About this Hands-on Lab

In this lab, we will create and configure an instance of Azure Synapse Analytics. In addition to basic provisioning, we will explore Synapse Studio and learn how to find sample data and scripts, learn how to create SQL pools, and explore how to allow other Azure services and resources to access our new workspace.

Additional Resources

For this scenario, you work for Wally's Wonderful World of Widgets, a company that — you guessed it — sells widgets.

They are currently on-premises and looking to move to Azure.

They have a need for complex queries and have massive amounts of data. They think Azure Synapse might be a perfect fit.

You have been tasked with standing up an environment that could be later loaded with data and used for a board demonstration.
