Pros
The most valuable feature of the solution is the analytics and that it can connect with Power BI.The most valuable feature is the incremental load because we do not need to refresh the entire data on a daily basis.Azure elasticity allows us to scale as much as we want, and it is pay-as-you-go, so we can scale up as we need to.The features we've found most valuable for data warehouses is extracting data, SSIS packages, and the DBs.The main advantage of using this solution is its ability to scale and handle very large amounts of data, in the petabyte range.The most valuable feature is the scalability.The MPP (Massively Parallel Processing) architecture helps to make things a lot faster.The initial setup was really easy and straightforward.

Cons
I would like my team to be able to build pipelines that integrate with the Azure Data Factory.I would like to see version control implemented into the data warehouse.The configuration for things like high-availability could be more user-friendly for non-technical users.I'm not entirely happy with the billing model. I'm not entirely happy with how the enterprise services are pretty expensive, but that's about it.With respect to what needs to be improved, concurrent connectivity has some limitations.It's pay as you go, so you never know what your bill is going to be beforehand, and that's scary for customers. If you have someone who makes a mistake and the program's a loop that is running all night, you could receive a very expensive bill.This is a young product in transition to the cloud and it needs more work before it is both settled as a product and competitive in the market.It would be of interest to improve things like the web service integration and availability in terms of being easy to create internal web services in the database.
