Generally available: Database templates in Azure Synapse Analytics
Published date: 27 April, 2022
Azure Synapse database templates are industry-specific schema definitions that help organizations break down application-specific data silos by providing a standardized way to store and shape data. These templates provide schemas for predefined business areas, enabling data to be loaded into a lake database in a structured way. A lake database essentially helps to create a metadata layer for data that’s in the lake using the no-code database designer.
Based on customer feedback, several enhancements have been made to the template exploration and customization experiences within the Azure Synapse workspace. You can now specify folder hierarchies using wildcards, clone lake databases, explore entities using relationship traversal, and more.
Additionally, templates for healthcare provider and insurer and clinical trials have been added to the existing list of templates bringing the total to 18 database templates.
