[HDGEM] Pipelines and activities of Microsoft Azure Data Factory

In a Data Factory solution, you create one or more data pipelines. A pipeline is a logical grouping of activities. They are used to group activities into a unit that together perform a task.

Activities define the actions to perform on your data. For example, you may use a Copy activity to copy data from one data store to another data store. Similarly, you may use a Hive activity, which runs a Hive query on an Azure HDInsight cluster to transform or analyze your data. Data Factory supports two types of activities: data movement activities and data transformation activities.
