Microsoft Announces New Service In San Franciso

From Reuters News Service November 4, 2019

Microsoft Corp announced on Monday a new service aimed at helping large businesses put to use the huge amounts of data stored in systems. The Azure Synapse system, to be unveiled at an event in Florida, is part of the company’s fast-growing cloud computing unit, has driven the company's shares up over the past five years. The tool is meant to help companies build out systems that analyze large amounts of data to make better business decisions, such as whether a digital marketing campaign is driving more traffic to stores and websites.

Second, the Synapse system automatically handles some of the tasks for building out a system to analyze data, reducing the amount of work needed from computer programmers. Deutsch Bank and Unilever are among the customers testing the system, Microsoft said. "What we're seeing with our customers is these projects that would typically take multiple months are now getting completed within a day," Kumar said.

From Microsoft:

Azure Synapse is a limitless analytics service that brings together enterprise data warehousing and Big Data analytics. It gives you the freedom to query data on your terms, using either serverless on-demand or provisioned resources—at scale. Azure Synapse brings these two worlds together with a unified experience to ingest, prepare, manage, and serve data for immediate BI and machine learning needs. More at: Synapse Analytics.

Azure Synapse delivers insights from all your data, across data warehouses and big data analytics systems, with blazing speed. With Azure Synapse, data professionals can query both relational and non-relational data at petabyte-scale using the familiar SQL language. For mission-critical workloads, they can easily optimize the performance of all queries with intelligent workload management, workload isolation, and limitless concurrency.

Excellent News For Microsoft Programmers In San Francisco

Once again, Microsoft has found another venue for increasing the database programmer opportunities. Whenever a major database application update occurs at Microsoft, there is a ripple effect that impacts all other database platforms. Data that is first used in a major application, like Azure Synapse, is soon downloaded into other programs, like Microsoft Access and SQL Server, for other types of analysis.

At MS Access Solutions, we are frequently contacted by companies using the large scale database technologies who are seeking Microsoft Access database applications to analyze smaller data sets.

MS Access Solutions Custom Database Programmers

Microsoft Access is adatabase management software that provides storaga of information for analysis, reporting, and manipulation. Microsoft Access assists you in the analysis of small, medium, and large amounts of database information. MS Access also manages data and provides a methodology for relating data far more effectively than Microsoft Excel or other spreasheet platforms.

Spreadsheet software applications, like Microsoft Excel are excellent for storing, manipulting, and performing caculcations with small sets of data. Programs like Microsoft Excel typically provide an quick platform for creating data, viewing the data, developing formulas, and are generally easy to use. With Excel a user can sort, format, and filter data quickly and with relative ease. However, spreadsheets are not your best choice for manipulating hundreds or thousands of records, especially when the goal is to find just one entity, such as a customer, a contact, or some other entity you need to manipulate, view, or report. Spreadsheets are prone to errors, mostly in the form of duplicate entries. This makes manipulations, like adding and finding the sum, analysis, and final reporting quite difficult.

Best Database Solutions

We always seek the best solution for every database project in the planning phase and prior to any programming. Our prgrammers do not start developing any Microsoft Access database until we know the particulars of the project. Are you having problems with an old Micrsoft Access database? Perhaps your former Access programmer has left or disappeared? We've been a Microsoft Access programmer for over twenty five years, so we have plenty of experience with all kinds of Access issues.

Microsoft Builds New Campus Near San Francisco

Microsoft continues to expand into majore cities in the U.S. Although Microsoft corporate office is located near Seattle Washington, Microsoft sees the need to place offices in strategic business locations. The new Microsoft campus in Mountain View, near San Francisco, is a continuation of that approach.

The following material first appeared in the Microsoft Blog.

We were excited to use cross-laminated timber (CLT) to construct what will be the largest mass wood structure built to date in the U.S. The benefits of this for carbon footprint reduction are significant. Wood is a renewable product and the timber we used was considered deadwood, already diseased or dying from beetles in their natural habitat. In addition to CLT, many other building materials and processes were chosen to ensure our campus contributed to Microsoft's operational carbon emissions goal.

"While we've made progress toward our goal of cutting our operational carbon emissions by 75 percent by 2030, the magnitude and speed of the world's environmental changes have made it increasingly clear that we must do more. And we are taking new steps to do just that." – Brad Smith, Microsoft President and Chief Legal Officer.

The main structure's living roof, a collection of local plants native to California, will be walkable for all employees to enjoy. Third-party research shows that contact with nature is beneficial to our well-being, and can lead to improvements in mood, cognition, and health. There will also be natural light incorporated into every area of the campus, which will help employees keep their circadian rhythm or natural body clock. In a region where hard work is celebrated, these designs will make keeping the right balance between work and well-being easier.

Our Silicon Valley campus is scheduled to open in Summer 2020. If you are interested in being among the first to use the space, check out ways of joining here:

Access Programmer Opportunity

As the new Microsoft campus in San Francisco is rapidly approaching completion, this presents more opportunities for every Access programmer. Microsoft has a proven record of bringing programmers in house for customer training, consultations, and for the development of Access database programs. Much of the programming in this atmosphere will be aimed at utilizing Access for the web, Access connectivity to SQL Server as well as Access' role in Microsoft Azure SQL. At MS Access Solutions, we have the skills and experience to program your business database using a wide spectrum of associated Microsoft products. We know Microsoft Access connectivity and we've utilized many data platforms to connect with Access for data cration, manupulation, and reporting.
