Ignite your app experiences with the right data

Data Factory can help independent software vendors (ISVs) enrich their SaaS apps with integrated hybrid data to deliver data-driven user experiences. Prebuilt connectors and data integration at scale help you focus on your users while Data Factory takes care of the rest.

Orchestrate, monitor, and manage pipeline performance

Maintaining pipelines with a rapidly changing data landscape can quickly become time consuming, involving manual interventions. In Azure Data Factory, monitor all your activity runs visually and improve operational productivity by setting up alerts proactively to monitor your pipelines. These alerts can then appear within Azure alert groups, ensuring that you’re notified in time to prevent downstream or upstream problems before they happen.

Hybrid data integration, simplified

In today’s data-driven world, big data processing is a critical task for every organization. To unlock transformational insights, data engineers need services that are built to simplify ETL and handle the complexities and scale challenges of big data integration.

With Azure Data Factory, it’s fast and easy to build code-free or code-centric ETL and ELT processes.
