Combine Your Exmon Monitoring Platform With Azure

With more and more companies realizing that the health of their business is only as good as the accuracy of its data, investing in a data monitoring platform like Exmon is an essential step. Not only a leader in providing real-time insight into your data’s health and performance, but Exmon can also connect seamlessly with the power and flexibility offered by Microsoft Azure with its SQL Azure, Azure Functions, Azure Synapse and Azure Data Factory.

Taking this into account, we can now take a look at why Azure is a good counterpart to your Exmon monitoring platform, including how each of the compatible Azure services can play an important role.

Why Choose Azure?

Cloud-based Azure offers a complete and comprehensive package of tools that when combined, result in a robust ecosystem for data management. A large part of the appeal of Azure lies in its scalability – meaning that companies can add or reduce resources to meet the demands of the business.

This in turn creates significant flexibility that allows for the easy control and management of the services, especially with the pay-as-you-go subscription resulting in organizations only using (and paying for) exactly what they require. 

Azure also provides a range of security services which are effective in safeguarding organizational data.

A Fully Managed Database Service

One of the Azure tools Exmon connects natively to is SQL Azure. SQL Azure is a fully managed and scalable relational database service. It offers high availability, automatic backups, and built-in security. 

It is an ideal choice for applications that require traditional relational database functionality and compatibility with SQL Server applications. SQL Azure seamlessly integrates with other Azure services and can be accessed using standard SQL Server tools.

Create, Orchestrate and Manage Data Pipelines With Ease

Azure Data Factory is a cloud-based data integration service for creating, orchestrating, and managing data pipelines. It facilitates the extraction, transformation, and loading (ETL) of data from various sources to destinations in the cloud or on-premises. 

With a visual interface, Data Factory allows easy design and monitoring of data workflows. It supports a wide range of data sources, including relational databases, cloud storage, and big data platforms and is commonly used for data migration, synchronization, transformation, and movement between different data stores and services. 

Importantly, the Data Factory also enables the use of the Azure Function activity, which can be activated and run after a linked service connection has been created. That linked service can then be used to specify the Azure Function that should be executed.

Comprehensive Data Analytics

With analytics being an essential part of the ecosystem, Azure Synapse (formerly known as Azure SQL Data Warehouse) is a powerful analytics service that integrates big data and data warehousing capabilities. 

Specifically designed to handle large-scale analytical workloads, Azure Synapse combines data warehousing, big data integration, and advanced analytics into a unified platform – also supporting structured and unstructured data and offering scalability for handling large data volumes.

A Robust Suite of Data Tools

The combination of SQL Azure, Azure Functions, Azure Synapse, and Azure Data Factory provides a robust and comprehensive suite of tools within the Azure ecosystem for data management, analytics, and integration. 

Together with the precise monitoring of the Exmon data governance platform, these services provide businesses with the ability to efficiently store, process, analyze, and integrate data, enabling trustworthy data for data-driven decision-making and innovation. Whether it’s managing relational databases, executing code in response to events, performing complex analytics on big data, or orchestrating data workflows, the Azure services offer distinct strengths and use cases tailored to different requirements. 

By leveraging this powerful combination with Exmon, organizations can unlock the full potential of their data assets and drive growth in the ever-evolving business landscape.
