It’s clear that the fragmentation which exists today between databases, analytics, and governance products must be addressed. To help organizations unlock these new capabilities, we shared several exciting announcements today at Microsoft Build that demonstrate our continued innovation and investment in the data products our customers have come to know and trust.
We are pleased to share that Microsoft is named a Leader in the 2021 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Cloud Database Management Systems. This placement reflects our ability to execute and our completeness of vision, and we feel is a testament to our ongoing innovation and the integration of a comprehensive data portfolio into Microsoft’s cloud data ecosystem.
There are three core capabilities businesses need that together drive successful transformation: limitless database scale and performance, unmatched analytics and insights, and unified data governance. Today we shared a number of announcements to help organizations evolve rapidly even in the face of sustained uncertainty. Across industries, companies are investing in these core capabilities to ensure they have the flexibility to innovate anywhere and meet evolving business needs.
Today, we are excited to announce that Azure Purview is generally available. Every organization can now build a unified data governance solution to maximize the value of their data in the cloud.
From edge to cloud, companies are eager to find innovative solutions that meet them where they are. Today’s business environment is increasingly complex, and customers tell us they need solutions that are multi-cloud, platform-agnostic, and offer integrated apps and services that are always up to date. Today, we’re announcing the general availability of Azure SQL enabled by Azure Arc to help customers manage their data and databases simply and efficiently.
For any organization to succeed in a world of unprecedented uncertainty, a new level of agility is required.
Since its preview announcement, we’ve witnessed incredible excitement and adoption of Azure Synapse from our customers and partners.
We live in demanding times and change is happening faster than ever before. Data has always provided important insights, however to navigate the rapidly evolving landscape, adding layers of intelligence where AI advances decision making and applies predictive analytics at the edge to unlock new possibilities is pivotal.
With the exponential growth in data, organizations find themselves in increasingly heterogenous data estates, full of data sprawl and silos, spreading across on-premises data centers, the edge, and multiple public clouds.
Today, businesses are forced to maintain two types of analytical systems, data warehouses and data lakes. Data warehouses provide critical insights on business health.
