Overview of Azure Synapse Analytics:

Azure Synapse is an integrated analytics service that accelerates time to insight across data warehouses and big data systems. Azure Synapse brings together the best of SQL technologies used in enterprise data warehousing, Spark technologies used for big data, and Pipelines for data integration and ETL/ELT. 

Azure Synapse Analytics is an evolution of Azure SQL Data Warehouse. Azure SQL Data Warehouse was a massively parallel processing (MPP) cloud-based, scale-out, relational database, designed to process and store large volumes of data within the Microsoft Azure cloud platform. At its core, Azure Synapse contains the MPP, scale-out technology of Azure SQL Data Warehouse (referred to as Synapse SQL pool). However, Microsoft has added a few other features that make this a more powerful and unique data analytics solution in the market. 

Azure Synapse Analytics goes beyond enabling cost-effective data management and analytics by leveraging the power and scale of the cloud: Azure Synapse will break down silos that exist today because of teams, data, and skills, and enables insights for all by integrating with Power BI and Azure Machine Learning and AI.
