Good news for all Azure and Azure Synapse Analytics users, especially the Data Engineers among us. With Link for SQL, data integration can become much more relaxed.

Azure Synapse Link was already usable for Azure Cosmos DB and is a cloudnative Hybrid Transactional and Analytical Processing (HTAP) capability and is now also available for SQL Server and AZure SQL Database. It enables you the possibility of real-time analytics. Azure Synapse Link provides seamless integration between your databases and Azure Synapse Analytics [1].

For companies using Azure that could mean that often time-consuming building of ETL and ELT could be dispensed or at least reduced. Microsoft provides you the possibility of low/no-code, near real-time data replication from your SQL-based operational stores into Azure Synapse Analytics.
