Microsoft Fabric
is a one-stop-shop for a full data platform, from ingesting source data to data visualization across each persona, from Data Engineer to Power BI user and everyone in between. Fabric is Microsoft’s shiny new all-encompassing Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) analytics platform.

It brings together Azure Data Factory, Azure Synapse Analytics and Power BI into a single cohesive platform without the overhead of setting up resources, maintenance, and configuration. It’s a complete end-to-end analytics solution in little time with all capabilities baked in, from Data Integration and Data Engineering to Data Science, and real-time analytics. We can say Fabric is an all-in-one analytics solution for enterprises that covers everything from data movement to data science, Real-Time Analytics, and business intelligence. It offers a comprehensive suite of services, including data lake, data engineering, and data integration, all in one place.

With Fabric, Microsoft is ambitiously embracing the Data Lakehouse architecture in a Mesh-like vision. OneLake is the key enabler of this architecture and the capability to organize data with ‘Domains’ and ‘Workspaces’.

With Fabric, no need to piece together different services from multiple vendors. It’s a highly integrated, end-to-end, and easy-to-use product that is designed to simplify analytics needs. The platform is built on a foundation of Software as a Service (SaaS), which takes simplicity and integration to a whole new level.
