Microsoft Build 2023: Microsoft launches Fabric – a unified data and analytical tool

2 min read

At the ongoing Build 2023 event, Microsoft has launched a new data and analytical tool called the Microsoft Fabric. It comes with built-in SaaS, multi-cloud data lake called OneLake. All Fabric workloads are automatically wired into OneLake, just like all Microsoft 365 applications are wired into OneDrive. 

Fabric is an end-to-end analytics product that addresses every aspect of an organization’s analytics needs. Data in the Fabric is organized in an intuitive data hub, and automatically indexed for discovery, sharing, governance, and compliance. 

As announced by the company, Microsoft Fabric comes with seven core workloads that include 

  • Data Factory (preview) to provide more than 150 connectors to cloud and on-premises data sources, drag-and-drop experiences for data transformation, and the ability to orchestrate data pipelines.
  • Synapse Data Engineering (preview) to enable great authoring experiences for Spark, instant start with live pools, and the ability to collaborate.
  • Synapse Data Science (preview) to offer an end-to-end workflow for data scientists to build sophisticated AI models, collaborate easily, and train, deploy, and manage machine learning models. 
  • Synapse Data Warehousing (preview) to provide a converged lake house and data warehouse experience with industry-leading SQL performance on open data formats.
  • Synapse Real-Time Analytics (preview) to enable developers to work with data streaming in from the Internet of Things (IoT) devices, telemetry, logs, and more, and analyze massive volumes of semi-structured data with high performance and low latency.
  • Power BI in Fabric which provides industry-leading visualization and AI-driven analytics that enable business analysts and business users to gain insights from data. The Power BI experience is also deeply integrated into Microsoft 365, providing relevant insights where business users already work.  
  • Data Activator (coming soon) provides real-time detection and monitoring of data and can trigger notifications and actions when it finds specified patterns in data—all in a no-code experience. 

Microsoft says that customers can use a single product with a unified experience and architecture that provides all the capabilities required for a developer to extract insights from data and present it to the business user with Fabric.

Microsoft Fabric is powered by AI. It comes with Azure OpenAI Service at every layer to help customers unlock the full potential of their data, enabling developers to leverage the power of generative AI against their data and assisting business users to find insights in their data.

The new analytics tool comes integrated with the Microsoft 365 applications. Customers can purchase a single pool of computing that powers all Fabric workloads and create solutions that leverage all workloads freely without any friction in their experience or commerce.
