Microsoft said a new service has been focused on helping large businesses put to use the large amounts of data that has been stored in corporate systems.
The Azure Synapse system will be launched at a Florida event and is a part of the quickly-growing cloud computing unit of the company, which has risen the company’s share in the last five years.
The purpose of the tool is to help companies to inspect large amounts of data in order to help make better business decisions. Corporate vice president of Azure Data, Rohan Kumar said that the Synapse is focused on solving two problems for businesses that build these systems.
The first issue being that businesses require different software tools in order to examine data that is stored in systems such as customer databases where it includes names and addresses are lined in rows and columns in the form of a spreadsheet compared to systems such as website monitoring tools, where clicks get recorded as a stream of numbers and time stamps.
The tool has been designed to manage both of these types of data, Kumar told Reuters.
The second is that the system will automatically be capable of handling tasks for building a system in order to analyse data, lessening the work required from computer programmers. Microsoft said that some of its customers are Deutsch Bank and Unilever which will be testing out this system.
Kumar said, “What we’re seeing with our customers is these projects that would typically take multiple months are now getting completed within a day.”
