Data is the key input for Analytics. Building and implementing data platforms such as Data Lakes, modern Data Marts, and Analytics at scale require the right cloud platform that Azure provides through its services.

The book starts by sharing how analytics has evolved and continues to evolve. Following the introduction, you will deep dive into ingestion technologies. You will learn about Data processing services in Azure. You will next learn about what is meant by a Data Lake and understand how Azure Data Lake Storage is used for analytical workloads.

You will then learn about critical services that will provide actual Machine Learning capabilities in Azure. The book also talks about Azure Data Catalog for cataloging, Azure AD for Access Management, Web Apps and PowerApps for cloud web applications, Cognitive services for Speech, Vision, Search and Language, Azure VM for computing and Data Science VMs, Functions as serverless computing, Kubernetes and Containers as deployment options. Towards the end, the book discusses two use cases on Analytics.
