Second Topic: "Azure Data Catalog" - Zack Fanelle
As your organization grows, so does the number and type of data analytics consumers. No longer are C-level executives consuming BI, but directors, managers, and analysts require insight into their data. There are many analytics solutions in the market, but the first step to success in BI is to have your data documented and prepared. Identifying data assets is critical for implementing self-service business intelligence solutions.
We will be taking a closer look at Microsoft's Azure data organization tool, Azure Data Catalog. Microsoft authored this tool to document, track, and manage various enterprise data assets (on prem and in Azure). This tool is intended for organizations who aim to have future data projects progress expediently and efficiently.
