipelines
  • Easy to create schedules to run the pipelines
  • Fast and reliable
  • Interactive user interface with drag/drop and multiple useful options on the dashboard
  • Easy integration with other Azure services
  • Needs more flexibility for moving ADF pipelines between UAT and PROD environments
  • Documentation needs improvement as details about micro functionalities are not elaborated with enough examples
  • Pay per use model helped us to reduce costs
  • Highly scalable as per the demand
  • Fully managed data integration
