Copying data from On Prem SQL to ADLS with ADF and Biml – Part 1
We were able to write the BimlScript and generate the datasets and pipelines in about 35 hours. A previous ADF project without automation took about 3 hours per source table. If we had gone that route, we could have been looking at 350 – 500 hours to complete this part of the project. Visual Studio with Biml Express took about 5 minutes to generate everything. Deploying to Azure took about an hour. We are now looking into ARM templates for future deployments.
