Back to basics

It’s a common situation: almost every organization uses several analytics tools, which costs a lot of time. Time to learn how to use them, but also to keep an accurate overview of all the licenses. Microsoft Fabric puts an end to that. With Fabric, your organization doesn’t have to worry about the technology; you can simply focus on the results. Microsoft takes care of everything, from applications to networking. Fabric is like an umbrella that covers all the necessary tools, such as Azure Synapse, Azure Data Factory and Power BI. They are all bundled together. Because this is so much easier, it’s also no longer complex to have insights in platform usage and costs. They remain manageable through the unified pricing model.

All dataservices from OneLake

Microsoft Fabric uses Microsoft’s latest technology called OneLake. This environment seamlessly integrates and unlocks all data from different sources, both structured and unstructured data. The underlying technology eliminates the need to physically consolidate and replicate data, regardless of structure, technology or location. With smart shortcuts, even data from other cloud environments are easy to be retrieved. As a result, you no longer need different data lakes and other forms of data storage. You can now provide unified data for all forms of analytics from a central location.

Sustainability in data governance

Fabric enables you to properly manage and secure data because of easily working from one single environment. It is possible to determine which data someone has access to per user, regardless of which tooling or data source they use. Even if users share data, Fabric allows you to apply authorizations to sensitive information. This prevents data from getting into the wrong hands. Moreover, the security of all data is managed centrally. That helps your organization considerably to keep the security of all tools up to date, in less time than before.

User friendly and better collaboration

With Fabric,  very user in your organization can get started with data. It’s no longer complex and an IT intervention is not necessary anymore. Thanks to the user-friendly interface, everyone is up and running with new forms of analytics in no time. The platform also encourages collaboration between different departments, as well as between data engineers, data scientist and data analysts. They all work in the same environment and have access to the same data. For example, data engineers can produce standard datasets that data analysts and data scientists can easily use.
