Building the Case for Microsoft Fabric

Microsoft launched many new ways to innovate through technology recently at one of its marquee events — Build, held every year in Seattle. This year the event was both live and digitally delivered to millions, the world over, and you may’ve been one of them. 

In between announcements, we grabbed some time with Hitachi Solutions Vice President of Data & Analytics, Simon Nuss, and Senior Power BI Architect, Sandeep Pawar, to unpack for business leaders some key takeaways from Microsoft’s announcement of Fabric, and what that means for enterprises and how it will impact their modern data platform.

If you haven’t heard, Microsoft announced its latest data platform called Microsoft Fabric, built to make data access and insights more easily accessible and integrated. Fabric will be an end-to-end data and analytics platform, based on updated versions of existing tools, delivering a unified architecture, security, and data-sharing experience in the form of Software as a Service (SaaS). For nearly two years, the data team at Hitachi Solutions under Simon’s direction has been working with Microsoft on Fabric to develop the platform.  

Simon and Sandeep explain how Fabric is the next evolution and consolidation of data architecture and how it extends the capabilities of data & analytics solutions to a broader audience. Microsoft Fabric is intended, in typical Microsoft fashion, to create an environment that is accessible and can be effectively democratized to business users of all types, including those that don’t have a deep technical understanding. Microsoft Fabric breaks down silos that have grown up around the functions involved in the end-to-end processing of information that ultimately should allow organizations to make better, more informed decisions.
