    I recently completed Mike McQuillan's ADLS and USQL course on Pluralsight in addition to PragmaticWorks class on ADF v2. I really appreciate these tools and see the advantages with respect to server side ETL using SSIS (the crux of my experience).

    My question is this - when to use ADLS and ADF, the exercises in ADLS were largely importing flat files using C# operators to transform etc., but this largely seemed like one time, ad-hoc jobs, I didn’t get that this can be or  meant to be triggered, scheduled to run as a production job etc. Whereas custom pipelines in ADF can be engineered to facilitate a DWH use case for example and scheduled daily, hourly, based off another sequence etc.

    Am I missing something here? Whats the best way to differentiate? With respect to actual use cases, what is a solid ground rule for these technologies?
