Azure Analysis Services on top of Azure Data Lake?

Recently I have seen implementations of Analysis Services that go directly to the Data Lake. In order to speed things up and to remove redundancy, there is no relational data storage even if the data is relational in nature.

Three ways to build SSIS projects in VSTS

When setting up Continuous Integration in VSTS, chances are you’ll run into the problem of building SSIS projects: where database projects are building just fine, SSIS just doesn’t build out-of-the-box (at least not at the time of writing). Here’s how you fix it:
