In today’s data-driven world, companies need the ability to efficiently extract valuable insights from their ever-growing data stores. This requires implementing a modern analytics architecture built on flexible, scalable tools.
Recognizing this need, Microsoft developed Azure Databricks and Microsoft Fabric – innovative platforms purpose-built for lakehouse analytics. Azure Databricks provides a collaborative Apache Spark environment optimized for big data workloads. Microsoft Fabric offers a suite of data services like storage, governance, and integrated notebooks.
Together, these technologies enable organizations to ingest, process, and analyze all their data in one location. However, many enterprises struggled to implement these tools and maximize their capabilities.
That’s why Packt partnered with Microsoft to produce an in-depth guidebook titled “Lakehouse Analytics with Microsoft Fabric and Azure Databricks.”
