Organisations are progressively waking up to the need for, and power of, business intelligence - seeking ways to extract valuable insights from their data and turn them into actionable decisions.
With the advent of artificial intelligence (AI) and the increasing complexity of analytics workloads, businesses need a comprehensive solution that can integrate various tools and provide a simplified experience for users at every level. Microsoft Fabric is the answer to this challenge.
What Is Microsoft Fabric?
Microsoft Fabric is a ground-breaking offering that brings together three powerful components - Microsoft Power BI, Data Factory, and the next generation of Synapse - into a unified software as a service (SaaS) platform. This integration creates an enterprise-grade data foundation that offers an integrated and simplified experience for all analytics workloads and users.
One of the key benefits of Microsoft Fabric is its ability to provide a price-effective and easy-to-manage modern analytics solution for the era of AI. By combining the capabilities of Power BI, Data Factory, and Synapse, organisations can leverage the full potential of their data and derive meaningful insights without the need for complex infrastructure or costly investments. Fabric caters to a wide range of workloads and data professionals, offering experiences for data integration, data engineering, data warehousing, data science, real-time analytics, applied observability, and business intelligence.
Combined With Copilot
To further enhance the value creation with data, Microsoft is integrating Copilot into Microsoft Fabric. Copilot, soon to be available in preview, introduces natural language capabilities and a chat-based interface to generate code and queries, create AI plugins, enable custom Q&A, and tailor semantics and components within the plugin. This integration empowers users to leverage the power of language and conversation to streamline their analytics workflows. Whether it's generating code or developing custom AI solutions, Copilot simplifies the process and automates the heavy lifting, allowing users to focus on telling the right data story.
Microsoft Fabric is built upon OneLake, Microsoft's unified foundation for organisational data. OneLake provides a single source of truth, eliminating the need to extract, move, or replicate data across various systems. This unified data foundation not only reduces data sprawl but also ensures data integrity and enables persistent data governance. Organisations can trust that their data is secure, easily accessible, and can be leveraged across different workloads without the risk of inconsistent or unreliable information.
Further to its range of benefits, Fabric introduces a single pricing model that scales with growth, providing organisations with flexibility and cost efficiency. It is an open platform at every layer, eliminating any proprietary lock-ins and allowing seamless integration with Microsoft' wider range of products and services such as Microsoft 365 and Teams.
The deep integrations with Microsoft 365, Teams, and Copilot experiences empower users at every level, from data professionals to non-technical business users, to unlock more value from their data.
