Microsoft Graph Data Connect

A secure, high-throughput connector designed to copy selected Microsoft 365 productivity datasets into your Azure tenant

Mine rich insights from your Microsoft Graph data

Microsoft Graph is the Microsoft 365 data that describes the patterns of productivity, identity and security in an organisation. Microsoft Graph Data Connect offers developers a highly secure, efficient way to copy Microsoft Graph datasets, at scale, into Azure Data Factory. It’s an ideal way to train AI and machine learning models that uncover rich organisational insights and deliver new value to your productivity solutions.
Granular consent ensures that applications can only access the data that’s essential to their function, and not more
Data Governance lets developers specify a set of detailed policies to minimise compliance management overhead
Scalable Data Access delivers Microsoft Graph data to your app, on a repeatable schedule, with a few simple steps
Discrete Azure services allow developers to collocate an app and its data in a separately provisioned Azure instance

Access Microsoft 365 datasets at scale

Copy data at scale from a Microsoft 365 tenant and move it directly into Azure Data Factory without writing code. Get the data you need, delivered to your application on a repeatable schedule, in just a few simple steps.

Ensure that apps only access the data they need

Control how your organisation’s data is accessed with the Microsoft Graph Data Connect granular consent model. It requires that developers specify exactly what types of data or filter content their application will access. Likewise, administrators must give explicit approval to access Microsoft 365 data before access is granted.

Safeguard your data with built-in security

Deploy applications that access large datasets with confidence. Built-in security and data governance capabilities allow app developers to specify a set of detailed policies with which they intend to comply. Microsoft 365 administrators then review and consent to these policies, ensuring compliance.

Comprehensive security and compliance, built in

Only pay for the access you need

Whether you’re building your first prototype or an enterprise-wide solution, pricing is simple – you’ll pay a flat, metered rate for every thousand objects extracted through Microsoft Graph Data Connect through your Azure Data Factory instance.
