SQL Server specialist Gavin Payne discusses how the Microsoft Azure cloud platform has become an integral part of what’s now a very broad and deep Microsoft data platform. He begins by identifying the platform’s different cloud services and how they relate to traditional SQL Server services. Gavin then suggests how these cloud services can then be used with existing on-premises data platforms to create hybrid solutions – something that’s becoming popular with businesses of all sizes.
Gavin Payne is the Head of Digital Transformation at Coeo, a UK based Microsoft Gold Partner providing consulting and managed services for Microsoft data platform and analytics technologies. He is a Microsoft Certified Architect and a Microsoft Certified Master for SQL Server, and creates new Coeo services that help customers use digital technologies, such as cloud data platforms and advanced analytics solutions.
