  • Passing credentials between Azure Automation runbooks

    Update: Turns out there's an even easier way of achieving this than the method I've described in this blog post. Joe Levy explains all in the comments below.  I’ve been doing a lot of work lately using Azure Automation to run (what are essentially) Powershell scripts against Azure.

  • Azure Automation Pain Points

  • Azure Automation – the beginning of cloud ETL on Azure?

    I have maintained a watching brief on what I refer to as “cloud ETL”, that is the ability build ETL routines in a cloud environment and therefore leverage all the benefits that the cloud model brings*.

  • Victims of success

    I feel like every database project has major decisions now, which are remarkably fundamental to the direction that’s going to be taken. And it’s almost as if new options appear with ever-increasing frequently. Consider a typical database project, involving a transactional system to support an application, with extracts into a data warehouse ...

  • Cloud – the forecast is improving

    There is a lot of discussion about “the cloud”, and how that affects people’s data stories. Today the discussion enters the realm of T-SQL Tuesday, hosted this month by Jorge Segarra.
