Data is everywhere but too few businesses use it effectively. One of the reasons for this improvident state is time and technical skills needed for generating insights that can be transformed to competitive advantage. With Serverless SQL pool, this time to insights is significantly reduced. You can open SSMS, PowerBI or other tool which is using SQL language and create reports without loading data into database. This lecture will walk you through executing SQL queries on top of the Azure Storage and Azure CosmosDB and creating PowerBI reports.
