Azure Data Factory Valuable Features
Senior Manager at a tech services company with 51-200 employees
The overall architecture has been very valuable to us. It has allowed us to scale up pretty rapidly. That's something that has been very good for us.
The solution can scale very easily.
The stability is very good and has improved very much over time.
Azure Data Factory's most valuable features are the packages and the data transformation that it allows us to do, which is more drag and drop, or a visual interface. So, that eases the entire process.
Azure Data Factory setup is quite user-friendly.

Data Factory itself is great. It's pretty straightforward. You can easily add sources, join and lookup information, etc. The ease of use is pretty good.
They have a lot of other components like a newer monitor, which helps track and generate alerts for any failed jobs and things of that nature, which is helpful.View full review »

Principal Consultant at a tech services company with 11-50 employees
I like the feature that allows you to connect to different sources. You can go through forms and click on them and you don't have to provide the scripts. The solution has a good interface and the integration with GitHub is very useful.
There is also a self-service integration that allows you to run the BTS pages on the SQL server from an SIS. Users have an option to configure this self-service integration engine to run items as a part of a pipeline of the Azure data factory.
The data pipeline and the orchestration functionality are the most valuable aspects of the solution.
The interface is very good. It seeks to be very responsive and intuitive.
The initial setup is very quick and easy.View full review »

The reason that we implemented this product is for the full integration with the whole Azure environment. It is very important because you don't have to deal with security, identity flow, or audit flow.
The security of the agent that is installed on-premises is very good. This is another important feature for us.
It comes with a lot of connectors out of the box, including support for SQL, Oracle, SAP, and ODBC.View full review »
