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.
