Learn best practices for advanced analytics, collaborate on technical design patterns for a modern data architecture, & deploy a fully functional POC including Azure Synapse and Power BI.
Built on Crayon’s Solution Accelerator framework, Crayon experts have created the Modern Analytics Solution Accelerator as a collaborative workshop intended to provide a comprehensive overview of the Azure Synapse Analytics. This engagement can be tailored to customer needs, but at its core will provide technical conversation and hands on exercises intended to prepare customers to build an Advanced Analytics and AI solution, presented in an easily consumed format that includes relatable scenarios built using publicly available sample data sets. At the conclusion of the engagement, customers will be left with a fundamental understanding of patterns and best practices related to doing big data analytics and AI in Azure Synapse Analytics as well as a functional proof of concept that can be built using custom data or sample data provided.
