Once you have data in storage, you'll need to have some mechanism for transforming the data into a usable format. Azure Data Factory is a data integration service that is used to create automated data pipelines that can be used to copy and transform data. In this course, you'll learn about the Azure Data Factory and the Integration Runtime. You'll explore the features of the Azure Data Factory such as linked services and datasets, pipelines and activities, and triggers. Finally, you'll learn how to create an Azure Data Factory using the Azure portal, create Azure Data Factory linked services and datasets, create Azure Data Factory pipelines and activities, and trigger the pipeline manually or using a schedule. This course is one in a collection that prepares learners for the Microsoft Data Engineering on Microsoft Azure (DP-203) exam.
