Why do business users rely on experts or more experienced colleagues to get the information they need to make decisions?
Even in today’s modern enterprises, business users often rely on experts or more experienced colleagues to get the information they need to make decisions. Why? Because data is scattered across multiple – cloud and on-prem – data estates, without any clear rules or definitions to go by. To help companies get a birds-eye view of their data landscape and ‘democratise’ their data assets, Microsoft offers Azure Purview: a powerful data management solution to help you maximise your data business value.
A core component of modern data management and central to effective data governance, Purview functions as an intelligent data catalog: a central repository of metadata (‘data about your data’) enriched with data management and semantic search capabilities. The application simply connects with your data estates to create and add rich metadata, paving the way for self-service data discovery and laying the groundwork for a modern data platform.
