On May 23rd 2023 (at the Microsoft Build conference), Microsoft Fabric was announced in Public Preview.
Microsoft Fabric extends the promise of Azure Synapse integration to all analytics workloads from the data engineer to the business knowledge worker. It brings together Power BI, Data Factory, and the Data Lake, on a new generation of the Synapse data infrastructure. Delivered as a unified SaaS offering, it aims to reduce cost and time to value, while enabling new "citizen data science" capabilities.
We at endjin have been involved in the private preview over the last 6 months, and are very excited to share our analysis and opinions with you all. You can find our new Microsoft Fabric entry on our Azure Radar diagram for an overview of our thinking, but we also have plenty of fresh content being released every week to keep you in the loop.
This post will be kept up to date over the coming weeks with all the content we produce. All content will be published either on the endjin blog or the endjin YouTube channel. Do follow/subscribe so you don't miss a beat!
