Building a Lakehouse on the Microsoft Intelligent Data Platform

The Data Lakehouse - it's an emerging architecture being driven by the spark community, but it has a real place within the Microsoft ecosystem. But where do you start? What makes it different? How does it work within Synapse Analytics specifically?

This session aims to give you that context. We'll look at how spark-based engines work and how we can use them within Synapse Analytics. We'll dig into Delta, the underlying file format that enables the Lakehouse, and take a tour of how the Synapse compute engines interact with it. Finally, we'll draw out our whole data architecture, understanding how the Lakehouse serves our whole data community.
